CCTV Drain Surveys & CCTV Inspections

A CCTV drainage survey is the inspection of drains and sewers using a remote-controlled camera to identify the root cause of a drainage problem. The drainage survey uses a high-definition camera to determine blockages, leaks, scale build-ups, or any other problems, instead of digging intrusive and time-consuming trenches. The captured images assist our surveyors to fully understand the drainage issue and present the information in a report format; alongside recommendations for a corrective measure.

    What do we use to conduct our CCTV Drain Surveys?

    The following are the most common techniques and equipment used by our specialist CCTV survey team:

    • CCTV Cameras: these modern cameras can operate under flowing waters and tight spaces, providing a clear visual access of the drains and other areas with limited access.
    • Access rods: the access rods are flexible, and thus used in pushing the cameras to navigate through tight turns within the drainage system under survey.
    • Sonar units: sonar units provide acoustic profiling, and help get insights into the condition of filled pipes with obstructed access.
