CCTV or closed-circuit television is an establishment’s dream come true. It enables establishments and even homeowners to monitor what’s happening in their vicinity. Just as CCTV is increasingly used in establishments, CCTV has come a long way by being incorporated into drainage services too.
Through the feeding of the tiny CCTV with led lights (for illumination) inside the vacuum of drains, drain inspectors could get a good view of what’s happening inside the drain system. The image feeds are live and are often watched by drain technicians, relining contractors, property owners, building inspectors, and more.
We get it, a CCTV Drain Inspection lets you have a clear view of the inside of the drain, but why should it be necessary before actually digging to repair the drains? Below are some of the points about why you should do a round of CCTV Drain Inspection before fixing a drain.
CCTV Drain Inspection pinpoints the root cause/s of the drainage problem
This is by far the most common reason for performing a CCTV Drain Inspection before the actual repair. CCTV Drain Inspection removes the guesswork on workers and homeowners alike.
A CCTV Drain Inspection helps inspectors gather more information that eventually pinpoints the root of all problems. Upon knowing which causes the issue or issues, the team could draft a budget-friendly yet effective repair method for you.
CCTV Drain Inspections helps discover unseen drainage issues
Even without the obvious symptoms of a problem, there could be unseen cracks, crevices, and holes that might be discovered in the CCTV Drain Inspection process. This gives you the chance to address the small problems of your drains immediately that, if left unchecked, could, later on, lead to headaches.
Have a regular CCTV Drain Inspection on your pipes at least once a year if the household is a busy member of 4 or more people. These annual checkups could save you a lot of money. Instead of paying for a little relining on a little damage, you might pay for a more expensive connection of your pipes.
If you’re a landlord, you’ll get an idea of which tenant has the faulty drain
Proving which tenant has the faulty drain is difficult because landlords can’t see the insides of his building’s drainage system. Logically speaking, depending on a country’s law, a tenant should and could pay for the damage he or she incurred on a building structure. Through the use of a proper CCTV Drain Inspection, a landlord could get evidence to which tenant throws nappies and other things on toilets and sinks.
It would be best if you had a CCTV before repairing a drain to pinpoint who’s going to pay the service fees.
