CCTV Drain Survey in Ormskirk Helps Find the Source of the Problem

CCTV Drain Survey in Burnley

Posted by Dave Neary

CCTV Drain Survey in OrmskirkTechnology is a wonderful tool especially for a CCTV drain survey in Ormskirk. We haven’t had to dig up the whole property to find a blockage very often. But we still remember the look on a customer’s face when informed we had to dig until we find it. So, if you notice the basement drain is backing up there is likely a blockage in the pipe leading to the main. It’s good to be able to find out where that blockage is because if it’s beyond your property line and into city property, the cost for repairs is not yours. That’s not an uncommon occurrence, especially in the older sections of town. Who knows how long ago that drain tile was laid? Besides, where once there were no large trees maybe now there are.

Large tall trees have large deep roots that can wrap around and cause cracks in pipes and tile. In Ormskirk, a CCTV drain survey may show us exactly where in the pipe that blockage is. Whether or not it’s your responsibility, we may only need to dig in one small section. We can make the repairs and cover it over again. If you have a septic tank and you notice the ground around and over it getting marshy, you have, minimum, a leak. You may even smell it. We might have to dig up the whole tank to make the repairs. But if a CCTV drain survey reveals a break in the pipe leading to the field, that’s an easier fix. It’s good to know that first before we start digging.

Schedule a CCTV drain survey in Ormskirk before you notice any problems. We can do that for you at a very low cost and you can rest easy knowing everything is in good shape. Do that once a year and you will win the homeowner maintenance award of the year. It’s good if our cameras find a trouble spot early on. We can clear it easily before it causes real damage. Contact us if you suspect exit drains backing up and we will weave our camera in and get a good look at the condition of your drains. This technology can save us a lot of time and labour and therefore save you a lot of money. It’s just easier to fix when you can see where the problem is.

I contacted Red Rose as another plumber had let me down. Dave was very professional and both arrived the next morning as planned. Sorted the blockage and we had a laugh too. Both were great and would definitely recommend them.

I called this company because they were highly recommended to me by my plumber. They came out on short notice to sort a blocked foul drain. Very nice guys and resolved the problem quickly and for a good price. Thank you!

Job was made difficult by poor drains and plumbing work that had been done originally. Despite the issues caused by previous shoddy work, the lads worked out how to get round the problem and get the blocked waste flowing again. Highly recommended. Arrived when promised and explained at each step what they were doing.

Rang at 8.30 this morning and very promptly arrived 40 minutes later to attend my blocked kitchen sink. Which turned out alot more difficult and harder than anticipated due to the pipe work under my kitchen. However the two guys weren't to be beaten and after approx 3 hours on the job, a trip to the plumbers merchant to buy a pipe joint so they could cut into the pipe they managed to reach the blocked pipe and clear the blockage. Very committed to sorting the problem and still only charged me the £60 that was quoted on the phone. Highly recommend this company if you have any sort of drainage issue.

I would definitely recommend you call Red Rose Drains only. Polite friendly and no hidden extras . Thanks Paul Moores

These guys will go the extra mile. I called them at 9.30 on a Monday morning after we experienced a sewage smell in our kitchen. They where at my door at 12.15 THE SAME DAY. The two lads checked every manhole cover and found that the one by the kitchen was heavily blocked. They worked very hard and where determined to clear the blockage. They completely cleared every drain and gulley within one hour using high a pressure water system. From a price point of view (only £60 all in) these guys are worth their weight in gold. Very professional, polite and cleaned up after they had finished. Recommend? Without hesitation. Cheers guys. Like
