The drains and sewers beneath your property and land often get overlooked or neglected which increases the likelihood of serious issues developing. Whether it’s a build-up of foreign substances or tree root intrusions, it’s important that the drainage network is well-maintained so that everything remains free-flowing.

For commercial premises and industrial estates, in particular, knowing the conditions and locations of your assets pipe networks should be a priority. Businesses and manufacturers cannot afford downtime, especially if the disruption is caused by major issues such as structural damage and leaking pipes due to a blocked drain. It’s important to have the correct underground drainage system in place so that your business can operate safely and without disruption.

With a pipeline survey, you can determine whether there are any misconfigurations or potential issues. In order to prevent these issues from occurring and to achieve a greater understanding of the locations and conditions of your assets, a CCTV pipeline survey should be incorporated as part of your periodic property maintenance.


How Can CCTV Pipeline Surveys Prevent Problems?

CCTV surveys utilise new technology which enables drains, sewers, and pipes to be thoroughly inspected without the need for excavation. Traditionally, some sort of excavation would be required in order to enter hard-to-access areas. For businesses, this is a major benefit as it’s a non-intrusive procedure and there will be little to no disruption.

The aim of a CCTV survey is to spot defects or problems with your pipes that could pose a potential risk if left unresolved. Based on the comprehensive surveying data, recommendations for remedial actions can then be made in order to resolve any issues. By taking regular precautionary investigations with CCTV surveys, your business can stay on top of any potential drainage issues and you’ll be aware of the conditions at all times.

In addition, if your commercial premise is planning an extension or building work, knowing the exact location of your underground services will help prevent conflicts with pipes. There have been many instances where property developers are discovering that commercial and industrial sites do not have up-to-date reports of the conditions and locations of their pipes which makes it difficult to carry out building works.
