What is a CCTV Drain Inspection?

Also known as a video drain inspection, this involves us using a closed circuit (CC) camera to inspect the drains, pipelines, sewer and storm water lines outside or underneath your property. We run an inspection crawler camera into the drain pipes, with the ability to tilt, pan and zoom to get a complete 360-degree picture.

When is a CCTV Drain Inspection used?

We use CCTV drain inspection in a variety of circumstances:

  • to inspect what is happening in your drains and pipes, beyond what you can see with the naked eye
  • to conduct an accurate drainage survey, for commercial and residential projects
  • to accurately diagnose what might be causing a blocked drain
  • to provide up-to-date video footage that Auckland Council may request before you can develop or subdivide your property

Leading-edge technology

We’re continuously investing in new technology, equipment and cameras to ensure our clients have all the information they need, produced quickly and cost-effectively. With a range of crawlers, cameras, and pipeline inspection systems that produce excellent picture quality, we can inspect pipelines from 100mm right up to XXmm, using pan, tilt and zoom capabilities.

Accurate reports and data

The specialist team at Sumich Plumbing & Drainage will provide you with footage produced from the CCTV video inspection on a DVD so you can share the files with your developer and/or Auckland Council as an accurate picture of what is happening in your drains and pipelines.

We can also draw up a written plan, if required, to go along with your CCTV drain inspection video file.
