Customer Spotlight—City of Tallahassee, FL

Posted by Venay Sehgal Bhatia on Oct 26, 2016 12:28:38 PM

With over 1000 miles of sewer pipe and 400 miles of storm pipe, the City of Tallahassee’s Underground Utilities and Public Infrastructure Department has been an industry front-runner in establishing a proactive sewer inspection and rehabilitation strategy. “Our Department’s motto is Setting the Standard for Excellence—this motto is engrained in all our work and challenges us to be leaders at what we do,” says Todd Hacker, the Department’s Superintendent. In 2010, the Department bought their first ROVVER system; today they have a total of seven ROVVER and ROVVER X systems. “We like to consider ourselves early adopters—especially when it comes to technology that can make the work we do more efficient and effective,” says Tony Moore, the Department’s Maintenance Construction Chief. “We need first-class technology to help us stay on top of our underground utilities, and our ROVVER X inspection cameras help us do just that.”

ROVVER X Sewer Crawler Cable Retermination Training

Posted by Venay Sehgal Bhatia on Sep 2, 2016 4:40:10 PM

A crawler exerts a lot of force pulling its cable through sewers, and the section right behind the connector takes the brunt of that strain. Over time, the constant twisting and bending will cause the conductors inside the cable to fray and separate. When this happens, the crawler can become non-responsive, or experience intermittent power or video.

Cable retermination is a fact of life with any crawler. But because the ROVVER X uses advanced digital communications, it has only six conductors to worry about. This makes retermination simple enough for an operator to perform on site—instead of shipping the system out for repair and enduring down time.

To learn how to reterminate your own crawler cable, get FREE training at your regional Envirosight service center.

Customer Spotlight: The City of Concord, California

Posted by Venay Sehgal Bhatia on Aug 19, 2016 6:16:11 PM

A little over two years ago, the staff at City of Concord faced a predicament: should they continue to use a system that was increasingly unreliable, couldn’t fit in 60% of their pipes, and was becoming more and more expensive to repair—or should they cut their losses and invest in another system? “Our inspection needs kept growing and our old system could never keep up,” says Jim Stearns, Camera Operator at the City of Concord. “When Pete Carlson of Haaker Equipment started demoing the ROVVER X, it was as if it was made for our sewer system.”

Pressurizing ROVVER X Sewer Inspection Crawler Components

Posted by Venay Sehgal Bhatia on Jul 11, 2016 12:54:56 PM

Maintaining proper system pressure is essential to protecting your ROVVER X crawler. This mechanism allows operators to know whether a certain component is losing air, indicating a leak path by which water can enter system. When you re-pressurize system components, it should last for several days or weeks. If a component is losing pressure more regularly, a service visit is in order.
