London Drainage Facilities’ CCTV drain surveys provide vital answers for homeowners and firms struggling to identify the source of a blockage. LONDON, ENGLAND, NOVEMBER 2014 London Drainage Facilities offers comprehensive CCTV surveys that can be used to pinpoint the exact location of a blockage. Once the problem has been detected, the London Drainage Facilities (LDF) team take the appropriate action to stop this blockage from occurring time and time again. This innovative CCTV technology allows specialists to investigate complex drainage systems, even those that include 45 degree bends and congested gullies. Major structural complications are assessed by a member of the technical team using video footage. The technician will then suggest and implement the most suitable procedure in order to correct the problem as quickly as possible and prevent future issues. Though there are plenty of drainage contractors offering these highly efficient and effective CCTV surveys in the capital, Danny Fuller, LDF’s Managing Director, believes that his company offers the best deal in the region. “Clients will find it difficult to experience a more robust approach towards CCTV surveillance elsewhere in the city,” he says. “Aside from employing some of the most skilled technicians in the UK, we keep our services competitive, ensuring that the costs involved in the project remain as low and as transparent as possible.” Customers that request a CCTV survey from London Drainage Facilities can expect a detailed written report, along with an analytical site plan and a DVD revealing what the CCTV has captured in full. Defects, blockages and flaws will be recorded in the report using still images and accompanied by an estimate. Examples of standard CCTV survey reports can be found online and are provided to give potential clients a strong idea of what they can expect to receive from the firm.

As winter is fast approaching again (much to our dismay!) we are soon going to be facing the many challenges that this soggy, cold and icy season brings to the UK. One of these challenges is the risk of flooding, which seems to be occurring increasingly over time. Flooding is not something to take lightly - it ruins businesses, destroys homes and turns the lives of the people that live and work within them completely upside down. Last winter, the UK faced a series of major storms and some of the heaviest rainfall on record. This tested our defences against what seemed to be a furious and relentless Mother Nature yet sadly proved that our country wasn’t prepared for the extent of the damage and that our nation’s resilience needs to be improved dramatically if we have any chance of reducing the damage caused by flooding in the winter months. The Government’s Get Ready for Winter Initiative People that reside in flood-prone areas can try to prepare themselves for the wet winter ahead. If this sounds you like you, we’d recommend making yourself aware of the government’s ‘Get Ready for Winter’ initiative, which is hosted by the Met Office and offers advice and useful information to people across the UK. You can sign up to the Met Office National Severe Weather Warning Service and receive alerts as to which part of the country is under threat of flooding or storms. Sewer Flooding Sewers throughout the UK flood due to a whole variety of reasons, from climate change to pressure on sewer networks caused by lack of natural drainage. One of the common causes of flooded sewers is blockages that are the result of people placing unsuitable items down drains. These unsuitable items come in the form of sanitary towels, tampons, wet wipes and
