  29. 29. How To If the hole is below the water line or to deep then only a camera inspection will show the hole. 1
  30. 30. How To 2: Camera Inspection 2
  31. 31. How To A camera is sent down into the bore and a video picture is sent back to a screen and recorder. 2
  32. 32. How To If the damage is below water line, then the camera will record and show you how much damage has taken place 2
  33. 33. How To The Camera will also log the bore and give you depths of where the damage has taken place. 2
  34. 34. How To We Now have the following Information 2
  35. 35. How To Depth of the Bore 2
  36. 36. How To Depth of the Screen 2

  43. 43. 3 1: It will tell us if the bore is bent
  44. 44. 3 2: It will tell us if the new reline casing will fit all the way to the bottom.
  45. 45. 3 4: It will swipe the build up of corrosion and may return it to it’s original inside diameter. Picture from
  46. 46. 3 As this will allow all the corrosion to fall to the bottom, the casing will have to be cleaned out.
  47. 47. 3 One way to clean the bore is by using compressed air.
  48. 48. How To Now that the bore has been inspected we will know the following
  49. 49. How To Depth of the bore
  50. 50. How To Maximum diameter of the casing that can be used in relining your bore
