As an experienced London drainage company, our engineers have visited many properties over the years and we always aim to keep improving our service. We know that we are only as good as our last job, which is why we invest into our company and ensure that the technology and methods we use benefit our customers and that the work gets done properly.
An example of this is our drain surveys.
One of our more popular drainage services, we use these to see what is happening in underground pipework at a property. This can be for homeowners looking to buy a new property, construction companies, landlords, and more. Other drainage companies in London will also offer this service but not many will include detailed computerised diagrams which show the drainage layout, including where there are manholes and gullies.
How does this differ to our competitors? Many drainage companies still rely on hand-drawn versions which can be inaccurate and not a true representation of the system within a building.
We also provide Drainsmart customers with a copy of the footage if requested, which can be used for reference.
Would a CCTV drain survey suit my property?
For the majority of properties, our standard price for domestic houses is £175 +VAT. This allows for three manholes. Should further manholes need to be inspected we can discuss that with you and provide a detailed costing. The best way to check is to get in touch with our friendly team.
You can contact us here at Drainsmart using the contact form at the bottom of this page, or by giving us a call 24/7. Our number is 0800 740 80 40.
What happens after the CCTV drain survey?
The footage may show everything is sound and no further action needs to be taken. Or, if the footage comes back with any problems identified, the Drainsmart engineers will be able to suggest solutions.
Typical problems found during a CCTV camera inspection of your drains could be gaps in the pipework or breakages, blockages caused by objects, infestations such as rats or other creatures. It is essential to locate any issues such as these as soon as possible. The longer they are left untreated, the harder to fix (and more expensive) they become.
