Pre Home Purchase Drain Surveys

by | Jul 19, 2017 | Plumbing

Before you purchase a home it is a wise decision to have the pipes and drains checked by professionals. You don’t want to have a home you recently bought to already have plumbing issues that need to be repaired. Therefore, by hiring drainage experts they can perform a pre home drain survey for you. Drain surveys in Poole are offered by professionals at an affordable cost. When you have the drains inspected by drainage experts they are able to identify any damages or leaks that may require repairs. This gives you an idea of any extra costs you may need in order to have these plumbing problems resolved either before you buy the home or afterwards.

Purpose of a CCTV Drain Survey

The whole purpose of having a CCTV drain survey done is to find the root to a plumbing problem. These survey procedures are performed by experienced engineers that have state-of-the-art equipment and the proper knowledge of all sorts of plumbing problems. When you have this process done, it can eliminate the cost and the slow option of digging on your property to find the problem. Experts can survey pipes that range from 3 inches up to 60 inches. The tiny camera will detect any blockage within minutes. After the problem has been found a drainage engineer will inform you of the findings and let you know what needs to be done to repair the plumbing problem.

Peace of Mind

Once the drainage engineer has finished the drain run and explained to you the problem, they will offer you a DVD recording of your drain. This is for you to keep in case you want to show the buyer before you purchase the property. You can also view the recording yourself so you can get a better understanding of what the drains look like underground since they are not visible from above ground level. Drainage systems can be maintenance and very complex work that can become costly if it requires excavating areas of land. However, a CCTV drain survey before you purchase a home can be a cost-effective solution and give you peace of mind. Visit us at Canford Drains today for professional services.
