CCTV drain surveys are different from the normal uses of CCTV. Rather than being used to monitor crime, they are used to look at the inside of your drains, finding any damage or blockages. Keep reading to find out when you need a survey and what the benefits are.
What is a CCTV drain survey?
During a survey, we send a small CCTV camera down through your drains. The camera is attached to circuits that can fit deep into your drains, allowing us to get a very large picture of what is happening inside.
The footage is connected to a monitor, where we can observe the footage taken inside your drains. This allows us to look for any damage, such as cracked/collapsed pipes and blockages.
When do I need a CCTV drain survey?
You can have a CCTV drain survey any time you feel necessary, although there are two main reasons people usually have them.
When buying a new house it is always a good idea to have a survey carried out, so you can check everything is okay with the drainage system. A surveyor will have looked at your manhole covers, but they won't be able to look so deeply into your drains, as we can with CCTV cameras. This allows you to find out if there are any underlying problems with the house you are about to buy.
The other main reason is to find out if your drains or damaged. If you have been experiencing slow drains or sewage backing up into your house, it is probably caused by blocked or damaged drains. If this is the case in your home, get in touch with our team today for a CCTV drain survey.
