If you’re like most people, you probably don’t think about your drain system until there’s a problem. And by then it’s usually too late. A drain survey is a way to detect problems with your drain system before they become a bigger issue. In this blog post, we’ll discuss what a drain survey is and when you might need one.
What is a drain survey?
A drain survey is an inspection of your drain system. This can be done using a camera to inspect the drain pipes, or by doing a physical inspection of the drain system. A drain survey can help to identify problems with your drain system, such as blockages, leaks, or other damage.
When do I need a drain survey?
There are a few times when you might need a drain survey. If you’re having problems with your drain system, such as repeated blockages or leaks, a drain survey can help to identify the problem. You might also need a drain survey if you’re planning to do work on your drain system, such as relining or repairs. Finally, if you’re buying a new property, you may want to have a drain survey done to check the condition of the drain system.
A drain survey is a valuable tool that can help to detect problems with your drain system before they become serious. If you’re having problems with your drain system, or are planning to do work on it, consider getting a drain survey done. It could save you a lot of time and money in the long run.
Is a drain survey covered in a building survey?
Building Surveyors are only able to examine a property’s limited portion, which is why it’s advisable to get a thorough drain survey if you are buying a house or business from a trained drainage surveyor who specialises in examining septic tanks and sewage systems.
How will I know if a drain is blocked?
