CCTV Surveys

At The Drain Guys, we have extensive experience in clearing drain blockages either manually or using our specialist tools. But if a blockage cannot be removed with conventional methods, it may indicate that there is a more serious problem somewhere in your drainage system. This is when it is time to have a CCTV drain survey carried out.

CCTV surveys are used to provide you with a fast and accurate assessment of the condition of the drains so that we can understand exactly how and why the blockage is occurring. Once we have this information we can use it to find an effective solution so that we can remove the issue and get your drainage system back to normal. If you need a CCTV drain survey please get in contact with our team today.

Whether you’ve already got an issue that is clogging up your drain or you’ve just noticed tell-tale sign like slow-draining sinks, a CCTV survey can give you the best possible information on the blockage.

CCTV Surveys Case Study

“Our high pressure water jetter works at 3000psi and flows at 8 GPM. It can be operated manually via the control panel or using radio remote. We used this today to clear a blocked rainwater drain at a country estate where the high pressure water jetter was over 90 metres from where the blockage was. We were able to clear this blockage with no problems and no safety issues as we were able to use the remote, which meant we did not need to leave a manhole open and unattended while walking back and forth.”
