Our engineers can use CCTV surveys for a number of reasons including helping prevent drainage problems from worsening.

CCTV Surveys

The best way to know the full extent of the condition of your drains is by conducting a CCTV Drain Survey. We feed a small camera through the pipework which records exactly what is happening in your drains. The engineer is able to watch what is happening in realtime before making a fully informed assessment on what needs to be done. This is a very good way at spotting even the smaller damages that might not be starting to cause obvious problems. 

Proactive CCTV Surveys 

We can also use CCTV Surveys as a proactive means of conducting good drain maintenance and care. This is a preemptive method to stop any nasty surprises from cropping up, often if we notice something wrong that isn’t causing a problem at the time but we feel will only grow into a serious problem, we can fix it before it becomes much more costly. 

CCTV Surveys are also necessary when looking to buy a new home, it is part of the needed home survey to check everything is as it should be. You’ll want this to be carried out, as we can spot any problems and report back so that the sellers can have it all fixed before you sign the papers.

What might we find?

The short answer is, pretty much anything. A CCTV Survey is an extremely accurate way of checking out your drains which means we can spot a wide range of things that might be wrong in your drains. A few of the most common problems we find are:

      • Tree roots growing into the pipes
      • Blockages e.g. fatbergs, debris from outside
      • Collapsed drains
      • Cracked and leaking pipes
      • Animal/pest problem
      • Natural corrosion, wear and tear 

Reactive CCTV Surveys

A CCTV survey can also be used in response to noticing there is something wrong within your drains. If you start to notice your drains performance worsening we can use a CCTV survey to find out what is causing the problem. This gives our engineers a better idea on how to go about fixing your drains.
