What is a CCTV Drain Survey in Stoke on Trent?

A CCTV drainage evaluation evaluates drainage systems using advanced remote camera equipment that collects video and other helpful information that may be utilised to identify drainage problems.

You must insert a camera into your drainage system in order to inspect it for damage and potential reasons of that damage. We can identify problems more quickly and precisely with a CCTV camera system, and we can effectively complete repairs as a result.

Types of CCTV drainage camera systems in Stoke on Trent

The two main camera types that may be used for your CCTV drain examination in Stoke on Trent are a robotic crawler and a push CCTV drainage camera.

A robotic crawler camera is controlled by a console inside a specialised vehicle. The camera is installed on a robust shell and just has an electric motor to drive the wheels and push it through the pipe. Thanks to technical improvements, these cameras are now available in a wide variety of diameters, ranging from 150mm to 2000mm. HD-quality video can also be recorded when LED lighting is added. Our cameras also include articulating arms, rotating camera heads, and zoomable lenses to enable us to pinpoint precisely what really is causing the blocked drains.

The pipe is more frequently utilised with a push CCTV drainage camera when it has a smaller surface area, is vertical, or may include bends that are challenging for a robotic crawler to operate. These cameras include thin, flexible rods that may be wound onto a tiny reel and used to direct the user down the pipe. There is a monitor mounted above the reel to watch the camera’s route. In order to inspect the pipe inside and identify issues, these cameras also have LED lighting.

What type of issues can a CCTV drainage survey find in Stoke on Trent?

A CCTV study may be used to swiftly, covertly, and economically find drainage issues, such as minor drain clogs that can be readily fixed or catastrophic drain or pipe collapses that require emergency treatment.

The following concerns will become obvious during our CCTV drainage study, which you can then fix and include in a planned preventive maintenance (PPM) schedule to keep your drains functioning for years to come:

  • Blockages
  • Scale Build Up
  • Signs of poor installation or displacement
  • Corrosion
  • Wear and Tear
  • Leaks
  • Displaced joints
  • Cracked and collapsed drains

Note: Sometimes it is necessary to jetter wash the drains before a CCTV scan in order to clean the pipe and check to see whether the pipes are damaged when they are scaled up.

CCTV Drain Surveys and Extensions Stoke on Trent

It’s critical to consider drainage when building an addition to your Stoke on Trent home since it can be impacted. For instance, the local sewage undertaker may need to approve your extension if it crosses or is located close to a public sewer. Additionally, if a building is constructed over an existing drain or sewer, the pipes may be damaged, leading to leaks, clogs, smells, and maybe even health problems and environmental harm. We can correctly represent the current drainage system using our technology and evaluate whether any changes are necessary before the addition is built.
