    For inspecting flexible pipes

    "Flexible" pipes, Brick/GRP/HDPe etc cannot be assessed easily using conventional CCTV inspection methods as the level of deformation cannot be measured. Indeed, deformation cannot sometimes even be seen. 

    As CCTV is the equivalent of a 3D view of the pipe (horizontal, vertical and depth of field) there is no yardstick to denote deformation, never mind measuring it. 

    This is especially important in "plastic" pipes where the only indication of deformation would be at the Joints. Considering that the UK fail percentage is 6% the CCTV inspection of such pipes is a waste of time. 

    LightLine is the perfect method of inspection in that LightLine generates a line of light around the pipe so that the Team Leader "sees" a 2 dimensional view of the pipe. The human eye is very good at determining what is a circle, and, more importantly, what is not. 

    The LightLine is supported by specifically written software that enables very accurate measuring of the line of light. The LightLine software can also generate a perfect circle of any size, or a percentage of the size being inspected (guide circle), so that when the line of light "touches" the guide circle the Team Leader measures the deformation. This is known as the "Fail Circle System". The Fail Circle would be 6 percent smaller than the actual pipe size being inspected.

"I have ten blokes working for me, giving them a camera to use is like giving them an extra qualification. Not only do my clients trust them more but they’re willing to pay more for the service. I’ll be getting me another one in the next few months for sure."

Paul Smithers, Atlantic Plumbing, Artarmon NSW

“I’m a plumber with a camera business and I bought the ELS because I had to. My clients kept on asking for it and I was getting tired of losing jobs and paying other blokes my hard earned dollars because I didn’t have one. I tell you what though, I’m glad I bought it when I did… It’s been unreal for business. The quality is exceptional and the amount of follow-on work I get from it is unbelievable. And what’s more I’m not losing jobs or clients to other plumbers anymore.”

Gared O’Neill, Australian Water Blasting, Sans Souci NSW

Working with Austeck has been fantastic. One of the smartest business moves I’ve made…almost every camera job has lead to follow on work, like sewer re-lays!

Edo Rutstein, Ben Plumbers, Bondi NSW

“I’ve been very happy with the reliability and service from Austeck – I have found the T804 to be user friendly. Because the T804 is really compact it’s made those hard to get to areas a breeze compared to the other equipment I’ve used in the past. It’s made life a lot easier”

Tony Maude, Cavalier Plumbing, Sydney NSW

“Where I work I need reliability and durability with quality reporting. I needed a system that is tough, durable and could deliver clear and accurate reports! The T804 has enabled me to deliver all of this and more. Both the client and I have certainty of job closure. I have no hesitation in recommending the T804 to any plumber who’s looking to grow their business.”

David Lord, David Lord Plumbing, Cloncurry Central QLD

“The downtime on services is next to nothing…I’m usually in and out and back on the road within the hour”

Warren Radford, Downunder Pipeline Surveys, Sydney NSW

“I’ve had the T804 for the last 2 years and use it almost every day, it’s what my business and the market is demanding – reliability, quality of reporting and service. It’s been fantastic.”

Redmond Marshall, Jender Services, Darwin NT

“I got my first ELS camera unit from Austeck two and a half years ago, and once the lease is up in March I’ll be fitting out another truck with another ELS camera unit for sure!”

Jeremy Macpherson, Jeremy Macpherson Plumbing, Caringbah NSW

“I started leasing the flexiprobe ELS system thorough Austeck two weeks ago. Since then I have done over 8 jobs with the camera and through word of mouth have drummed up over 4 jobs for next week alone…”

Jeremy Macpherson, Jeremy Macpherson Plumbing, Caringbah NSW

“Since I bought my ELS camera my work load has increased so much I’ve had to put on another guy just to keep up… The way things are going, I will be buying another ELS camera very soon.”

Joe Bainey, Joe Bainey Plumbing, Granville NSW

“The ELS has been great for business; it’s definitely more reliable than any other system I’ve tried – A real winner in my book!”

Mike Kelly, Metropolitan Drain Cleaning, Melbourne VIC

“Three years ago I bought my first Pearpoint flexiprobe system and since then have bought three more. I picked up my fourth system only two weeks ago and if business keeps on at this rate I’ll get another one before too long. The performance and reliability of these cameras is excellent and I wouldn’t recommend anything else.”

Barry Maloney, Online Pipe and Cable Locating, Blacktown NSW

“I’ve been in the camera game for as long as it’s been around and for my money nothing compares to the ELS. I picked up one a couple of months ago and haven’t looked back since. The difference between it and other cameras I’ve seen is… well, it’s like chalk and cheese. Nothing else out there is as compact or easy to use. It’s a great little unit.”

Les Smith, Pipe-Eye, Gavan QLD

“I’d already invested in a competitor product so the decision to upgrade to the T804 didn’t come easily. But, I’m sure glad I did! The functionality and sheer reliability of the product has been fantastic. I know what I’ll be investing in in the future.”

Rob Smith, Rob Smith Plumbing, Adelaide SA

“I’ve only had my ELS camera for a few months and, although I was hesitant at first, I wish I’d started years ago… The camera jobs already account for over one third of my business!”

Ryan McClelland, RP McClelland Plumbing, Northmead NSW

“I haven’t had it long but so far it’s a little ripper! It’s performed beyond all expectations, worth every penny…I’m absolutely wrapped!”

John O’Neill, Tunnel Vision, Perth WA

This camera is head and shoulders above the rest. Worth every cent!

Jarrod Wilson, Underground Engineering Solutions, Melbourne VIC

“I first started using the ELS about 8 months ago and since then, with all the Sydney Water contracts out at the moment, have done over 5000 house service lines, about 30 a day, no joke! And that’s through the trap and all! The ELS is by far the toughest, most durable, reliable, easy to use piece of camera gear I’ve ever used. I honestly can’t say enough about it.”

David Francois, Viewpoint Technologies, Sydney NSW
