Benefits of CCTV Drain Surveys

CCTV drain surveys can be highly effective for identifying drainage issues and assessing blockages. These surveys use specialized equipment and cameras to capture high-resolution images and videos of the inside of drain pipes so that this can be evaluated by a professional. But what are the benefits of CCTV drain surveys, especially in comparison to standard drain surveys?

What are the benefits of CCTV drain surveys?

There are a number of advantages and benefits of CCTV drain surveys, and these include: 

  • Increased safety
  • Saving money
  • Improved accuracy and efficiency 
  • Ease of problem identification 
  • Monitor the effectiveness of repairs

CCTV drain surveys can increase safety 

Increased safety is among the most important advantages of CCTV drain surveys. The manual excavation or use of specialised instruments required by conventional techniques of checking subsurface drain systems can be risky and time-consuming. In contrast, CCTV drain surveys do not require human excavation because the cameras and other equipment are put inside the pipes, lowering the risk of worker harm or injury. This also means that drains can be accessed easily, especially those that have limited space or access points.

Save money with CCTV drain surveys 

Cost reductions are another important advantage of CCTV drain surveys. Using excavation equipment is a common component of traditional drain examination techniques, although this is actually quite expensive and time-consuming. On the other hand, excavation is not necessary with CCTV drain surveys, and this leads to significant financial savings. In  addition, the cameras employed in these surveys can diagnose issues more quickly and precisely, lowering the need for follow-up visits and reducing costs even further.

Improve accuracy 

Another reason to choose CCTV drain surveys is the increase in accuracy, precision and effectiveness of drain inspections and maintenance. The cameras’ high-resolution pictures give a clear view of the inside of drain pipes, making it possible to carry out maintenance and repair tasks more successfully and with greater accuracy.  Before any problems or issues create substantial damage or disturbance, the cameras can locate and identify these, including finding blockages, fissures, and other damage.

CCTV drain surveys can identify the problem 

The capacity to quickly locate issues is another advantage of CCTV drain surveys. The technology included into the cameras used in these assessments enables exact mapping of the locations of issues.  This data can be utilised to plan upcoming maintenance and upgrades as well as to prioritise maintenance and repair work. This can be incredibly beneficial and is another reason why CCTV drain surveys can help to save money and reduce costs. 

Monitor the effectiveness of repairs with CCTV drain surveys 

CCTV drain surveys can also be used to assess how well maintenance and repair work is operating. With CCTV drain surveys it is possible to confirm that maintenance or repair work was carried out to a high standard and that the drains are operating efficiently by re-inspecting drain pipes after the repairs or maintenance have been completed. This gives comfort and helps to guarantee that the drains will last for many years to come.
