Why Would I Need a Drain Survey?

A drain survey is the best way to identify issues within your drainage network. At Coastal Drains, we are proud to serve the Chichester area with high quality drain surveys. Basic drain blockages can normally be cleared with high-pressure water jetting, but for more serious or difficult to identify issues a high quality drain survey can give a precise diagnosis of drainage problems, allowing you to start planning for solutions. 

Issues around your house that could be signs of serious issues include slow flushing or incorrectly flushing toilets, corrosion around water outlets, water flooding out, and foul smells around drainage holes. When there is a serious issue within your drainage network, a drain survey can specifically detect both the issue and its location within your drainage map.

Drain Surveys Can Highlight Issues When Buying a House

When looking to purchase a house in Chichester, surveys are considered an essential aspect of the process, ensuring the stability of the building. However, most house surveys don’t include a CCTV drainage survey, despite the clear advantages a drain survey can provide to you at this stage of the house purchasing process. A drain survey using our CCTV equipment will make you aware of any current or potential issues within the drainage system, allowing you to budget for repairs needed, and even potentially to negotiate a reduction for the asking price of the house.

A drain survey in Chichester can also be needed when building an extension to your property. You will need to inform your local water authority about whether your proposed extension will be within 3m of a public sewer pipe. A CCTV drain survey from Coastal Drains will give you an accurate drainage map of your property, allowing you to continue with your extension.

Our State of the Art Drain Surveys in Chichester

CCTV Survey

We perform our drain surveys with flexible CCTV cameras, taking pictures and videos of your drains. Our SONDE multiple frequency digital locators allow us to produce an accurate map of your drainage network. Working in pipes of over 50mm in diameter, our process can access over 350m of pipe from a single access point, whilst causing minimal damage. This allows us to take high quality pictures and video from within your pipes, finding whatever the cause of your drainage issues is and documenting it. Upon completion of our work, all photos and videos will be made available to you. If you need to make an insurance claim based on information discovered in your drain survey, coastal drains can prepare a report for you, saving you time and stress.

What Our Drain Surveys Might Find

There are a variety of issues within your drainage network that may be identified by our surveying equipment. As well as offering CCTV drain surveys, Coastal Drains offers a variety of drain repair services to help solve these issues and restore your drains to full working order:

  • Heavy Duty Blockages: A blocked drain can be caused by many different types of waste product. Smaller blockages can be shifted with high-pressure water jetting, with larger blocks potentially requiring a drain rodding service to clear. Knowing the size, type, and location of larger blockages is essential for drain clearance.
  • Damage to Pipes: Cracks and leaks within pipes can often be patched through drain lining, though serious pipe issues may require pipe replacement.
  • Root Ingression: Roots burrowing into pipes can often be removed by hand, or through high-pressure water jetting. Damage to pipes should be fixable through drain lining.
  • Animal Infestation: Rats and other animals can get into your pipes, requiring high-pressure water jetting to remove and drain lining to repair pipe entry points.
  • Scale: Scale can be removed through high-pressure jetting, but a targeted scale removal tool may be required for a more permanent solution.
