  • CCTV

      Contracting & Council CCTV

    SJ Allen's CCTV service films municipality sewer pipes and storm water drains with closed-circuit television cameras (CCTV). These show clearly root masses, flaws in joints, shingle build-up and pest animals.

    Our CCTV units use the latest technology of pan and tilt self-propelled tractor cameras. Plus they have state-of-the-art win cam systems for data recording and reporting, which means we can fire electronic and hard copy imaging to you at the touch of a button.

    Once CCTV has identified the problem, SJ Allen's enormously powerful water blasters will deal to it. Nothing cleans like H20 at 3,000 plus psi. Water at this pressure can cut through timber like a saw, obliterate tree roots, remove thick accumulations of paint and take barnacles off the hulls of ships.

    Used in conjunction with water blasting, CCTV from SJ Allen is an effective and efficient maintenance tool for underground services.

    When developing a subdivision, Councils require SJ Allen’s film inspection of new assets prior to amalgamating council service infrastructure. Councils also use CCTV as an asset management tool giving them a better picture of the condition of underground services such as stormwater & sewer as well as line bore inspection without costly excavations.

    • All inspections are carried out by qualified staff to meet NZ Pipe Manual 3rd Edition
