How can I be sure there are no broken Pipes?


Our drain cameras can locate damages from trees roots, blockages and other obstructions.

What is the need for a Drainage Camera?

Closed circuit Television (CCTV) inspection enables a comprehensive look at the condition of the pipes, junctions and bends.

The inspection can allow us to see and photograph tree root intrusions, broken or cracked pipes, if the drain is holding water or other abnormalities, using this information we can supply a detailed report.


The drain camera inspection can be used to detect the following:

  • condition of pipes, junctions and bends

  • tree root damage

  • obstructions in the pipes

  • Poorly laid drains

  • broken pipes

  • mapping your existing pipes


Independent Plumbing Inspections perform CCTV inspections on new or existing buildings.

Using state of the art CCTV push camera system technology to locate blockages or structural defects.
With the very latest equipment we are able to provide CCTV footage and photo’s, as well as detailed report on our findings which can be used for insurance and warranty purposes or added to an inspection report tailored to your requirements.

CCTV inspections can also assist in avoiding future problems as they can spot issues before they develop into something more serious. It’s also a good idea before purchasing a property or through the building process to thoroughly check the condition of the drains before you make the decision to invest.


How does the drain camera work?

The CCTV cameras go down into the pipes to conduct drain inspections and can show us exactly what’s going on meters under the ground.
Drain camera technology is exceptional, with clear colour images that allow us to easily identify damage in the pipes, and also issues that could become damage later.
We record the pipe camera’s footage straight onto a usb, so we can show our you exactly where the drainage problems are.


Location accuracy


The cameras we use have built in sondes; these are locator devices used in underground surveying. This means we can locate the location of the camera in the drainage system. The huge advantage of this is that we know where the blockage or damage is in the pipeline or can even just survey the current pipe system so it can be mapped. The locator sends radio waves up and down to the sonde to locate where it is in the pipe, depending and the grounds condition and surrounds the accuracy of the pipes location can be affected.


A Drain Camera is the perfect way to detect a Drainage Issue.


With our video camera inspections, you can be sure your drain issue will not only be located, it will be correctly diagnosed, enabling repairs to be performed quickly. You also gain the peace of mind of seeing the issue inside your drain for yourself and we can even supply a copy of the inspection which you can keep for future reference or can inspect later.


Drain pressure testing


We can conduct static pressure tests on your sewer and stormwater drains to see if they are water tight and don't leak. A leaking drain below ground could cause cracking and movement in the house structure..

We plug off the drain and fill it with water to identify if there is a leak,  if the water level drops then there is a leak. We can test different sections of the drain depending on its construction and access available.
