CCTV Drainage Surveys

What Are CCTV Drainage Surveys?

CCTV Drainage Surveys use a tiny specialised video camera to record and see a live view of the condition of drains and sewers on a video screen.  Our trained drainage engineers use this video feed to get a really close look at the inside state of pipes and connections.  They are trained to look for blockages, misalignments, tree root and other damage.

CCTV surveys of drains are very popular because they can inspect and record the condition of drains and sewers quickly and inexpensively.  The video file that is saved can also be reatained as a permanent drain and sewer  condition record.
