Drainage | CCTV SURVEY

Moving home or looking to purchase a rental property as an investment? The one of the biggest concerns should be the condition of your drainage system. Almost 100% of your drains are located underground and out of sight, which means if there’s an issue, you won’t be aware of it unless it’s leading to something further such as subsidence which then requires additional investigation.

CCTV drain surveys can help to identify blocked drains, fractured pipes, collapsed manholes, leaking drains, tree roots which are damaging pipes, subsidence and much more. All of these issues can become incredibly costly and can far surpass the needs of some external issues you can see such as a new driveway, repainting the house or replacing blocked guttering.


Our engineers utilise the latest state of the art CCTV drain cameras and crawler systems to access drains of different diameters to locate and identify any issue. Our drain CCTV surveys start from just £160 + VAT which when you consider the cost of the most common drainage issues our engineers face each day, is a fraction of the cost you could be looking at if problems present themselves at a later date.

The average cost of dealing with a subsidence issue within the UK last year was £1100 for 13 linear metres of 1.5 metre of mass pour concrete underpinning, if you’re looking at a larger surface area the costs can soon mount up. That’s why most mortgage lenders now recommend a CCTV survey of your drainage system to check the health of your drainpipes and the surrounding hazards before you complete on your new purchase.


When you use Smart Drain UK to conduct a CCTV survey on your drainage system we’ll compile a complete health check report which will include and immediate hazards / potential repairs and any recommendations such as ‘heavy limescale build up around the drainage main which we’d recommend cleaning to prevent a potential blockage’.

We’ll even provide CCTV footage for peace of mind so you can see in real time, the conditions of your drain and see for yourself the issues we highlight in the report so you can be confident in the advice your drainage engineer is providing.

Smart Drain UK also provide a range of services including drain unblocking, drain repairs, subsidence investigation, patch lining where we can replace a broken drainpipe without digging up precious flooring / a newly laid patio, drain jetting & drain cleaning.


That’s why when we identify an issue, highlight this on the report and show you the CCTV footage, we can accurately quote for the necessary repair works and should you or your mortgage lender wish us to, carry out the necessary repair works.


We undertake both commercial and domestic drainage surveys / repairs and have over 20 years’ experience working on the drainage network. We also carry out insurance work for some of the largest insurance brokers within the UK and can carry out any drainage insurance work and deal with your insurance provider on your behalf should you require us to do so.

What we use drain CCTV Surveys for...

CCTV drain surveys and inspection

CCTV surveys is the only method in use that allows drainage engineers to examine drains, sewers and pipes. Our experienced drainage engineers use state of the latest state of the art camera and software technology to provide a comprehensive and detailed drainage system inspection and report.


Why survey drains?

A drain survey alerts you to any potential problems, such as structural issues (fractures or collapse), root ingress or blockages. Our CCTV surveys are suitable for any type of property — residential, commercial, industrial or infrastructure such as roads, rail, utility, etc. Our services may well help you to avert a drainage disaster in the future.


Industry leading surveyor

Our CCTV surveyors are experienced and qualified to Water Industry standards so that the information we supply is consistent and reliable. Smart Drain UK is proud to be widely regarded as an industry leader in the provision of CCTV drainage surveys and reports.


Comprehensive reporting  

From the data we collect from your survey, we compile a comprehensive report, or CAD drawings which detail the drain condition, invert levels, flow directions and connections. We will also give recommendations and itemised costs involved in any works that may be necessary to get your drains flowing fully.


Large diameter sewer & drain survey

Our colour CCTV systems work in pipe diameters from just 75mm up to major sewers at 2000 mm. We use explosion proof cameras for special environments, pan and tilt cameras, and a satellite system which surveys the main sewer whilst sending a satellite camera 30-metres along any lateral connections. Our fleet of CCTV survey units makes us one of the biggest providers of this service in the UK.


Mobile CCTV equipment

Where access is restricted or constrained, our portable CCTV systems provide regular and pan and tilt surveys without the need for van-mounted equipment. This flexibility lets us adapt our service meet your survey needs precisely.


Rats infestations

SmartDrain UK provide detailed CCTV surveys to look for and identify broken or displaced pipework that allows access for rats into a property.  Sorting the fact from fiction, it is very unusual for rats to access a property via the toilet bowl.  Rats do damage soft plastic pipework and can cause problems and damage by eating through the pipework.  More often than not any access via damaged or displaced pipework can be rectified by a simple patch liner being applied to the hole or displaced joint which stops access for the vermin.
