Everything you should know about CCTV Drain Surveys

A CCTV Drain Survey in Birmingham

CCTV drainage survey is an inspection of drains and sewers using a remote-controlled camera to determine the root cause of a drainage problem. The CCTV survey would identify any leaks, blockages, scale build-ups, and more, using a high-definition camera, instead of digging intrusive and time-consuming trenches. Our experienced professionals use the captured images to fully understand the drainage problem and deliver the drainage information in the form of a report containing recommendations for a corrective measure.

What do we use?

Birmingham Measured Survey specialists use an array of the latest CCTV drain survey equipment to conduct an intensive inspection that is capable of identifying any inconsistencies, and the full conditions of your drainage system.

How does a CCTV Survey Work?

We will visit your site armed with high-tech drainage equipment, such as waterproof push rod cameras to drive through the drainage system and remote crawlers for visual insight of the damaged or obstructed pipe. With the drainage access, we use the CCTV camera to bring real-time footage of any cracks, blockages, collapsed pipes and much more. This footage helps to compile a drain survey report to enable understanding of gravity of the drainage problem, and recommendations, such as repairs, maintenance, replacement, and restoration, given for remedy.
