    What is a CCTV Survey for?


    Drains, by their very nature of being underground, are subjected to a number of stresses over the years.  The ground can move dramatically, depending on how wet or dry it is.  Shrub or tree roots have to grow around the pipes.  Subsidence can also add high additional weight over the pipes. 

    Traditional Salt Glazed sewer pipes will start to breakdown after a while and these stresses can start to cause leaking at the joints, cracking along the pipes or at worst complete collapse. Leaky soil pipes are not only a potential health hazard but can also wash away the foundations of a property causing subsidence. Damaged pipes can cause blockages.

    When buying a property, often the mortgage lender will want assurance that the pipes are in good order. How can this be done, without having to expose the pipes? Our Close Circuit Television (CCTV) surveys are ideal for this purpose. This is a totally non-invasive process in which we insert a ‘rod’ with a camera attached at one end, connected to a monitor and recording system at the other end. If a problem is detected, an on-screen meter counter can determine the exact position.


    If a repair to the pipe is necessary, we specialise in a number of options, including replacing the broken section by excavation, or - the new way - relining the pipe from within with a Glass reinforced plastic. This is particularly useful where pipes are inaccessible, such as under buildings. (see Drain Repair)

    After a repair has been carried out a further CCTV survey will check to make sure that water is free flowing without any restrictions.

    How it works:

    CCTV inspection can locate a number of reasons that causes pipe failure including leaking and open joints, root intrusion, contamination and cracks

    Pipe can then be fixed with an appropriate method

    Once fixed the pipe can be checked with another CCTV inspection
