Drain Surveys in Wolverhampton

Usually a blocked drain is cleared by conventional rodding or with an electro mechanical or jetting machine. If you are experiencing repeated blockages it may be worth further investigation using CCTV equipment. A Baker and Son carry out drain surveys in Wolverhampton and surrounding areas.

CCTV surveys can quickly identify defects and the cause of drainage problems.



We have recovered all sorts of things from drains which have been causing blockages for years costing homeowners and businesses a fortune. Children's toys, pens, broken, undone and crimped drain rods which have pulled apart have all been found.

If the problem turns out to be more complex, for example root ingress or a collapse we can usually identify the problem quickly using CCTV. Should the problem be covered by your buildings insurance we will liase directly with your insurers and manage the problem for you if you wish

Cost effective Drain Inspection

CCTV drain surveys  are the best and most cost effective way to inspect drains and sewers. If you already have a drainage problem or are just keen to avoid one in the future, a CCTV drain or sewer survey is a quick and accurate way to get an instant, detailed look at the condition of the underground drainage system.

We use specialist camera systems and software to carry out a CCTV drain survey. The drain inspection cameras relay images to a monitor so that we can assess the structural condition and integrity of the drain or sewer. There is no disruption to your property or the environment. Our camera units give an accurate view of the drainage system which we can send directly to your insurance company if you wish along with a full technical report.

 Our CCTV surveys are also an efficient way of checking for rats present in drains. Remember that rats commonly gain internal access to property through small breaks in the drainage system, once they enter the cavity they can travel to most areas of the building, they need only the smallest flaw in a pipe join to start gnawing their way in, if there is already some damage to the underground drain, it is even easier for them.

If you suspect that you have such unwelcome visitors in your property, ask about a CCTV survey. If rats are coming in through the sewer system, we will identify the point of access and repair or replace the structure accordingly.

Pre-house purchase drain surveys in Wolverhampton.

Drains are not the obvious first choice of things to look at when considering purchasing a property.
A surveyor may be able to provide a rough idea as to the construction and condition of the drains, but this should not be relied upon solely. A drainage survey is the only way to know exactly what is going on in the drains. The survey highlights structural defects and the extent to which they may cause problems. In turn this can influence your decision to purchase a property and may end up saving you money. Alternatively it may put your mind at ease knowing that the drains are working correctly.

No one at home? Provided that we can access the drains and have permission to be on the property we can still carry out the survey, we do not need to enter the house.
We will happily arrange the survey with the current vendors or estate agents on your behalf. We will collect and return keys to access the property to be surveyed if required at no extra cost.
