Why would I need a CCTV Drainage Survey from a specialist?
You may wish to check the structural condition of a drain, levels of siltation levels, obstructions, tree root mass and pipeline routes.
Filling in the form above will give you a list of Drainage Experts who can help you. The estimates you will receive are for the cost to visit a property, inspect the drains and where relevant produce a report. These estimates are from local Specialists who cover your area. In each case the price assumes that there is adequate access to the drains, usually via manhole covers. It may be that some excavation will be required to gain access. If this is the case, each specialist will usually have an additional price for this (at an hourly rate). It may be that jetting to clean the drain will be required before a CCTV Survey can be undertaken. It is important to identify and agree the various charges before work commences. Sometimes the resulting report will identify the need for maintenance or repair work. In each case an indication of possible cost will usually be noted in the report.
For surveys of cess pools and septic tanks, a means of inspection is often not straight forward and again it is important to discuss the likely costs in detail before agreement is made to proceed.
There are no widely recognised accreditation programs setting standards in the industry in the UK. There are many contactors who provide a good level of service and they recognise the need to introduce standards, following through with training courses and accreditation programs. One such organisation is the National Association of Drainage Contractors (NADC) www.nadc.org.uk The NADC operate an accreditation service and some contractors have completed their training courses and obtained accreditation.This is welcomed and we hope that this process will continue and that it will ultimately benefit both the drainage contractors and their customers.
