Applied environmental protection underground Modern civilization cannot do without a working wastewater system. It is important that contaminated water makes its way safely to the sewage treatment plant. As many drainage systems and household pipe connections are now decades old, they often need to be repaired or replaced. Expensive repairs can be precisely planned and restricted to the affected areas by first conducting an underground video inspection. Microdrives facilitate complete mobility of the camera head of such inspection devices, ensuring optimal coverage of all sections of the drain and delivering a panoramic view to the camera operator. Compact dimensions are important for all components of the inspection system to ensure even narrow drains and thin pipes are properly checked.
