Industrial Drains FAQs

  • How do you carry out a pipeline inspection?

    We use CCTV technology for the majority of our pipeline inspections. The CCTV cameras are operated remotely and proved us with unbridled access to the pipeline so we can thoroughly inspect the condition of the pipes and assess what repair works are necessary.

  • When is hydrostatic testing required?

    Integrity testing or hydrostatic testing is used to test for faults in a pipeline or drainage system. It can also be used after repair works have taken place in order to test if the pipes have been repaired efficiently and will work at maximum capacity once the system is turned back on.
