The Importance of Drain Surveys

drain surveys

Buying a home is the most expensive purchase most of us will make in our lives, so we have to pay attention to the small details! We might look for defects above ground, but potential homeowners often neglect to check the drainage systems attached to the property— this can lead to extremely costly and inconvenient problems later on.

When you call TWC Draincare to arrange a survey, we will ask you some questions about the property, to determine the best course of action. Then, we will agree on a convenient time for the survey to be carried out, as well as a fixed price for the survey and report. Then, you can relax and let the experts survey your drains before we give you a comprehensive rundown of any issues or potential snags we have identified.

So, what sort of problems might we find? The pipes within the system may be fractured, leaky, or even collapsed. Vegetation can also be a concern, if tree roots begin to intrude into the piping system, which can cause blockages and compromise the structural integrity of the drain. There may be even more obvious concerns, like evidence of blockages, or backed up sewage. No matter what, our expert engineers will present their findings clearly, and offer any further courses of action that may be appropriate. With a CCTV drain survey, we can even show you images of the problems that we have found, allowing you to make informed decisions about the property you intend to buy.

Catching these issues early can allow for drainage problems to be fixed before you move in, allowing you to enjoy settling into your new home without further problems. For more information on booking a drain survey for your property, please contact TWC.‍
