CCTV surveys are one of the best ways to know exactly what is happening inside your drains, so when might you need one?

Cctv Drain Survey Cumbria

Metro Rod North London can feed a small camera throughout your drainage system in a fully non-invasive way of inspecting your drains. The equipment Metro Rod use will be able to find leaks, cracks and blockages to name a few of its uses. Gone are the days of needing to dig down and create trenches to work out what is wrong with your drains, with the far more economical and simple way of CCTV surveys. 

Pre-Purchase Survey – before buying a new property we would always recommend booking in a CCTV survey of the drainage system. This way you are fully informed on the condition of the drains, helping you to uncover any problems that may arise if you do buy the property. Equally, if you are selling a property, a CCTV survey can help the sale go smoothly by showing there are no problems, or making sure they are fixed beforehand. 

Small Problems – if you are experiencing regular blocked drains or foul odours then a CCTV survey will help locate the problem and find out what exactly is causing it.

Pre-Build Survey – if you are thinking of carrying out building working then it is imperative that a CCTV survey is conducted. The water authorities will ask for one to be carried out if the build is happening over or near their pipeline to prevent any problems.

Animal Infestation – animals and rats in particular can be a nuisance to homes and businesses. Looking for food and shelter they will often make their way into drain pipes where they can damage and cause blockages within the pipes. 

Drainage Mapping – this is the process of mapping out the drainage system and sewer lines to find out where they go. This provides the information needed for any future works that need to occur.
