What are the steps involved in a CCTV Drain survey?

  • Camera Insertion: A specialized CCTV camera is inserted into the drain or sewer pipes using a flexible rod or crawler system.
  • Video Recording: The camera records high-quality footage as it navigates through the pipes, capturing details such as pipe condition, blockages, leaks, and joint integrity.
  • Real-time Monitoring: Surveyors monitor the live video feed, documenting any significant findings or areas of concern.
  • Data Analysis: Recorded footage is reviewed and analyzed to identify defects, blockages, or structural issues within the drainage system.
  • Reporting: A comprehensive report is generated, providing detailed information on the drainage system’s condition, including problems, recommended repairs, and maintenance actions.

What equipment set do we use?

Our surveyors utilise CCTV survey cameras, crawlers, access rods and sonar units to examine the drainage systems.

Liverpool Measured Survey has a professional team of surveyors that employs a combination of the latest drainage survey equipment, such as waterproof push rod cameras for driving through the drainage system, and remote crawlers to gain visual access into the obstructed or damaged pipes.

With the access to the drain, our specialists use the CCTV camera to capture the real-time footage of blockages, cracks, collapsed pipes and more. The footage gives an extensive and accurate information for the preparation of a drain survey report on the extent of the drainage problem. Also, our surveys contain important recommendations as regards to maintenance, repairs, replacement, and restoration.
