By using CCTV cameras, drainage engineers will be able to inspect your drains and get footage from inside the pipes. This can reveal a wide number of findings, such as:

  • Blockages caused by a variety of inappropriate items being disposed of through toilets and sinks, or by leaves and other external substances.

  • Cracked pipes which can be the result of wear and tear or by a fault somewhere.

  • Rodents who may be inhabiting the pipework and pose a risk to human health.

  • Infestations such as insects breeding with the pipework.

  • Gaps in the pipework, similar to cracked pipes, which can be caused by use over time.

Why should I get my drains surveyed?

All of the findings above can lead to serious issues for the property and those who dwell inside. A CCTV drain survey in London from Drainsmart will be able to detect these things and then proper solutions can be found to address them. If left untreated, these problems are likely to get worse, leading to more substantial fixes being needed - which are often more time-consuming and expensive.

A CCTV drain survey may also mean less excavating is needed should the problem only being in the earlier stages. For example, if you are experiencing cracked pipes, we may be able to perform what’s called drain sleeving, which will restore the pipes to being fully operational, avoiding the need to replace the whole system. Please note: this may not always be possible. The experienced Drainsmart engineers will be able to discuss with you any issues found in your CCTV drain survey and the solutions available to you.
