What is a CCTV Drain Survey and when might I need one?

In order to understand the condition of your drains, it’s good to have a clear picture on what’s going on underground using a CCTV Drain Survey

A CCTV Drain Survey is a process used for examining the condition of drainage systems using a remote camera system. Using industry leading technology from iPEK our cameras provide a live feed to our fleet of vehicles whilst recording video footage, capturing still image and recording other important job information.

Underground CCTV technology has become increasingly popular when providing inspection and survey services to underground drains, sewers, culverts and other drainage assets without the need for excavation.

Each Quest CCTV Unit is directly linked to the office and on-board reporting delivers the survey results direct from site to the customer.

Our units can survey pipes and drainage systems from 50mm to 2000mm diameter and up to 300m length in length in one direction. Within our CCTV Drain Survey fleet we also have the versatility of remote/portable equipment for inaccessible locations and floating platforms, for high level flows and trunk sewers.
