What is a drainage survey?
A drainage survey allows our engineers to explore drainage systems in depth, where it would otherwise be difficult to identify faults in pipework without carrying out more intrusive works. These surveys are carried out through the use of a specialist camera which is manoeuvred through the drainage system. This camera allows our engineers to see a live video camera feed of the system as it travels through the drain.
This allows for issues to be identified in greater detail so that the appropriate course of action can be taken to rectify them.
When might I need a drainage survey?
A camera drain survey can be used to identify blockages, leaks, cracks and other related pipework and drainage issues within a building. Blockages within a drainage system will often produce foul smells and leaks. This can make it very difficult for businesses to operate, for example, blockages on shop floors of supermarkets producing foul smells can be a deterrent for shoppers.
A benefit of a camera survey is that it can allow an engineer to ascertain and understand issues further down a run of pipework that cannot be seen from ground level. This allows us to gain a greater understanding of the configuration of the pipework which can allow us to put a plan in place to take the necessary actions to rectify and prevent issues occurring in the future.
What are the benefits of drainage surveys?
One of the many benefits of having drainage camera surveys carried out is that it enables you to gain a greater understanding and idea of the pipework configuration in the property in situations where the original drainage drawings are not available.
Camera surveys are also extremely efficient, with the live video feed function, it allows the engineer to identify issues in the pipework in real-time meaning that solutions and feedback can be provided in a swift manner to the necessary parties.
Drainage surveys are also unintrusive due to the use of the camera, this alleviates the need for extensive excavation works to be carried out in order to access sections of pipework and investigate. This means that your business suffers the minimal amount of disruption possible due to the need for any intrusive works being negated in the investigation stage.
