Drain Mapping Experts

The mapping of drains and sewers forms part of the required work before a building project can proceed. Whether the building is new or on an existing site, a map of the drainage system is a key component of understanding the infrastructure. Drain Doctor’s CCTV drainage surveys help piece together accurate information to prevent any harm coming to the existing drainage system.

How Does Drain Mapping Work?

CCTV drainage surveys use innovative technology as an unobtrusive and accurate way to help map drainage and sewage systems. Our expert team deliver complete plans of drains and sewage systems that detail drain runs, manholes, and the water flow direction. This information is used widely in construction by both private and public sector clients.

We will conduct drain jetting to help capture the best possible insight of the drainage system and the report produced will give a detailed overview of the drainage and sewage system mapping.

Features of Our Drain Mapping Surveys:

  • Understanding Drainage Network Functions
  • Determining the Location of Sewers
  • Up to Date & Accurate Drain Mapping
  • Pollution Guidelines
  • Site Surveys
  • Construction Information
  • Knowing How Your Drainage Works

Drain mapping is a useful service for private and commercial clients to gather information about the state of drainage in the surrounding area. Find out where the boundaries lie, who has responsibility for the infrastructure and pinpoint any sewage, drainage or pipes ahead of planning or starting building work.


Importance of Drain Mapping

Before going ahead with any building work, it is important to know exactly where the nearby drains and sewers are positioned and who is responsible for them. Water authority drainage systems such as sewers, pipes and surface water are found on private properties and in gardens, but it is the responsibility of the property owner to inspect the drainage infrastructure before any building work or property extensions. Our drain maps allow architects, builders, surveyors and homeowners to determine whether a ‘build over’ agreement is required or not.

How Much Does Drainage Mapping Cost?

Drain Doctor offers a fixed price drain mapping and pipe location service. A local engineer will visit the property to assess the location and deliver a free no-obligation quote.

Our drain mapping service is professional and provides critical information about the condition and location of underground pipework, which is essential for planning and carrying out construction work. A local fully-equipped engineer will arrive on-site to conduct the survey.

Paul P

The Drain Doctor operative, Dan Hayler was extremely good. He took time to explain the situation and did a fantastic job of solving our problem. He is knowledgeable and courteous. I would highly recommend him and this company. Thank you for an excellent service.

Mandy Stuttard

Seriously brilliant company. Anna was so helpful and great on the phone in the booking. Clear job pricing, rather than hourly charges. We have had two other plumbers out to solve this issue without success. They used a camera to find the blockage which was a ceramic piece from previous building work. Can't recommend them enough!

Kathy Pavid

Very pleased with Drain Doctor and operator Dan. Had concerns about partial sewer main blockage and possible sewer pipe misalignment. Camera survey carried out first to identify issues, then complete high pressure clean, then follow up camera survey. First class professional and friendly service - would most certainly use again.

Roy Tubbs

Great service from Anna and her team. Dan carried out the work needed and was polite, friendly and explained what needed to be done.

Tracey Ridgers

Dan turned up within an hour even though it wasn't an emergency. He was professional and very helpful and even identified a hidden chamber that was also blocked. Great quality for a very reasonable price.

Nick Armitage

Called this morning for plumbing emergency. Attended within half an hour and problem fixed. Would highly recommend.

Katie Crawford

Can't recommend Graham Forbes and Drain Doctor enough! 3 hours graft and skilled use of some pretty scary high pressure equipment, camera tech, to break a fiendishly located fat and soap berg in the corner of our kitchen pipe work.

Andy & Katy Travers

Really quick service, called on a Sunday morning, with us within an hour with the job done quickly. I hope not to need my drains sorted again, but if I do, I'll be calling Scott!
