You can refer to my article on why you need a drainage expert and not a plumber, however, if the plumber cannot diagnose your blocked drain issue it will most likely require the help of a drainage expert. A CCTV inspection of your drainage system will quickly help identify the root cause of your drainage issue and why the drains are blocked.We can often diagnose and treat on the same day and help save you money in unnecessary plumbing costs.
When drains are blocked in London one of the first symptoms that you will notice will be strange sulphur/egg-like smells coming up from the sinks or toilets in the bathroom or kitchen areas. You may also have a burbling sound and slow drain away when you pull the plug out of the bath or kitchen sink after washing up. You may also find that your toilet starts to overflow or takes a while to drain down. This may be something that gets progressively worse over a matter of days or weeks so may not be immediately noticeable as the blockage in the drains becomes more clogged up with fats or tissues.
If your drains are blocked and you are the property owner then you are liable to clear the blockage. If you are a tenant of the property then out will be down to landlord responsibility and the call should be made urgently to get the drain blockage resolved. On occasion, there may be a drainage problem that includes the neighbours as a result of a shared chamber or a chain of houses or businesses on a road. A full inspection by a qualified engineer will clarify the exact issue and provide a drainage solution. Prevention going forward includes ensuring that food waste goes in the bin and not done the drain and sanitary towels and wet wipes are disposed of correctly.
A drainage CCTV is often recommended after the unblocking of your drains, sometimes an un-alignment or break in the drains has caused the initial blockage with the build-up of waste adding to the backup. A Drainage CCTV will eliminate any guesswork with regards to the condition of the drainage system and will give you peace of mind.
The CCTV is often an overseen requirement in pre-purchase reports, a good surveyor will very often recommend a CCTV inspection of the drainage system in London.
