We use CCTV cameras to reach deep into drains and investigate their condition. CCTV drain surveys are the ideal way to identify blocked, faulty and damaged pipes in drains and sewers.
CCTV drain surveys are also highly recommended if you are purchasing a property, so that you can get a picture of the state of the drainage system. CCTV surveys are also vitally important prior to building or extending a property to ensure there is no risk of disrupting existing pipework.
We insert the camera into the drain and use a monitor to watch and record as it travels through the drain, sending high-definition images to our engineer who can pick up defects and highlight any potential issues.
We can supply clients with video footage of their drains, along with a written report about any defects if required, for insurance or mortgage companies and other purposes – including preparing an estimate for repairs.
Here at Simpsons Drainage Ltd we believe it is vital to keep investing in the latest technology and equipment to ensure our business is ahead of the rest. This is particularly important when it comes to CCTV drain surveys.
Our state-of-the art remote controlled camera units provide extremely detailed and clear live images of the interior of pipes of all sizes, even in awkward situations, and our staff have the training and experience to use the technology to best effect.
CCTV drain cameras are engineered to operate under flowing water and in tight spaces, positioned by flexible rods which push the cameras along pipes, or remote operated crawlers, to get the best visual access.
Being able to use CCTV camera equipment to survey and inspect drains means we can identify problems and plan solutions without having to resort to excavation in most cases, meaning that disruption is kept to a minimum.
CCTV drainage surveys play a key role in the mapping of drains and sewers in cases where underground infrastructure needs to be identified before a building project can start on a site. Whether it’s a new build or an extension, commercial or industrial, it is vital to know where drain pipes and other related structures are positioned before work starts.
CCTV surveys are also used to check the functioning of newly installed drains to make sure that they are working properly.
