Inspecting Your Home's Drainage System With CCTV Cameras

When it comes to drainage it can be an anxious time finding out there is a problem, how it happened and then to-work out what to do about it is the hardest part. This is where our team of professional drainage engineers come in, who will carry out a drain survey on a residence to ascertain what is the cause of the problem if there is one and how big it is. A simple blockage will mean using our high-pressured jet wash to push through and clear any blockage then use our HD CCTV cameras to see if there is any further work needing to be done or any damage to be repaired.

Drain surveys provide a non-invasive way to check the general health and functionality of drains. Giving us full visual access to underground systems to fully check their condition is invaluable to both new homebuyers and existing householders thinking of extending their property. So, whether you are buying or selling a property it makes good sense to check on the state of the drains before doing so. Our comprehensive domestic and residential CCTV drain surveys provides the solution that our clients are looking for and at great price.

Our full colour reports will show the general condition of the drains and the location of junctions and connections, it will also include recommendations and costing for any required works, which if you are buying a new home can be invaluable when negotiating the cost of the purchase.

What Will A CCTV Survey Reveal?

When it comes to drains underground there can be many problems that can occur which cannot be seen from above and therefore a CCTV camera comes into play to find out what is going wrong down below. The problem can be as simple as just a blockage, but more serious problems could be the reason e.g. drainpipe is cracked or has collapsed. This is when a simple, quick and no-invasive camera survey is ideal to find out what the problem is and help evaluate what is the best course of action to come to a solution.

To be more precise a CCTV camera survey can help identify the following:

  • Leaks and Corrosion
  • Blocked Drains
  • Joints That Have Displaced
  • Tree Roots Blocking Pipes
  • General Wear and Tear
  • Build Up of Scale
  • Cracked and Drains That Have Collapsed

Why Do You Need A CCTV Survey?

There can be many reasons to carry out a camera survey on a drainage system, below are a few:

  • CCTV Inspection - A survey with CCTV cameras is a great way to see if there is a problem with the drains and work how to go about fixing the problem without expensive and time-consuming excavation work.
  • Buying a Property Survey - Buying a property is generally the most expensive purchase someone makes in their lifetime and having the drains investigated to see they are in working order is essential before buying a new property, but many people may not think of getting this done before it is too late.
  • Seller - The seller can be proactive and get a survey done on the drains to make sure everything is OK, so that the sale can go through quicker and smoother.
