There are approximately 20 million manholes across the US providing access to the sewer systems that lie below. Up to 90% of inflow and infiltration (I&I) can be attributed to these manholes, increasing your maintenance and operations cost significantly as additional flow is added to your system. Stop I&I in it’s tracks with regular vertical inspections.
Let us help you gather the best and clearest data to protect your vertical assets.
Why manhole inspection?
Manhole inspection protects your collection system from harmful I&I and sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) by giving you a complete picture of your access points and their true condition.
Smart data gathered with Vertue™ lets you see every inch of your manhole, from rim to invert, with crystal clear imagery. 360 degree video and interactive modeling, along with 3D point clouds allow you to see and measure defects with the click of a button.
Safety comes first in everything we do. Our autonomous tools mean no manned entry, keeping crews safer in the field. Choose the team of vertical inspection experts and let us help you defend your community and the environment.
Battery powered for a full day of inspections. Portable and light – no need for heavy equipment/transport. Minimal sound on deployment, reducing noise pollution. Vertue is beneficial for your system and the environment.
Our vertical inspection tools can be deployed in 5 minutes or less for standard 100 foot inspections, reducing the total amount of time spent in the field.
What does manhole inspection provide?
Protect your system from inflow and infiltration with clear imagery and modeling, as well as NASSCO certified scoring. See the condition of your manholes with complete clarity.
Identify sources of inflow and infiltration
Pipe repair can be costly. Per dollar spent, manhole rehab can yield 3-4 times more I&I reduction than pipe rehab, reducing your maintenance expenses significantly.
Get NASSCO scoring for every asset
Get to know your assets’ condition with NASSCO certified defect scoring and MACP reporting. Better understand the state of your system and the access points within it.

How do I get started?
A single, half-inch hole can admit as much as 5 million gallons of additional water into your system in one year, threatening the durability of your system. Fight failure before it happens. Speak with our trusted experts and learn more about how manhole inspection can help you inspect to protect.
Get started in just 3 easy steps.
- Why inspect?
Determine the purpose of your inspection project. Are you trying to identify sources of inflow and infiltration, looking for NASSCO certified defect scoring for your assets, or do you just need a system of record for every manhole in your system? Let us help you choose the best plan of action for your next project.
- Gather your asset info.
Do you have existing system information? Maps or previous inspections? How many manholes or other access points are in your system and do they all require inspection? When it comes to manholes – we see clearly.
