How Is A CCTV Drain Inspection Carried Out?

The inspection is carried out using a long cable, on the end of which is mounted a video camera. We lift the inspection cover of your drainage pipes, then feed the cable along the length of your pipe. As the cable passes down the pipe, the camera records the condition of the pipe walls. Our cable is marked with measurements along its length, which allows us to work out the location of the footage.

The process is non-invasive and causes minimal disruption.

Why Do I Need A CCTV Drain Inspection?

A CCTV drain inspection is an essential part of routine maintenance for any property owner. While many people only think to have their drains cleaned when there is a clog or other problem, regular inspections can help to identify potential issues before they become major problems.

A CCTV drain inspection involves sending a small camera down the drain to get a close-up look at the condition of the pipe. This can help to identify things like cracks, blockages, and leaks. In some cases, the camera may also be able to identify tree roots that have infiltrated the pipe. By having a regular CCTV drain inspection, you can avoid the cost and hassle of major repairs by catching problems early on.

How Often Should I Have A CCTV Drain Inspection?

A CCTV drain inspection is a vital part of keeping your drains clear and free-flowing. But how often should you have one? The answer depends on a number of factors, including the age of your drains, the type of drainage system you have, and the amount of use your drains get.

Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to have a CCTV drain inspection at least once a year. This will help to identify any potential problems early on, before they have a chance to cause serious damage. If your drains are particularly old or prone to blockages, you may need to have an inspection more frequently.

Likewise, if you live in an area with heavy rainfall or frequent flooding, an annual inspection is essential. By having a regular CCTV drain inspection, you can rest assured that your drains will continue to function properly for years to come.

Signs Of A Water Leak

What Type Of Problems Can A CCTV Inspection Pick Up?

Some drainage problems take years to reach a point where they cause problems. The aim of the CCTV inspection is to spot issues at an early stage before they begin to cause problems. This allows timely remediation work to be carried out. The type of issues that we come across include:

  • Worn pipes, including cracked or chipped pipes, or pipes with a compromised internal layer
  • Tree roots that have penetrated into the pipe
  • Subsidence that is putting pressure on a pipe
  • Evidence of build-up in the pipe
  • An uneven interior, making it more likely that unwanted build-ups will occur

If you notice any of these issues, please get in touch and we will be happy to come out and assess the situation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our technicians recommend having your drains examined with a high-tech visual system every five years. If you happen to be buying a property, we recommend having a CCTV drain inspection carried out before you make the purchase.
A long cable with a camera attached to it is fed into your pipelines to record the inside condition of the pipe walls. The cable is measured out—so that any blemishes on the inside of the pipe can easily be found and identified.

Drain inspections are used for multiple reasons, for example, you may have a drain inspection every five years to ensure there’s nothing wrong with your current system. If you’ve purchased an older property, you may have a drainage inspection to pre-empt any problems. Finally, if you have a problem with your drainage, whether a leak is suspected or wear and tear, a drain inspection can help to diagnose the problem.

Typically, CCTV inspections use a specifically designed camera on a long, flexible cable. This cable is fed along the entire length of your drainage system, recording visual information about the condition of your pipework. This cable is marked by distance, making it easy to spot the location of any faults we find.

In the case of standard inspections for recently-purchased homes or every five years, we conduct our inspection and aim to examine the results properly within the timeframe we provide. For emergencies, such as a potential leak, our trained professionals review footage as quickly as possible to identify any problems. This practice allows us to make repairs as swiftly as possible, minimising cost and damage.

The report from a CCTV inspection typically includes complete footage of the pipework as recorded by our camera and notes about any problems or issues with the pipework we’ve spotted. From there, you can decide whether to conduct work to renovate or replace pipework that has signs of wear, tear, build-up or subsistence.

We conduct CCTV drain inspections on the Gold Coast for various reasons. A suspected leak is a situation where a swift diagnosis can prevent further damage or future issues. However, if you don’t suspect a leak, we can still offer a routine drain inspection to spot any problems before they lead to leaking or failure.

Using a drain inspection as a proactive service instead of a reactive one can be valuable in reducing plumbing costs overall. For example, our inspections can provide insight into minor issues in the pipework that are an affordable fix instead of waiting for the signs of more serious failure to appear.

Surveys for the average home can take anywhere from 2-6 hours, depending on the amount of pipework and the complexity of your system. When we provide a free quote for our services, we’ll also be able to offer a general timeframe for conducting our inspection on-site.

Drainage surveys and drain inspections are used interchangeably to describe the same inspection process. We can also carry out visual surveys of external pipework alongside your CCTV inspection to ensure a thorough overview of the condition of your plumbing.

The best person to conduct CCTV drain inspections is a trained professional. Our qualified Gold Coast Leak Detection team has the training and skills to conduct fast, effective surveys and diagnose the resulting footage expertly.
