DDMS Surveys

Comprehensive DDMS services from specialists within the field.

What is a DDMS Survey?

DDMS surveys or drainage data management system surveys (which used to be called HADDMS) is a key procedure carried out amidst the threat of a blockage in sewerage or piping. Essentially, it’s an investigation around the sewage system in order to find any potential weaknesses that could lead to blockages or flooding or, if blockages/ flooding is already present, an investigation into the direct cause whilst looking to source a solution. This process is carried out using a range of high-tech machinery such as our remote CCTV survey robots that can be driven into areas too small for a regular person to traverse while providing a live feed to our team outside.

Understanding the Importance of DDMS

When exposed to regular usage, sewage systems start to age and break down. When sewage systems are well built and maintained, they can last decades at a time requiring a lower level of management. However, this can make them more prone to blockages, piping damage or even flooding.

There can be any range of reasons as to why your sewage system may start to fail with constant use, extreme weather or even something as simple as age all usually playing some part.

Based on the results of the last step our team will now present you with the results of the survey with any tips or solutions on how to keep caring for your system or work that can be carried out.

We understand the value of technology in helping us provide the highest quality of service.

Sewage systems – when they do break – become a massive inconvenience to anyone using the property. They can also be quite costly to remedy once issues begin to persist with access to the piping itself being potentially limited making the solution considerably more challenging to implement. Our DDMS surveying services take advantage of the latest technology and are tailored to prevent issues such as this before they can become a problem.

The Importance of Technology

When carrying out work on our client’s drainage systems we don’t always have the space to manoeuvre as we’d like, in instances like this we employ some of our more complex technological tools.

Our Ground Penetrating Radar equipment enables us to reflect radar pulses underground, making it extremely useful and convenient for identifying the underground services.

We also use CCTV survey robots which deliver a live feed of your sewage system in high resolution, ensuring that our team has access to all the information they would have if they were there in person.


How We Use It

In order to check the conditions of the drainage systems and identify any structural damage or wear within the piping, we can use a variety of methodologies depending on your needs. We can also use laser profilers which records and captures the structural intensity of a surface. Through the use of our technology, we are able to provide high quality service even in locations with limited access.
