At SOS we offer drainage and pipe CCTV surveys.

What is a CCTV drain survey?

A drain survey is an in-depth inspection of your drainage system using high-definition CCTV cameras which are inserted into your drains or pipework. The camera will send a live feed back to the engineer and supply a clear view and identify any issues.

Why and when would I need a survey?

CCTV surveys are an indispensable tool in a number of situations. The survey will generate a precise review of the current condition of the property’s drainage system and will provide an overview of any necessary repairs in the future.

A survey can find the root cause of a problem, so they are essential if you are experiencing drain troubles but have no idea why.

What will a survey find?

Drain surveys are designed to deliver an extensive, thorough review of your drainage system. They can help to identify major and minor issues. From structural damage, blockages to small leaks, whatever the problem with your drains, a CCTV survey should be able to identify and locate it. A CCTV drain survey can help to identify:

  • Collapsed drains

  • Tree root ingress

  • Blockages

  • Causes and extent of leaks/bursts in pipes

  • Corrosion and wear and tear

  • Animal intrusion

  • Evidence of displacement or poor installation

A drain survey has many advantages, but perhaps the most important is that it allows you to respond to existing issues and plan ahead to prevent future ones. In the long term, this helps to save you money – and frustration.
