Drain Excavation for Local London Council

We recently attended a property in London suffering from numerous and reoccurring drainage issues, we were contacted by the local council to help diagnose the problem and offer a solution. Like most of our drainage jobs, we began by carrying out a CCTV survey to investigate the drains and see what the issue was. We identified a section of the drainage system that had collapsed, this meant that a drain excavation would be needed.

By performing a CCTV survey, we could accurately pinpoint the area we needed to dig down to reach the collapsed pipework. This ensures we work efficiently, tidily, and effectively.

Symptoms of a collapsed drain

If you start to notice any of these signs, you may have a collapsed drain, it is best to request a CCTV drain survey from a professional drainage and plumbing company. It is far quicker to diagnose an issue from above the ground using state-of-the-art technology than it is to excavate the site.
