What is a CCTV Drain Survey Report?

If you are having problems with your drains, then the drains will need a full inspection, using a camera. This will help plumbers and engineers to find the route of the problem, causing the blockage in your drains.

Once the issues are identified, a solution can be made to stop the blockage and prevent it from happening again. These inspections must be carried out by a trained and qualified professional within the industry.

After the inspection has been completed, a report will be made to show what the problem was, where the problem was, what caused the problem, and the best way to solve the problem and stop it happening in the future.

After the inspection has been completed, a report will be made to show what the problem was, where the problem was, what caused the problem, and the best way to solve the problem and stop it happening in the future.

This CCTV Drain Survey Report includes video evidence for both before and after the job is completed as proof to show that the problem has gone. It also includes information about the pipe itself, including the direction of the water flow.

How Does a Drain Camera Work?

Drain cameras are used to assist plumbers in looking into the drainage system to see what is going on. Different brands of cameras are used to identify different types of problems, depending on where and what the problem is, and how big or small it is.

The drain camera itself is then attached to a cable with a torch on to ensure everything will be visible. Once the camera is lowered into the drainage system, using the cable, when a problem is identified, a signal will be sent to show the inspector where exactly the problem is.

The live video created by the camera will then be recorded to help the plumber identify how the problem was caused, and how to solve it. This live video footage may also be shown as proof during the CCTV Drain Survey Report.

Who is Responsible for Blocked Drains?

The owner of the drains is responsible for the upkeep and repairs. If you are a tenant, it is your responsibility to tell your landlord about any problems with your drains, and then it is their responsibility to get it sorted.

However, this will depend on the signed agreement when you moved into the property. Speak to your landlord if you are unsure.

If the drains are between you and your neighbour, then these are usually maintained by the local water company or shared between you both.

If this causes a dispute, get in touch with your local authorities, and they will be able to find out who's responsibility the damage is and get it sorted for you.

How do I Know if my Drains are Blocked?

There are many signs to look out for when it comes to blocked drains. Many of these signs are obvious and easy to identify, but if you are unsure, get in touch with an expert. Here are a few of the signs to look out for:

Flushing the Toilet

When you flush the toilet, if the water rises in the bowl to an unusual level, then there is a problem with your drainage. As soon as you spot this sign, get in touch with a professional as it could cause flooding.

Smell

If your drains give off a foul odour, then this is usually a sign of a blocked drain. The smell is caused by food or sewage that is blocked in your drains. The smell will continue to get worse, so get in touch with an expert plumber.

Water Drainage

After you have done the washing up and you pull the plug out, if the water takes a really long time to drain then it's most likely you have a blockage. This blockage is usually caused by food being drained down the plughole, so make sure all leftover food goes in the bin.

Sounds

When you are draining water, if you hear any gurgling sounds coming from the drains, then this is another sign you have a blocked drain. If you are unsure, please get in touch with a professional as they can point you in the right direction.

How do I Clear a Blocked Drain?

There are many ways you can clear a blocked drain at home. For a common blockage you may be able to use a DIY method to dislodge the problem.

If the problem persists, then you have a serious blockage that requires professional assistance.

Here are some of the methods for a common blockage:

Method 1: Drain Snake

You can buy drain snakes from any hardware store, and they do come in useful. The wire is pushed down the drain and rotated to catch the cause of the blockage.

Method 2: Hot Water

Sometimes, pouring boiling water down your drain will help to unblock it. Usually, vinegar or baking soda are added to create a reaction, causing the blockage to break down.

Method 3: Maintenance

The best way to stop your drains from blocking is to keep on top of the maintenance. This can be done by using the above methods every now and again or buying some drain unblocking products from your local hardware store.

Although these methods are quick, simple and easy, the safest and best way to clear blocked drains is to call an expert. They are able to find the route of the problem and know the best ways solutions to get rid of the blockage and prevent it from happening again in the future.


How Much Does it Cost to Clear a Clogged Drain?

For example, the worse or larger the problem is, the more work needs to be done, and therefore the cost will be higher. The cost could be anywhere between £60 to £1000.
