A CCTV drain survey involves a specialised camera being inserted into a drain to record what is inside, helping to identify blockages and other problems. To complete this survey, an advanced, high quality camera is attached to a strong, flexible wire and is trailed into drains and through pipes.

CCTV drain surveys are used to monitor the condition of your drainage system and can accurately discover issues and blockages within your pipes.

What are the benefits of using CCTV drain surveys?

Drain surveying using CCTV is a less time consuming method of assessing your pipes and drainage systems. Using a camera to locate problems will effectively reduce time by removing the stage of engineers physically viewing your pipes. A plan of solution can be created simply from what is discovered within the recordings. 

As well as being time efficient, requesting a drain CCTV survey is often a cost effective choice due to being able to identify and deal with both current problems and future weaknesses within your drainage system. After your drains have been surveyed, you will be informed of the issues and ways these can best be solved. 

A CCTV drain survey is able to identify a multitude of potential problems, including any evidence of structural damage, corrosion, animal interference, collapsed drains, blockages, tree root ingress and causes of leaks and burst pipes. High quality cameras will live record the images of the insides of your drain and your engineer will be able to report to you the issues and offer practical solutions.

The use of advanced cameras in CCTV drain surveys will ensure accuracy when identifying problems so the right areas can be targeted and solved. Conducting a drain CCTV survey is also not likely to cause much damage or disruption to your drainage system. This is due to the camera revealing the precise location engineers will need to access, allowing them to directly target the right areas to solve the issues.
