When Do You Need Drain Survey?

There are several times when you need our services, such as:

Water Pooling: This often happens due to blocked or collapsed pipelines. CCTV survey helps in detecting the problem point and the actual reasons behind it.

Slow Drainage: When pipes get clogged, it leads to slow water drainage. Pinpointing the exact location of the block can be challenging without CCTV drain inspection.

Unpleasant Odour: Improper disposal of waste material and accumulation of food and other materials in the drain pipes can result in a foul smell. A CCTV survey for sewer lines will help detect this smell’s origin.

Pest Infestation: If you suspect rats or other rodents in your home, it may be due to a damaged drain system, as it can serve as the entrance for these pests. CCTV drain surveys can be used to locate the damaged area leading to pest infestation.

How Do We Perform CCTV Drain Surveys?

We have skilled and professional CCTV drain surveyors to conduct domestic or industrial CCTV drain surveys. The steps involved in this inspection are: 


The sewer is prepared for CCTV survey by cleaning and removing obstructions. It is done to ensure that the camera can move freely in the pipelines and provide detailed information.

Insertion of the Camera

A specialised camera is then fed into the drain system through an access point. Usually, a maintenance hole or inspection site is used as an insertion point for the camera.

Camera Control and Operation

The camera is now operated by an expert technician. It moves in the drainage system and captures high-resolution photos and videos.

Real-Time Monitoring

The technician monitors and analyses the live footage delivered by the camera, looking for cracks, blockages, and other hidden sewer damages. 

Documentation & Analysis

Now, the information or footage received is documented to make detailed reports. These reports contain a DVD of the live feed and a schematic diagram. The reports are then analysed to suggest a suitable solution for the problem, such as , cleaning, repairs or maintenance.
