What is a CCTV Drain Camera?

A CCTV drain camera, also known as a sewer camera, is a small, waterproof camera that is used to inspect the interior of drains and sewer lines.

It is attached to a flexible cable, which allows it to be inserted into the pipes and navigate through them.

The camera sends live video feed to a monitor, enabling the technician to assess the condition of the pipes and identify any blockages, cracks or other issues.

This technology is extremely helpful in locating problems without the need for costly and invasive digging. It provides a clear visual inspection, allowing for accurate diagnosis and efficient repairs.

Discover Exactly Where the Blockage Is

With today’s technology, using a camera will show exactly the issue whether it be a foreign object that is stuck in the drain, misaligned/broken drains or extensive tree root invasion.

We are able to give our customers a long-term solution in replacing a specific area where the issue occurred without having to do unnecessary excavation due to not being able to pinpoint the problem area exactly.

The Benefits of Sewer Camera Inspection

Sewer camera inspection offers several key benefits when it comes to assessing the condition of your drains.

Firstly, it provides a precise and accurate diagnosis of any issues within your pipes. By visually inspecting the interior of the drains using a CCTV camera, technicians can identify blockages, cracks, root intrusions, or other damage that may be affecting the flow of wastewater.

Another advantage is that inspection using drain cameras is non-invasive. In the past, diagnosing drain problems often required extensive digging or excavation to access the pipes.

However, with drain cameras, the process is much simpler. The camera is inserted into the pipes through an existing access point, eliminating the need for disruptive and costly digging.

Moreover, an inspection camera saves time and money. By pinpointing the exact location and nature of the problem, technicians can develop targeted solutions and avoid unnecessary repairs. This means less time spent on guesswork and more efficient repairs, ultimately reducing the overall costs associated with drain maintenance.

Sewer camera inspection is a valuable tool for maintaining the health of all drains and sewer pipes. It offers accurate diagnosis, non-invasive assessment, and cost-effective solutions. By investing in this technology, you can ensure that your drains are functioning optimally and avoid potential headaches down the line.

Pipe Replacement an Option

Many customers decide that they want to replace that section of pipe rather than continue to regularly have their drains cleared when they can see with the camera what the ongoing cause is.

In the majority of cases it is that tree roots have entered the drain generally through a breakage somewhere in the pipework or leaking sewer pipe collar.

The drain camera is normally inserted into sewer pipes once we have partially cleared the drain and removed any water as it is difficult to focus when the pipe is full of sewage and murky water.
