CCTV Surveys



Inspecting the condition of the drainage system at your home or business premises can be a challenge- that is why CCTV Surveys are so useful.

Checking installations like plumbing and electrical wiring is easy, because all the infrastructure for these services is above ground. But when drains become blocked or damaged, the first indication to the occupier may be pools of water within your property, or unpleasant smells with no obvious source.

Fortunately, the drainage experts at Waterways Drainage have a solution. By performing a CCTV drain survey our technicians can inspect the network of pipes from a convenient access point and find the problem. By feeding a camera into the drains, we can explore wide and narrow pipes looking for such issues as blockages, cracks, intruding tree roots, rodent infestations – in fact, any obstacle which may cause drain problems. We can then quickly devise a plan of action.

Thanks to these CCTV surveys our customers can have their drains repaired quickly and efficiently, and at much less expense than would have been the case previously.

What is a CCTV survey?

A CCTV survey is where we insert a mini digital video camera into your drainage system, be it foul or surface and push or drive it through the pipe. 

Why would I need a CCTV survey?

  • You are buying a new home

  • You are building an extension

  • Problems with vermin infestation

  • You have surface flooding

  • Persistent drain problems

  • Your property has subsidence

What happens after the CCTV survey is completed?

Upon completion of the survey we can produce a detailed computerised report using iTouch, so we can present the data super fast and all observations collected by the CCTV Operator are highlighted, logged, verified and with the customer within hours.

This report can be viewed in an online portal and downloaded on PDF with a plan that is marked up and corresponds to the report to allow  for easy reference. The written report can also be supplied electronically to allow for filing on asset register systems, email between colleagues, etc.
