CCTV Drain Surveys – What Happens Next?
If you need assistance locating a drainage issue in Poole, our team will likely recommend CCTV surveys. This is the fastest, most cost-effective way to get to the source of the problem.
The findings of your survey will provide photos of damage, video footage and a plan showing the location of your Poole drainage system. We provide services to deal with all drainage issues whether it be an emergency or a small leak.
Drain relining and replacement
If following a CCTV survey we notice your drains or pipes are damaged, depending on the cause and severity of the issue, we may recommend replacing or relining your drains.
Drain relining is a popular option thanks to the ‘no-dig’ technology, meaning we can repair the pipe without the need to excavate. This is the fastest way to repair the drain, as you simply only need to wait for the new lining to be sealed.
If a pipe is heavily damaged, drain relining may not be an option. We can excavate the pipe safely, and replace it within the same day.
There are many reasons your drain may be blocked, such as root ingress, damage to pipes, or a simple build up of dirt, hair and grease. We offer many drain clearance services.
Drain Jetting involves firing high-pressure water through your drains to clear any blockages which may be preventing the usual flow. This high-pressure water can navigate bends and is able to clear blockages which may be far down within the pipes and unable to be reached by drain rods.
Drain rodding is another method we use to unblock drains, more often used for blockages identified to be near the surface. Our high quality, durable drain rods can help to pull out and clear blockages in the pipes identified by CCTV drain surveys. Read more about how we find drain blockages here.
Pitch Fibre Repairs
If your CCTV drain survey identifies pitch fibre pipes, the chances are, they will need to be repaired. Pitch fibre pipes were often used in properties built from 1950-1970, and as recently discovered, only have a lifespan of around 40 years. After this, the pipes begin to delaminate causing them to break down and collapse, preventing water flow.
Rats in Drains
Rats and other small animals can enter drains through damaged or cracked pipes. These can often be caused due to damage while undertaking property renovation works. Once in the pipes and drains, these animals then have the potential to access your home. Our CCTV drain surveys Poole can identify these access points and then we can help you find a solution to prevent and stop this from occurring.
