CCTV surveys are an incredibly useful way for our engineers at Metro Rod North London to gain the full picture of your drains. 

Cctv Surveys

When you have a problem with your drains and you call Metro Rod North London to identify the problem we will often use a CCTV survey to find out what is going on. We use a small camera which is fed throughout the pipes until we can locate the issue. The footage is projected straight back to the engineer so they can make an informed decision of what to do next. 

What Can A CCTV Survey Do?

Our engineers will be able to identify a wide range of problems as the camera can pick up on most things. We will be able to find out whether there is damage or a blockage and what is causing these problems. The camera will be able to show the engineer issues caused by collapsed pipes, animal intrusion, wear and tear and causes of leaks. Which will give them the necessary information to decide how to go about finding the solution. Using a CCTV survey in this way is reactive to a problem that has already arisen. 

We may also use a CCTV survey to be proactive and prevent problems from occurring during a pre-planned maintenance visit. This will help catch any potential problems early on before they cause a real issue. 

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.
