CCTV Drainage Surveys

By Coody3 | September 9, 2019

Why Carry Out CCTV Drain Surveys?

CCTV technology has become instrumental in the modern-day world and is currently being in various applications, including security and plumbing.

The technology is used in examining sewers, drains, and even pipelines. It often involves the use of state-of-the-art cameras and relevant software technology to go with it to deliver effective drainage system surveys and inspections, including useful comprehensive reports.

Conducting a drain survey helps to identify and alert you to any potential issues that may compromise the integrity of your drainage system. Such issues may include cracks and blockages. Identifying potential and existing problems could help you to avoid a potential drainage disaster. CCTV drain surveys can be great for residential, commercial, or even industrial property.

What CCTV Drain Surveys Are Used For

The process involves examining your drainage system’s condition remotely using a camera that is capable of recording video footage and capturing any other useful piece of information you may use to improve the condition of your drainage system.

This technology continues to play a critical role in conducting surveys and inspections to help examine underground drains and sewers. It is often preferred because it is fast, safe, and cost-effective. The same technology can be used to conduct surveys above ground.


The remote access technology allows the safe gathering of data without subjecting operatives to confined entries that could be potentially hazardous. These surveys are also crucial in planning preventive maintenance and programs.

This allows asset owners to control costs and prevent potentially damaging drain failures. If you are a homeowner and would like to investigate sewer and drain issues, such as incidences of pollution, poor fluid flow rates, and blockages, CCTV drain surveys can come in handy even for knowing whether you need drain lining or something else.

They are especially useful in construction projects because they help in identifying drain connectivity, thereby allowing contractors to plan and design reliable drainage systems that are up to standards or meet regulatory requirements.

CCTV surveys can also be useful in conducting pre-adoption condition inspections.

This allows building contractors to state or condition of drainage systems before they hand them over clients. Building contractors have also used them to support planned work when conducting pipe repairs, replacement, or rehabilitation.

Clearly, CCTV surveys are useful in a wide range of situations.

If you are thinking about moving to or purchasing a new house, it is advisable to have sewer and drain inspections carried out to ensure you are getting a good deal and won’t have to spend some extra pounds to repair or replace the drain.
