Frequently Asked Questions


What type of survey would I need for a home buyers survey?

For a home buyers’ survey, you’d need a fully comprehensive survey to be carried out. With this survey, you would receive a full report of the drainage system in your new home, which you can then pass on to your insurance provider.

I have rodent problems, how do I stop them entering the property?

Our ‘Look and See’ surveys allow us to identify the exact location that rodents are entering your property from. Once we’ve identified this area, we can devise the best possible permanent solution and offer you a quotation for the solution.

If the drainage run which needs surveying is on a building site or demolition site, will this affect the survey?

As long as we can access all manholes on the site, this won’t be a problem. However, in the event that we need to carry out a site induction, there will be a charge.

Are there different pipes and if so how will this affect the survey and price?

Pipes take many different sizes, with the most common being 100mm. These pipes are often found in domestic properties and would be surveyed using a push camera. Where pipes are perhaps smaller or angled, a mini cam may be required - both of these cameras are charged at a standard fee. For larger pipes, typically 150mm - 225mm and situated on commercial sites, we would use a crawler unit. Due to the added complexity of this method, an additional fee would be charged.

What are your opening hours?

You can call us 7 days a week, between the hours of 6am - midnight. In emergencies, our fast response services can be with you in as little as 60 minutes.

When do I make a payment?

Payment is required upon completion of the job, which you will be informed of by the engineer. If for any reason you cannot be on-site when the job is completed, we will take your card details upon booking, and we’ll charge you when we have finished. We accept payments from debit cards, credit cards and in cash.

What guarantees do you offer?
