Most borehole camera have side and downhole views, which offer 360 degree continuous rotation, as well as a series of sensors, such as depth, inclinometer, compass or temerature. Among the data that can be ascertained using a borehole inspection camera about groundwater, a few are stated below:
- The location of standing water can be ascertained if there is no electrical water level available. The location of the standing water should be within a foot in order to be determined by a borehole camera.
- Using a borehole inspection camera, the quality of the water like its color, clarity and consistency can be predicted.
- In addition to observing the color, clarity and consistency it is possible to find the amount of precipitates in the groundwater using a borehole camera.
- With a borehole camera, it is possible to detect the ground water inflow points and vertical flow direction of water in wells. Indicative zones of inflow of water can also be ascertained by the changes in water color and clarity.
- The location of the influx zone can be determined by a borehole camera by checking the amount of water bubbles.
