What is a CCTV drain survey and Why do I need one?
Tackling drainage problems in your home can be overwhelming, especially if you have no idea where they are coming from or why you have them! Luckily, CCTV drain surveys were created to locate, diagnose, and help drainage experts fix any problems that occur in your drainage system. If you are a new homeowner or if this is your first experience with drainage issues, you may be wondering what, exactly, is a CCTV survey, and why should you get one? This article is here to help you understand everything you need to know!
What is a CCTV drain survey?
Simply put, a CCTV drain survey allows our professional drainage specialists to insert a
top-of-the-line camera into your drainage system in order to have an in-depth
look at any existing or potential problems with your drains that may be hard to
detect from the outside.
Our cameras are able to inspect your entire drainage and sewer system, right down to pipes just 70mm wide and at depths of 100 metres. This means that we can identify any underlying issues, such as drain blockages, root ingress, severe cracks, and
collapsed drains that are causing your drainage issues!
By using a high-quality 4k camera to navigate your drainage systems in search of any and all problems, our drainage experts can see the issues in real-time, assess the
level of damage, and offer expert advice on how we can effectively fix these
problems at an affordable price. Once the survey is complete, we offer you a
comprehensive report that highlights any issues we found and our recommended solutions to the problem.
If you find yourself experiencing drainage issues, Environ Drainage Services is happy to
remove any of the guesswork about what may be causing the problem with a
thorough CCTV drain survey, provided by our professional drainage engineers at
an affordable price!

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO FIND DURING A CCTV DRAIN SURVEY:
The quick answer is pretty much any kind of drainage issue! A CCTV report can detect
minor and major problems alike. Generally, we find that most CCTV surveys
uncover the following:
As a home or business owner, there are a number of reasons for why you should get a CCTV drain survey to protect and maintain your property and drains. Whether you’re
experiencing one-off or ongoing drainage issues and you’re unsure why you are
planning on buying a property, or you simply want to check the health of your drainage system, a CCTV survey is the perfect solution.
You are experiencing one-off or ongoing drainage problems
If you are experiencing the telltale signs of drain blockage, such as foul smells,
flooding, or rising water, then you should absolutely get a CCTV drain survey
as soon as possible to find the reason behind these frustrating issues!
The health of your drainage system is critical in managing any current and future drainage mishaps. While it may be tempting to call a cheap tradesman to jet blocked
drains in the hopes of clearing them quickly, this could get rid of any evidence of what the underlying problem really is. Ignoring the root of the drainage issue is a surefire way for the original problem to occur over and
Since the main objective of a CCTV drain survey is to provide a thorough and extensive
review of your drainage system, our expert drainage engineers are able to
locate and fix any irregularities that can cause a number of problems. A CCTV survey means that you are investing in a long-term, cost-effective solution instead of a temporary fix that could cost you much more in the long run!

You are planning on buying a property or moving house
Pre-purchase CCTV surveys are essential if you are looking to buy a property! A CCTV survey can shed light on any underlying drain problems that can prove to be very
costly if you move in without checking the drainage system for issues first.
A CCTV drain survey is a quick and reliable way to find out what secrets are hiding in a property’s drains before you buy it, giving you peace of mind or letting you renegotiate with video evidence on your side. A drain survey also means that you can ensure that all problems are handled before you purchase your home.

Overall Drain Maintenance
The great thing about a CCTV drain survey is the versatility it offers in regards to
identifying and fixing immediate drainage issues, as well as using it for
preventative measures to keep your drainage system healthy and well maintained.
It is an excellent idea to regularly check your drains to avoid or detect any
future problems that may not be showing any obvious signs yet!
Examples of this could be a cracked pipe that is allowing soil to enter and water to
escape. This is how what starts as a blocked drain can end in serious structural problems like subsidence or even collapse.
Another common problem we find during our CCTV drain surveys is decaying pointing in
the drain inspection chamber that sits beneath the manhole.
Issues such as these can be fixed quickly and effectively by our expert drainage engineers,
but only if you take the time to regularly check your drainage pipes, so that
small problems can be identified before they become much larger and more
