Having a CCTV Drainage survey before you purchase a new home is a great idea. Before buying a house, you want to know that you are getting quality. A CCTV drainage survey ensures that you do not have any hidden problems with your drains. The last thing you want when you move into your dream home is to find problems with the drainage. This is why a home buyers CCTV survey is recommended to uncover problems with drainage.

What is a Home Buyers CCTV Drain Survey?

Often, drainage issues go unnoticed. You don’t want to discover problems with your drainage as soon as you move into your new property. A CCTV survey uncovers problems such as pitch fibre repairs, root ingress, blocked drains and more drainage problems. A Home Buyers CCTV Survey is used to identify issues before they become your problem. Buying a house is a massive investment which is why it is important to know everything about your future home.

A building surveyor is unable to identify proper issues with drainage. They will just inspect the manhole, rather than look at the complete drainage system of the house. This is why an experienced drainage professional is needed.

CCTV Drainage Surveys can help identify key issues which may cause problems in the near future. The CCTV camera technology gives a clear image so you can see the problem for yourself in advance of buying a home and may give you a chance to solve a problem before it arises. Common problems which can be identified using CCTV drainage surveys include rats in drains, pitch fibre pipes or root ingress.

Pitch fibre pipes are a common issue as these pipes were commonly installed in homes built between 1950-1970. It was not discovered until a later date these pipes can actually break down and cause many issues including blockages. If you think your future home may use pitch fibre pipes, a CCTV drain survey can be helpful to check the health of your drainage system.
