When Should You Get A CCTV Drain Survey?

A CCTV Drain Survey is the most cost-effective way to diagnose problems in your drainage system. Using state-of-the-art camera technology, we can investigate the inside of your drains deep below the ground, which saves the expense and intrusion of digging up the pipes.

Each drain survey comes with a report that details any problems found, what the cause is, and exactly where it is located. We will then offer a range of solutions for the problem to help get your drain flowing freely once again.

Here are three times when it is important to get a CCTV Drain Survey:

You’re Moving to a New House

If you’re buying a new home, you instinctively check the house for signs of damage and identify how much it will cost to repair and who is responsible for getting the damage removed. Your new drains should be no different. A blocked drain or broken pipe may not immediately flag as a problem, not even to the current homeowner, but six months into your new home you could face a serious drainage emergency. Though the problem may have been caused by the previous tenant, you must foot the entire repair and replace bill.

With a CCTV Drain Survey, you will know of any existing problems ahead of time and potentially save yourselves hundreds of pounds.

Can’t Identify The Blockage

Whenever you experience a blocked drain you may feel inclined to try and unclog it yourself or pour chemicals down the drain to help clear it. Which may work… for now. The problem is when you unclog a drain you may have simply dislodged it and not resolved the issue, and chemicals stick to the walls of the pipe which in turn can attract other debris which causes another blockage.

A CCTV Drain Survey will efficiently identify the blockage and our report will suggest the best method for unblocking so that the problem is eradicated and not delayed.

Regular Maintenance

Checking your drains only when you have a problem is not a cost-effective way of dealing with your drainage. Instead, consider getting a routine visit from your local Drain Doctor team to assess your drains and identify any issues with your drains. Finding these issues early can save you hundreds of pounds in repair bills and minimise the risk of long-term damage to your property.
