Why Might I Need a Drain Survey?

A drain survey is the best way to identify issues within your drainage system, and at Coastal Drains we are proud to serve the Crowborough area with a prompt and professional service. While most basic drain blockages can be cleared with high-pressure water jetting, other more stubborn blockages or issues can require a CCTV drain survey to properly identify and establish a plan for treatment. Warning signs that you may need a thorough drain survey for your property include toilets flushing incorrectly, signs of corrosion, water backing up, or unpleasant smells around drains. If you have any of these issues, a drain survey is a great way to establish problems within your drainage system.

If you are looking to purchase a house in Crowborough, getting a drain survey alongside an inspection from a surveyor is a great way to ensure you are aware of the condition of the properties drainage system. Most housing surveyors will not cover drainage, but issues like cracked or displaced pipes could become expensive problems for you in the future, and a drain survey will identify these issues before purchase. Knowing the condition of a properties drainage system before purchase could even help you negotiate on the price of the property.

When building an extension to your Crowborough property, a drain survey is a necessary part of the building process. You will need to tell the local water authority about the drainage infrastructure under your house, and whether the proposed extension will be within 3m of a public sewer pipe. Our CCTV drain survey technology allows us to create a detailed map of your drainage system, allowing you to comply with the authorities and move forward with your extension.

Our High Quality Drain Surveys

CCTV Survey

To carry out our drain surveys we use state of the art flexible CCTV cameras to take pictures and videos of your drains. We trace out the location of your pipes using a SONDE multiple frequency digital locator, producing an accurate map of the drainage network. For pipes between diameters of 50mm and 1m our speedy and accurate diagnoses will identify problems whilst causing minimal disruption to your drainage system. We can access over 350 metres of pipe from a single entry point, producing high quality pictures and videos, which we will make available to you after the completion of our work. We can also help deal with an insurance claim on your behalf, preparing a report based on your drain survey which can be sent to your insurance company, saving you from stress.

What Our Drain Survey Will Be Looking For

Our detailed drainage surveys in Crowborough can help identify all manner of serious issues within your drainage system such as:

  • Heavy Duty Blockages – Smaller blockages can normally be cleared with high-pressure water jetting, though larger blockages may require a drain rodding service to shift.
  • Damage to pipes such as cracks, leaks and displacement – Smaller leaks and cracks can be patched through drain lining, but more serious pipe issues may require pipe replacement.
  • Tree root ingression – While smaller tree ingression can sometimes be removed by hand, larger ingression or pipe damage can require high-pressure jetting and drain lining to restore pipes.
  • Animal infestation – Animals such as rats can burrow through pipes, so high-pressure jetting and drain lining may be required for your pipes.
  • Scale – Caused by excess minerals in hard water, high-pressure jetting can remove a buildup but targeted use of a scale removal tool may be required for a more permanent solution.
