CCTV Surveys

Exploring the Unseen: CCTV Drain Surveys

When it comes to inspecting drains, few methods match the sophistication and effectiveness of CCTV surveys. Our state-of-the-art CCTV technology allows us to unveil the concealed realm of your drainage system, providing real-time insights into its condition.

How CCTV Drain Surveys Operate

Detecting blockages is a straightforward task, but assessing the structural integrity of drains, sewers, and pipes can be a complex endeavor. CCTV technology enables us to not only identify issues but also pinpoint their precise locations.

Utilising advanced 360° Wincan verification software eliminates the need for manual drain entry during surveys. This results in a more efficient and effective operation, as there’s no time wasted on physical assessments by operators. Moreover, the ultra-high-resolution images and the cameras’ maneuverability facilitate meticulous analysis.

Even hairline cracks, which can be detrimental to pipework by causing exterior runoff that leads to more extensive damage, are easily discernible through our CCTV units. These devices produce images of such clarity that even the slightest flaws don’t escape detection.

CCTV footage can also be instrumental in identifying entry points for rodents, cockroaches, and other pests. These pests not only cause structural harm but also pose health risks to humans, so swift action is crucial to prevent their manifestation. Upon detection, defect repair can commence through patch lining, restoring the piping to optimal condition and blocking access for pests via the drains.

Every image captured is accompanied by a technical report outlining the issues and recommended repair solutions, whether is a patch repair or new drain lining.

Why SWD Lining?

At SWD Lining, we employ high-resolution cameras capable of maneuvering through drains capturing detailed interior images. This enables us to spot blockages, cracks, collapsed sections, root intrusions, and any other irregularities.

As the CCTV camera navigates your drains, our team of experts can view the footage in real-time. This real-time inspection allows us to detect issues instantly, enabling us to provide on-the-spot assessments and recommendations.

Our CCTV surveys also assist in creating precise and comprehensive drainage maps of your property or site. These maps are invaluable for future reference and streamline maintenance efforts.

When to Opt for a CCTV Drain Survey

While CCTV surveys are advantageous in various scenarios, they are particularly beneficial in the following situations:

Recurrent Drainage Problems: If you face persistent issues like repeated blockages, foul odors, or slow drainage, a CCTV survey can pinpoint the root causes.

Pre-Purchase Drain Inspection: Planning to purchase a new property? A pre-purchase CCTV survey can reveal hidden drainage problems, enabling 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 completely resolved.

Carrying out CCTV surveys is an essential step in drain and sewer lining and can save time, money and resources.
