CCTV drain surveys

Are you buying a new home, considering moving offices or looking to carry out work on your existing property? If so, it’s important to consider the drainage that provides vital infrastructure to the building.

We can help you to get a clear and accurate picture of your drainage, so you can make the best possible decisions when it comes to your purchase, extension or refurbishment project.

Our surveying services include:

Homebuyers’ CCTV surveys

Get the full picture of the condition of the property you’re about to buy.

We know that purchasing a house is a huge commitment; you can relieve some of the pressure and feel confident that you’re making the right decision by understanding its infrastructure.

We’ll perform a camera survey and provide you with an extensive report of our findings, offering recommendations as necessary and a full quotation in the event that any remedial work is required.

Party-wall drain surveys

Give your neighbours the peace of mind they need (and the council the evidence they need) when you’re planning refurbishment on your property.

We’ll assess whether your drainage is currently running well before you start your project, so any potential problems that are present before you build cannot be attributed to the work you’re doing.

We’ll then help you take the first step in applying for planning permission, serving notice to your neighbour and achieving consent to continue by carrying out a professional CCTV drain survey that’s used to create a detailed report.

Drain mapping

Gain planning permission and avoid costly mistakes by discovering where your drains are and how they’ve been laid.

We use the latest and most effective equipment, so we can provide you with a comprehensive report on the location and depth of your drains, without the need for digging.

We were lucky enough to have George attend to replace a manhole cover for us. He did a really great job and was so patient with my son who (from a safe distance) talked at him non-stop while he was completing the work!After George left, our son, said it was really nice to talk to someone new. He's been craving interaction since lockdown started and George was so good listening and chatting with him. He's a credit to a an extremely helpful, efficient company. An absolute gent!

Thank you very much Drain Surgeons. After some initial confusion as to the reason I called you, you came up trumps and provided me with a good technical survey and a thorough understanding of the nature of my problem with underground water and, most important, a solution

I used Drain Surgeons for the first time this year in February to empty my tank, Customer service on the phone was perfect, the website is comprehensive, detailed and very lrofessional, i really liked the text message that was sent to me about an hour before the engineer arrived, Stuart Taylor did the job- fantastic young man, polite , engaging, clean and very thorough with the tank, this is my favourite company by far and perfectly reasonable fees for the job they have to do, it’s thumbs up from me, a big thank you to an honest and reputable company.

Outstanding service from the first call to book the job with Roxy to a heads up call from Steve the driver to say when he would arrive and confirm directions. Came when they said they would; did the job; quick, tidy and efficient. There is another company much closer to us (between Rowstock and Wantage) but for speed, service, reliability and efficiency I would recommend Drain Surgeons every time.

From the registration plates on the vehicles to the attitude of the operatives Drain Surgeons are 100% focused on delivering (or should that be removing) what the customer needs. Informative, professional, tidy, and making sure that the job gets done. Our tanks had not been emptied for at least 35 years, but probably not for 60+, and were jammed full. The 1st tanker was one of the smaller vehicles, but enough was eventually sucked away for the drains to no longer back up. The second vehicle was bigger, and we spent some time just trying to get up close to the building, even before work began. The guys spent as much time as was needed to get the job done, with no time watching, and persevered when things looked difficult. They gave good advise, and will be on our regular call back list for sure. Well done and thanks. D and K

Living on a pedestrian only island in the river Thames it can be hard to get services such as septic tanks emptied. Luckily as a community we were able to hire Drain Surgeons who were able to run very long pipes over the bridge and to empty our tanks. Pipes would easily have had to be 500 meters in length so not an easy job. Very happy with the service. Thanks!

We have used Drain Surgeons twice in our business and each time the service was excellent, they were there when they said they would be, they explained what they would do and made sure we were happy with the level of work that was carried out, only charging for work that needed to be done with total communication from the beginning to the end, very professional and friendly staff always very happy to answer questions, would highly recommend, excellent service.
