Detailed Commercial CCTV Drain Survey Reporting

Your report will detail everything we have found regarding the condition of your drainage system, including any defects or damage we have discovered. If the need for any repair or maintenance work is indicated to prevent issues in the future we will explain what is needed. We aim to provide a report that clearly explains what you need to know, rather than a complicated jargon filled document.


What drain surveying technology do you use?

When our engineers conduct commercial drain inspections they employ an array of equipment from the cutting edge to the mundane. Our state of the art survey cameras can be operated while submerged in fast flowing water and be manoeuvred in confined spaces. We also use extremely low tech flexible rods to push cameras along the pipes as well as remotely controlled crawlers which can get the cameras into very constricted pipework. If necessary we will also use sonar equipment to generate an acoustic image of areas which cameras are unable reach.

Can CCTV drain surveys find drain blockages and drain defects?

In short, yes they can. Essentially if it can be seen Commercial Drain Surveys can find it, so our cameras can show you the precise location and nature of a blockage, as well as revealing damage caused by tree roots, cracks in pipework, damage caused by burrowing animals or anything else that might be detrimental to the smooth operation of the drainage system.


How to unblock a commercial drain?

Commercial drain unblocking is often a matter of pushing good old-fashioned drainage rods through the pipes to clear the blockage. We also use high pressure water jets to flush blockages out of a system and if that proves to be ineffective, we can bring in a suction tanker to free a commercial clogged drain. In addition to testimonials from satisfied clients we can, if you wish, provide video footage from a Commercial CCTV Drain Survey so that you can see exactly what our surveys can show you.

Commercial Drain Survey Experts

How can I prevent future blockages in my commercial drains?

The simplest method of preventing a commercial clogged drain is to be careful about what is allowed to get into the system. Care to prevent leaves and other debris from being washed into drains, as well as being mindful about the location of trees and their roots can be effective. Essentially, if something is not water soluble make every effort to keep it out of the drainage system.


What happens in a commercial drain survey?

When we conduct commercial CCTV drain surveys we enter the drainage system using an existing entry point, eliminating the need for disruptive and costly excavation work. We then feed a hose, floodlights and specialist camera through the system. The camera sends its images to a screen at the surface where our engineers study them in order to produce a detailed and comprehensive report explaining what the survey has shown and what, if any, action needs to be taken with regard to the drainage system.
