In order to maintain your drains in good condition, it helps to have the full picture of what is going on down there.

The best way to know what is happening in your drains, and the condition of them, is by having Metro Rod Glasgow come and take a look via a CCTV Drain Survey. In this article, we will explain what a CCTV Survey is, how we carry one out, why you may need one and what we may find.


What is a CCTV Drain Survey?

A CCTV Drain Survey is an in-depth inspection of your drainage system using a small camera which is inserted and fed through your drains, providing real time footage of what is down there. It allows the engineer to make a full assessment with all the details so we know how best to approach the problem.


Why would I need a CCTV Drain Survey?

You will need a CCTV Drain Survey if you are looking to buy a new home as it is part of a general home survey. You will be given a precise overview of the property’s drains so you know what you are buying into. The survey allows the buyers to make a fully informed decision before buying the house, in case there is work to be done.

You may also need a CCTV Drain Survey if you are repeatedly having problems with your drains. A CCTV Survey can identify the problem and we can then get to the root of it so it is no longer an issue.


What might we find?

Now you know a bit more about what a CCTV Drain Survey is and why you need one, the next thing you’ll wonder is what might we find with one. And the short answer is, pretty much any drainage issue you may have.

CCTV Surveys are designed to provide an extensive insight into the condition of your drains, and so we can identify a number of issues whether they are small or extensive. Here are the most common things we come across;

  • Collapsed drains
  • In growing tree roots
  • Animal problem
  • Blockages
  • Leaks and burst pipes and the extent of them
  • General wear and tear and corrosion

No matter what the problem may be, our Metro Rod engineers will be able to come up with the best solution and plan for getting it sorted, so you needn’t worry any longer.
