Throughout London, Hertfordshire and Essex we meet hundreds of people who suffer the consequences of blocked drains, overflow issues and water pooling at their homes and workplaces. We have trained drainage consultants operating across the South East who specialise in the use of CCTV drain survey equipment.

CCTV drain surveys help us to identify problems that traditional rodding and high-pressure jet washing techniques fail to resolve. Using the most innovative technology, our drainage consultants determine the condition of underground networks, the reasons behind blockages and how we can resolve your problems.

What is a CCTV Drain Survey?

At First Choice Drainage Solutions, we have plumbers on our team who clear blocked drains using a range of different tools including connectable rods, high-pressure jet washers and electro-mechanical equipment. When we have to deal with a more extensive issue such as water pooling, our consultants inspect the system as part of a modern CCTV drain survey.

We conduct CCTV drain surveys by inserting a flexible fibre optic cable into the drainage system. These cables are able to easily manoeuvres arounds corners and bends. The fibre optic camera, connected wirelessly to a monitor above the ground, allows our drainage consultants to examine a live feed without digging or excavating. This means significantly less disruption for our customers and clients.

Based on footage collected, we report on the following:

  • The condition of pipework and the drainage system as a whole
  • Blockages, tree root damage, silt deposits and debris
  • The underlying causes of cracks, leaks and damage
  • Any need the property has for a new drain lining installation

Surveys and Reports

Following a CCTV drain survey, home and business owners receive a comprehensive report that includes documented images with still photos and DVD footage. (Please contact us if you would like to preview a sample). We also supply a site plan for insurance purposes. A CCTV drain survey highlights the extent of the damage, and enables plumbers and drainage consultants to calculate a quote for the required repairs.

First Choice Drainage Solutions differentiates small repairs, such as the clearance of blocked drains and pipe patchwork, from long-term restoration methods like the installation of a replacement drain lining. Choose us for CCTV drain surveys with confidence knowing that our plumbers and drainage consultants always provide a reliable and transparent service.
