Why might someone in Berkshire need a cctv drainage survey?

Buying a new home

A CCTV drain survey is one of the most important things a homebuyer should do before buying a house in Berkshire.

Building an extension

A pre-build survey can show the location & condition of the drains running under or close to any proposed building work.

Problems with rats

Rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a 50p piece. A cctv drain survey can identify any cracks and defects.

Surface flooding

A cctv drain survey can identify the underlying reasons for surface water flooding into your Berkshire property.


Leaking or broken drains under your property can lead to subsidence. A cctv drainage survey can identify any defects.

Persistent problems

If your drains keep reblocking or those horrible drain smells don't go away, it might be time for a cctv drain survey.

Pre-purchase drain surveys for Berkshire homebuyers

Drain surveys are one of the most important things to do before buying your new home.

Unfortunately, some Berkshire homebuyers only find out their drains have structural defects once they've moved in and then have to pay lots of money for drain repairs.

A pre-purchase drain survey can spot any potential problems before they appear, giving the buyer, the opportunity to negotiate with the seller or even pull out of the purchase.

To book a homebuyer drain survey, call 0118 336 3650 or email our Berkshire office.

What do we charge for a cctv drain survey in Berkshire?

£295.00 plus vat

Prices are higher for commercial properties and for properties west of Reading. Extra charges may apply if jetting is needed.

What areas of Berkshire can we come out to carry out cctv drainage surveys?

Our drain engineers carry out cctv drain surveys, drain inspections, homebuyer surveys, build over cctv surveys and drain tracing throughout the county of Berkshire including Reading, Bracknell, Wokingham, Maidenhead, Crowthorne, Sandhurst, Slough, Ascot, Eton, Woodley, Datchet, Twyford, Cookham, Old Windsor, Binfield, Earley, Winnersh, Sunningdale, Cranbourne, Sunninghill and Winkfield.

What if you don't need the full drain survey report?

We do offer a "quick look" drain survey, often referred to as a drain inspection, to locate and diagnose a specific problem within a drain.

The engineer can show you the footage on site and highlight any issues as he does the survey. This is cheaper and quicker for those who do not require the footage or a full written report, however, will not be adequate for insurance purposes.

Prices for a "quick look" drain survey in Berkshire start from £125 plus vat.

Do you need a build over drain survey before you build a new extension at your Berkshire home?

If you are building a conservatory or any other extension to your home, the local water authority in Berkshire will need to know, to ensure access to drains is not restricted.

Your local water authority will be able to tell you where the main sewers run. They will need to know the location, condition, depth and size of all drainage within 3m of the proposed extension. A build over drain survey will give you all the information you need.

Over 90% of rat problems within homes in Berkshire and across the UK are because of defective drainage systems. So if you are hearing rat noises in your ceilings, walls and under the floor and the usual rat control methods aren't working, please give us a call.

Rats can enter through displaced drains, broken or cracked pipes and redundant drains.

Our engineers in Berkshire use the latest cctv drain survey equipment, to identify any faults and defects, that would allow rats to escape from the sewers and into your home.

Our drain survey report will list the defects, with recommendations for all drain repairs.
