We all know that buying a new home will be time consuming and costly so you’ll want to make sure you’ve got the full picture about you’re new property. 

House Sold

The last thing you’re going to want when you’ve bought a new house is some nasty shocks cropping up in the weeks following your purchase. This is where Metro Rod’s CCTV Drain Surveys come in. Our CCTV Drain Surveys can accurately diagnose any problems within your drainage system so that we can make a fully informed assessment on the condition of your drains. If you do have problems we can use this Survey to provide the best service, offering reliable quotes for the work that needs to be done. 

Why are CCTV Drain Surveys important for a new house?

It is a required part of buying a property to do a general home survey to fully assess it and is something that insurance and mortgage companies will ask for. In many of these home surveys however, the drainage system is often overlooked. This could be for a couple of reasons, for example its out of sight and then out of mind, but nonetheless is is extremely important to the functionality of the house that your drainage system is in top working order. The last thing you’ll want is a burst pipe, leaking sewage or a collapsed pipe after buying a new home. 

Metro Rod Mid Wales use the latest iTouch Live technology for our CCTV Surveys which allows us to carry out real time inspections of your drains. This system allows us to collect the footage and data from your drains which is then streamed back to the office so that it can be processed. In most cases this will have happened by the time the engineer has packed up their equipment. We are then in a position to provide you with the best next step as we will have a clear picture on the work that needs to be done. 

Our CCTV Surveys can spot a number of different problems that you may have, including;

  • Cracked or leaking pipes
  • Any blockages and the location of it
  • Collapsed drain pipe in the system 
  • Tree roots growing in the pipes

Having a full CCTV is a quick and non-invasive way to identify any potential problems which could have an impact on the price you pay for a property or the potential work the sellers need to do before you buy it. So it’s definitely in your best interest to invest in a CCTV survey before you invest in the property.
