CCTV Drain Inspections

Drain Inspections

Drainage systems are a fundamental component, responsible for the efficient removal of wastewater and the maintenance of a hygienic environment. However, drains are prone to various issues over time, such as blockages, cracks, root intrusion, and corrosion, which can lead to significant problems if left unattended.

We provide comprehensive drain inspection and CCTV survey services, enabling us to explore the depths of your drainage network, identify potential issues and offer targeted solutions to keep your drains in optimal condition.

The Significance of Drain Inspection

Regular drain inspections are a critical facet of property maintenance that should never be underestimated. Here’s why it holds such importance:

Early Issue Detection

Drainage problems often begin as minor concerns and progressively escalate into major issues. Routine inspections enable us to catch these problems early, addressing them before they necessitate costly repairs.

Preventative Maintenance

Timely drain inspections allow for preventive maintenance, ensuring that your drainage system operates smoothly and avoids unexpected breakdowns.

Preserving Property Value

A well-maintained drainage system enhances the value of your property, while neglected drains can lower property value and deter potential buyers or tenants.

Health and Hygiene

Blocked or damaged drains can result in foul odors and attract pests, compromising the hygiene and well-being of your living or working space.

CCTV Drain Surveys: Revealing the Unseen

One of the most advanced and effective methods of drain inspection is through CCTV surveys. Our cutting-edge CCTV technology grants us access to the hidden world within your drains, providing real-time insights into their condition.

How CCTV Drain Surveys Operate

Identifying a blockage is straightforward, but understanding the structural integrity of drains, sewers, and pipes is more complex. Utilising CCTV technology allows us to visualise the issue and its precise location.

Our use of advanced 360° Wincan verification software for surveys eliminates the need for manual drain entry, enhancing the efficiency of operations. The ultra-high-resolution images and easy maneuverability of our cameras contribute to a more detailed analysis.

CCTV footage is instrumental in identifying entry points for rodents, cockroaches, and other pests. Not only do they cause structural damage to buildings, but pests also pose health risks to humans. Detection allows for swift defect reparation, restoring the piping to good working condition and preventing access for pests via the drains.

Each captured image is provided with a technical report outlining the issues and recommended steps for repair.

High-Resolution Cameras

We employ high-resolution cameras capable of navigating through drains, and capturing detailed interior images. This enables us to identify blockages, cracks, collapsed sections, root intrusions, and other irregularities.

Real-Time Inspection

As the CCTV camera navigates through your drains, our expert team can view the footage in real-time. This enables instant issue detection, allowing us to provide on-the-spot assessments and recommendations.

Precise Mapping

Our CCTV surveys assist in creating accurate and comprehensive drainage maps for your property or site. These maps are invaluable for future reference and facilitate more efficient maintenance.

When to Consider a CCTV Drain Survey

While CCTV surveys are advantageous in various scenarios, they are especially beneficial in specific situations:

Recurrent Drainage Problems

If you experience persistent issues like repeated blockages, foul odors, or slow drainage, a CCTV survey can pinpoint the root cause.

Pre-Purchase Drain Inspection

When planning to purchase a new property, a pre-purchase CCTV survey can uncover hidden drainage problems, allowing you to make an informed decision.

Post-Repair Assessment

After addressing drainage issues through repairs or maintenance, a CCTV survey can confirm whether the problem has been fully resolved.

Home Extensions or Renovations

Before embarking on a home extension or renovation project, conducting a CCTV survey is prudent to ensure your existing drainage system can accommodate the changes.
