Modern civilisation would quickly grind to a halt if our current drainage systems failed. While these networks are built to last, it is still a fact that problems can still occur from time to time. This is when the expertise of the professionals at Sewer Serve Solutions will prove to be an invaluable asset. Thanks to more than 40 years of experience working alongside the Environmental Agency as well as in conjunction with the wastewater industry throughout the UK, you can rest assured in the knowledge that any problems will be quickly diagnosed. So, what are some common signs that a CCTV drainage survey may be required?
Poor Flow Rates
If you notice that water is taking longer to drain within your kitchen and bathroom, this could signal that the pipes have narrowed on in severe cases, that a blockage has occurred. One of the most effective ways to discover the root of the problem is to employ the use of a modern closed-circuit television system. Once the issue has been identified, the appropriate steps can be taken.
Smells Emanating from Drains
Foul or disagreeable odours are common signs that a blockage may be present; particularly if these are accompanied by water that takes longer to drain. Once again, remote monitoring systems will provide sure-fire results within a fraction of the time that would normally be required.
Raised Water Levels
Raised water levels will often indicate that a problem exists somewhere within the piping system. This may signal that a blockage is present or that a section of pipe has been physically impinged (such as if a root has intruded). Please note that raised water levels may occur inside of the home (such as a toilet or bathtub) or around your property; especially where the cesspit or pipes are located.
Strange Noises Emanating from Pipes
If you happen to notice odd noises (such as crackling or gurgling) coming from your pipes, this could be another sign that they have narrowed or that a blockage is present. Once again, the trained technicians at Sewer Serve Solutions are here to help.
