CCTV drain inspections and surveys London

Multi-trade provide CCTV drain inspections and surveys in London. Give us a call on 020 8798 9250. We'll talk through your requirements and get a drainage engineer out to you today, if necessary - Central London of course but anywhere in North, South, East or West London.

Pipes, drains and sewer inspection cameras

Using the latest equipment we can quickly identify faults within the pipe work of any drainage system using a camera or for larger pipes, a robotic camera with a lighting rig. A camera can inspect the interior of drains and sewers that would otherwise be inaccessible. We can provide you with a detailed report of the pipe with video footage.

CCTV drain inspection surveys save a lot of money. In fact, the only other way to get this sort of detailed information is to excavate the drain! As you might imagine, this is a very costly undertaking.

What can CCTV footage reveal in your drain?

CCTV drain inspection surveys commonly reveal drain blockages, mis-aligned drains, silt build-up, off-set drain joints, fractured pipes, collapsed drains and tree roots. Once our drainage engineers have viewed the CCTV survey footage of your drain, they will advise you on the best course of action to deal with your drainage problem.

CCTV drain surveys when buying a new home

A CCTV survey can spot issues long before they develop into something costly. This information can be invaluable when you are making a decision on a house purchase, for example. Ask us about our property pre-purchase survey. It could save you a lot of money.

So what's involved in a CCTV drain survey?

Step 1 is to get into the drain. Once we've found an access point the CCTV camera can be pushed down the pipe. If you have a nice wide pipe the camera will be mounted on the remote controlled robot.

Looking at the blockages on a video screen

Step 2 is the fact finding. The engineer looks at the images from the camera and logs what they see. They also note down the location of any blockage or structural defect in the pipe. This video footage can be made available to you so you can watch it at anytime from anywhere - although it's not likely to be a blockbuster. No pun intended....

Compiling a report on your drains

Step 3 is to compile the report. The report informs you of what we've found, listing any problems and their location within the pipe. Hopefully, you might not have any problems at all! The report comes complete with photos and video footage if required.

And what's more, we'll store it on our bespOKe client portal called 'Datanet' and you can have access to it anytime.

TestimonialI recently used Multi-trade when I wanted a drain survey on a house I was thinking of buying. They provided a very efficient and professional service. They were able to do the work quickly and at a very fair price. They turned up when they said they would and I got the survey report very quickly.

Claire Jackson, London

TestimonialI heard of Multi-trade when I was putting an offer in on a house. The property was old and it hadn't been lived in for a while. Also, there was a smell coming from the drains. Not a strong smell, but it was there. The surveyor suggested getting a CCTV drain survey and my estate agent recommended Multi-Trade. I'd never heard of this before, but anyway, I got them in and the survey showed that there was a fracture in one of the drains. Not a major disaster but I got a fixed price from Multi-trade on how much it would cost to repair. I then used this figure for my negotiations. I eventually exchanged on the house and that survey not only saved me money, I reckon it actually made me over £1000! So yes, I would recommend Multi-trade to do your drain survey!

Agatha Humphries, London

Gilbert Sutherland, London

TestimonialI was very happy with the drain service I received from Multi-Trade.
