Drain Inspection Camera
Modern technology has had a big impact on the worlds of home maintenance and home improvement.
One industry that’s seen a lot of change thanks to evolution in cameras and CCTV systems is drain maintenance.
While once upon a time plumbing experts and engineers would have to dig up a system or examine it by eye to make repairs, check for leaks and monitor cracks and faults.
Today we’re able to carry out inspections quickly and easily using our specially designed high-tech equipment.
As a result of the ease with which modern a CCTV drain inspection can be carried out, more and more property owners are investing in thorough check-ups for their commercial or domestic systems.
Completed using a high-tech drain inspection camera, these regular inspections can help to keep your drains in great condition.
What is a CCTV drain inspection?
During a CCTV drain inspection your plumber will use a specially designed drain inspection camera to check for cracks, blockages and other faults within the system.
If any issues are found, you’ll then be able to arrange for repairs to be carried out before the blockage or fault causes any serious problems in your property.
Repairing drains before a blockage forms can help to prevent flooding, bad odours and even structural damage, potentially saving you lots of money on your home repair bill.
The benefits of a CCTV drain inspection
One of the main benefits of CCTV drain inspections is that they are quick and affordable.
Most inspections take just a few hours to complete, although this will depend on the size of your property.
Once the inspection has been carried out, you’ll receive a full report on the condition of your drainage system highlighting any issues that are discovered.
When to have a CCTV drain inspection
Although it can be easy to forget about your drainage system when it’s working well, carrying out an inspection before any issues arise is the best way to prevent unnecessary damage to your property.
If your drains haven’t been looked at for a while, arrange an inspection to make sure everything is working as it should.
If you’ve already noticed your drains begin to empty more slowly, or if there are bad odours emanating from the system, organising an inspection is even more important.
Another good time to arrange a CCTV drain inspection is when you’re buying a new property.
Catching drainage issues before you exchange contracts could allow you to negotiate the price of the property and potentially save you from an expensive oversight.
