Precise Integral Reports & Schematic Plans

Our reports provide essential information written in plain English with as little industry jargon as possible.

After we've been on site surveying the pipework accessible from manholes, gullies and access points, a report is compiled detailing:

  • The location of drainage runs
  • The internal condition of the pipework
  • The internal sizes of the pipework
  • Pipework materials
  • Hidden connections
  • Pipework defects

A schematic plan of the drainage system is included within the report. Any defects identified are highlighted and recommendations to repair are proposed with associated costs.

Manhole survey sheets will be completed and an internal photograph included for each manhole within the area surveyed. Manhole reference numbers will correspond to those given on the video and the following information will be provided:

  • Invert depths from the cover to each pipe entering or leaving the manhole.
  • Pipe diameters for all pipes entering or leaving the manhole.
  • A condition survey of the manhole including benching and the cover and/or frame.
  • A drawing of the manhole detailing all connection points and their orientation to the main outfall including flow arrow.

Hard copies of both the survey condition report and the manhole survey sheet will be provided with a DVD containing the survey footage.
