CCTV Drain Surveys

Drain tech Essex and Suffolk offer CCTV Drain surveys for your drainage systems.  We can carry out CCTV Drain surveys from Harwich to Colchester and operate in most of Essex and some of Suffolk.

It’s a good idea to know what goes on below the surface when it comes to drains and drainage systems as this is the most effective way to see whether your drains and gullies can handle the levels of waste water, surface water and rainwater that go through them.

Sometimes blockages or problems will occur with drainages systems and these should be dealt with immediately.  Blocked drains, when left, can cause serious damage i.e flooding, broken pipes and long terms pipe leaks can result in structural damage to property, that can be very costly to repair.  Take a look at our blocked drains page to see if you’re experiencing any of the tell-tale signs of a drain blockage.  If you are you might want to consider having a CCTV drain survey done to assess what the problem is.    This is where a state of the art CCTV camera is fed down the drains to identify exactly where the blockage is and a report is provided on the basis of this assessment.

Why you might need a CCTV Drain Survey and some of the benefits

  • This is invaluable when buying a property as RICS surveyors don’t always carry the equipment to do this so when you have a survey done on a property you’re buying you might not get the drains inspected as part of the survey.
  • It’s possible to assess who owns what and where your drainage goes with a CCTV survey.
  • To check for Cracks and Fractures
  • To Check for Tree Root Ingress
  • You can identify build ups of fat and limescale, which are possible causes for blockages
  • Identify displaced or broken joints in the darinage system
  • Get a look at hidden inspection chamber, which may be the cause of bad smells in the property.
  • Check for infestations of rodents
  • Check for bad connections, i.e where. foul water is being discharging into a surface water soakaway. This can be costly if the soakaway fouls as these are not designed to take this type of waste water.
  • Idenify any sort of blockage and where it is so that it can be eradicated quickly and effectively.
