Why should you seriously consider a CCTV drain survey?

For home buyers, a full survey and test could save you the inconvenience and extra cost of emergency repair work after you have purchased the property.

For home owners, as well as peace of mind, a drain survey can uncover the causes of persistent blocked drains such as collapsed pipes which restrict the flow or waste water. Our trained engineers can unblock drains for you. Where there is an underlying problem such as collapsed drains, then the additional cost can sometimes be covered by your buildings insurance. We often liaise with insurers to manage everything for you and fix the problem for you as well.

A closed circuit television (CCTV) survey can uncover and locate the following types of drain defects:

  • Pipe cracks/holes/broken pipes
  • Root intrusion
  • Displaced joints
  • Open joint
  • Debris
  • Defective pitch fibre
  • Leaking pipes, which can lead to subsidence

If any of these problems are found during the survey one of our engineers will give you professional advice on the potential severity of the problem and what work needs to be done to rectify the problem.
