CCTV Drain Surveys

Are you having problems with your drains? Our CCTV surveys will pinpoint the problem whether it’s a fault or a blockage.

Drain problems are unpleasant at best, destructive to health and property at worst.

Faulty or blocked drains can cause flooding, health hazards from overflowing sewage and damage to property.

The most obvious sign of a drain problem is an unpleasant smell, another giveaway is when sinks or baths take longer than usual to drain. The water in toilets rises after flushing when there is a blockage.

We have a large fleet of CCTV units and our expert CCTV survey crews can access even the most awkwardly positioned manholes to get a 360 degree picture of what is going on underground. The crew will carry out a thorough investigation of problem pipes to identify defects and blockages that can cause flooding and pollution.

You will receive a full report from the CCTV survey, including a DVD. In the case of a blocked drain, we can jet the pipework using our small jetting units which are designed for narrow domestic pipework.

We can also advise if the pipes need to be repaired. We offer a range of cost effective repair options including pipe re-lining. This technique can repair short sections of pipe with patches or longer stretches of up to 25 metres. Pipe re-lining does not involve any digging and returns a drain to better-than-new condition at a fraction of the cost of replacement.

If drain replacement is unavoidable, our civil engineering team will plan the works to keep disruption to a minimum.

If you’re concerned about a faulty or blocked drain, call or email us now to arrange a CCTV inspection. We’re available 24 hours, seven days a week and we aim to respond to emergency calls within four hours. You should always act quickly when you discover a drain problem to avoid overflow of sewage.

To help avoid blockages, only ever flush pee, poo and paper down the toilet. That means no sanitary items, wet wipes, food waste, fat, grease or anything else.  Fat, oils and grease can create particularly nasty problems over time.
