CCTV Drain Surveys in Bedfordshire

Drainflow Drainage Services Include CCTV Drain Inspections

Blocked drains are at best, an unpleasant problem and at worst, a major disruption to business operations or home life. The first signs of a drain blockage are usually unpleasant odours, and the slow drainage of water from sinks. If untreated, this can turn into flooding, waste water back up, or overflowing gullies. We recommend CCTV drain surveys in Bedfordshire wherever an accurate diagnosis and prompt solution are required.


Prompt and Effective CCTV Drain Surveys in Bedfordshire

As a long established drain clearance service in Bedfordshire, we know that our customers won’t stand for us dragging our heels. That’s why we prioritise a rapid response to client enquiries. For prompt and effective diagnosis of blocked drains, we use CCTV drain surveys.

A CCTV drain inspection uses a remote-controlled closed-circuit camera which is sent into the drainage system to survey the pipework. The CCTV camera provides 360° HD imagery of the drain’s interior which is relayed in real time to the surface. A Drainflow engineer analyses the data to pinpoint any problems or blockages.

Preventive Maintenance Using CCTV Survey

If you’re in the middle of a drain emergency and need to know what’s causing the problem, a CCTV survey will provide you with speedy answers. But it’s not the only application for this innovative system. Pipework maintenance is key to minimising the potential for cracked pipes, root ingress and blockages. CCTV inspections of your drainage system can flag up problems before they become a crisis.

Homebuyers’ CCTV Surveys

If you have plans to buy a property in Bedfordshire, a drainage survey should definitely be on your property inspection checklist. Many drainage problems are not apparent in visual surveys because they’re deep in the pipework system underground. Drainflow CCTV drain surveys cover the entire pipework system, using data from our remote cameras. All surveys are followed up with a detailed report and video footage where appropriate.

Cost-Effective Drain Clearance

At one time, drain blockages that were not immediately visible required expensive, and time-consuming, excavations of the pipework to locate where the problem lay. Now cameras serve as our underground ‘eyes’ providing real time data of your drainage system. And the process requires just one drain clearance specialist to manage the survey, in place of a team of excavators.

Once we know what the problem is, we can immediately get to work on an appropriate solution. It could be that drain jetting your drains will unblock the obstruction, or we may need to replace damaged pipework which has been pin-pointed in the course of the survey. Drainflow specialists will carefully explain the work they’re going to do, and provide an instant quote for the job.

Case Study – CCTV Drain Survey for Henlow Housing, Bedfordshire

The Drainflow team recently carried out a CCTV drain survey and drain jetting for a new housing development in the village of Henlow. Our client, Wheatley Homes requested the survey in preparation for local water authority adoption of the foul and storm drainage system.

The drainage system for any new housing development has to undergo drainage inspection prior to public use. The Drainflow team checks for any fissures, hairline cracks, displaced joints, collapsed sections and blockages.
