What Is a CCTV Drain Survey?
A CCTV drain survey is a way of exploring and investigating a drainage system remotely, and it can be used to map out the drainage system or identify any blockages or damage to the drains.
It works by inserting a camera into the pipes to provide a close-up exploratory view of the drains around corners and bends to provide a full view and identify if and where there any blockages or damage within the system.
If there is damage to the pipework, such as a cracked pipe or collapsed drain, it can be used to help locate where this has occurred, so that the land directly above it can be excavated to minimise disruption and avoid exploratory digging.
What to expect from a CCTV drain survey in Surrey
A CCTV survey comes with a package of useful information for you and your insurers. We’ll provide you with the footage from the survey on a DVD or SD card for you to view yourself and pass on to your insurer to look at. Alongside this, we also provide you with a full written report which details the issue and an estimate for the work to be completed – with a site plan and photos. This provides a full package of information for your insurer if you are covered to support the work that needs to be done.
You can see an example of a CCTV survey on our website to give you a full idea of what to expect from our CCTV survey in Surrey.
The Process Following Your Drain CCTV Survey
Once you have received your CCTV survey footage, you’ll also have our diagnosis of the issue and the work required to fix it as well as an estimate for these repairs.
The repairs needed will of course depend on the issue, but we have experience in fixing a wide range of drain issues such as root infiltration, cracked pipes, collapsed drains and more. The CCTV helps us to identify exactly where in your drainage system the damage has occurred, so once we get the go ahead to fix the issue, we can get to work and excavate directly above the issue to do our repairs with minimal disruption to your land.
Where possible, we will provide patch repair or replace the section of pipework with the issue to keep costs low and disruption minimal.
