Portsmouth CCTV Drain Surveys

One of the major difficulties when it comes to detecting sewer problems is the fact that they are hidden below the surface. This makes it hard to spot problems long before they become serious. However, thanks to advanced CCTV technologies, No1PHD drainage experts can now perform checks on pipes and sewer lines on any drain across Portsmouth without having to dig them up.

How Do We Carry Out CCTV Drain Surveys?

We use remote-controlled camera systems that get deep into the drain systems and send back high definition images to our monitors. This allows our experts to explore areas of weakness in detail before deciding on the method of fixing the problem. With this technology, we can detect a wide range of problems that include:

  • Small cracks on the surface of the pipe
  • Stubborn blockages that seem not to go away
  • Roots that might have entered the sewer line
  • Collapsed sections of the pipe
  • Corrosion, wear and tear
  • The extent of leaks or causes of sudden sewer bursts

Besides, we also check for displaced joints, rodent infestations and build-up of gunk along the interior surface of the pipe.

When you hire our expert drainage teams for a Portsmouth drain survey, we inspect the entire drain system. Then, our experts review all the images with a view of detecting any problems. If we identify a problem, we determine the best fix for the issue. Drain surveys are cost-effective in that they cost your business a fraction of what it would cost to dig up the drain or do blind repairs. Besides, there is minimal disruption of your day-to-day activities as the process takes just a short while.

CCTV Surveys for Preventive Drain Maintenance

CCTV drain surveys are an effective form of drain ‘health check’ for any business. No1PHD recommends scheduled checks of at least once or twice a year, depending on the organisation. A comprehensive inspection helps avoid emergency sewer bursts and overflows that may disrupt your business operations for prolonged periods. It also lowers the cost of possible repairs as issues are detected long before they become big.

CCTV Surveys for Repairs

It is important that our Portsmouth drainage experts know the type and extent of drain or sewer problems before they undertake repairs. Therefore, they may recommend a quick CCTV survey when you report such issues such as leakages, pipe bursts or recurring backflows. The survey offers them an in-depth look at the issue at hand and any other related issue that might not have been detected. As an example, imagine if our experts had been called to unblock a pipe only to find a massive build-up of gunk or multiple root intrusions throughout the sewer line. With a clear picture of what is ailing the drainage system, we offer the best repair solutions such as pipe replacement, high-pressure jet cleaning and CIPP relining.

CCTV Drain Surveys for Property Purchases

If you would like to purchase a plant or property for a new business, or even rent a property for an extended period, it is essential that you know the condition of the drainage system before signing the purchase contract. Damaged drains are sometimes a cause of structural damage to buildings. Therefore, it is crucial that you know if the system is all right. In addition, if there is a need for sewer repairs, you can negotiate the additional cost from the purchase price. Our CCTV drain survey teams for Portsmouth customers carry out the surveys for you and put together a photographic and written report as part of the buyers report.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
