A CCTV drain inspection uses a highly advanced closed-circuit television system that is deployed into piping that is otherwise normally hard to reach. the high-end cameras can spot defects and deterioration and also provide a full structural integrity report, more info on how the footage is used can be found here.

Why a CCTV Drain inspection is effective

When it comes to unearthing any issues hidden within your drainage pipes, a CCTV camera inspection utilises technology that allows you to see all imperfections and/or structural damage within the pipe being inspected.

The CCTV cameras can provide a high-resolution clear image of the objects or damage responsible for the blockage, which then makes it easier for experts to identify the most suitable solution.

With this technology, any imperfections and damage within the structure of the drainpipe can be located and inspected visually with ease. For a more detailed explanation of How a CCTV inspection provides an overall pipe condition report, check out our services page.

Aside from accurate and clear imagery, another benefit of CCTV drain inspections is that Allpipe Technologies have a range of CCTV camera sizes, meaning we are able to inspect everything from small drain pipes to large sewer pipes.

The diagnosis is not only quick, but also extremely accurate. Experienced technicians use the technology to produce a crystal-clear image of the overall internal pipe structure and are thus able to detect any problems in real time. In addition to this, the inspection process is recorded and can show you exactly what went wrong.

The CCTV drain inspection not only helps with identifying the current issue but can also give an indicator on any future issues that may arise later and act as a preventative measure.
