Frequently Asked Questions
What is a CCTV drain survey?
A CCTV drain survey is an in-depth inspection of the condition of drainage systems. A high-tech camera records video footage inside the drain and captures useful information that drainage engineers can use to identify any issues that might be present – be it blockages in pipes or sewers.
How does a CCTV drain survey work?
The way CCTV drain surveys work is simple. The first thing you’ll need to do is arrange a survey.
An engineer will come and visit you to discuss the drainage issue in further detail before setting up survey equipment (waterproof cameras, access rods, crawlers and sonar units). They will then gain access to your drains and insert the CCTV camera – providing a real-time view of your drains so they can inspect the condition of your drains and identify blockages or damage.
The findings from the drain survey in London will then be reported back to you and repair or cleaning recommendations will be provided (if required).
