London's Drainage Dilemma: CCTV Surveys Uncover Hidden Infrastructure Challenges

With drainage problems rife across London, CCTV surveys are becoming more and more integral in highlighting the major causes of blockages and issues in the city.

It’s estimated that around 9 million people now live in London with a good third of that residing in the main inner area of the city. As the population has grown over the years - and continues to rise - it brings new problems for all residents to deal with. The drainage dilemma is at the forefront of this with countless drainage issues present in homes and buildings all over London. Nobody knows for sure what’s causing this dilemma, but London Drains Direct is looking to solve the mystery through underground CCTV surveys. 

The company will provide a CCTV Drain Survey in London for all residents or commercial building owners. It’s a low-cost service aiming to get to the heart of London’s drainage dilemma. Instead of assuming what’s causing blocked drains, sewage leakage or a host of other issues, a drain survey uncovers the hidden infrastructure challenges lurking beneath the city. 

Advanced CCTV technology means there’s no need for digging - which has always been a problem in a busy city like London. It’s why many older buildings have had drainage issues for years; it was simply impractical to dig large trenches in a busy city just to check if something was wrong. Now, a special CCTV camera can be sent down manholes on a pole to identify common issues like displaced/open joints, cracks and fractures, scale deposits or pests and wildlife hiding in the drainage systems. 

Many of London’s homes and buildings suffer from the issues above, particularly relating to the infrastructure. A lot of drainage systems in the city simply haven’t been touched or looked at since they were installed decades ago. Wear and tear is natural, but it’s more common in a city like London where drainage systems are overwhelmed by the population over many years. Factor in the hardness of the water here and it’s very common for drains to build up too much limescale, causing weaknesses in the overall system’s infrastructure. 

London Drains Direct is intent on solving this problem as best as it can. The number one way to handle London’s drainage dilemma is to identify issues before they get even worse. A full CCTV drain survey is the most useful tool in this battle and provides a quick and affordable way of spotting any and all infrastructure challenges.
