Do you know why and when Metro Rod would need to carry out a CCTV survey on your drains?

A CCTV survey gives our engineers an accurate and informative picture of what is happening down in our drains. But what are the reasons we may need to carry one out?

When is a CCTV Survey Necessary?


If you are constantly finding yourself with blocked drains or think you need them inspected for a different reason, then a CCTV Survey with Metro Rod is the answer. We know that most of time people will try and fix a blocked drain themselves by pouring bleach or other chemicals down the pipes. However this isn’t always a permanent solution. We find that more often than not, chemicals will only remove part of the blockage meaning your pipes and drains are susceptible to future blockages. By having a CCTV Survey we will be able to accurately reveal the cause of the blockage and then treat it in the most effective way, as it may not be a build up but rather a tree root. 

Drain Maintenance 

In the UK we know how bad the weather can get and can have an impact on our drains, so regular drain maintenance can play a huge part in preventing drain damage. More often than not drains will go ignored until something goes wrong, if small problem is fixed before it becomes serious damage then normally it can be resolved quickly and at a low cost. A regular CCTV Survey can therefore identify any minor problems before it is too late.

Damage and Wear and Tear

If you are having problems with your drains we suspect there may be damage such as a cracked or leaking pipe then we may use a CCTV to locate the problem and see the extent of the damage. This will allow our engineers to come up with the correct solution to repair your drains.

The iTouch CCTV system allows us to collect the data from your drains and is streamed in real time back to the office for processing. In the large majority of cases this data will have created a report which is ready for the next step all by the time the engineer has packed up their tools. Using only the best technology means that we can provide instant assistance to ensure that even the most complex of situations are analysed fully and efficiently.
