CCTV Drain Survey in Luton

CCTV Drain Survey in Luton, St Albans, Dunstable & Bedfordshire

SB Drain Services provides the latest in CCTV drain survey technology to ensure our domestic, commercial and industrial clients have free-flowing, hassle-free drainage systems. Drainage issues can be traced back to numerous causes, so it remains vital that a thorough inspection takes place to ascertain the full extent of any problems at hand. The use of cutting-edge CCTV technology offers our personnel the best possible visual inspection, allowing us to diagnose the issue at hand and immediately go about preventing any further damage. In our role as a reputable drainage contractor, we operate in Luton, Dunstable, St Albans and the throughout the Bedfordshire area.


We conduct these non-invasive drain surveys on above and below-ground drainage systems. While we recognise that the majority of these systems lay underground, it’s always important to try and stay ahead of issues in order to minimise potential damage, disruptive repair work and overall high costs. A CCTV drain survey remains the most comprehensive solution to finding and fixing singular or multiple drainage problems.


Some of the most common issues that affect drainage systems include:


  • Fractures
  • Leaks
  • Fissures
  • Blockages
  • Scale Deposits
  • Fat Deposits
  • Tree Root Intrusion
  • General Collapse


If you’re experiencing any abnormalities with your drainage system, please contact us.

CCTV Drain Survey | How it Works


In order to conduct a CCTV drain survey, we use a small, full colour digital camera attached to cabling capable of extending long distances. This cable not only allows our experienced personnel to feed the camera through the drainage systems of Luton, Dunstable, St Albans and the neighbouring areas, it also provides a live-feed back to the surface.


As your drainage contractor, we examine the images from within the drains on a metre-by-metre basis. We note the configuration of the system at hand, as well as any uncovered faults, on a log sheet. This not only gives us a full overview of the entire drainage system, it also allows us to pinpoint the exact areas of any problems we find.


Having evaluated the logged information, we then produce a detailed report for our clients, along with a computer-generated sketch of the drainage system, a DVD recording of the drain survey itself and any further recommendations that we see fit to make.


Our final reports come in a concise and easy-to-under manner with as little industry jargon as possible. Should we uncover problems that require any kind of repair or maintenance work, such as drain lining or high-pressure jetting, we also include a quotation for our services.

Drain Surveys for Home Buyers


In addition to checking for a healthy flow and identifying any problems, CCTV drain surveys have become a common stipulation for prospective home buyers. Ahead of issuing a mortgage, an increasing number of banks and mortgage companies now require a pre-purchase drainage survey.


The reason for this survey lays in the cost of repairing a heavily damaged or completely collapsed drain. When this often-significant expense gets added to the already large burden of a mortgage, the homeowner can find themselves with an unexpected cash shortfall.


A CCTV drain survey provides a swift, more cost-effective solution to physical exploratory work, as well as offering the ultimate peace of mind to our clients while satisfying their mortgage provider.

Rodent Infestation Surveys


SB Drain Services holds experience in both the drainage and pest control industries. For property owners in Luton and the wider Bedfordshire area with a drainage issue that has led to a rodent infestation, this makes us the obvious drainage contractor of choice for a swift resolution.


As much as 90% of internal rat problems can be sourced back to defects in the drainage system. We understand that rats and mice in and around a property not only causes emotional distress, but greatly increases the likelihood of damaged cables as well as contamination issues. As such, we carry out a swift, thorough CCTV drain survey to identify the point of entry before carrying out the most appropriate rodent-proofing action.


Common proofing measures include:

  • Installation of rat flaps
  • Installation of non-return valves
  • The repair of broken drains



Our clients in Luton, Dunstable, St Albans and the surrounding areas can rest assured that, as the drainage contractor of choice, SB Drain Services works tirelessly to provide a pest-free property.
