Briefly, a CCTV drain survey is a video camera attached to a recording device that is pulled through a pipe or a drainage channel. It records everything on video, which can be replayed on a computer so that we can see and understand what it shows us. A CCTV drain survey is the best way to see if there are any issues with the drains in your home. It will give you a clear idea of what work needs to be done and how much it will cost. Having clear video footage of drains and pipes will prevent any nasty surprises when you call in professionals, and it may even save you money by not needing to have a professional come view a problem that doesn’t exist.

If you own or manage a property, it’s likely that you have heard of CCTV drain surveys. However, there are many misconceptions surrounding these tests, and many property owners don’t realize that they can benefit from an inspection of this kind. A CCTV drain survey is a visual inspection and assessment of drains in a building. It allows drainage engineers to examine the interior of the drain, as well as any defects or obstructions that might be causing problems with the flow of water and causing the clogging of drains. When performing a CCTV drain survey, drainage engineers use special equipment to record images from inside the drains, allowing them to fully inspect their entire length. At the end of the inspection, the results are compiled into a comprehensive report that details any problems that were found.

CCTV drain surveys are useful for a number of reasons. For example, they can help identify potential issues with drains before they become bigger problems for property owners. They can also help engineers decide whether or not it would be better to repair or replace certain parts of the drains—they may be able to recommend ways to solve any issues that are discovered during an inspection, but if those repairs would cost more than replacing the parts with new ones, they will let you know and explain issues.

The drain survey involves sending a CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) camera down the drain to inspect it. This is used to identify any damages or defects in the pipe. The inspection should be done in order to avoid any further damage caused by cracks within the pipe.

The CCTV camera can easily identify the type of soil or ground condition below through which the pipe is passing, it also helps identify if there are any damages or leakage in the pipe itself. This will help in preventing wastage of water and also avoids floods if any.

How do CCTV drain surveys work? It all starts with the installation of a CCTV drain survey camera. This camera is installed in a manhole or a storm drain and allows the CCTV drain surveyor to observe any defects in the drain system. Next, we send a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) into your drains. The ROV is equipped with a video camera as well as various sensors that measure sound, temperature, and gas levels. This data is transmitted back to the CCTV drain surveyor, who can use it to make a diagnosis. If the problem can’t be found visually, we might need to send an industrial endoscope down the line. An endoscope is an optical device that’s threaded down through the pipes so that we can see what’s going on inside them. It may seem like a lot of effort for something you don’t think about unless it’s causing problems, but you never know when it could come in handy!

FAQ) Why do building drains need CCTV inspection?

If they are not draining easily, something is wrong down there. Could be roots, broken pipe, water draining through a broken pipe right away somewhere else!

A cctv camera clearly shows what’s going on, and a plumber can pinpoint where that problem is. Then he can dig exactly down to the problem and repair it instead of bringing in a backhoe and digging up your entire yard.

Unless you prefer that?
