Do CCTV Drain Inspection And Surveillance Technologies Really Help Plumbers?

Lets face it, before we had such advanced CCTV drain inspection equipment  available, plumbers still had to assess drainage issues. This was a difficult, manual process and would take much longer and was a more unsanitary task. Often the surrounding ground would need to be dug out, to visually inspect any problems. Pipes were laid bare so that the top and sides would be visible, there was plenty of debris and a lot of digging. The bottom of the pipe was still occluded, so if a huge crack ran the length of the underneath of the pipe it might not be easily detected.

This led to wasting potable water through leaks, or even worse sewerage which would then infect the surrounding soil. Old inspection methods couldn’t easily provide such 360° access and relied only on the word of the assessor in relating the problem, the odd photo, repair and ultimate cost, it was more expensive and labour intensive. 

CCTV drain inspection machinery make looking at troublesome drains more accessible, efficient and affordable. Our innovative plumbing technicians are able to investigate and give accurate costs too.

Instances which CCTV Drain Inspection may not be possible, do arise and are dealt with quickly and proficiently. Giving our customers great plumbing service, always.

The Benefits of Troubleshooting with CCTV Drain Imagery


At Andrew Vanny Plumbing we believe that CCTV camera drainage inspection equipment is vital for homeowners and business alike to keep plumbing clean and functional. Which is why we are available to survey your drainage, whenever is most convenient to you. By fully employing these CCTV technologies it is fast and easy to discover what the damage to drainage may be, as well as how much it will cost to fix. If a problem is spotted quickly enough, it can be halted and repaired before entire replacement is required. 


So preventing hairline cracks, erosion, dislodged drainage, physical obstructions or smaller holes from worsening. Unacknowledged damage to the drainage can not only mean a financial headache to eventually put right, but can even lead to undermining the area around the leak with contaminated soil. Or a hefty clean water bill for unused water escaping from the damaged drain. Did you know that drainage can become contaminated with vermin and larvae, which may then need the employment of a specialist pest control agent, to tackle. CCTV drain survey equipment is considered the gold standard to identify which part of troublesome drainage belongs to which homeowner and who is to pay for its repair or replacement.


Right now Andrew Vanny Plumbing has a special offer, save $180 on your CCTV drain inspection when we clear your blocked drain! Mention this when you call.

Commonplace Drain Issues


Utilising CCTV  surveillance our plumbing teams get quickly to any drainage related issue. Repairing when possible and replacing when necessary. In Hornsby alone, Andrew Vanny Plumbing have used CCTV inspection to investigate, uncover and analyse issues such as drainage which has become broken and cracked in some way. Even tiny cracks can need fixing to prevent further erosion and restore the drain to fully working order. 


Finding a physical obstruction like a tree root can also happen. In our beautiful warm climate here in Australia, thirsty trees and shrubbery will often send roots deep down into the soil to ‘tap into’ the nearest water source, also known as our drainage. And its not just clean, cool potable water these plants want! but sewer drainage too! The waste products which run through our drainage still contain plenty of vitamins and microbial elements which is nutrient rich matter for our flora and fauna. 


Culprits causing blockages can be household items, like nappies and sanitary products, the odd children’s toy, and even dead rodents, who cannot escape the pipe once inside. No wonder Andrew Vanny Plumbing advise calling a plumber if you notice an unpleasant smell near drains. 


Prevention is always preferred, so we recommend annual or bi annual CCTV drain inspections, for your peace of mind and the continued tip top condition of your plumbing and drainage.
