CCTV Drain Surveys from Metro Rod

Drainage problems are not always visible. They can arise from the depths of the drain, where it can be difficult to see what is going on. This is where CCTV Drain Surveys come in.
CCTV drain surveys allow for the easy identification and surveying of potential problems that may arise from your drains. Through using high tech, specially designed, cameras we can identify the source of a potential problem and fix it before any larger symptoms occur.
CCTV drain cameras can also be used when it is suspected that there could be blockage in the pipe. Through using a specialised camera, it is possible to identify what is blocking the pipes so that it can be removed in the most efficient way possible.

How do CCTV drain surveys work?

CCTV drain surveys work by feeding a specially designed camera down the drain in order to carry out the inspection. The CCTV camera sends live footage to a screen that our engineers use to examine the drain. Based on the visual data, our engineers can provide instant feedback and recommendations on the next steps.
Once the analysis has been completed, we share the report along with the recorded video of the drain and a full set of recommendations.

The drain survey experts, our engineers have conducted over 274,000 pipeline surveys in the last 10 years. We have 130 bespoke iTouch CCTV systems working across our network of 40+ depots, so wherever you are, you can guarantee the best quality service.

Pre-purchase drain surveys

When purchasing a house or a property it is commonplace for the buyer to get surveys done on their behalf, looking into a wide variety of potential problems – from subsidence to environmental conditions. That being said, it can be easy to miss getting a drain survey done, and it’s all too common for one to be ignored only for problems to occur later on down the line.
Huge issues can hide within our drains, so a pre-purchase drain survey can highlight any potential drainage problems before it’s too late.

Our engineers can conduct a full investigation of the house’s drains and provide a detailed report and high-quality video footage to summarise their findings. This means that it is possible for you to rest easy, knowing that your property doesn’t have any hidden drainage issues lurking beneath the surface.

Vendor Surveys, Build Over Surveys, and Large Diameter Pipe Surveys

As well as offering pre-purchase surveys, at Metro Rod we offer a wider variety of other specialist surveys designed for different types of projects and drains. These include vendor surveys, build over surveys, and surveys specifically designed for large diameter pipes. These different types of survey are designed to fit their need and are useful to diagnosing a multitude of different potential problems before they occur.

Using the Best Possible Software and Equipment

At Metro Rod, we have invested in the very best software and equipment possible for our CCTV surveys. Our engineers use bespoke iTouch Live systems, designed specifically for the requirements of our customers.

CCTV Drain Survey FAQ

What can a CCTV Drain Survey identify?

CCTV surveys can diagnose a wide variety of potential problems, including different forms of blockages and signs of wear and tear. A survey can also be used to identify areas of weakness within a drainage system. That includes being able to diagnose issues caused by collapsed drains, tree roots, blockages, causes of leaks or burst pipes, signs of wear and tear, signs of corrosion, animal intrusions and displaced elements.

Why would I need a CCTV Drain Survey?

Aside from CCTV drain surveys being a diagnosis tool and helping prevent large scale problems there are a few additional reasons you may want to consider one.

Firstly, when a new drainage system is installed, the Local Water Authority may insist in a CCTV survey prior to the adoption of the system. Likewise, developers may ask their ground workers for a post-completion survey.

For commercial organisations, you may want to map your drains to help map pollution sources, or when buying land for commercial and residential developments. Click here for more information on our Asset Mapping service.

On the domestic side of drain surveys, insurance companies may ask for surveys for claiming purposes. Home buyers and home sellers may want to consider a CCTV drain survey to ensure there are no problems prior to moving in.

How long does a CCTV Survey take?

A CCTV drain survey can vary in how long it takes to complete based on the length and the diameter of the drains. For a small system they can be completed within two hours. For a larger system it will take a longer amount of time. Our engineers will also provide a full quote and time estimate before any work is carries out.

How much does a CCTV Drain Survey cost?

Prices can vary depending on how long it takes to survey the drain. How long it takes to survey the drain will depend on both how long the drainage system is and how wide the diameter of the pipes are.

What does a CCTV Drain Survey Report Include?

A CCTV drain report includes a large amount of information designed to help you verify the health of your drains. A CCTV survey report contains an overview of the job, including how long it took, the length of the drain surveyed, and initial findings. The report will then include a full list of recommendations based on the findings, a map of the drains, and a survey sheet.

Alongside the report we share the video and photographic footage taken during the survey.

What are the benefits of the iTouch Live technology?

At Metro Rod we use state of the art technology to conduct our drain surveys. The software we have chosen to use is called iTouch Live and we have chosen it due to the benefit it has for our customers.

iTouch Live technology is quick, reliable, and accurate. It is cost effective and can be done with minimal disruption. The best news however, for those who are concerned about the impact a drain survey may have on the local environment, is that the iTouch Live technology means that there is no need for time consuming or costly excavation in order to survey the drains. This saves both time and money.
