What is CCTV Drainage?
A CCTV drain survey is an in-depth inspection of your drainage system using specially designed CCTV cameras.
CCTV drain surveys also allow for the easy identification and surveying of potential problems that may arise from your drains. Through using our high tech, specially designed, CCTV 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. Our CCTV surveys use these specialised cameras to conduct a full drain inspection which identifies what’s blocking the pipes, so that it can be removed in the most efficient way possible. This helps return your drain to complete working condition.
How Do CCTV Drainage Surveys Work?
Drain CCTV camera 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 directly to you on-site.
Once the analysis has been completed, we share the full drain CCTV camera survey report along with the recorded video of the drain system and a full set of recommendations with you.
By conducting a CCTV camera drain inspection, we are conducting a full investigation into what could be causing the problems with your drains. No matter whether your drains are blocked, cracked or collapsed, a CCTV survey will help to identify the problem so that a suitable solution can be recommended. CCTV surveys are an essential part of diagnosing drainage problems so that they can be fixed as soon as possible.
CCTV drain surveys can be conducted on all diameters of drains and are suitable for both commercial and domestic properties. So no matter the size of your drainage system, we are here to help.

When Do 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.
Pre-purchase Drain Surveys
When purchasing a house or other 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. It can however be easy to miss getting a drain survey done when approving other surveys, and it’s all too common for drain problems to then occur later down the line.
Huge issues can hide within our drains, so a pre-purchase drain survey can highlight any potential drainage problems for you before it’s too late.
Our engineers can conduct a full investigation of your new home’s drains using our specialist CCTV cameras and provide a detailed report to summarise their findings and make recommendations for any corrective works which may be needed. Along with the drain survey report, we provide all the video footage too, giving you full access to all the materials you need. This means that you can rest easy, knowing that your property doesn’t have any hidden drainage issues lurking beneath the surface.
