CCTV Pipeline Inspections

Taupo District Council: Mangakino

In May 2015 we undertook a project to clean and inspect over 11kms of storm water pipes in Mangakino, a small town in the north of the Taupo district. This was a great opportunity for us to break in our brand new iPek Rovion RX130 CCTV camera system, and to test our new custom built Hydro-jetting truck.

Mangakino was built in the late 1940’s to house the hundreds of workers for the construction of the nearby Maraetai Dam. It was only ever meant to be a temporary town while the dam, and other proposed dams close by, were being built.

Asset Locating & As-Built Plans

Using sonar and radio detection equipment we can track and locate the position & depth of our cameras.

This helps to provide accurate data for:

• Position, depth, & direction of lines

• Accurate plotting of as-built drainage plans

• Above ground location for the marking of pipe features & defects
(e.g. cracking, blockages, breaks, root intrusions, pipe displacements, junctions)

• Location of hidden outlets

Council Build-Over Reports

If you are intending on building over or near a council/public drain the council requires that you inspect and assess the condition of the drain both before and after your construction process. This is to determine if your work has damaged the council asset during your construction process.

As per requirement, you will receive:

- Video footage from manhole to manhole, uploaded to Dropbox, unless otherwise requested.

- Assessment logs including manhole references, pipe depths measured at boundary crossings, and any features/defects present in the line.

Inspections & Diagnostics

With the use of the Ridgid SeeSnake, and the iPek Rovion RX130 CCTV camera systems, we can provide you with a quality service. All of our inspections come with condition assessment reports generated through industry software, and video footage provided through Dropbox or USB flash drives on request.

Our Capabilities:

• Inspection & Diagnostics of Water, Waste Water (Sanitary Sewer), Storm Water, or Plant Production pipes

• Surveying pipes ranging in size from 50mm – 2000mm

• Council Build-over Reports

• As-Built Plans
