By far the most effective diagnostics weapon that MPL Drainage Solutions has in its arsenal is CCTV drain surveys. These allow us to quickly figure out why blocked drains or blocked toilets are causing trouble, and where unblocking / gutter clearing should be carried out to restore order. On this page, we’ve run through a handful of the benefits that CCTV drain surveys offer our clients in Chichester, one of the areas in which we’re most popular.
Money Saving – Some homeowners around Chichester choose to deal with a system prone blocked drains or blocked toilets by regularly pouring in chemical cleaner. This is a short-term and often ineffective solution. What’s more, it’s rather expensive! CCTV drain surveys provide a drainage contractor with all the information they need to figure out exactly what the problem is.
It could be a structural issue, a foreign object or perhaps a problem that calls for intensive gutter cleaning. Getting to the bottom of why your system is prone to blocked drains or blocked toilets, then making precise repairs to get it functioning efficiently, is far more cost efficient than investing in years’ worth of chemical cleaner, all to no avail!
No Excavation – Old school drain surveys involve excavating a section of pipe which then needs to be investigated manually. Needless to say, this can prove massively inconvenient, time consuming and expensive for Chichester homeowners who purely want to know why their system is draining slowly. CCTV drain surveys completely circumvent the need for excavation/digging, as a high-definition camera is inserted down the drain, reporting back to a computer manned by a skilled technician who’ll be able to interpret and analyse the images being fed through.
Accuracy – Because CCTV drain surveys employ the latest technology to explore and map drainage systems, you get an incredibly accurate read-out. This is why many prospective house buyers around Chichester request a CCTV drain survey to be carried out on a property before they commit to buying it. The survey may find that the system is old, neglected and decrepit, meaning work needs to be carried out to avoid years of blocked drains, blocked toilets and the need for regular gutter cleaning. This may influence their decision, as a cheap buy may look slightly less of a steal if the drainage is shot!
