CCTV drain surveys are a simple and cost-effective way to assess your drainage network.
A drain survey can uncover the reasons behind drain problems, like blocked drains, smelly drains, slow flowing drains, and assess drain systems (completing WinCan Reports using WinCan software) for those buying, selling, developing, or renting property.
- Homebuyer Drain Surveys detect any potential drainage problems before you buy your dream home, to avoid hidden surprises later on
- Build Over Surveys flag potential issues with your drainage system that may arise during building work, and are sometimes required by local water authorities before work starts
- Pre-Tenancy Home Surveys provide you with a report on your drains’ condition, protecting you against disputes with tenants over issues like blocked drains requiring sewer cleaning
Are CCTV drain surveys the best solution?
CCTV drain surveys can save time and energy, whether you have long-term drain issues or an emergency drain blockages to resolve. Using the latest technology, our Drain Power Ltd engineers can identify drain damage, blockages, leaks, or displaced drains quickly, without having to dig a single hole. By working remotely, it’s also one of the safest ways to investigate drains. Our cameras can investigate severely damaged pipes or blocked drains, returning high-quality images that can be used to identify the quickest and cheapest solution to your drainage problems. Working with Drain Power Ltd, you’ll have drainage engineers on site to advise whether your CCTV drain surveys show you need new drains, a drain cleaning service or drain lining service.
What problems can CCTV surveys find?
Our in-depth CCTV drain surveys reveal why drainage problems like blocked sinks and appliances, flooding, and foul smells are occurring. They can detect issues caused by:
- Blocked drains
- Scale accumulation
- Rodent issues
- Cracked and damaged drains
- Collapsed drains
- Displaced joints in your drains
- Tree root mass and ingress
CCTV drain surveys aren’t just used to find leaks, bursts, and blocked drains though; we also carry out CCTV surveys for our Homebuyer Drain Surveys (for sellers and buyers), our Build Over Surveys (for those undergoing building work), and our Pre-Tenancy Home Surveys (for landlords wanting to protect themselves from future tenancy disputes).
What happens during CCTV drain surveys?
Our expert CCTV survey team assess your drain network and select the best equipment from our range of cutting-edge waterproof cameras, including motorised remote crawlers and push rod cameras, which are propelled through narrow pipes using flexible rods.
They receive a live feed through state-of-the-art software systems, designed for CCTV drain surveys (up to water authority standards for WinCan Reports), so they can stop and investigate any problem areas in depth. We also record the feed, uploading the data for future use and can show you where your drains require sewer cleaning or repairs. This also allows us to create reports after our Homebuyer Drain Surveys, Build Over Surveys, and Pre-Tenancy Home Surveys.
During CCTV drainage surveys, we can also map your drainage system, calculating the length, quality, and gradient of pipes, and assessing flow rates and routes.
