how can you know what is happening down underground in your drains?

If you have a problem with your drain, the best way to find out what is happening underground is to put a camera down and take a look!

The camera will not only identify the problem but it will also give a location of the problem and the depth. Once we have this information we are able to give you an accurate quote to remedy the drainage issue.

NZ Drainage only does Residential Lines up to 100mm wide. If the Auckland City Council have asked you to get your drains camera'd they are generally talking about a Utility or Council Line of 150mm and bigger.

Think of the public main sewer line as the highway for some four legged travellers..

Home owners experience rat infestations on occasion and a lot of the time its to do with poorly maintained drains and cracks in the sewer pipes. A quick drainage CCTV survey will establish if the drains are indeed the culprit and if so our Drainage Experts will provide you with a quote to replace any cracked pipes on your property. When there is a crack or displacement in your drain, this is where the rat / mice exit the drain (or highway to them) and enter your property.

GOT A SMELL coming out of your drains AND YOU DONT KNOW WHY?

It could be that some kind of animal has entered your drains and died. A CCTV will be able to ascertain if that is the case and a quote provided to remedy the situation.
