What is a Look-See

What is a Look-See

We have all heard of CCTV Drainage surveys, they are a service that we find absolutely indispensable.  They allow us an inside look to the inner workings of your pipework, so we can discover why that blockage isn't clearing or what that odour is being caused by.

CCTV Survey:

A full camera survey, depending on the site is exceptionally detailed.  Our engineers will track and pin point every possible defect that is seen in the line.  This is called 'coding'.  Once this has been completed it will be passed back to our technical team in the office, they will then go through it all to check every minute detail before passing the report and any recommendations back to the client.

Elements of a full CCTV Survey:

  • Accurate
  • Detailed
  • Coded
  • Ends with a full report
  • Live video footage for the client to see

When do you need a CCTV survey?

A CCTV survey can be required for a number of reasons, such as:

  • Home buyer survey
  • Pre and post building works
  • Pre and post demolition works
  • Insurance quotations
  • Re-occurring smells/blockages

Look See Survey:

A look-see survey is something that we choose to do as a company to ensure that we leave a site with peace of mind that we have sorted the issue completely.  When we have been to a job we will pop the camera down the line to check the condition of the drain and see if there is anything that needs attention.  This will then be recorded and sent back to our technical office staff who will look over it and briefly identify any potential or current issues to the client.

Elements of a Look-See:

  • Quick look
  • No coding
  • Recommendations will come with pictures rather than footage
  • Free

When is a Look see beneficial?

A look see is beneficial after any drainage job.  there are many cases where the issue appears to be resolved and the 'blockage cleared' yet consistently re-occurs.  Only to discover that the problem is much larger than a simple blockage after putting a camera down. with this in mind we are pleased to confirm that we have just taken delivery of 5 new camera reels and boxes meaning every engineer in our entire fleet, throughout Hull, Lincolnshire and Peterborough now has the equipment to carry out a look-see survey after every job for FREE to give our customers the best service and peace of mind they deserve.
