Do I need a CCTV drain survey?

Nothing gets to the root of your drains’ health better than a CCTV drain survey.

By feeding state-of-the-art cameras deep into your drainage system, you can get valuable footage and images that show the state of your drains, along with any current or evolving problems and their precise pinpoint location.

There are a couple of situations where a CCTV drain survey is especially advised – and in this article, we’ll outline exactly what a drain survey is and some instances when you’ll need to get one.

What is a CCTV drain survey?

A CCTV drain survey uses cameras and flexible rods to navigate them through your drainage system, either by hand or using a machine. The camera will collect images and footage as it moves along, allowing the operator to spot any problems and to establish their exact location.

Problems that could be identified may include:

  • Pests
  • Cracks and holes
  • Root ingress
  • Blockages
  • Collapsed pipes

Surveys can also provide an in-depth overview of your drains’ health. The professional carrying out the drain survey will suggest solutions for any identified issues so they can be quickly resolved.

Do I need a CCTV drain survey?

It’s recommended you get a drain survey if you’re doing any of the following three things:

  • Buying a new home: House viewings only cover the visible parts of a property – and without a drain survey, it’s impossible to know the health of a drainage system before you buy. So you can make an informed choice, you may wish to ask for a drainage survey to be carried out so you can understand all the ins and outs of a home before you sign on the dotted line. A professional drainage expert, such as MPH Drain Services, will conduct this survey and give experienced advice based on the findings.
  • Getting insurance: Prior to dealing with a claim, the insurance company may ask you for evidence – and a CCTV drain survey gives you the hard proof you need, including footage, high-quality images and a report directly from a drainage specialist. This is especially useful if you carried out a CCTV drainage survey just before you bought a property, as you can clearly show the difference between the status of drain health.
  • Diagnosing problems: If your drains are smelly or getting backed up, you’ll want to know what the problem is and exactly where it’s located. A drain survey can give you this high level of accuracy, along with a professional opinion on how best to resolve the issue once it’s been identified. This can not only resolve disruptive issues that are impacting your day-to-day life, but they can also stop smaller problems in their tracks and prevent them from becoming more serious in the future.
