Drain Survey in London and the Home Counties

A CCTV drain survey is an investigation of an underground drainage network. It’s a non-invasive visual check of your property’s external pipes, performed using specialist CCTV camera equipment. Our engineers feed the camera into the drains from ground level to record vital information, which can then be used to create a detailed report for you to keep.

We offer two types of CCTV drain survey, each available at a fixed price. A drain inspection is the more basic option, but includes a full report on request. A drain mapping survey is more comprehensive because it includes diagrams of the network and the report comes as standard.

Drain camera surveys for home buyers

We’ve been asked to help people who have moved into a new home only to discover major drain problems a few weeks later. A homebuyer’s drainage survey could’ve helped them. Asking for a full CCTV drain survey before purchasing provides detailed information on the system before exchanging contracts. Some of our customers use the information in their reports to negotiate the potential cost of remedial work off the sale price.

A CCTV drain mapping survey can give you the drainage information you may need when planning future extension work. The report could also be needed for any build over agreements you apply for when trying to extend.
