Folkestone CCTV Drain Surveys

Our drain survey services cover residential and commercial premises.

We give you a mapping of your drains and reports. Our surveys are in-depth and accurate.

CCTV Drain surveys pinpoint the issues with drainages, such as leaking or cracked pipes. It will also show blockages, backed-up sewage, or tree roots growing into the pipelines.

A survey will provide vital information about the drainage system for home buyers. We advise you only buy a property if you ask for a complete drain survey first.

Our certified CCTV surveys last for five years. Survey reports can be offered within five years as part of a selling pack, meaning they retain their value for five years. 

A drain survey should always be considered a valid expense. Property investors believe the survey is one of the most critical parts of the buying process. Inadequate drainage systems are often the reason for major structural defects in construction, including subsidence.

How To Diagnose A Blocked Drain

You may suspect you have a blockage in your Folkestone home’s drains system, but you’re not 100% sure. You need to look out for the common signs. Here are some indications to watch out for:

Undesirable Odours

Drain and sink blockages often produce foul-smelling odours. Debris slowly decomposes, which creates an unpleasant smell.

Slow Drainage

If you have a blocked pipe, the water will not drain as fast as usual. The water must work its way around the blockage, so it is slower.

Higher Water Levels

One way to determine a clogged drain is if you see any water levels rise. For example, when you flush your toilet, the water rises before it drains.

Gurgling Sounds 

If any odd gurgling sounds come from drains and plugs, it could be due to a blockage. The gurgling sound happens because air is trapped in the drain and escapes when you run water.
