If you need to look inside your drains and have a CCTV drain survey you have come to the right place
J and P are specialist drainage engineers who can help you with your drainage maintenance and problems.
Why have a CCTV drain survey?
CCTV (closed circuit television) is a very useful tool for the drainage engineer as most drains are either concealed within the building or underground. There needs to be a way of diagnosing problems and finding out the condition of drain system components; the most cost effective and efficient way of doing this is via a CCTV survey.
A small CCTV camera is mounted on the end of a rubber hose and pushed into the drainage system transmitting a picture of the inside of the drainage pipework and sewers. This film can be viewed real time on a screen by the operator; the film is also recorded for re-inspection at a future date.
There are many reasons why you may need a CCTV drain survey which may include:
1. Finding out the cause of a blockage or problem
2. Find out the condition of drains to a. inform a property purchase or b. informs whether maintenance or remedial works are required
A common cause of drainage problems within London are collapsed drains between the property and public sewer. This is primarily due to very old drainage pipework, but also can be caused by roots from nearby bushes and trees compromising the wall of the drain.
The only way to economically determine is a drain has collapsed is via a CCTV drain survey.
Domestic and Commercial Drainage Surveys
We regally carry out CCTV drain survey work for both domestic and commercial customers. We generally find that more of our regular CCTV preventative maintenance surveys come from commercial customers with much of our domestic work deriving from an emergency or blocked drain.
