A CCTV drain survey is a very technical service that can be used for a variety of situations, such as finding out the conditions of your drains. CCTV drain surveys can be conducted on a regular basis and are very useful for ensuring that your drains are in prime condition.
The case of a blocked drain is not always as severe as a full water leak. Despite this, blocked drains are still extremely inconvenient, especially when they are happening on a constant basis. Many people try and use chemicals and rods in an attempt to clear the blockage in their drains, although this may be a good idea for the short-term, on a long-term basis these methods are not cost efficient and not a permanent solution. This is where CCTV drain surveys come in handy. A CCTV drain survey can locate the exact route of the problem and where it is. It may even reveal that there is somehow a large piece of sheeted metal in your drainpipe, of which is going to need a little more than vinegar and bicarbonate of soda!
Perhaps the most important time to conduct a few CCTV drain surveys, as when you are buying a new property, you want to make sure that it is up to standard with its maintenance, ensuring CCTV drain surveys are carried out right even before you have moved the house will reveal any minor or perhaps major problems with the property’s drainage systems. This will save you having to fork out of your own pocket if your drain bursts due to built up pressure from a blockage. As if a drain bursts a month into you purchasing a house, then all the repairs are liable with you as the previous seller may have already fled the country!
Drains are not your plumbers’ priority when doing a standard maintenance check over, this is because the drains are usually left until there is a problem. The most cost and time efficient ways of maintaining the durability of your drain are with annual CCTV drain surveys, this is because they will save you a lot of money and hardship in the long run. Neglecting any sort of maintenance on your drain, even something as simple as a 2-minute assessment by a professional, can lead to you having to pay needless costs in order to fix the problem. A CCTV drain survey will also detect any warning signs of a potential leak or breakage within your pipes as to just take that extra level of precaution in order to save your money for house improvements instead of repairs.
