Lanes Group employee conducting an inspection of a drain using CCTV technologyDiagnosing drains, sewers and pipes.

Identifying blockages is relatively straightforward, but ascertaining overall structural integrity is more complex. With the aid of CCTV technology, either job is effortless, producing crystal clear data for absolute clarity about the state of your drain.

Drain inspections need not cost you.

Depending on the utility company you are signed up with, drainage inspections may well be covered under the terms of their operating licence, so we would recommend investigating this before booking a session.

Unrivalled clarity in inspection reporting.

We go beyond written reports after each inspection, analysing the high quality visual data we collect with the aid of CCTV and 360 ̊ camera technology and providing you with cost effective solutions to every problem that we identify.

From 360 degree Panoramo.

The Panoramo 3D Optoscanner surveys 360 degrees of a pipe, so it sees and records every millimetre of a drain or sewer at one pass.  Travelling at up to 35cm per second, Panoramo takes thousands of photos which the software then joints together to give a 3D view of the pipe.  The viewer is not limited to seeing what the CCTV operator chose to record, but can navigate the drain or sewer at his or her own speed, via the recorded footage, as if it were real-time.  Using Panoramo like a virtual camera, you can pan, rotate, stop, turn full circle, zoom, capture images, measure distance – even produce an unfolded view of the pipe’s inner surface. 360 degree Panoramo and LISY lateral surveying camera units offer clients an unrivalled choice of survey formats.

To LISY for laterals.

Designed especially for surveys of lateral drains, sewers and pipes, the LISY sat cam is quick and cost effective because it works from the mainline sewer or drain, without the need to access each property.  LISY will travel a mainline sewer for up to 100-metres until it comes to a blind lateral; then deploys the satellite camera (sat cam) to survey 33-metres up the branch connection.  LISY is in great demand as water companies’ remit now includes private sewers that used to be the responsibility of the home or property owner. Like Panoramo, LISY offers a range of survey formats.

ISO14001 adherence reviews.

For commercial customers, we go above and beyond, offering a full consultancy service for organisations aiming to both meet Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Guidance and achieve or maintain 14001 status.
