Benefits of Using a CCTV Survey
July 28, 2017 - by Tony Earnshaw
Blocked drains can be a real problem. Not only do they cause inconvenience when they occur, but they can also prove costly – if left undiagnosed and untreated, they can lead to serious long-term damage to a property.
It’s relatively easy to identify when you have a blocked drain. Warning signs include unpleasant smells in or around the house, rising water in toilet bowls, and slow drainage in sinks.
Sometimes a blockage is a simple matter to fix – your sink could be blocked by food debris or hair, for instance. However, more serious blockages, such as those in outside drains, will probably need professional attention before they turn into something worse.
In the past, finding the cause of a blocked drain could be seriously problematic. The only options would be to carry out jetting or rodding of the affected area, but there was no guarantee this would be totally effective or get to the root of the blockage. In the most severe cases excavation would have to be carried out in order to find out what was to blame.
Thankfully, all that has changed with the arrival of CCTV surveys. Using the latest camera technology, the professionals can seek out the exact cause and location of your blockage, quickly and efficiently. They can then treat it as necessary, leaving your drains fully functioning with the least fuss and mess.
CCTV surveys are also routinely used in maintenance, helping to identify potential problems such as tree roots or collapsed pipes before they cause serious damage.
