Glasgow CCTV Drain Survey and Sonar Drain Tracing

A blocked drain can be caused by so many things that flow down our homes network of drainage pipes.  It can be a collection of hair or a build up of grease, food waste or a million other things that we pour down our homes sinks each and every day.  Like death and taxes, a certainty in life is that you will get a blocked drain in your home.

When a drain becomes blocked and there is no easy to identify reason for the blockage, how do we determine what has caused the blockage and just as importantly, how do we go about unblocking it?

CCTV Drain Survey and Sonar Drain Tracing Services are two of the advanced drainage services that we offer at JSL Drainage.  Since we first began in the North of Glasgow in 2006, we have been building up a reputation as the drainage firm that delivers a reliable and professional service time and time again.  And so much of what helps us to deliver such an excellent and recommended drainage service is the equipment we use.

CCTV Drain Surveys

Drain pipes can crack and fracture for a whole host of reasons and as soon as a drain pipe cracks, it allows the escape of water and sewage waste.  Whether the drain pipe in question is in your house or your garden, it will cause problems including water damage and even a  potential biohazard risk.


At JSL Drainage, we use CCTV Drain Surveys to help identify the location of these cracks so that we can repair or replace the specific area of drainage without having to dig up your entire garden or lift up all the floor boards in your home.

Our CCTV Drain Surveys include:

  • We use the latest in CCTV drain camera technology
  • All suspected pipes are inspected and classified
  • We will recommend the best options to fix the problem
  • We can supply a digital recording of our findings


Sonar Drain Tracing

We use sonar drain tracing alongside our CCTV Drain Survey equipment to help identify the source of any leaks and blockages.  We have invested in this technology to help you save money in the long run.  After all, it is a lot cheaper replacing one section of pipe where you know there was a problem rather than having to lay new drainage pipe.
