When to Get a Drain Survey
If you can smell foul odours, you have a blocked sink, flooded dishwasher or washing machine; it’s time to get a drain survey to identify the cause. A drain camera survey is an effective way to diagnose the problem without the need to dig holes or trenches. Our drainage engineers can send a state of the art CCTV drain inspection camera into your drainage system to identify and locate blockages, leaks or spot if a collapsed drain repair is required. Using a drain camera survey, we will detail what the problem is, its cause, and where it’s located in the drain.
Homebuyer and Vendor Drain Surveys
Drain camera surveys are recommended for homebuyers and vendors to make sure there aren’t any existing drainage issues that could cause serious problems further down the line, including cracked, leaky or faulty drains. For new homebuyers, our CCTV camera survey service is well worth booking in to uncover any potential problem.
Pre-tenancy Drain Surveys
It is the responsibility of landlords to maintain the condition of rental properties for their tenants. This involves making sure the drains, waste pipes and sewers are in good condition. A pre-tenancy drain survey will allow you to inspect the drainage system in a non-invasive way. A drain camera service is also useful for keeping a record of any damage that may have been caused by tenants.
Build Over CCTV Surveys
If you are building an extension to your property, your local water authority will need to know about it. They will require information including the location, measurements and condition of all drainage within 3m of the area. A build over CCTV drain inspection survey will provide this information and should be carried out before and after building work.
