CCTV Drain Surveys: What are they?

Your drains play an instrumental role in your residential and commercial properties. When they go wrong, you need to see what the problem is, and when the main challenges are within a drainage system it can be difficult to see what is really going on.  

Happy Drains specialise in CCTV inspections which include surveys to detect issues with your drainage systems. We provide a service which is there for you if you’re moving into a new property and are keen to ensure your drainage system is in full and working order with no nasty surprises awaiting you. We can also use our CCTV equipment to ensure any potential extensions are adhering to the standard of the drainage system required. 

A CCTV drain survey is done using our high-tech CCTV cameras which we insert into your drains to start the inspection. The cameras then give us a HD feed of the condition of your interior drainage system. Especially in the areas that are not visible to the naked eye. 

Once we have inspected your drains, we will then compile a detailed survey report. Our professional drain survey will come complete with a written technical report using industry-standard software. The information provided will be the date, manhole numbers, size of pipe material, shape, direction, distance (m), lengths, remarks and pictures of relevant observation, as well as recommendations on how we will resolve any outstanding issues.

Next we can take the relevant course of action to rectify the issues and make sure you have ‘happy drains’! 

If you are concerned about your drains potentially being blocked, or require an annual inspection, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
