Home > Drain Inspection Surveys



Ever had a drain that repeatedly blocks? Are you continually spending money to have it cleared?


A drain inspection survey is the quickest way to discover what the problem is with your drains. A camera survey will not only identify the cause of the blockage, but also help detect and prevent any further problems - which if left could prove very costly.


Having a drainage CCTV survey carried out, will help in give you a better understanding and more detailed look at the condition of your drains. This will also provide you with evidence if required for any insurance purposes.


Here at Only Rods & Hoses, we like to use our drain camera after every drain unblock (if accessible), as we feel that this will not only provide us with the details of what is causing the blockage, but also to try and prevent it from happening again.


A drain inspection survey is also very useful for:


  • Bad smells

  • Rodent activity

  • Drain Cleaning

  • Home improvements/Extensions


A very popular drain survey that is carried out is called a pre-house purchase survey. This enables us to provide you with a site plan, depths of manhole chambers, flow direction and recordings of any pipe defects. When it comes to the underground drains, your acting surveyor will only lift the manhole covers (if accessible), to check if they are flowing and the condition of the manhole chamber.


This may seem sufficient enough, but how does this determine if there are any pipe defects underground - like hairline fractures or large open joints caused by tree root intrusion? If missed, this could prove very costly and possibly lead to large excavations across front drives or even inside your new home depending on the drain layout.
