The ROVVER X sewer inspection crawler is known for its smart, rugged design. Each of its components is thoughtfully constructed to guarantee what matters most to operators: lowering resistance to achieve better crawler performance and greater reliability. Nowhere is this more true than with ROVVER X’s cable.
Lateral launch doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, there’s no real reason why aiming and launching a camera from one pipe to another should require sharpshooter skill. The technology is out there–it’s just a question of putting it to work.
With the Jetscan HD video nozzle, your cleaning crew can capture footage of pipe condition and stream it wirelessly to any tablet device. Simply thread Jetscan onto your jetter hose to record footage that helps
- Document the effectiveness of sewer cleaning
- Find offsets, collapses, infiltration and other problems without a CCTV crew
- Identify cross bores, collapses, protruding taps, root balls and other operational risks
- Check for gravel, grease, roots or sludge, then pick the best nozzle for the job
Thank you to the many customers and partners who visited our booth during WEFTEC 2018 in New Orleans last week. We welcomed nearly 300 guests and enjoyed seeing many of our sales partners from across the country. A special thanks to Best Equipment, our sales partner in Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky, for loaning us their new demo truck for the show.
Hundreds of municipalities rely on the Quickview airHD to assess sewer condition rapidly and affordably.
Now, this trusted tool can measure the distance to objects observed inside sewer pipes. Users can choose between a free app update that provides quick estimates, or deploy a laser rangefinder accessory for more accurate readings. Knowing the distance to pipe features makes it easier to troubleshoot problems and plan repair work.
The new VC500 controller for the ROVVER X sewer inspection crawler allows for an efficient workflow. From crawler operation and video recording to observation entry and report generation, the VC500 helps ease your inspection process.
To help bring you up to speed on this new controller, Envirosight has created seven short training videos that cover everything from basic navigation to inspection, measurement and reporting. Take just twenty minutes to get a solid foundation for operating the VC500.

The new VC500 controller for the ROVVER X sewer inspection crawler is the industry’s first to allow an operator to make a standards-compliant inspection, then upload it wirelessly to the cloud for instant access anywhere, on any device with a browser. The new controller also includes a suite of tools to measure pipe diameter and bend, crack size, obstructions, flow level, lateral diameter and angle, and inclination. In addition, it brings drag-and-drop simplicity to the task of overlaying video with inspection data, system status and images.
Here’s a brief introduction to its core features:
More than 55% of motor failures occur because of overheating caused by excessive resistance (Bright Hub Engineering). The two biggest enemies of motors are heat and moisture. Crawlers are sealed against moisture, but their motors encounter resistance daily and in many forms. Increasingly, crawler manufacturers are focusing on designs that mitigate the damaging effects of resistance, with the goal of enhancing their equipment’s travel range, reliability and cost of ownership.
The ROVVER X crawler is known for it's versatility. In addition to recording digital video, generating reports, and adapting to a range of pipe sizes and materials, this powerful sewer inspection system can easily push a Quick-Lock point repair sleeve into position to solve water infiltration. Quick-Lock point repair sleeves repair damaged and leaky sewer pipes without grout, trenching or long cures. Designed for unsurpassed service life, Quick-Lock’s stainless steel construction restores structural strength, while its rubber gasket seals out infiltration.
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.
