CCTV, or closed circuit television, is used in construction for video pipe inspection. I's one of the most effective methods to determine defects and how to correct them. It works by using remote controlled cameras to capture high-quality videos and pictures of internal pipe conditions.

What is the process like?

A camera is lowered into the pipes opening an...

The simple task of video pipe inspection takes around an hour to complete. New home buyers should consider video pipe inspections before purchasing a home. Many are knowledgeable about the home inspection process and making sure everything inside is up to par but don't realize things could be going wrong underground.

What is a sewer inspection?

The purpose...

Here at Cloud 9 Services, our preferred method of pipe inspection is with video pipe inspection. We recently asked one of our underground utility experts to answer the most asked question about video pipe inspection.  

Q: What are some of the benefits of video pipe inspection?

A: Video Pipe Inspection is very important because you will be able to see o...

Pumping stations are used to transport water from one site to another without human assistance, unlike lift stations. No contact with wastewater is necessary with this implementation. They can be useful in many ways such as supplying water to canals, circulating water through treatment systems, and draining water from low lying land. They are also helpful...

Lift stations are built to last up to 20 years when proper maintenance and cleaning is kept up. There are some instances where a station can malfunction or stop working entirely. There could be wiring problems or power supply interruptions that can cause flooding, odor or more.

Issues with the motor can cause backup and not allow the pumps to move wastewat...

Lift stations are facilities designed to move water from lower to higher elevations through pipelines. They are used for pumping wastewater and sewage where elevation is not sufficient for gravity flow.

A lift station has key elements to make it function: wet-well, pump and piping valves, junction box, and a control panel with an alarm system. The purpose...

Slot trenching is the excavation if narrow trenches. This construction method is used to install pipes, cables, or conduits underground. The holes are sometimes made with pressurized water and other times by manual digging. Depending on what job is being done will determine the method that best suits the project.

At times, people dig without thinking of possible consequences. Digging is a complex and potentially dangerous process. Without prior knowledge or experience, they could hit a utility line in the ground. There are certain things to keep in mind in order to avoid damaging utility lines when digging. 

Digging without knowing the location of underground utili...

What is the difference between excavation and trenching?

Excavating and trenching describe man-made holes created in the ground.  

According to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, better known as OSHA, it is the shape and depth of the hole that determines whether the opening is a trench or excavation. 

Any projects that require major...

Daylighting is also known as potholing. Daylighting a pipe is a term used to describe the process by which our contractors safely and securely expose underground utility lines and pipes. This gives them an in-depth look at the subsurface infrastructure.

Here’s how it works: By using hydro excavation our team is able to quickly and safely remove the debris...
