Are Drain Surveys Important?

A drain survey inspection in Brighton is something that you should think about carrying out before you buy a property. CCTV drain surveys will check the drainage pipes and uncover any potential issues with the drains at the property, and you certainly wouldn’t want to be saddled with expensive repairs if the drains are found to be faulty or blocked.

Also, CCTV drainage surveys are usually required when there are concerns about potential flooding or water damage on a property. In many cases, this can be caused by blocked drains or faulty drainage systems. If these problems aren’t sorted out quickly, they can lead to serious damage to the structure of the property, as well as cause health risks for its occupants. Having a drain survey conducted will help to identify any potential problems before they become serious enough to cause significant damage or harm. Even when there aren’t any current problems, it’s still advisable to have your drains surveyed as part of regular maintenance to prevent future drain blockages.

If you think that your house will benefit from a survey of its drainage system, then contact us at Regency Drainage Brighton. CCTV drain surveys could potentially save you thousands of pounds later on, so it’s definitely worth considering. Request a free quote today by calling 01273 257 331

How Does Regency Drainage Brighton Carry Out A CCTV Drain Survey in Brighton?

The first step in conducting drain surveys is usually to carry out a visual inspection of the outside of the property. This will involve looking at any areas where water could potentially enter the building – such as gutters, downpipes and manholes – and assessing their condition.

The next step is generally to carry out an internal inspection of all rooms in the building that may be affected by poor drainage – such as kitchens and bathrooms – using specialist CCTV cameras. These CCTV cameras are able to detect even minor blockages that could cause serious problems if left untreated.

After carrying out these inspections, then our drain surveyor will then produce a detailed written report of our findings and offer recommendations for how best to resolve any issues that have been identified. Once you’ve had your drain survey completed, it’s important that you act on any recommendations made by our drain surveyor without delay.

Depending on what we find during our inspection, we may recommend getting some work done on your drainage system – such as installing new pipes or repairing existing ones – or we may suggest carrying out regular maintenance checks on your drains so that potential problems can be spotted early on and rectified before they cause serious harm or damage to your property. We can also provide you with expert advice on what kind of insurance coverage you should take out for your home in order to protect yourself against expensive repairs should something go wrong with your drains after your initial survey has been completed.

Do you need a build-over drain survey in Brighton?

If you are considering carrying out building works on a property or extension in Brighton, and need to know whether the drains serving your property will need to be adjusted or replaced, you will have to arrange a build-over drain survey.

This type of survey is required when construction activity is planned which might possibly impact an adjoining public sewer. You should submit an application for approval from the local water authority at least 28 days before work starts if this is necessary.

This type of assessment involves a CCTV survey and could call for other tests being conducted to establish the exact condition of the drains today and before any building commences. It may also be needed where drainage works are believed to be within 3 meters of Highways England’s boundary. Additionally, it must be carried out if developments are built in a conservation area in Brighton.
