CCTV Drain Survey in Luton

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

Here at SB Drains, we provide CCTV drain surveys to domestic, commercial, and industrial clients in Luton, Dunstable, St Albans, and the Bedfordshire area. Blocked drains and drainage issues can range in severity, and if left untreated, they can escalate to flooding, sewage backup, and property damage. A thorough CCTV drain inspection must take place to locate and resolve obstructions and damage.

Drainage Inspections

There are many indicators of a compromised drainage system, including foul odours and slow water drainage. Some of the most common issues include fractures, blockage, scale or fat deposits, tree root intrusions, and leaks.

We use state-of-the-art technology to complete a drain inspection in Luton and neighbouring areas that transmit a full-colour image by a camera. We complete a metre-by-metre inspection and track faults on a log sheet, providing a property maintenance report for landlords, property owners, and prospective buyers. Following the drain survey, we can provide a free quotation for any subsequent repair and maintenance work you may require from us.

Rodent Infestation Surveys

Defected drains are the source of as much as 90% of internal rat problems. Rodents can cause emotional, electronic, and contamination damage. At SB Drains, we are the drainage and pest control contractor of choice for clients in Luton and neighbouring areas.

We must locate the point of entry for rodents by performing a CCTV drainage survey. We can then effectively proof your property with rat flaps, non-return valves, and drain repairs. By using drain survey cameras for rat control, we can locate the source of the rodent infestation and provide the most appropriate solution.

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.
