It all started about 14 years ago in the Netherlands, when two highly experienced pipe cleaning operators were thinking how to better and faster remove massive root blockages. They had the great idea of equipping an existing tractor with an improvised 500 bar (7,250 psi) high-pressure jetting nozzle. Its performance was so impressive that the high-pressure water jet cutter had to be born!

In 2006, ID-TEC (now Sewer Robotics) was founded. We introduced the first modular sewer rehabilitation robot designed for various jobs in the sewer rehabilitation industry: a multi-functional crawler (robot) with interchangeable modules (tools) for CCTV camera inspection, water jet obstructions removal, mechanical cutting, liner preparation, lateral reinstatement and spot repairs.

Today, Sewer Robotics systems operate across the world to keep the storm-, water and wastewater pipelines from Amsterdam, Tokyo, London, Los Angeles, Melbourne and many other municipalities clear from solidified grease, tree roots, tuberculation, scaling, grout, cement, calcium, and overpoured concrete.
