CCTV Drain Inspections Bedford

Drainflow Carries Out CCTV Drain Inspections in Bedford

When our drains get blocked, what we want is an immediate solution, but that’s not always possible. Sometimes the blockage is located beyond your pipes, in the drainage system that removes the waste from your home. When this is the case, a CCTV drain survey is used to locate the blockage prior to drain clearance. In this blog, we take a look at how CCTV drain inspections in Bedford are carried out by the Drainflow team.


What is a CCTV Drain Inspection?

A small HD camera is attached to our remote controlled ‘crawler’ and then sent down, into the pipework. The waterproof camera transmits constant signals up to the surface, where a monitor models the received data. Drainflow engineers use this information to survey the condition of the drains, and locate the blockage which is causing the problem.

Common Drain Blockage Problems

Your drainage system could be suffering from a build up of mud, dead leaves, or silt which can usually be flushed out using a high pressure drain jetting hose. This propel water jets at pressures in excess of 3000 psi, and is capable of removing most build-ups in your pipes.

Alternatively, your blockage could be caused by tree roots which have found their way into the pipe and are now stopping the flow of water. If this is the case, the roots need to be removed and steps taken to stop re-growth occurring.

“Excellent service with great communications and feedback from the staff. Was really impressed with how promptly they dealt with our issue and provided me with a report and disc within 24 hours.
