What Is A CCTV Drain Survey?

A CCTV drain survey is exactly what you would imagine it is. It’s a camera, mounted to a wheel system that allows professional contractors to assess the internal condition of a property’s drainage. It’s a fantastic way to gain insight into how your drains are coping with the current strain. It also allows you to anticipate any major issues before they cause more severe problems such as flooding. If you’re interested in a CCTV drain survey for your home, read on to find answers to more common questions.

How Long Does A Drainage Survey Take?

The time it takes to complete a CCTV drain survey is completely dependent on several factors. These include:

  • Access to property
  • Length of drainage
  • Condition of pipework

There is no set way to determine a timeframe as a guarantee. However, you can safely assume for an easy-to-access small home, it would take no longer than an hour or two if everything is in good shape.

When Should I Have My Drainage Surveyed?

We advise having your drainage surveyed whenever you think there could be an issue. Whether that’s regular blockages, flooding problems or a wet patch in your garden, it’s recommended to inspect your pipework before the problem gets worse. One of the great aspects of a CCTV drain survey is the insight it provides. This insight can anticipate damage before it worsens. As a result, you could save cost on the knock-on effects of a severe drainage issue down the line.

How Often Should I Get A CCTV Drain Survey

We recommend you check your drains with a CCTV survey every 1-2 years. Quite often, there can be problems within your system that you’re completely unaware of. These kinds of drainage issues often only present themselves when there’s severe damage. It’s always more costly to fix a worse problem when it comes to your pipes. If you can get ahead of the wear and tear, then you could save yourself a lot of cost.
