Video Inspection Services

DRMP’s well trained and experienced group of technicians with state-of-the-art video inspection equipment ensures a prompt and efficient response to any project. DRMP is professionally trained and equipped to handle a wide range of projects.

Project Uses:
Video Inspection (V.I.) is a method of viewing pipes, ducts, and hard to reach spaces to inspect and record their integrity. Some inspection points that can be viewed are corrosion/ deterioration of pipe walls, clogs and blockages i.e. sediment or root balls, damages due to collapse. V.I. can be used to view the following:

  • Storm structures and pipes
  • Sanitary structures and pipes
  • Telecommunication and FOC ducts
  • Roof drains
  • Archaeological studies
  • Empty gas and water lines
  • Chimneys and Ventilation Ducts
  • Landscape pipes
  • Confined spaces

How the Equipment Works:
The video inspection process begins when an access point is found and the size of pipe is determined. This information is necessary so that the appropriately sized camera and skid will be mounted for the project. The size of the skid is important to keep the camera up off the bottom of the pipe and centered so a good even picture is recorded. The camera head is equipped with a sonde (device for testing physical conditions) that is turned on, and still pictures as well as audio can be recorded on a video inspection run. Headers with pertinent job information can be recorded at the beginning of each run in order to help organize a large job that has multiple runs. An electromagnetic locator is used above ground to locate and mark its position when an anomaly, lateral or hidden structure is found. The rod reel is equipped with a footage counter that can be reset every time the camera is set in the invert for the beginning of a run. The counter helps mark anomalies on the video and above ground so that unnecessary excavation is not performed. There are many different sizes and types of cameras and systems from 2 inche heads to as small as under an inch. Some systems are able to pan, tilt and zoom and are mounted on a small simple skid to a motorized tractor.

Finished Product:
The finished product can be either an AVI video file or a JPEG, along with still shots and a written report of what was inspected and viewed during the inspection. Noted issues can be marked above ground and surveyed for mapping purposes if needed.

Permit Inspection Services

As a condition of driveway or connection permit approval, many government agencies, such as the Florida Department of Transportation, require that a contractor provide a qualified CEI Inspector onsite during all operations within the right of way. The CEI’s role during permit projects is to ensure that construction operations and materials provided are in accordance with that agencies standards and specification. In addition to CEI field inspection, many times there is also the need for minor involvement of a Project Administrator (PA). The PA’s role primarily involves submittal reviews and coordination with the permitting agency.DRMP Permit Inspection Clients:
