CCTV Drain Survey

Our cameras include Tractor Crawler systems

We can carry out CCTV drain inspection surveys to diagnose and locate drainage problems. CCTV drain surveys are a cost effective method of locating drainage problems such as broken or collapsed pipes, tree roots damage, blockages, making it easy to assess the structural condition. Findings are provided on CD or DVD with a detailed computerised report.

Once our CCTV drain inspection identifies defective pipes, we use the latest sonar equipment to accurately pinpoint the exact location together with depth to the nearest cm saving valuable time and money. Please see our ‘no dig’ page for details of our trenchless repair systems. All findings are digitalised onto disc in mpeg, jpeg and pdf files.
