Why CCTV Drainage Inspection is a Great Idea

A CCTV drainage inspection is the fastest and most cost-effective way of inspecting your drains and sewers to identify any current and potential problems in your system. Because drainage systems are usually hidden from view, it can be difficult and expensive to inspect the full pipeline for faults and blockages. But, by using specialised CCTV cameras, the team at Hydrovac can get a full visual inside your pipeline without tearing up floors or breaking down walls.

How Does CCTV Drainage Inspection Work

Using the most up-to-date CCTV drainage equipment, a specialised camera is inserted into your drain system while remotely displaying what it captures on a screen above-ground. At HydroVac, our CCTV drain cameras can:

  • confirm the positions of council pipe by thoroughly mapping the system
  • locate faults, cracks or obstructions in your drainage system from above ground – up to 15 metres deep
  • locate drain issues before they cause damage
  • show angle grades of your pipes

We email the reports to you right away from the site, which means you don’t have to wait around and can choose the next course of action sooner. If there is an issue, we can fix it efficiently to get your drain back to its best working order. Using drain CCTV cameras is also a great way to detect emerging problems and take care of them now before they become a real headache later.

Stormwater Drain Maintenance and Management

CCTV drain cameras can also be used to survey the interior condition of a drainage or stormwater system. A blocked stormwater drain should be considered an emergency, as it can cause flooding. If flooded stormwater is left for too long it can become contaminated, causing a major health risk to you and the environment.

If you suspect you have a blocked stormwater drain, we recommend you act promptly, saving yourself money and limiting the potential damage to your home, surrounding property and the environment. HydroVac provides a fast and efficient 24 hour service, 7 days a week.
