Drainage Survey Services

If your property is experiencing any drainage issues, such as blockages with your sinks or toilets, flooded washing machines or foul odours are emanating from drainage grills – a CCTV drainage survey is the best, most cost-effective way to understand the problem.

As waste management specialists here at BKP, we are able to mobilise our CCTV drain surveyance team as and when you need us – regardless if it’s an emergency or at a specific time and date; we can help to get your drainage operating back to its best at a time that suits you.

What issues can a CCTV drainage survey find?

The issues that can cause drainage problems can range from straightforward fixes (blockages and build-ups of limescale) to more serious issues, such as broken pipes or collapsed drains.

Regardless of the issue, undertaking a drain survey is the quickest, safest and most cost-effective way to find out what is causing the problem. Some of the more common issues we regularly treat here at BKP include blockages and leaks, displaced joints, tree root infiltration, corrosion, damaged drains, limescale and signs of displacement.

How our drainage survey service works

Rather than disturb the ground, digging holes or trenches, and taking apart pipes, we make use of the latest CCTV camera technology to identify any blockages, leaks or any other damaged components of your drains and pipework.

The surveyance is carried out by accessing a manhole, rodding eye or rodding cap – the type and size of CCTV system we use will be dependent on the size of the drain or sewer we’re dealing with. As the camera moves through the drainage system, it will record the overall distance it has travelled, along with footage of every inch of its journey. Any issues or defects that are found will be marked with their precise distance, which makes treating them much easier.

After our investigation, we compile our CCTV drainage survey that details precisely what the issue is, where the location is and the cause. We will then make recommendations on what is the most appropriate and economical repair, and offer to carry them out for you. We are able to supply you with immediate full costings of our drainage repair services – this will allow you to make the best-informed decision of how to proceed.

When you make a drain survey booking

If you decide to make a drain survey booking with us, our technicians will arrive at your property at a time that suits your schedule. Our service operates 24-hours a day, 365 days-a-week so is ideally placed to treat any emergencies, or we can arrange for a visit at any time you need us.

We will bring all the necessary equipment with us, inspect your drainage system beforehand to ascertain what type of camera we’ll need before we get to work. Through the transmission of the real-time footage, we will immediately be able to understand the issue – creating the survey report on-site. We will then offer our recommendations and take you through the works that need to be done, before presenting you with the instant quote.

If agreed, we can get to work treating the issue immediately or arrange to re-attend at a later date, at a time that suits you.

Why else should I have a drainage survey?

Of course, you don’t need (and shouldn’t have) to wait until your drainage system breaks down in order to address any issues that you may be worried about. Our CCTV drainage survey work is divided between emergency and casual work.

Aside from investigating any immediate issues, our surveys help to ascertain the ongoing qualities of drains and pipework. This is particularly useful for anyone who needs to ensure the health of their drains for a number of factors, including for insurance purposes, to compile a homebuyers report, for the construction of new buildings (or extensions), asset condition, repeated blockages, general maintenance and many more reasons besides.
