The Benefits & Applications of CCTV Drain Surveys

The Benefits & Applications of CCTV Drain Surveys

A CCTV drain survey will reveal the exact drainage problem. With this technique, surveyors can see with ease, the cause of a problem inside the drainage, pipes, and more, with the help of inspection cameras attached. A CCTV survey method is relatively affordable, producing detailed and accurate results compared to having a plumber to diagnose a drainage problem. The survey method is also faster in determining the drainage problem using an electronic device that captures data through pipes and drains, instead of a plumber figuring out what the problem could be.

What is a CCTV Drain survey?

A CCTV drain survey is an extensive process of examining the full condition of drainage systems remotely with the help of a camera system, recording the video footage and capturing other important data as well. The technology is an essential tool that helps inspect and survey underground drains, culverts, sewers and associated drainage assets quickly, safely, and cost-effectively. The methods and equipment utilised in conducting the CCTV drainage surveys can also be used to survey above ground pipes, such as soil stacks, rainwater downpipes, industrial pipes storage tanks as well as ducting systems. Our measured surveyors use the captured images to help them understand the drainage issue, and generate the drainage information in a report format, as well as the recommendations to correct the problem.

What are the Benefits of a CCTV Drain Survey?

  1. Minimum Disruption: The method involves less disruption compared to what would usually be caused by digging up land or excavating the drains. The camera system is simply placed down the drain, allowing our technicians to identify any damage or drainage problems from live feedback.
  2. Speedy Diagnosis: The live feedback from the CCTV camera enables direct diagnosis of any issues without delays, allowing them to formulate a lasting solution. The engineers are also able to provide an advice for an instant remedy.
  3. Accuracy: The live feedback enables our engineers and technicians to see clearly where the issue is located within the drainage system. The technique identifies the exact location of the damage or issues in a fast and precise fashion, allowing the discovery of even the smallest of issues before they escalate.
  4. CCTV drainage survey allows remote and safe capturing of data. The operatives do not have to enter into confined spaces which may be potentially risky.

The drainage survey can investigate blockages, drain, poor flow as well as all pollution problems in a drainage system.
