CCTV Drainage Surveys & Inspections

Often if there is a re-occurring blockage in your property, we would always recommend that a CCTV drain survey be carried out. 

Once a report has been prepared and compiled, we will share our findings about any drainage problem with you. 

With the use of our drain crawler and the mobile CCTV drain inspection unit, we can examine the structural condition of the drain and identify any current issues as well as uncover any future drainage problem seven before they occur. 

Property buyers are recommended to have a CCTV drains survey conducted, before completing the purchase of a new home or building. A CCTV drains inspection is often the only way to ascertain whether the drain line sofa site are in good condition. This simple and relatively inexpensive step has saved many property buyers huge post-purchase costs of getting the property drains fixed.
