Reasons to have a drain inspection

In the realm of drain maintenance, several advanced techniques ensure thorough and accurate drain inspections. These methods, employed by our professional team, guarantee not only the detection of current issues but also the identification of potential future problems, safeguarding your drainage system’s overall health.

CCTV Drain Surveys: This cutting-edge technology involves manoeuvring a drain camera through the drainage system to provide real-time visuals of the drain’s condition. It’s highly effective for identifying blockages, cracks, root intrusions, and pipe displacements without any excavation. The footage aids in precise diagnoses, making it a cornerstone of professional drain inspections.

Sonar Drain Tracing: When dealing with more complex systems or concealed drains, sonar drain tracing becomes invaluable. This method uses electronic transmitters to detect the layout and depth of drainage pipes, particularly useful in planning extensive repairs or renovations.

Dye Water Testing: A simpler yet effective technique involves using non-toxic dye. The coloured water helps trace water flow, revealing the sources of leaks and blockages, especially in complex or interconnected drain networks.

Hydrostatic Pressure Testing: This advanced method checks the integrity of pipes by filling them with water under controlled pressure. It’s instrumental in identifying hidden leaks or weaknesses within the system, ensuring the pipes can withstand normal operational pressure.

Each of these methods offers unique benefits, however our team will offer bespoke advice for your drain inspection requirements to ensure we are resolving the problem as quickly as possible.
