Drain Leak Detection CCTV Surveys

Our drain leak detection service engineers carry out detailed CCTV drain surveys – finding leaks and the source and location of drain problems.

A CCTV Drain investigation is carried out by thoroughly cleaning the drains and then carrying out a detailed high-tech drain CCTV survey. 

The drain CCTV camera heads are fully traceable from above ground – enabling us to pinpoint the exact location of any drain problem when found, helping to recommend the best and most cost effective solution for repairing your drain.

Throughout your CCTV Survey we gather photographic and video evidence of any drain problems with the exact locations marked above ground level.

A detailed report of our findings is documented in an insurance approved format to assist with any repair works or insurance claims.

Reasons To Consider a Drain Survey

There are a number of reasons why you might need a CCTV drain survey; here are some of the symptoms that you should look out for that might help you come to a decision 

  • An unexplained blockage 
  • A suspected fractured or collapsed pipe 
  • Possible Tree Root Damage 
  • Drainage Water Backing Up 
  • Escaping air bubbles coming out of your drains 
  • Blocked Drains 
  • Toilets not flushing properly

Home Buyer Surveys

If a severe problem develops inside your drains, the cost implications can be significant. 

Yet, many people who are in the process of purchasing a property do not choose the option of having a home buyer survey completed on their drainage system. The cost of such a survey is minimal in comparison to the potential benefits. 

If you are in the process of purchasing a property, then a home buyer drain survey is, in our opinion, essential.

Blocked Drains

Our Drain CCTV surveys will quickly identify the cause of any blocked drains. 

We first of all flush the drains to enable our CCTV system to have a totally clear view of any issues which are present in your drainage system. 

Once we have located the blockage we are able to pinpoint the exact location using a cat & genny from above ground to detect the CCTV camera underground – pinpointing the location of the blockage. 


Subsidence can be caused as a result of leaking drains. 

Leaking drains partnered with sandy-type soil can, over time, cause the ground to erode, particularly when it is close to the footings of the building, which then manifests itself as subsidence.

Drain Flushing

The first part of our CCTV inspection process involves flushing your drains to remove years of built up dirt and light debris.

Our drain flushing equipment is perfect for cleansing the drain pipes but not for clearing blockages.

Expert CCTV Drain Surveys

Once the pipes have been flushed clean, our technician carryout a Drain CCTV investigation to look for any signs of damage or subsidence.

In many cases, when there has been a blockage, the sewage has caught on a crack or other problem within the pipes, so it makes sense when the cameras are already down there to conduct a full and complete survey of the drain or sewer.
