What is a CCTV Drain Survey?

A CCTV drain survey is a video inspection with a drain camera of the interiors of your pipelines and drains. Our CCTV drain surveys cover domestic residential properties, commercial properties, industrial units, care homes, schools, colleges and general infrastructure.

Minimal Disruption

The difficulty of managing drainage systems is that problems are not visible until the signs of damage become apparent above ground, at which point more damage can occur and increase health hazards. A CCTV drain survey can allow us to check the pipe condition and is a cost-effective way of inspecting your drains with minimal disruption to your home or workplace

Using a drain camera for a CCTV drain survey can identify problems in your drainage system like collapsed drains, cracked drains, root penetration or pest infestation, without the need for digging a trench to inspect your drain.  A remote control wheel mounted camera will enter your drainage system to inspect the area and can survey a variety of drain sizes.

Fault Identification

Identifying potential issues early on can prevent small drainage problems developing into major issues.  From the camera images our engineer will be able to pinpoint the cause of your problem and where it’s located, or alert you to any minor drainage problems that could develop into bigger problems over time like debris build up or hairline cracks.  Alton Pump Services can then recommend the most appropriate course of action which can range from patch repair, drain lining, drain jetting, or drain replacement.

Drain Mapping

We use the latest technology to map your drains within your drainage system.  If no inspection chambers are visible this can be the best option to locate your drains. Once we have mapped your drains with our drain camera you can use this plan to aid future drain management or the location of building works .

Home Buyers Drain Survey

An often overlooked survey when buying a new home. Buyers tend to focus on the location and size of the home, paying particular attention to the mandatory surveys of a house purchase incorporating the roof, walls and energy efficiency of the building.  The drain survey is overlooked firstly because potential issues are below ground and not immediately visible and secondly because a house surveyor often lacks the equipment and expertise to asses the drainage system.

A Home Buyers Drain Survey can highlight potential issues which could become costly in the future for the new homeowner and could be avoided with a thorough appraisal of the drainage system through a Home Buyers Drain survey.
