CCTV Drain Surveys

Get a clear picture of your drains and issues with our state-of-the-art CCTV drain surveys

Drains, sewers and pipes are often hidden from view and buried deep underground. This makes it difficult to understand the exact cause and nature of drainage problems, or see potential issues around the corner.

DALROD’s CCTV drain surveys are the solution. They provide a live video feed from inside your drains and sewers, allowing us to clearly see what’s going on inside them – and, crucially, reveal what is causing your drainage trouble.

CCTV drain surveys are also vital in helping to avoid major future problems, by spotting issues before they become serious.

When do you need a CCTV drain survey?

As well as for drain maintenance, CCTV drain surveys are invaluable for…

  • Understanding ongoing drainage issues. Blockages, overflowing wastewater or unexplained smells? A CCTV drain survey will quickly reveal the root cause of the problem.
  • Homebuyer drain survey. It may not be the sexiest part of buying your home, but it’s a vital one. A homebuyer drain survey prior to purchasing can save expensive headaches further down the line.
  • Drainage mapping. Whether it’s part of a pre-build survey or environmental audit, CCTV drain surveys give you a clear picture of your drainage system’s potentially complex layout.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM a CCTV drain survey?

  1. Technician(s) deploy cameras via crawler or push rod systems
  1. Live video feed from your drain, giving clear insight into the system
  1. Comprehensive report identifies findings and recommended remedies

Typical work following a CCTV drain survey includes drain cleaning and unblocking, fat, oil and grease removal or drain and sewer repair. This work can be carried out immediately, or at a later date if preferred.

What can a CCTV drain survey reveal?

A CCTV drain survey can reveal many issues inside your drains, including:

  • Blockages
  • Broken and/or collapsed drains
  • Cracked and fractured drains
  • Joint displacement
  • Tree root ingression
  • Scale and build-ups of fat, oil and grease (FOG)
  • Evidence of corrosion or wear and tear
  • Detection of rodents within the drainage system

What are the benefits of a CCTV drain survey?

Aside from the immediate identification of problems within the drains, a CCTV drain survey also has three major benefits:

Reduces bills

In just one CCTV drain survey, we will be able to find the cause of the drainage problem and provide you with a cost-effective solution – therefore lowering the number of site visits and costs.

Gather vital information

Arranging a CCTV drain survey before purchasing or starting any property project allows you to avoid any unforeseen problems and costs. As the saying goes, forewarned is forearmed!

Avoid future problems

Spot problems – such as nasty build-ups of FOG, corrosion and drain damage – long before they become a serious issue. The earlier potential problems are found, the easier and cheaper they are to resolve.
