A NON-BIASED APPROACH TO SOLVING CUSTOMERS’ PROBLEMS
Depending on the requirements of our clients, we can provide either a planned or reactive CCTV inspection strategy that best suits their needs. Reactive strategies are based around above-ground defect evidence, such as evidence of leaking or unexpected flooding. A planned CCTV inspection strategy is delivered after surveying a large pipe network in an area and delivers a targeted program that focuses on specific areas in order to most productively spend the allocated budget.
Drawing on our extensive experience in CCTV inspection and pipeline maintenance management, we’ll define and deliver the best, non-biased solution for fixing your pipeline assets. If the best solution to the problem you are facing is not one of our core services, we’ll use our industry experience, relationships and strong reputation to identify and engage the best professional to get the job done to our own high standards.
At PMA, we determine the solution that is effective and most beneficial for our clients – not the solution that is easiest and will most benefit our company. If a problem in your pipeline can be identified, isolated, and repaired – as opposed to scenarios of replacing the entire pipe at a much higher cost to you – then that’s the solution that we will always recommend. We are all about building long-term relationships, not gaining short-term wins for ourselves. Our commitment to our clients is that we will always give a non-biased solution, regardless of the problem we are tasked with solving.

Testament to PMA’s position as an industry leader, we have the technical expertise and high-tech equipment to inspect and maintain every single size range of pipes in service, from standard 150mm to 300mm pipes through to 1.5-metre diameter pipes and the largest pipes in service.
Our fleet also includes a range of cameras to suit every CCTV inspection job, from push cameras to small tracking cameras as well as large tracking cameras that drive through large pipelines, to long-range flotation systems that can float 3.5km through a single pipeline. We are one of the few pipeline maintenance companies in Australia that can offer this long-range flotation capability.
Here is a sample of the solutions you’ll find in Pipe Management Australia’s condition assessment arsenal:
CCTV Tractor Units
Pipe Management Australia utilises Proteus CCTV Tractor units to inspect stormwater and sewer lines to deliver build over surveys, asset condition assessments for councils and water utilities across Australia.
Our CCTV Tractor units are fitted with SOND technology to assist with locating stormwater and sewer lines for councils or prior to construction projects.
Rapid Inspection Camera
Pipe Management Australia uses the latest Quickview camera technology to conduct rapid inspections. An ultra-zoom camera provides high-definition footage to deliver a quick condition report, saving time and money on site This is perfect for quickly deciding if a pipe needs cleaning and ideal for straight pipes.
We have introduced the very latest in inspection technology with the Quickview Rapid Inspection Camera. Capable of zooming from the manhole/entry point up to 120 meters down a pipe. Amazing optics and sophisticated Halo light technology enable a crystal-clear capture of the overall condition of any pipe or culvert.
The Quickview Rapid Inspection Camera is perfect for checking if pipes need cleaning quickly and cost-effectively without having to use conventional inspection methods which take far longer and therefore cost more. It takes minutes to setup and inspect from a manhole/entry point.
Another useful function is the smaller manhole camera on the back of the Quickview head which enables the recording of a manhole survey. The possibilities are endless with this technology and we are happy to be able deliver this service for our Clients.
The RACERTM (Rapid Assessment Condition Evaluation Rover) is the result of an innovative collaboration between Australian sewer inspection and stormwater industry leader PMA and Sydney Water. Utilizing high definition camera and sonar technology, The RACERTM is built for inspecting inside active sewer lines and detecting how much debris or pipe damage might exist below the waterline.
Heralding a new age in asset management, The RACERTM helps councils and utilities management professionals to more efficiently and safely conduct their work and deliver results.
Using CleverScan technology, Pipe Management Australia can conduct manhole condition assessments delivering productivity and detail. From capturing high-definition 3D images and video, to acquiring the geometry of a manhole, this service allows local councils and water utilities to easily inspect sewer or stormwater network manholes.
Spatial Data Capture and Management
As an added benefit to our CCTV inspection services, PMA can provide video and reports digitally. These condition reports are combined with Spatial Services for clients on the assets they maintain. These services include mapping assets and providing real time updates through a secure login as they are updated by our teams in the field.
PMA Delivers Inspection & Spatial
Mapping of assets
Upper Lachlan Shire Council in NSW required assistance in mapping their stormwater network. PMA used Trimble devices to provide GPS coordinates for each of their manholes and CCTV to inspect the lines between each manhole. The mapped data was provided to council digitally via ArcGIS. This provided Upper Lachlan with a complete up-to-date assessment of their entire network and enabled the prioritization of future works.
