C.C.TV Drain Inspection Camera

The correct diagnosis of a sewer pipe or drainage system blockage is crucial to achieving a fast and effective solution.

Our Closed Circuit Television Drain Camera is inserted into a sewer or storm water access point, allowing blockages and other damage to be precisely located and identified. The camera can save considerable mess and cost by avoiding extensive excavation work.

Some of the benefits of a CCTV drain camera inspection:

  • It will considerably reduce the overall cost of a drain repair through accurate diagnosis.
  • It can greatly reduce damage to your property from excavation works.
  • It can reveal potential drainage problems before they become a major issue.

If you are considering buying a property we recommend arranging a drain inspection. You may avoid the shock of of discovering major drainage pipe issues.

High Pressure Water Drain Cleaning

Many drains and sewers can be unclogged using very high-pressure water jets to clear obstructions. High-pressure water jetting clears blocked drains without the need for harmful chemicals or excavation of the pipes.

Water jetting can almost completely remove years of accumulated grease, detergents, dirt, and mineral deposits built up within drainage systems, restoring them to their free-flowing capacity.

In cases where water blasting alone will not unclog the drain, we have other specialised tools to cut through tree roots and other solid matter.

The use of high-pressure water jetting to unclog drains is reasonably common, however, incorrect management of the process can actually lead to further pipe damage.

WL Chivers Plumbing technicians are highly trained and competent in the operation of our high-tech water jetting equipment.

No Dig, Pipe and Drain Relining

No dig, pipe and drain relining is a technique used to repair damaged drains and sewers. After your drain has been unclogged, damaged sections can be repaired by pipe relining. It involves the insertion of resin directly into the old drain. The resin bonds to the inside of the old pipe and hardens to form a new pipe within the old.

There are many benefits to no dig pipe relining:

  • No need for excavation work means lower cost and less disruption.
  • Restores full-flowing capacity.
  • Prevents future tree root incursion.
  • Allows repairs to otherwise inaccessible drains, such as those under a building.
  • May be used to repair entire pipes or damaged sections only.
  • Environmentally friendly, stronger and more durable than original pipes.
