CCTV Drain Surveys London


CCTV Drain Surveys in London from £140 + VAT

CCTV Drain Surveys LondonAt J Snow Drainage London we provide CCTV drain surveys in London, 7 days a week at affordable rates. A CCTV drain survey can give you a reliable, documented analysis of your system, and any issues that they may currently be experiencing. In the past you would need a large scale excavation to find this information, but now, with modern technology, it can be done quickly and efficiently. By using a sophisticated piece of CCTV equipment we can quickly inspect the drains system & identify any problems. Whether that be a suspected broken or collapsed pipe, or perhaps to help trace an old drain to add a new drain, a CCTV survey can usually provide the answer. It can also be used to help find damp, or to investigate drainage problems in home buyer surveys. You have to remember that 70% of the drainage system in London is more than 100 years old.


Our drain surveyors push the CCTV camera down to inspect the drain, either via a manhole or a rodding access point. All of our cameras are self-levelled, and they show in full colour with an automatic on screen meter reading display.


Once the CCTV drainage survey is complete, we aim to produce the written report within 2-4 working days unless agreed otherwise. Upon request, we can send the written report within 24 hours at an additional cost. Normally this service is requested with homebuyer drainage surveys to speed up exchanging contracts etc. The CCTV footage can be sent via Dropbox link online, or by DVD through the post.

Drain Surveys London

Thinking of buying a property ? A pre purchase CCTV drain survey could save you a small fortune.

At J Snow Drainage London, we understand that one of the biggest commitments you could ever make involves the decision to buy your own home. The process is simple enough, in the end a surveyor decides that the property is fit for habitation. What the surveyor doesn’t tell you is that they have a disclaimer that directly involves your potential new drainage system, because they can’t survey what they can’t see.


This means that you could take a risk with the potential drainage system of the property, or you could use a CCTV drain survey to your advantage. By having a professional drains inspection yourself, you can save yourself both money and time. The last thing you want is to move into a property only to find out you have a series of collapsed pipes just a few months later. So we highly recommend having your drains professionally surveyed by our engineers before you proceed with the purchase.


Drain Surveys – A Ratty Issue

Drain Survey LondonIt’s common knowledge that where there are people, there are unfortunately rats, and there are a lot of people in London. The very thought of a rat entering your property is enough to scare most people, and if you notice anything of that nature you should contact us immediately. The quicker a problem like this is dealt with, the better. Rats frequently use damaged, or redundant drainage systems to enter properties.


Using a CCTV drainage survey we can look at your drain system in great detail. This allows us to see any single point of entry that a rat could potentially use. Rats can fit through the tiniest of gaps, so it takes a highly skilled engineer to spot the problem quickly, and deal with it efficiently. One of the most common causes of rat infestation in London involves drains that are redundant, and simply haven’t been completely capped off.


There are plenty of solutions that we can offer you if we do find that your rat infestation is caused by your drainage system, so please don’t worry. Make a query today using our contact us page and we’ll get back to you within the hour.


Tracing your drainage system’s history:

For most buildings in London, the drain systems don’t have plans that are readily available as and when you need them. This is because most of the information would now be outdated or inaccurate. As additions to drainage systems are made over time, no notes are made. So, if you decide you want to add additional features to your drainage system, you may not know what features are already there!


Using our professional CCTV Drain Surveying techniques, we can create an accurate, up to date plan of all of the internal and external pipework that your system contains. We can also offer you impartial advice, or services that you may require.
