Lateral Launch Sewer Inspections

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.

Manhole Inspections

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.

What Deliverables Does GPRS Offer When Conducting A VPI?

GPRS is proud to offer WinCan reporting to our Video Pipe Inspection clients. Maintaining sewers starts with understanding sewer condition, and WinCan allows GPRS Project Managers to collect detailed, NASSCO-compliant inspection data. GPRS Project Managers not only inspect the interior condition of sewer pipes, laterals, and manholes – they can also provide a map of their location. The GPRS Mapping & Modeling Department can provide detailed GPS overlays and CAD files. Our detailed WinCan/NASSCO reports contain screenshots of the interior condition of the pipe segments that we inspect, as well as a video file for further evaluation, documentation, and/or reference.

Can You Locate Pipes in Addition to Evaluating Their Integrity?

Yes! Our SIM- and NASSCO-certified Project Managers use VPI technology equipped with sondes, which are instrument probes that allow them to ascertain the location of underground utilities from an inaccessible location. This allows them to use electromagnetic (EM) locating to map sewer systems at the same time they’re evaluating them for defects.
