Typically when we see a blockage in a home or larger building we can work out how to fix it, where the blockage is coming from and how we can solve the issue.

However, in larger and more complex cases there can be times when we need to call on our high quality technology to give us a helping hand in figuring out where the issue is coming from. This is when we use CCTV drain surveys.

CCTV drain surveys are used to inspect drains and pipes and are often required to find problems which cannot be identified easily, for example cracked or broken pipes or large blockages. At Metro Rod Reading we use highly specialist equipment to ensure our CCTV surveys are delivered using the most up to date technology – iTouch Live. We are able to provide a completely transparent, virtual and real time report on your drains and sewers. Using CCTV surveys we collect data and can live stream to our Metro Rod Reading offices to be processed – this allows our engineers to identify issues and solutions as quickly as possible. This allows for the inspection report to be sent off and progressed and we will even get a copy to you!

Through having a CCTV survey using this high quality technology we are able to detect problems – no matter how small or big they are and therefore can provide solutions in a quick and timely manner. We can deliver the inspection reports to you through our live web portal or, if you prefer, we can post a printed copy and DVD to you. We can also provide reports using traditional WINCAN reporting software and can provide more information on this upon enquiry.

In basic terms CCTV drain surveys use small cameras which go into the drain and show us in live time what is going on in that particular drain, this is recorded, analysed by our engineers and the issue at hand identified – it is a simple and easy way of solving these harder to solve drain issues and achieve our goal of having clear drains!
