When it’s not easy to see the blockage, we’ll take a look with CCTV
When the cause of a blockage cannot be remedied with high pressure jetting or plunging, we can use a CCTV camera inserted into the pipes to track the problem area(s). This allows us to see exactly what the problem is and extent of the damage, and suggest remedial work and estimated cost.
It is also recommended that you undertake a CCTV camera survey in a home that you are intending to purchase. This will give you advanced knowledge of the condition of the pipes and the ability is able to use this when negotiating the purchase price.

Findings from a CCTV Survey
Damaged or broke pipe – pressure from areas above the pipes such as heavy vehicles driving above can cause cracks and fractures in the pipes. If untreated, this will cause content from the pipe to leak into the soil surrounding the pipework, and will eventually lead to further damage, loose soil or worse, collapsed drain pipes.
Collapsed drains – this can be caused by untreated underlying problems such as cracks or fractures. Badly built drains will also lead to collapsed drains and causes the blockage to occur.
Tree roots – faults in pipes such as cracks and opened joints are potential entrances for tree roots seeking moisture. Once the tree roots have found their way into the drainage system, it will obstruct flow moving downstream to the manhole and eventually cause a blockage. If untreated, blockages are more likely to happen with more frequency.

What are the benefits of CCTV Survey Reports
ISO Accreditation – companies applying to be ISO compliant must adhere to strict guidelines. Our survey reports will pinpoint any underlying problems in the pipe within the vicinity and suggest immediate possible remedial works.
Buying New Property – a CCTV survey will give you a clearer picture of drainage work within the property. This can be use as negotiating tool on the property purchase price
Peace of Mind – a CCTV survey can spot issues before they develop into more serious problems. The sooner these are spotted and repair taken place, the more cost efficient it will be in the long run.
