What are drone inspections? With technology moving forward every year, more and more traditional industry practices are becoming unnecessary. Sometimes, even obsolete due to avoidable safety risks and duration times. This is because new, safer and more convenient methods are becoming accessible. One such method is the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or ‘Drones,’ for commercial onsite inspections. This replaces previous unsafe methods of inspecting assets at great heights or hard to access locations.

Recognising this industry innovation, Stormwater Sydney has purchased and registered a commercial drone to conduct onsite asset inspections. These assets include tanks, rooftops, gutters, eaves-box systems, downpipes and any other assets that would previously require height work. this reduces exposure to potential risks, not to mention saving the time it takes to get up and inspect these devices manually.

Crystal Clear Images

With our drone, we are able to capture crystal clear images and footage in 4K. The high-quality zoom functionality enable us to see more than we ever could before. this is all without wasting time or putting our specialists at risk of any physical harm. We also provide our clients with a higher degree of evidence and observation in our inspection reports.  We are able to provide all the media taken from the drone and send it directly to the client electronically.
