The Persistent Puddle – Time for a CCTV Drain Survey?
So your driveway is quite new and you’ve had the experts in to fit it. It’s got drainage channels, it’s nice and level and, up to now, you’ve been really pleased with it. However, there’s been some typically poor British summer weather to contend with and this new puddle seems persistent, pooling on the driveway and refusing to drain away. And now you’re beginning to think it smells a bit off too.
Sometimes the symptoms of a drainage problem present themselves as more of an inconvenience than a crisis, a nagging reminder to you that all isn’t as it should be. But you shouldn’t be deceived by the irritation factor – any symptom if left undiagnosed is likely to lead to something more serious. Which is why CCTV drain surveys are so important.
The CCTV drain survey is the thing that allows us to get to the heart of the matter for an accurate diagnosis of a drainage problem. It’s efficient, economical and causes minimal disruption. Once we’ve investigated we’ll supply you with a comprehensive report including a DVD of the CCTV footage, so you can see exactly what it is we’re referring to.
There are several things that might be the cause of an unwanted, persistent pool of water on your driveway. It might be from defective pipes, an undetected blockage, the incursion of tree roots. The important thing is that once we know, and you know, then we can submit a quotation for remedial work to get the problem sorted out once and for all.
That inconvenient puddle might be an early warning of something being not right. Our CCTV drain survey will confirm things one way or another. But it’s not the end of the world if the news is bad, because we’ll have the right drainage solution for you.
