Drainage Inspections and Repairs – Auckland

Inspecting drains

If you notice any odd smells or sounds around your drainage system, or you see water leaking from your pipes or drains, you may have:

  • a blocked drain
  • cracked pipes
  • roots intruding or blocking your pipes
  • grease or fat build up in the pipes
  • a foreign object stuck somewhere in the drainage system
  • some other type of blockage in your pipes prohibiting proper water/wastewater flow

The first thing to do (once you’ve turned off any running water) is to give us a call on 0800 437 021.

A member of our experienced team of drainage professionals will come out with specialist drainage equipment and CCTV cameras to accurately diagnose the cause of the problem.

We will look after any necessary repair work and advise you on the state of your drainage system and any issues that might cause problems further on. If your drains are cracked or damaged, getting them checked and repaired early on will help you avoid hefty bills in the future.

CCTV and Drain Inspections

We use specialist closed circuit (CC) drain cameras to inspect your pipes and assess the condition of your drainage system, the stormwater lines and parts of the sewer system that may affect your property.

We can detect broken or damaged pipes, tree root intrusions, cracks, and other issues before they become larger, more expensive problems that interfere with the safe operation of your plumbing.

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
