How does a CCTV Drain Survey Work?

Here at MJ Drains, we specialise in offering a range of drainage services to both residential and commercial clients. Making use of innovative machinery, we use CCTV technology to carry out drain inspections, providing you with a drain survey in order for us to move forward in finding a solution to any drainage issues you may be experiencing. Today we are going to focus on CCTV drain surveys and how they work.

Why Use a CCTV Drain survey?

Whether you are a homeowner or a landlord, it is necessary to have periodic inspections of all areas of your property, including its drainage system. You may know you have an issue of blocked drains or noticed other signs of a drainage issue such as slow draining water. A CCTV survey allows us to find out exactly what the cause of the problem is, by looking at the condition of the building’s infrastructure from above the ground. The major benefit of CCTV drain inspections is that we can see what your drainage system looks like underground without the need for unnecessary excavation.

Who can Benefit from a CCTV Drain Survey?

A CCTV drain survey is performed by the trained professionals, allowing us to identify the cause of any drainage issues, and have the evidence to offer, whether you need to demonstrate sound service infrastructure when putting your property on the market, or as part of regular building maintenance.  We can carry out residential CCTV surveys for prospective buyers, current occupants, and landlords who are keen to document the proper maintenance of their property.

What is Involved in a CCTV Drain Survey?

A typical CCTV drain inspection will involve using an existing manhole as an entry point to the drainage system on your property. Then our technician can feed a hose directly into the drainpipe, which will also have a floodlight and camera, to enable us to view the footage from above the ground. As the camera is manoeuvred through the system, the images are sent back to the operator at the surface.  Domestic CCTV drain surveys are likely to just take a few minutes, and in that time, we can get the information to provide you with a survey detailing the location of any blockages, obstructions, and leaks, monitoring the overall condition of the pipes. This is the same for commercial CCTV drainage surveys, both in response to a problem or as part of your regular maintenance.  When our team discovers a fault during a drain inspection, they will be able to advise you on how to proceed and supply a competitive quote.
