By applying a small amount of vacuum to a line, just a pound of vacuum, (inverted pressure) will draw air from outside of the pipe into the line. The line is isolated, so the only access for air to be drawn into the pipe is at the leak. By creating a stream of bubbling air from outside of the pipe, as we draw back on the camera we can see the turbulence approaching the leak, and ultimately, the bubbles revealing both the location and the severity of the area needing repair.
Taking the process one step further, there are situations where the area surrounding a pipe has been thoroughly saturated and there is actually a strong amount of moisture and even water outside of the pipe itself. With the pipe evacuated, pulling into the empty line from outside of the pipe we can see the water, mud and debris being pulled into the empty pipe, again, revealing where the break is.
Camera with sonde technology, like our Hand Held Video Pro Camera with the sonde head attachment will deliver a 512hz frequency at the camera head. Once the camera is at the location of the leak, using a 512 receiver to identify it’s exact location will tell users right where repairs have to be made, reducing time spent digging and the growing cost to make repairs.
