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.
