Tractor Camera Inspections Give Accurate Data About Your Pipes
The tractor camera is a robotic camera used to inspect and map main sewer lines. Mid America Drain uses a tractor camera to perform a thorough drain inspection to pinpoint problem areas within your sewer pipes.
Combine the Camera Inspection with our Transmitter service and we are able to determine what the problem area below ground is, take video of it and then locate and mark your dig site above ground.
This service increases the precision of your dig site when needing to fix a cracked or broken pipe, saving you both time and money.
Once the damaged or broken section of pipe has been located, use our Hydro Excavation service to quickly and safely expose the pipe for repairs or replacement.
Line Mapping and Locating is another great application for the Tractor Camera, with live video feed and recording, we are able to deliver a video of everything we see.

How Tractor Camera Inspections Work
A CCTV camera is attached to a small robotic vehicle called a tractor. This assembly is placed in the sewer line at an access pipe or manhole.
Using remote control, the operator drives the camera tractor through the sewer line. The camera sends video to a monitor so the operator can detect any break or blockages in the pipe.
A special transmitter also sends signals which give the precise location of the camera within the sewer line. This allows for pinpoint accuracy when it comes time to dig.
The tractor camera inspection allows for drain inspections that could not be done any other way.
Include Tractor Camera Inspections In Your Sewer Maintenance Program
A regular tractor camera inspection of your sewer lines allows you to monitor the condition of your lines over time. Areas needing repair can be spotted and fixed before they become major costly problems. See our Commercial Drain Maintenance page for more information.
