CCTV Mapping is carried out to ascertain the location, direction and condition of the drains on your property. A specialised drainage camera is used to inspect and trace the drains from the access point on your property.
Like many people, you may not need to think about the condition of your drains until they fail. Drain failure results in extended blockages, flooding and property damage. Mapping of your property will help identify any faults in your drainage system along with allowing you to know where the drains are located on your property.
Large construction works causes vibration and movement in the ground which can affect the drains below. This can turn minor faults in drains into large separations or collapses in the line. Identifying these faults prior to works being carried out are a must, saving you costly repairs and excavation of the finished works.
To carry out CCTV mapping, jetting of the line must be carried out first. This is to clear any waste from line and to give an unobstructed view of the drain. The survey will then be carried out. Once completed you will be given a detailed breakdown of what was found, outstanding faults and advisory notices. You will also receive a plan detailing the layout of the drains on your property.
