CCTV Drain Surveys explained
When was the last time you thought about your sewers and drains? Maybe never up until now. Good news, this is not uncommon. Many customers call Drain Smart because they suspect something is happening with their drains, because of a problem with an odour appearing from their drains, man hole, bathroom or kitchen. The truth is that a blockage is generally just an inconvenience – a messy, smelly emergency issue and once dealt with is the end of the story.
Why is a CCTV Survey required?
Being told your property has a damaged and leaking drain is only half the problem Drain Smart frequently inform residents of. The good news is that without CCTV drain survey, the problem encountered, could of resulted in something far more serious if left undiscovered, as it can lead to subsidence and movement of a building.
“According to a leading specialist buildings insurer, approximately 25% of subsidence claims are directly related to defective drainage which has eroded the soil below the foundations causing the building to drop.”
With the use of CCTV drain survey developments, has allowed Drain Smart to carry out blockage investigations in even the smallest piping systems, manholes and some of the London’s oldest drainage systems. With the footage and data received, we can accurately calculate the cost and time it will take to rectify the problem and help councils and residents to make arrangements to let us implement new drains or relining where necessary.
What can you expect from a Drain Survey service?
The video footage captured during our CCTV camera inspection is recorded on to a DVD or hard drive where we analyse the imagery for closer inspection. A report will then be compiled including a computerised drawing showing the drainage layout where a written report will demonstrate a schedule of remedial works should any defects be discovered.
Home Buyers Drain Survey
If you are considering, or currently in the process of buying a new home – you should always consider a home buyers drain survey. These surveys will inspect the drainage systems and make sure there are no current or potential issues with your drainage system.
If you disregard a home buyers survey and there is pre-existing drainage issues, you may find it hard to negotiate with an insurer or the previous home owner. This means you may be liable for the damages to your property.
A home buyer drain system can locate and identify any drainage issues from small blockages to extensive problems. This is done by inserting a small camera to record the drainage systems. The recordings will be stored and analysed by our professionals who will provide you with a full report.
