From blockages and line breaks to cross bores and pest infestations, a lot can happen at any given moment in the water and sewer lines under your feet.
Your health, safety, and money are at stake any time a sewer backs up or a water line breaks. And with approximately 240,000 water main breaks occurring annually across the United States, there are too many opportunities for something to go wrong in any U.S. neighborhood or municipality.
Fortunately, routine inspection and maintenance of water and sewer systems can prevent catastrophe by identifying issues before they become serious problems.
All GPRS VPI reports are certified by the National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO), which sets industry standards for assessing, maintaining, and rehabilitating underground infrastructure.
Every GPRS client is provided with a NASSCO report after one of our Project Managers completes a pipe inspection on their job site.
We pride ourselves on our ability to rapidly respond to any job site anywhere in the country. With over 300 Project Managers stationed in every major market across the U.S., you can rest assured that we will arrive promptly to your job site to complete your project. And we will be able to handle whatever unique circumstances we may encounter once we get there.
GPRS Video Pipe Inspection services can help discover a collapsed sewer lateral, duct, or an unknown blockage in a pipe. This service limits project delays and budget overruns by locating the exact impediment in your water or sewer line including bellies, collapses, tree roots, lateral taps, cross bores, or other damages
Using robotic video pipe cameras, push cameras, and lateral launch cameras, we can not only inspect, but also fully map water and sewer systems to ensure you have a full and clear picture of what’s going on under your feet.
Lateral launch sewer inspections are utilized when a typical visual inspection of a pipe or water system isn’t feasible. Using a specialized robotic crawler equipped with a video camera, we can perform cross bore investigations – searching for dangerous and unintended intersections of utility lines - as well as map the interior condition of hard-to-reach pipes. A pipe is inspected from the mainline to the lateral during this process, meaning you receive a comprehensive analysis of the overall health of your system.
Manholes are vertical access points to sewer systems, and they’re significantly more complex structures than typical pipes. Fortunately, GPRS Video Pipe Inspection Project Managers are fully equipped to gather detailed information about these structures, including changes in direction and pipe size, to fully document all defects, determine the manhole’s current condition, and provide the specific information needed to recommend corrective action.
Our 3D scanning service delivers unmatched site documentation with a variety of professional 3D laser scanners, including the Leica P-Series and RTC360 scanners. Each time we execute a 3D scan, we capture a point cloud. Our point clouds capture millions of data points from multiple on-site locations using LiDAR technology, giving you unrivaled image fidelity of up to 2-4 mm accuracy and up to 2 million 3D data points captured per second.
