How We Carry Out Drain Mapping


Our Range Of Techniques

The Sonde is specialist piece of equipment that transmits high frequencies, facilitating the accurate tracing of drains, sewers, and ducting, as well as the accurate pinpointing of where any damage within the drains is in relation to the surface. As an attachment to our CCTV camera equipment, it is the perfect addition to a CCTV inspection if more precise details are required, such as the depths of particular drains, where they correspond to on the surface, or where digging is required for drain repair work.


Drain Mapping Services

As an extra service, we provide drain tracing and mapping for drains on residential and commercial properties. Additionally to our CCTV camera equipment, we attach a Sonde device to the end of the camera, which allows us to accurately trace drains on a site and mark them up on the property, aiding in construction works or building planning as it gives precise measurements of drains, depths and locations.
