CCTV Drain Surveys are very beneficial for finding out what exactly is going on in your drains, but what makes them so good?

A CCTV Drain Survey uses a small camera which is fed throughout the entirety of your drainage system to check for any problems, big or small. It provides our engineers at Metro Rod Newcastle with the full picture on what the condition of your drains are. They are then able to come up with the best plan of action to fix any problems within your drains. 

Why are CCTV Surveys so useful?

  1. Minimal disruption - they save a lot of time and are not disruptive to your property as it just requires a small camera being fed through your drains. We no longer have to dig around the drains to find the problem as the CCTV Survey will locate the problem and show the engineer what is wrong.
  2. Accuracy - using a camera we can accurately see what is causing the problem, no matter how small or big the damage of blockage, the camera should be able to pick it up. So whether it is a tree root, a fatberg, or a crack or fracture in the pipes we will be able to spot it and effectively come up with a solution for you.
  3. Cost effective - as we can identify the problem relatively quickly and without having to dig around to locate the problem. 
  4. Speed - a CCTV Survey projects the image back to a screen with the engineer which means the problem can be assessed there and then. 

Regular drain maintenance is key if you want to prevent yourself from nasty shocks in the future. A lot of the time drains are treated with the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ attitude which means we often forget about them until something goes wrong and they aren’t working properly. So finding a small problem is hugely beneficial to you as they can be fixed far more easily than a problem that has been left and over time got worse.
