CCTV Drain Surveys in Croydon, Bromley, Surrey, Sussex, Kent and Greater London

Drain Cover Ltd utilises state-of-the-art CCTV technology to carry out drain surveys for domestic, commercial and industrial property owners. When it comes to producing clear and accurate results in inaccessible or hard-to-reach areas, our equipment, including push rod cameras and crawler systems, is second to none. Drainage issues come in multiple forms, including blockages, collapsed pipes and tree root ingress. As one of the most experienced drainage companies in the South East, we perform a comprehensive, no-dig inspection of your system to understand the full extent of the problem at hand.

Operating out of Purley, we conduct non-invasive CCTV drain surveys throughout Surrey, Sussex, Kent and London. Locally, some of our primary service locations include Bromley, Croydon and the surrounding areas. We perform surveys in this region as part of scheduled maintenance as well as in our emergency drainage services.

Due to their unseen nature, property owners often forget about their drainage systems for long periods. Of course, this changes quickly when a problem arises. To avoid invasive, disruptive repairs, not to mention the associated costs, Drain Cover Ltd strongly advises staying ahead of drainage issues by investing in regular inspections and any recommended maintenance work.

Whether it’s silt build-up, fractured pipes or blocked toilets, CCTV drain surveys produce the quickest, most effective results for identifying and resolving singular or multiple problems with drainage systems. This is especially true when compared with slower, more disruptive physical exploratory work.

Common issues found in drainage systems include:

How CCTV Drain Surveys Work

Our CCTV drain survey equipment consists of a small, full-colour digital camera attached to the end of a cable roll. This cable has the length required to extend the needed distances found in most drainage systems. We start the process of surveying by feeding the camera end of the cable into the system. By slowly extending the cable forward, our engineers guide the camera through the underground pipe network. Meanwhile, on the surface, we receive a live-feed of the results on a screen.

One of our vastly experienced engineers examines the images on a metre-by-metre basis, noting the system’s configuration, and any faults, on a log sheet. Not only does this approach give us a full overview of the entire drainage system, it also allows us to pinpoint problem areas with exact precision.

Having identified your issue, we then present our findings along with a suggested solution to resolve the issue, be it drain clearance, drain lining or any other service.

We use CCTV drain surveys to:

  • Confirm drainage defects or damage
  • Aid in the cleaning of pipelines
  • Investigate blocked toilets, pipes or drains
  • Locate problems in hard-to-reach areas
  • Inspect the structural integrity of pipes
  • Detect build-ups inside pipelines
  • Trace hidden or buried gullies and chambers
  • Create plans for existing drainage networks
  • Help in calculating the location and size of connections and branches

CCTV Drain Surveys for Home Buyers

Like all reputable drainage companies, Drain Cover Ltd also uses CCTV surveys ahead of a prospective house purchase. In fact, drain surveys have become a common stipulation for potential buyers in Bromley, Croydon and across the South East. An increasing number of banks and lenders now require a pre-purchase drain survey before issuing a mortgage.

The reason for this request lays in the sizeable investment needed to repair damaged or collapsed drainage systems. When paired with the burden of a mortgage, this further expense can leave some homeowners facing an unexpected cash shortfall.

CCTV drain surveys carried out by experienced drainage companies like ours satisfy mortgage providers and offer peace of mind for new property owners too.

Call 020 8410 9200, 07859 098 186 or 07711 083 832 to schedule a CCTV drain survey at your property in Bromley, Croydon or any of the neighbouring areas.
