3 Benefits of Drainage CCTV Surveys

August 29, 2023

When you’re faced with a blocked drain (and all the unpleasant symptoms that come with it), the last thing on your mind will probably be identifying the root cause of the problem and how best to avoid it in the future. Having said that, knowing what has caused your blockage and the subsequent damage is often a much more effective way of fixing your drains for good – rectifying rather than plastering over the issue, and saving you money in the future.

Our CCTV surveys in London and beyond enable our professional team to come to your property or site and get to the heart of the problem, whether that be identifying the exact part of the pipe which has become blocked or the section of pipe which has become damaged and needs replacing.

Here are three of the most compelling benefits of drainage CCTV surveys for both us and our clients.

Get to the heart of the problem for a sustainable fix

Sure, you might just want the immediate symptoms to disappear instantly – but it’s only by identifying the root cause of the issue that you will benefit from a sustainable and long-term fix.

When you contact our drainage professionals, they can use a CCTV camera to tunnel deep into your drainage network and identify exactly where the issue is, as well as how serious it is. They can then create a report based on their recommended remedy, which you can use to justify the next steps with your insurer, landlord, or amongst yourselves.

Minimise damage to surrounding infrastructure

Without a CCTV survey to point you towards the exact location of the problem, drainage specialists like our team at London Drainage would have to dig up entire sections of pipe to try and find the location of the problem and fix it.

Homeowners and other property owners won’t be surprised to hear that the cost of such an extensive operation can soon rise well above what they expected – not to mention it can take far more time and create a lot more work than simply locating the issue and focussing on that area specifically.

The software used is insurance-approved

Our third and final benefit is another one relating to cost – though this is a big one and is considered the number one benefit among most of our clients.

The software connected to our CCTV survey technology is insurance-approved, which means that the report and supporting video analysis can all be used as validated evidence of the need for extensive repair work to the drainage infrastructure surrounding or relating to your property. All the costs associated with the repair work will be included within that report, alongside recommended action that homeowners should take – all pulled together into a report that insurance companies can use as approved evidence.
