At Drain 247 we offer CCTV drain surveys to our Hertfordshire and London based customers.
CCTV drain surveys play an important part in allowing builders architects, surveyors, domestic & commercial property owners to understand the condition and location of the drainage network and to alert anyone to any potential problems. Drain surveys are one of the most valuable parts of any surveying process. Problematic and defective drains are often responsible for structural issues in a building such as fractures or collapse, root ingress or blockages.
Before the use of CCTV drain camera, it was hard to map drains accurately and this led to unreliable results. With the use of our expert, advanced CCTV drain inspection equipment we’re able to give you very accurate and reliable analysis of your drains which in turn helps to identify any issues that may be occurring within your drain system.
Common requirements may include identifying damaged or collapsed pipework; or to help trace a drainage system in order to install a new drain. CCTV drain surveys are also very popular when used to identify areas of damp that could cause subsidence and therefore used to identify these problems before buyers buy a property as part of a home buyer’s drain survey.
CCTV drain surveys and drain inspections are suitable for any type of property residential, commercial, industrial and are a great way to investigate and diagnose problems without having to dig up pipework.
In addition – we provide residential drain surveys and home buyers drain surveys throughout London, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas. Please contact us for a quote via our contact form or call us on 0800 612 8038.
What are the Benefits of CCTV Drain Survey?
CCTV Drain surveys play a vital role in allowing property owners, builders and architects to understand the condition and location of a drainage network.
In the past inspection and excavation would mean an engineer would have to perform surveys manually by entering pipes or by using other less accurate devices which could prove very costly for customers.
The development of modern CCTV drain survey technology means that inspecting drains and sewers is accurate, reliable and cost efficient. Now a wheel-mounted CCTV camera device can be placed into the drain or sewer system and it will send back high-quality images which are then displayed on a monitor allowing the drainage engineer to accurately survey the drains.
We have invested in this latest CCTV technology and as a result we’re able to help our customers find out exactly what’s wrong with their drains with minimal disruption. With our experienced, fully trained, and certified engineers, there’s not a problem that they can’t identify.
What’s Included with a Drain 247 CCTV Drain Survey?
Our process is simple; a qualified domestic drainage engineer will come to your property and they can complete a drain inspection with minimal disruption through various means, depending on your location.
Upon arrival, our engineers may need to lift manhole covers, open inspection caps, or possibly inspect the drains through the toilet. They will insert a CCTV camera into the different drain lines that serves the property to find out exactly the condition of the pipework and whether there is a problem in the underground drainage system.
After surveying all the lines, using data that has been gathered, we then compile it together and turn it into a comprehensive drain inspection report using the latest Viewline reporting software, which is MSCC5 compliant. In the report, there will be images, DVD recordings, the costs, as well as recommendations on how to fix the drainage system.
Insurance companies and mortgage lenders will often require a CCTV inspection to be carried out by a professional drainage company such as Drain247. We provide a MSCC5 compliant drain survey report which will satisfy all parties including solicitors for the CON29DW’s.
