What is a Commercial CCTV Drain Survey?

A CCTV drain survey is a process used to inspect the condition of drains, sewer lines, and other underground infrastructure. A Brighton CCTV drain survey involves the use of a specialised camera to visually inspect the inside of drains and sewer lines. This type of survey is typically used to assess the condition of drains and sewer lines prior to repair or replacement. Commercial CCTV Drain surveys provide a detailed survey of the building’s pipes and sewers to identify problems such as leaks, blockages and problems with the drainage system. Here at Regency Drainage Brighton, we can conduct professional drain CCTV surveys for all types of commercial buildings in and around Brighton. Our Commercial CCTV Surveys include :


Inspection of drains and sewers

A commercial CCTV survey is a technology that we use to inspect sewage systems in commercial settings. The survey results provide information about the condition of your drains, how well they are functioning, and the need for repair and maintenance.

Monitoring of specialist repair works within sewers

Before any repair can be undertaken, the sewer has to be inspected by our specialist. This involves us installing cameras for monitoring during repair works. We will then give you a detailed report detailing what work needs to be done, how it will be carried out and gives a timescale for completing such works.

Monitoring of sewer cleaning

As the infrastructure component of the larger CCTV survey, water-related issues can be easily picked up by our camera. Since sewer cleaning services are all about draining your pipes, this service will help you catch what needs to be monitored during our inspection and then plan for a timely and efficient cleaning process.

Blockages in Your Drains

The primary function of a CCTV survey is to locate blockages in your drains. A blockage can be caused by many things, including tree roots, grease, and debris. Once the blockage is located, our team will use high-pressure water jets to remove it.

Condition Surveys

A condition survey is a report that details the current condition of a property. This type of survey is typically used when someone is considering purchasing a property, or when a lender is considering providing financing for a purchase. The survey will detail any existing damage to the drainage system, as well as any potential areas of concern that could lead to future problems.

Pre Purchase drain CCTV Surveys

Regency Drainage Brighton can conduct a pre-purchase CCTV inspection that will reveal any structural flaws such as fractures, deteriorated joints, roots, and sags in the drainage system of a property you are thinking of buying.

Following the on-site survey, you will receive a detailed hard copy report with all pertinent information regarding the drainage network, including diameter, material, depth, and, most importantly, the root cause of the problem. You can also request for a DVD or USB stick with the survey in addition to the soft copy of the report.

Build Over Surveys

It may be necessary to do a build-over drain survey in order to obtain approval from your local authority if you want to carry out building work in the vicinity of your sewage system.

Most local authorities require a build-over-drain survey report, which we provide. For additional information or to schedule a building work drain survey, please contact our team now.

Post Building Works Surveys

A post-construction survey is an add-on service performed after a construction project is completed. The goal of this report is to summarise the state of your drainage prior to and after the construction project in order to identify if any significant changes have occurred as a result of the construction.

Dilapidation Surveys

A dilapidation drain survey is a thorough examination of the state of drainage components and systems like broken soakaways, as well as minor wear and tear. A dilapidation survey will provide a condition baseline and put forth the cost of essential repairs if remediation expenditures are included.

As you can see, there are just so many CCTV drain survey services we offer. If you are worried about the state of your drainage system, or simply want to catch problems before they escalate into expensive repairs, we are the ones to call.

What Is Involved in Our Commercial CCTV Drain Survey?

The first step in any commercial CCTV inspection is to find where the drains are located. Once located, the next step is to investigate the drainage channel using industry-leading technology.

This technology allows for a complete and thorough inspection of the entire drainage channel. After the investigation is complete, we would create a plan for fixing any problems detected.

Our drainage experts will inspect the drains to ensure they are clear and allow water to flow freely. Below is what a typical commercial drain inspection should be:

Inspection of deep shafts and confined spaces

Commercial CCTV drain surveys are also conducted by our specialists to inspect underground level pipes and shafts, which are more difficult to access than others. By identifying the extent of problems, Our industrial foreman can prioritise repairs.

Inspection of service ducts

We may also require inspection of your service ducts if there is a risk of water entering the building through them. This can happen due to a crack in a pipe, frozen pipes etc. Inspecting service ducts with the help of our skilled CCTV drain technician is imperative if you want to identify leaks, cracks and other defects. A thorough inspection will also allow you to identify what problems may have existed in the past and whether they have been properly corrected.

What Do We Look For in Our CCTV Drain Surveys?

When we conduct a CCTV drain inspection, we’re looking for blockages, cracks and fractures, vermin infestations, tree root intrusions, loose pipe connections etc.

Cracks and Fractures

During our CCTV drain surveys, we look for any cracks or fractures in your drains. These can occur over time due to normal wear and tear, but they can also be caused by things like tree roots growing into your drains. Cracks and fractures can cause all sorts of problems, including blocked drains, so it’s important to get them fixed as soon as possible.

Vermin Infestations

One of the things that we look for during our CCTV drain surveys is vermin infestations. Vermin, such as rats and mice, can cause a great deal of damage to your drainage pipes, and they can also spread disease. If we find evidence of vermin infestation, we will recommend that you have your drains professionally cleaned and disinfected.

Tree Root Intrusions

We look for tree root intrusions when we perform CCTV drain surveys. Tree roots can cause a great deal of damage to drains and sewer lines, so it is important to identify them early and take steps to remove them.

Loose Pipe Connections

One of the things our CCTV drain surveyors look for is any loose pipe connections. This is because loose pipe connections can cause all sorts of problems, including:

  • Water leaks
  • Flooding
  • Property damage
  • Health and safety hazards

This is a great idea if you want to ensure that your drainage system is in good working order and that there are no clogged drains or other problems that could cause serious issues for your business.

  1. A commercial CCTV inspection can help to identify any existing or developing issues with your drainage system. This can include anything from minor problems such as broken pipes or displaced joints to more serious issues such as tree root mass or longitudinal cracking. By having a detailed survey of your drains, you can be sure that any problems are identified early and that the right solution can be put in place to fix them.
  2. A commercial CCTV inspection can also be used to investigate other concerns that you may have about your property’s drains. For example, if you think that there may be builders rubble blocking your drains, a drain inspection can be used to confirm this and to find out exactly where the problem is located. This can then be used to deliver the most cost-effective solution possible.
  3. A commercial CCTV inspection can also be used to provide valuable information to your mortgage company or insurance provider. If you have shared drains with other businesses, a drain inspection can show them exactly where the problem lies and what needs to be done to fix it. This can save you money on future insurance claims or mortgage repayments.
  4. A commercial CCTV inspection can also be used to give you peace of mind when buying a new property. If you are concerned about drainage issues at a property you are interested in purchasing, a drain inspection can give you the information you need to make an informed decision about whether or not it is the right property for you.

If your drains are found to be in good working order, you may be eligible for a discount on your rates bill. This could potentially save you hundreds of pounds each year, making it well worth having a drain inspection completed on a regular basis

CCTV cameras are able to survey access points to your drainage channel with minimal disruption allowing you to identify any potential issues, including pipe leaks and blocked drains quickly and easily. Without touching the drain lines, this simple inspection can capture images of what looks like a screen, which will allow you to view video footage of the entire drainage. These non-disruptive solutions are the best way to identify serious and minor problems throughout your drainage system.
  7. CCTV drainage surveys help the property owner to have a comprehensive view of the drainage system from one point to another. It gives you an idea about the drainage system and its extent, which allows for proactive maintenance of the drain pipe.
  8. CCTV provides a quick, easy and cost-effective way to survey your drainage system. This can be especially useful if you own a commercial property such as a store, restaurant or office building.
