Video surveillance to map layout, falls and connections to uncover cause(s) of blockages.

Verified Review

Drainscan were called in where a previous company – with the same equipment – had failed to map the drain layout, identify the causes of recurring issues and propose solutions. Drainscan's two employees were thorough, quick and great at explaining what they were finding, and exploring further to confirm their analysis. They were also fun and proud that they do their work brilliantly. Fantastic!

Locating an existing historic sewer pipe

Verified Review

We called on Drainscan to find an old sewer pipe that we had to connect to and build a manhole on. The two guys attended site on the date and time requested, they used their radar detection equipment and gave us a mark on the carriageway where we would find the sewer pipe, and that it was 3.5 metres below the road surface. We carried out our excavation over the next few days, and we found the pipe in exactly the location they had given us, and it was 3.5 metres below the surface exactly. Fantastic service and communication throughout from the whole team at Drainscan. We recommend them highly.
