What is CCTV drain survey?

For thousands of years, one of the biggest humanity challenges has been to provide clean water and sanitisation systems. This evolved greatly from trenches to extensive drainage systems to what we have today. With the forever evolving ways to install, maintain and fix drainage systems the use of CCTV technology now plays a major role in our day to day role. 

Happy Drains specialise in CCTV inspections and surveys to detect drainage problems. Our service is there for you if you’re either moving into a new property and are keen to ensure your drainage system is in full and working order with no nasty surprises hiding away. You could also be looking to inspect your current London property, and we can 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 with us using our high tech CCTV cameras which we insert into your drains. The cameras then give us an HD feed of the condition of your interior drainage system. The survey will determine the structural condition and the serviceably of the drainpipe. During the inspection we will note all defects and issues to allow you to understand how the drain works and its condition.

Once we have inspected your drains we will compile a survey report. Any professional drain survey should come complete with a written technical report using industry standard software. This details information such as the date, manhole numbers from & to ,size of pipe, pipe material, shape, direction, distance (m), lengths, remarks and pictures of relevant observation.

We will then take the relevant course of action to rectify these issues and make sure you have happy drains.
