Drain Report

Our reports include preventive measures to mitigate the risk of future drainage issues.

Ensure the proper functioning and longevity of your drainage infrastructure

Drain specialists carrying out a drain inspection will often first plot the drainage runs. This will mean identifying inspection chambers, which mark changes of direction or gradient and give access to the branches of drains that run between them. The report will note the condition of the chambers and a CCTV camera will pass through the underground pipework.

Most reports will include a site diagram showing the property and the layout of the drains in relation to the property and grounds. The diagram will normally label (number) the inspection chambers to which reference is made throughout the report.  The diagram may indicate the direction of ‘fall’ of the drain which will eventually discharge into the public sewer.

Typical defects noted in these sections include matters such as water holding within the drain; damage to joints; cracks to drain (radial or long); crushed pipework; silt deposits; intrusion by tree or shrub roots; scale etc.

Clients will be alerted to the cause of the problem and will be given a list of recommended actions/repairs. Each recommendation will have a cost attached to it, giving a very clear assessment of your liabilities with regard to the drains.
