What Do We Look For in Our CCTV Drain Surveys?

247 Drainage UK is an experienced CCTV Survey Company, so if you have any drainage problems, we can help. We look for the following issues when surveying drains:

Blockages in Your Drains

Drain blockages can be a huge problem, causing your pipes to swell, burst and damage the surrounding value and structure. This can lead to flooding and waste damage. If you suspect that your drains are blocked or you have broken pipes, we can perform CCTV drainage surveys and find the root cause of the problem.

Our cameras can capture images of hazardous blockages so we can identify the exact location of any problems and recommend solutions for each issue.

Tree Root Intrusions

Tree root intrusions can be completely hidden and pose a serious threat to the structure surrounding them. As they grow, tree roots may push into walls and drainpipes, which can weaken the structural integrity and cause structural failures.

Tree root mass intrusions are generally more difficult to detect than other types of damage because they can be small and difficult to see on inspection. But our professional technicians will be able to detect this problem with our state-of-the-art CCTV system.

Cracks and Fractures

CCTV drain inspection is not complete without examining the physical condition of the drainage system. Key areas to look for any problems like longitudinal cracking, broken soakaways, fractures, displaced joints or movement of ground or infill. A crack can be caused due to physical damage or pressure on the pipe.

Have problems with your drainage and want to check what the problem is? Call 247 Drainage UK now on 01273 257 352 for a comprehensive CCTV drainage survey.

Vermin Infestations

Vermin infestations are one of the most common issues that our CCTV drain surveys come across. This is particularly the case in areas where vermin, such as rats and mice have been observed feeding on, or near, the drain. Vermin can cause extensive damage to sewers and pipes leading to water damage, sewer gas explosions and system clogging.

Loose Pipe Connections

The CCTV survey will look for any sort of loose connections or cracked stuff around your drain pipes. If you have this problem it may mean that your drains are weakened, and if they are then the chances are that they will collapse under pressure.
