Pipeline internal camera inspection: Sewer – A

  • Date: 12 October 2020
  • Address: 4 Adrienne Road Ballit
  • Pipe use: Sewer
  • Diameter: 110 mm
  • Inspected length: 2.3m
  • Pipe composition: PVC

Joint Seperation

Pipe wall deformation due to the collar rubber protruding from the joint. Severe ingress of vegetation. The pipe volume is severely compromised. Undoubtedly this joint will leak.
The camera could not proceed beyond 2.3m due to the above-stated restricted pipe volume.

Degraded and misaligned/separated joints can cause the following:

  • Ingress of surrounding bedding material leading to void formation and sinkhole formation.
  • Saturation of surrounding soil.
  • Further misalignments at the joints.
  • Trough formation leading to a compromised flow.

Pipeline internal camera inspection: Sewer – B

  • Date: 12 October 2020
  • Address: 4 Adrienne Road Ballito
    Pipe use: Sewer
  • Diameter: 110 mm
  • Inspected length: 8.0m
  • Pipe composition: PVC


Significant joint separation.

Pipe wall buckled inwards.

The camera could not proceed beyond 8.0m due to the number of bends in this section of pipeline causing excessive friction on the camera cable.
Degraded and misaligned/separated joints can cause the following:

  • Ingress of surrounding bedding material leading to void formation and sinkhole formation.
  • Saturation of surrounding soil.
  • Further misalignments at the joints.
  • Trough formation leading to a compromised flow.

Pipeline internal camera inspection: Sewer – C

  • Date: 12 October 2020
  • Address: 4 Adrienne Road Ballito
  • Pipe use: Sewer
  • Diameter: 110 mm
  • Inspected length: 22.3m
  • Pipe composition: PVC

Significant Joint Seperation

Minor pipe wall indentation.

Entry to sewer manhole not visible from the surface. Not the vegetation ingress on the brickwork. This manhole is not properly sealed and will leak.

The channeling for the aforementioned benching appears to be a split length of pipe that has merely been forced into the downstream pipe. The channeling of this manhole benching is not to standard.

Severe joint separation.

The pipe end is badly damaged where indicated. Possibly a piece of the collar rubber is protruding.

Joint Seperation

Severe joint separation.

The indicated area is possibly the collar rubber which is located at the very end of the said collar.

Close up of the aforementioned

Severe joint separation.

Pipe wall indentations close to the invert.

Sediment and vegetation ingress.

Severe joint separation.

Sediment and vegetation ingress. Collar rubber visible where indicated.

Sewer manhole, not visible from the surface.

An entry point to another manhole. Possibly a municipal pipeline beyond the property boundary.
Degraded and misaligned/separated joints can cause the following:

  • Ingress of surrounding bedding material leading to void formation and sinkhole formation.
  • Saturation of surrounding soil.
  • Further misalignments at the joints.
  • Trough formation leading to a compromised flow.
  • Additionally, pipe wall indentations may be cracked, leading to consequences similar to the above stated.
