CCTV Drain Inspections Bedford

Drainflow Carries Out CCTV Drain Inspections in Bedford

When our drains get blocked, what we want an immediate solution, but that’s not always a possibility. Sometimes the blockage is located beyond your pipes, in the drainage system that removes the waste from your workplace or home. Where 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?

If there’s a suspected blockage, Drainflow engineers use specialised cameras in order to carry out CCTV drain inspections. This allows them to identify the blockage, pinpoint the location, and determine the best way to remove it.

Working from the mouth of the drain, a remote-controlled CCTV camera is sent into the pipework on a crawler vehicle. It sends real time footage back to a monitor, which allows the engineers to diagnose the problem. Once we know what we’re dealing, we’ll share our findings and make recommendations for immediate clearance of the blockage.

Common Drain Blockage Problems

Your drainage system could be suffering from a build-up of mud, dead leaves, or silt. These blockages an usually be flushed out using a high pressure drain jetting hoses. The strong, flexible hoses propel water jets at pressures in excess of 3000 psi and are capable of removing most build-ups in your drainage system.

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 regrowth occurring.
