CCTV Inspection

Hill Services Inc. provides closed circuit television inspection (CCTV) for pipeline inspection and drain inspection. CCTV inspection services allow operators to monitor pipes and pinpoint problems such as cracks, breaks, sags, and obstructions, without costly shutdown or dewatering. CCTV inspection services are good for monitoring pipe constructed with various materials, including metal, concrete, plastic, and fiberglass.


CCTV inspection for pipelines utilizes state-of-the art robotic crawlers and CCTV inspection cameras with real-time imaging for inspection of pipes. Pipeline video inspection allows operators to investigate unexplained flow conditions, inspect pipe walls and liners, locate lost line valves, examine valve conditions, assess internal corrosion of metallic pipes, and inspect leak areas to assist repair planning.

Hill Services Inc. high definition video equipment includes pan-and-tilt CCTV inspection cameras with rotation and illumination capabilities and all other necessary equipment for meeting certified standards and requirements for pipeline video inspection. See equipment


The CCTV inspection camera is able to navigate through bends and turns in the pipe, around minor objects, roots, and debris while moving through the pipe and capturing conditions. CCTV monitoring systems capture important information such as time, date, manhole/station numbers & operating personnel and allow for both still photos and recording. Detailed software generated reports are also available upon request. See equipment

Inspection Procedures

All Hill Services Inc. CCTV inspection services include: pipelines inspection / drains inspection, a technical assessment of conditions observed while monitoring pipe, preparation of a findings report, and DVD copies of the CCTV pipe inspection. The findings report discusses any problem areas observed, provides a detailed summary of the conditions, and recommends future actions that may be needed.

Closed circuit television inspections (CCTV) are used during pipeline cleaning services, especially in conjunction with robotic cutting and reaming methods, which utilize a CCTV system to complete work. During reaming and grinding procedures, a CCTV operator works in partnership with a combination truck operator to locate and remove obstructions. Reaming and cutting is monitored in real time by trained field technicians via CCTV inspection cameras. CCTV monitoring is also used in large diameter pipe cleaning operations.
