CCTV Drain Surveys
Businesses large and small in both the private and public sector can now benefit from CCTV survey technology. This is being offered to you to detect blockages and identifying their serviceability.
Only the best technology is utilised by Drainfix when surveying to discover structural drainage concerns, investigating causes of blockages and tracing drainage runs from as little as 40mm to a maximum 1000mm diameter. When tracing maximum diameter pipes the use of specialised Crawler Camera Units are deployed.
The results of completed surveys are collated and translated into a detailed report specifying drainage layout plans as well as a survey coding report and full recommendations, with estimate costs for repairs. Along with the report details you will receive your own copy of all CCTV footage supplied on a choice of DVD or video for you to view at your leisure.
Drainfix also have a fleet of vans, fitted with specialised jetting equipment, ready to pre-clean all pipes in preparation for any surveys.
For home buyers CCTV surveys are a must, as more and more mortgage lenders recognise the benefits of the superior technology. They are now advising lenders to take advantage of this option when having a structural survey carried out on the property they are buying. For a small additional cost your drains can also be surveyed, buying peace of mind and avoiding a costly repair bill later.

A drain survey is the service or process used to look into the structural and functional integrity of a drain, sewer or pipeline to identify and recognise any possible or existing problems in the drain. For example, a drain survey can be used to identify and report potential and present structural problems like a fracture in the pipe or a collapsed pipe, a dodgy joint or a leak.
CCTV surveys use the technology of camera footage to investigate the drain, sewer or pipeline accurately and efficiently. A CCTV drain survey is the only way to accurately assess a drain, sewer or pipeline in detail. DrainFix Services Limited uses the best technology to survey drains and discover any structural drainage concerns.
If you suspect a blockage in your drainage system or any damage in your drainage system’s structure, a drain CCTV survey will be able to locate the source of the damage and let the surveyor know the extent of the damage. From the CCTV footage, they will be able to complete a drain survey to report what the damage is (if there is any damage), where the damage is and what will need to be done to fix and repair it. A CCTV drain survey service will also be able to let the drainage survey company know what materials are needed to repair the damage or replace the faulty parts.
A drain CCTV survey has many benefits including:
Fast, Accurate Analysis – When there is a problem with your drains, the best thing is to identify it as soon as possible so it can be repaired immediately. This is why at DrainFix Services Limited; we use CCTV technology to survey drains as it speeds up the process considerably. As our cameras are lowered into the rain, the drain plumber can see everything in real time on a TV screen.
Minimal Disruption – A CCTV survey causes minimal disruption to the area around the drain. Because there is no guess work involved, any digging up needed to be done will only be in the affected area. At DrainFix Services Limited all the work is done by the camera. No large costly and disruptive excavations needed.
Cost Effective Solution – Time is money, both in the hands of the drain plumber and the client, therefore we make it a priority to keep our services cost effective. Due to a CCTV drain survey’s precision and accuracy, it takes away any unnecessary costs.
