CCTV Drain Inspection
CCTV DRAIN INSPECTION
CCTV drain inspection is a non-obtrusive way of inspecting large areas of drains or pipework allowing us to locate blockages and clear them quickly and effectively.
Our CCTV drain inspection cameras are able to inspect long distances of subterrain pipe work to assess or find and identify faults or blockages in drainage systems. As our cameras travel through the pipework images are recorded so we can assess and deal with issues present.
We offer competitively priced CCTV drain surveys 24/7. We get to the bottom of your drain problem and get it resolved fast.
Why and when would I need a CCTV drain inspection survey?
CCTV drain inspection surveys are an indispensable tool in a number of situations. For example, a pre-purchase drain survey can be arranged before you purchase a new home. The survey will generate a precise review of the current condition of the property’s drainage system, and will provide an overview of any necessary repairs in the future. The survey provides buyers the opportunity to make a fully-informed decision before they sign any contracts.
Homeowners or tenants may also need a CCTV survey when they face one-off or ongoing drainage issues. A survey can find the root cause of a problem, so they’re essential if you’re experiencing drain troubles but have no idea why.
WHAT EQUIPMENT IS USED?
When you arrange for a CCTV drain survey, a technician will come to your property with a range of tools and equipment ready to use during the survey.
Here are some details about some of the equipment used:
- Waterproof cameras: These state-of-the-art cameras must operate under flowing water and in tight spaces. They provide engineers with a clear view into your drains, including areas that would otherwise be impossible to see.
- Access rods: These are highly flexible, and are used to push the cameras along your drainage system, helping them to navigate tight turns and corners.
- Crawlers: Remote-operated crawlers are used to provide quick visual access to sewer systems, providing excellent mobility even in obstructed pipes.
- Sonar units: Sonar surveys are reserved for filled pipes, providing acoustic profiling to gain insight into the condition of the pipe where visual access is impeded.
What will a survey find?
Now you know what a survey is, what’s involved and what the process is, it’s time to answer the final question: what does it cover? The short answer is, just about any drainage issue you could possibly have.
Drain surveys are designed to deliver an extensive, thorough review of your drainage system. They can help to identify major and minor issues alike. From structural damage to fatbergs, whatever the problem with your drains a CCTV survey should be able to identify and locate it. A CCTV drain survey can help to identify:
- Collapsed drains
- Tree root ingress
- Causes and extent of leaks/bursts in pipes
- Corrosion and wear and tear
- Animal intrusion
- Evidence of displacement or poor installation
A drain survey has many advantages, but perhaps the most important is that it allows you to respond to existing issues and plan ahead to prevent future ones. In the long term, this helps to save you money – and frustration.
