Preventing Problems with CCTV Drain Inspections

CCTV Drain Inspections

Even the most well-maintained homes spring a leaky pipe or sport a blocked drain now and then. While most small plumbing problems can usually be easily fixed, there could be larger problems brewing underneath the surface. Literally.

That’s where our CCTV drain inspections come in. Think of it as an ‘endoscopy’ for your home.



How Does It Work?

A camera inspection works with a plumber attaching a waterproof camera to a sewer cable which is pushed into your plumbing. While the camera travels through your plumbing, the plumber can look inside your pipes to detect any potential problems. 

As a result, when it comes to excavating for repair work, we’ll know exactly where to dig and how deep the repair is. Having this knowledge can save you thousands of dollars.

 

How Long Does it Take?

This question would depend entirely on the size of your home or property and what state your pipes are in. A small home is likely to have less pipework connecting your system to the public sewers, therefore our team will be able to map and inspect it much quicker.

That being said, you never know what lies beneath! Your drains would have been installed back when your house was built. Since then, you may have undergone property renovations leading to new systems being built. All in all, it’s best to put aside a couple of hours for your inspection.



When Does It Benefit You To Have It Done?

There are 4 situations where we would always recommend a CCTV drain inspection:

  • Buying a new house or commercial property 
  • Continuous issues such as slow draining sinks or bad smells
  • Following any repair work
  • Map your drainage system

Any of these situations would warrant a thorough inspection. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Our team is highly skilled in offering this service to our clients. If you think you might need a CCTV Drain Inspection, please contact us.
