Finding the source of your blocked drains is important to prevent further issues down the line. One problem with drains is that you can’t diagnose the issue without pricy, disruptive digging. So, what is the answer? By doing a CCTV drain survey in Sandwell, Argo-Drains can steer clear of this inconvenience.

Using sophisticated remote camera technology that gathers video and other useful data that may be used to identify drainage problems, a CCTV drainage evaluation assesses drainage systems.
You must place a camera into your drainage system to look for damage (as well as possible causes of it). A CCTV camera system helps us discover issues more quickly and precisely, which helps us properly carry out repairs.
The two main camera types that can be used for your CCTV drain survey in Sandwell are a robotic crawler and a push CCTV drainage camera.
Robotic crawler CCTV cameras come in a variety of diameters, from 150mm to 2000mm. With these cameras, an operator is able to capture HD-quality footage because they come with LED lighting. The camera is controlled by a console that is maintained in a specialised truck. The camera is installed on a durable body and has an electric motor to drive the wheels and push it through the pipe.
It is also possible to modify the wheels to account for the various conditions found inside pipes. Robotic crawler CCTV systems may also be equipped with additional features like articulating arms, rotating camera heads, and zoomable lenses that let them take pictures of the inside of pipes from various angles and distances to help locate the problem. A push CCTV drainage camera is more usually employed when the pipe has a smaller diameter, is vertical, or may have bends that make it impossible for a robotic crawler to use.
A CCTV inspection can be used to quickly, discreetly, and affordably identify drainage problems, such as minor drain clogs that can be quickly rectified or severe drain or pipe collapses that need immediate attention.
During our CCTV drain survey in Sandwell, the following issues will become clear, which you can then address and include in a planned preventative maintenance (PPM) programme to keep your drains operating for years to come:
Another circumstance where you might want to consider getting a CCTV drain survey in Sandwell is when you move into a new house. If you have the chance to haggle with the sellers to have any faults fixed, you might be able to spot any drainage difficulties with the home before making a purchase. This may be better than purchasing the home altogether and waiting for problems to occur because you would control the property and be in charge of managing any concerns. Please get in touch with us right away to set up a drain inspection so that we can examine any issues.
If you’re planning to extend your Sandwell house, drainage should be taken into account as the project may have an impact. For instance, if your extension spans or is situated close to a public sewer, the local sewage undertaker may need to approve it. Additionally, pipes may be damaged if a building is built over an existing drain or sewer, resulting in leaks, blockages, odours, and possibly even health issues and environmental damages. Using our advanced CCTV drainage survey in Sandwell, we can accurately simulate the existing drainage system and determine whether any adjustments are required before the addition is constructed.
