The problem with drains is they are all hidden underground and
if you are trying to find them you need specialist equipment to
establish where they run on a property, finding access points
which can be used for future drain maintenance.
Tracing a Drain and Creating a Drain Map
We use CCTV cameras in combination with a sonde (a device
that transmits information about the drain so that the number of
drains at a property, or in the region of a public road, can be established. Dependent on the type of sonde used we can establish where drains are, direction of flow and even the quality of the water in them. This helps establish which drains are in actual use and which are redundant.
Why trace a Drain?
Let’s say that you have bought a really old house. It is likely that there may be no plans of where the drains run on that property, because they were never recorded. And let’s say that you want to build an extension with a bathroom, but any access to main sewer drainage is the other end of the house from where the extension is.
Now, if that house wasn’t the first building ever built at that property, a drain trace may uncover an additional sewer access, which although it may currently be redundant, but could now be utilised for drainage. We can inspect your property to find drain access points and wherever we discover access we can use CCTV to discover where the drain leads.
A drain trace can also discover where the blockage is underground that is causing drainage problems.
