Video Inspection

If you’re experiencing any recurring issues with your drains, a CCTV drain survey is the most cost-effective way to diagnose the problem. CCTV drain surveys enable PipeServ to identify and locate blockages, leaks or other damage that requires repair, without the need for digging any holes or trenches.

We then compile a CCTV drain survey report that contains the details of what the problem is, along with an image of the defect and where it’s located in the drain line. PipeServ will advise the most appropriate repair and quote to get your drains flowing freely once again. 

What type of defect can a CCTV drain survey find?

There are a number of different defects that can cause havoc with your drains. That ranges from the easy to solve, such as blockages or grease build-up, to much more serious problems such as root ingression or broken pipes. Whatever the problem, a drain survey is the quick, non-invasive and cost-effective way to detect problems, which is why it should always be the starting point for any drain repair.

CCTV drainage surveys can help PipeServ to identify the following:

  • Blockages
  • Location of drain / septic tank
  • Leaks
  • Displaced joints
  • Minor and major tree root ingress
  • Corrosion
  • Cracked and collapsed drains
  • Grease and scale build up
  • Signs of poor installation or displacement

How else can a CCTV drain survey benefit you ?

  • Homebuyer and vendor drain surveys

We conduct a survey of a property you plan to buy to make sure there aren’t any existing issues with the drains that could lead to serious problems further down the line. We also conduct CCTV drainage surveys for vendors to ensure your sale isn’t delayed by damaged drains.

  • Build over surveys

Build over surveys are carried out before and after building work. If you’re planning an extension on your existing property, the water authority will insist you carry out a CCTV drainage survey if building work is to take place over or near their pipes.

  • CCTV drain survey for insurance repair

PipeServ can carry out a CCTV drain survey and quote to submit to insurance companies for repair.
