What Happens During a CCTV Drain Survey?
The equipment we use for drain surveys consists of a cable roll with a small, digital camera attached to one end. The cable itself is long enough to extend through practically all drainage systems.
When at your property in Kent, we locate an appropriate access point into your system. We then feed the cable into the pipework, camera first. The slow unrolling of the cable guides the camera deeper into your drainage system.
On the surface, a member of our team watches a live-feed on a screen. We use our vast experience to monitor the footage on a metre-by-metre basis.
When complete, we know the exact layout of your system and can pinpoint problems with precision. As such, we can then recommend the most effective solutions for a swift fix.

Pre-Purchase Drain Surveys for Home Buyers
CCTV drain surveys have become a common requirement for potential house buyers. Many lenders and banks request a pre-purchase survey of the drainage system at your prospective new home before issuing a mortgage.
Buying a house is a huge investment. While not directly comparable in price, repairing damaged or collapsed pipework also comes with a large bill. If the latter follows soon after committing to the former, the total expense may leave some with an unexpected cash shortfall.
Our surveys offer peace of mind and satisfy mortgage providers too.
