Traditionally, methods for unblocking drains relied on time-consuming processes that resulted in the randomly selected excavations of the property. These methods were slow, untidy and costly.
The simplest methods being:
Observing a utility hole after running a tap or flushing the toilet has been an easy way to test for a drainage problem, and you can watch for any potential blockage.
Adding dye can be another variation of the flush test as a specific colour agent can be utilised with each drainage system revealing the identifiable appropriate colour. This system is useful for identifying water leaks in underground areas and cellars.
An elaborate practice involves obstructing exit areas of the drainage system and filling up a pipe with water. There will be no leaks if the level of water remains unchanged. The tricky part of this approach begins when a problem occurs, as determining and locating the cause can be challenging to pinpoint.
With its precise identification benefits, a CCTV Drainage Inspection is the perfect solution to resolve any pipeline obstructions on your property.
