Professional CCTV Camera Drain Inspections

Are you consistently dealing with blocked drains without finding a real solution for the problem? Alpha Plumbing offers professional CCTV camera drain inspections to get to the root of the problem with the least amount of hassle or discomfort to the owner of the property. In most cases, plumbing pipelines are hidden and out of sight, making it difficult to follow the pipeline exterior. By utilising a CCTV camera, we can follow the pipeline from an interior point of view, giving us access to locate the issue and assess the structural integrity of the drain’s pipelines.

How Does It Work?

We insert a CCTV camera that is attached to a flex rod into the problematic pipeline and follow it while having eyes on the interior structure of the pipe. When it comes to drains, unnecessary excavations will run up the costs of finding, repairing, or replacing problematic sections that cause drain blocks. With our CCTV drain inspection, we can locate the problem without any excavation. The camera sends us a live feed so that we can accurately locate the fault before considering any excavation. Therefore, this method can save time and money in the process of identifying the problem and getting it fixed.

Identifying the Problem

Blocked drains and sewers can be caused by a variety of problems, ranging from cracked pipes to tree roots. By following the interior of the pipeline with a CCTV camera, the structural integrity of the pipes can be assessed as well to determine if there are any problematic areas that could cause trouble down the road. Underground piping can be blocked by tree roots that penetrated the drain system over time. Once the camera has detected the problem, we can determine the most cost-effective and functional solution to repair it and ensure that your drain or sewer problems are a thing of the past.

We can also accurately track the location and depth of the CCTV camera once it locates the problematic area. You can expect some excavating to physically reach the pipeline, which will result in some repair work afterwards. With an accurate assessment on the problem and the location, you can trust that Alpha Plumbing will give you the most cost-effective solution to address the drain block, whether it requires jet-blasting or sewer pipe replacement. Either way, we can be of service to take care of the block for you.

Jet-Blasting or Pipe Replacement?

Jet-blasting utilises a flexible lance that projects water at high levels of pressure directly into the pipeline. This method is useful for clearing stubborn blocks and flush out debris from the interior area of the pipelines. If the structural integrity is compromised, the specific section of that pipeline might need replacement. We can assist with both jet-blasting and sewer pipe replacements, starting with a thorough CCTV drain inspection to accurately locate the problem, its depth, and its location.
