Why have a Drain Survey?

A1 Drains are a Dublin based drainage company who carry out many CCTV drain surveys in Dublin every day. CCTV drain surveys can answer so many of your drainage problem questions. Over time, drains can deteriorate, fracture and eventually collapse if they are not maintained correctly. Deterioration of a main drain may take several years and is a result of a number of factors such as ground movement, poor construction and even tree root penetration. First indications of a major drain problem quite often materialise as frequent and excessive blockages.

We have a range of options which can survey a main drain line and even pass through a toilet pan to determine the source of a problem when you experience repeated drain blockages. We can carry out a CCTV drain survey to either determine the condition of the drainage system or to assist the engineers to clear a blocked drain.

Benefits of a Drain Survey

We can also carry out surveys prior to the purchase of a property, the construction of an extension or to locate a persistent problem the has been affecting you over and over again. The investment in the cctv drain surveys is quickly recouped by the cost savings on any maintenance or repairs as it’s easy to target the quickly and precisely, with the correct method first time. On completion, we will provide you with the following:

  • A full cctv drainage survey condition report
  • An outline plan for any drainage works required
  • CCTV Drain Survey Video footage (on USB Data Stick or by Email)
  • Our recommendation on how to repair any drain defects

Following on from the drain survey, we can provide estimates for any remedial drain repair work needed. This could include the excavation or relining of the drain if necessary, or to carry out a deep clean or a drain de-scale.

Drain Inspections

The cctv drain camera system can be used to carry out drain inspections of the internal down pipes or soil stacks to help trace cracks or defects in the drainage system which could eventually cause leaks or further drain blockages.
