If you’ve tried to unblock an external drain several times but haven’t had any luck, you may have to take a closer look at things. Sometimes drain pipes collapse or fracture, get damaged by tree roots or have bigger blockages further down.
If this is the case, we recommend getting to the source of the problem quickly to stop further damage or flooding. And the best person for the job is a qualified drainage engineer. They’ll use specialist CCTV camera equipment to take detailed images and measurements of the pipework. After completing the CCTV drain survey, they’ll be able to see the cause of the blockage, limescale build-up, cracks and fractures, tree roots and faulty joints or materials. Based on these findings, they’ll recommend the best way forward.
We have hundreds of trade professionals on our platform – including qualified drainage engineers who can do a CCTV inspection. Our team vets every engineer and make sure they have the right qualifications, experience and accreditations to do the job at hand.
Simply tell us where you are and we’ll match you with a Local Hero in minutes. Your drainage engineer will show you the CCTV images on site and discuss the findings before committing to additional work. They’ll also give you a detailed report of the survey afterwards.
We ask all our customers for open and honest feedback after every job and guarantee our engineers’ work for 12 months.
