Could You Benefit From a CCTV Drain Survey?

Are you thinking: that’s not for me? Perhaps the idea of a CCTV drain survey just doesn’t appeal to you. Does it sound too technical, too involved, too expensive, or just too much trouble? Think again: the CCTV drain survey is a really efficient, cost effective way of inspecting your drains.

It’s a fact of life that drains don’t clean themselves, and they get a lot of use and suffer a lot of wear and tear. We won’t go too far into the grim details, but plenty passes through your drains daily, including:

• bath and shower water
• dishwater; and
• toilet paper.

Clearly this isn’t the whole story. When you wash up there’s probably food waste and grease; when you shower and bath, and shave, there’s hair. Small pieces of soap can gradually clog up your drains, as can items you should never put down there, such as cotton wool buds, coffee grounds, paper towels, cooking fat and oil and solid food waste.

With constant use, and with the best will in the world, drains can become less efficient over time as they get coated in waste, and deposits build inside them. You may notice that your drains have started to smell, or that wastewater takes longer to drain away. These are symptoms that your drains are not at their best.

Now there are commercially available drain unblocking products you can try, but if you’re having to keep doing it, the message is that something is not right and it’s likely to get worse.

Which is where a CCTV drain survey proves its value. Using state-of-the-art technology we can put a camera down your drain, and follow your drain network, recording all the normally hidden details. This is a proven method for drain detection, and it’s both cost effective and non-disruptive – we won’t be digging around just to find out what state your drains are in.

At the end of it we produce a full report of our findings, together with a DVD of the actual CCTV drain survey footage, and our recommendations for remedial or preventative action.
