London Property & Home Buyer CCTV Drain Surveys

With the increase in demand for good stock housing in London, more and more surveyors are requesting CCTV surveys to ensure the drainage system is up to scratch, prior to house purchases. 

Our detailed assessments include full written reports showing you the condition and highlighting any potential problems the property’s drainage may have.

Our CCTV Drain Survey Service

The london drainage network is mostly victorian which due to age and design can cause a number of issues that need a closer inspection. Most houses still have clay pipes which don’t age well. Even the slightest amount of movement in the ground can cause these clay pipes to fracture causing problems such as root intrusion.

Our CCTV Drain survey will assess your entire drainage system to find out it’s condition, tell you about any potential faults and making recomendations for improvement works. This will be explained to you in person as well as in a fully detailed written report. With our unobtrusive camera systems and experience, we guarantee that this service will be quick and hassle free.

What are the surveys used for?

The london drainage network is mostly victorian which due to age and design can cause a number of issues that need a closer inspection. Whilst commercial drains in London are usually more modern than in our housing stock there can still be a number of problems you wouldn’t know about without surveying. These can include broken or collapsed pipes, blockages, fat or silt deposits and cracks.

Our surveys can be used to:

  • Determine the location/design of your drainage system 
  • Assess the condition of the system with recommendations for improvement.
  • Find bowed, collapsed or cracked pipes
  • Find obstructions and blockages

How We Work

After arranging the appointment we will discuss with you or your surveyor, the requirements for the survey. We can tailor make the survey to suit the problem or requirement you have.

When we turn up at your property we will get straight to work in mapping your drainage system, inspecting every pipe and drain. We always double check each and every part of your system to ensure we don’t miss even the smallest of cracks. We will take notes before presenting to you our findings on it’s condition and make you aware of any potential problems such as cracks, tree roots or drain collapses. 

We will then provide you with a written or DVD report as proof of our findings. This drain survey reports will be compiled to industry standards and sent to you within 3-5 days of completing the survey.

Our Equipment

We have handheld and portable units capable of surveying up to 70m of drains in one go with pipe diameters ranging up to 250mm.

Payment Methods

If the blockage is still too stubborn for either the manual or mechanical methods we will not charge you for either service. Instead we will undertake a more detailed analysis of your drainage system to find out what is causing the problem. For more information please see our Repairs Page.
