Why Drainage Maintenance is Important

Drains facilitate the flow of waste water away from our homes and businesses. It’s critical, therefore, to keep those drains clean and healthy in order to ensure they keep doing their job efficiently. Regular maintenance of your drainage system prevents blockages that can grow over time and create unpleasant issues such as flooding, bad smells, and slow drainage.

In the long-term, maintaining your drains regularly, safeguards your property from structural damage. Proactive maintenance not only averts costly repairs but also contributes to a healthier and more hygienic environment whether it’s in the home, or the workplace.

Why Integrating Drain Jetting With a CCTV Drain Survey Makes Sense

Drain jetting is a high-pressure cleaning technique which is used to dislodge and remove stubborn blockages, debris, or detritus in drainage systems. By propelling a forceful stream of water through pipes and drains, it clears blockages extremely efficiently. This method is not only effective; it also minimises the risk of damage to the pipes.

A CCTV drain survey uses CCTV technology to inspect the interior of drainage systems. A remote-control camera unit is inserted into the pipes, transmitting real-time high-resolution footage to a monitor. This visual assessment allows for accurate identification of blockages, leaks, structural defects, and other issues without the need for invasive measures.

The benefits of integrating the two technologies include:

  1. Enhanced Precision and Efficiency. Integrating drain jetting with a CCTV drain survey offers unparalleled accuracy. The real-time data provided by CCTV enables precise identification of blockages and underlying issues whilst high-pressure water jetting ensures thorough removal of obstructions, debris, or buildup.
  2. Cost-Effective Solutions. Using this technologies together results in cost savings over the long term. By accurately pinpointing problem areas and using the jetting process accordingly, any unnecessary expense is averted. Early detection of potential drainage problems through CCTV surveys also prevents the need for expensive repairs.
  3. Preventive Maintenance. The use of jetting and CCTV creates a proactive maintenance regimen for your drainage system. The combination of preventative insights and thorough cleaning promotes sustained drainage system health, prolonging its lifespan and ensuring uninterrupted operation.
