Drainage Surveys

Internal & External Drainage

Before you can fix a drainage problem you first have to find it.

Using our brand new up-to-date drainage CCTV cameras we can carry out a drainage survey through which we record video, take snap shots and issue a full drainage system informing you of any issues, and recommendations for repairs.
We have jetting equipment available, allowing us to clear any drainage blockages that same day, should it be required to get a clearer understanding of any drainage defects.

In addition to modern equipment, our Water Loss Solutions team are experienced technicians who can identify and interpret the images and video they are seeing, allowing them to skillfully diagnose issues, giving you confidence in our repair recommendations.

We appreciate the potential costs of any repairs, so our surveys are thorough to help reduce any disruption and avoid costly mistakes.

“A combination of modern equipment and experienced, skilled technicians ensures you’ll get a detailed report of recommendations.”

Going the extra mile for customers

Help with Insurance Companies

Much of our work is carried out on behalf of clients who have insurance cover for ‘Trace & Access’.This cover will usually pay for water leak detection companies to locate your water leak.

The Leak Detective is very aware of the limitations and scope of Trace & Access cover and will advise and guide you through the process to try and make sure your claim is covered.

Upon completion we will provide you with a written report including photos and video which can be presented to your insurer to validate your claim.

We have completed thousands of insurance claim leak detection jobs and are happy to offer free telephone advice from the outset to assist with the claim process.
