Portsmouth Drain Camera Services

Not every drain blockage is easy to maintain. Sometimes, a seemingly minor problem repeats on itself no matter how tightly you manage your drain cleaning schedule. That’s where CCTV drain camera inspections come in. They can identify problems deep in the drain so that you can seek out a more permanent solution. CCTV drain camera inspections can identify:

  • Deep tree root growth
  • Collapsed drains
  • A severe breakage that has led to deep debris
  • Bad pipe connections

Much like an X-ray or a blood test, a camera inspection can diagnose the problem, thus allowing for a more appropriate fix. No1PHD covers residential and commercial drain camera inspections throughout the Portsmouth region.

How it Works

Most drainage problems are caused by food waste, foreign objects, and hygiene products, but sometimes, the problem occurs deeper in the pipes. Drain inspection cameras can identify drain and sewer damage in a range of different conditions. Some can perform lateral inspections of sewers, while others are built for portability. Reel inspection cameras offer extra cable length, while hand-held alternatives are often cordless. Some work well for indoor drain lines and municipal collection systems. Others have injection-moulded housing to adjust to harsh environments.

Every plumbing camera has its strengths and weaknesses. At No1PHD, we rely on CCTV surveys to identify commercial and residential drainage problems in the Portsmouth region. They’re perfect for industrial compliance, removing the need to break into the plumbing to find blockage causes. This makes diagnosis far less destructive as you won’t need to replace valuable brick and mortar. For this reason, cameras have become the tried-and-trusted solution among Portsmouth municipalities, businesses, home owners and retail spaces. Our fibre optic cameras can be fed all the way through the pipes, around sharp corners and through minor obstacles, even in the presence of water and dirt. Remote visual inspection tools can offer a panoramic view of your pipes, surveying laterally even in sewer pipes. They can identify protrusions, debris, and scale as well as gathering data about misalignments.

Couldn’t have asked for a faster resolution to our drainage conundrum. Nothing was too much for these guys who were brilliant throughout.

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.
