Camera inspection

WHAT IS A CAMERA INSPECTION FOR?

This test allows us to verify the condition and operation of the French drain in order to determine the causes behind efficiency issues or water infiltration problems. The French drain inspection helps us determine whether or not it is really necessary to replace the drain or simply clean it. Simple, fast and efficient, the camera inspection has become the ideal way to ensure the condition of a drain during periodic verifications, routine maintenance or sale inspections.

HOW DOES A CAMERA INSPECTION WORK?

Our specialist inspects and assesses the nature of your land as well as the work to be undertaken in order to perform the test. To carry out the French drain inspection by camera, an access well is dug and chimneys are installed and connected to your French drain (we can also go through the catch basin). When excavating the well, we collect all the information necessary to determine the configuration and efficiency of your drainage system. This information includes, among others:

  • the exact depth, layout and type of drain used;
  • the nature of the soil around the perimeter of your foundation walls;
  • the thickness, quantity, quality and type of drainage that was used.

One of our specialized technicians will insert the camera into the drain and record its progress, centimeter by centimeter, in order to detect the slightest anomaly. The camera’s progress is monitored live on site and the recording is then studied in our offices. The final analysis is provided to you in a detailed report with a copy of the recording as well as our estimate for any corrections to be made, if necessary.

Once the French drain inspection by camera is completed, the access well remains in place. This will allow you to carry out periodic inspections or drain cleaning when you want, without having to redo any work.

Plus, if you have an iron ochre problem, the chimneys are an excellent way to clean your drains easily at the recommended frequencies as well as at a lower cost. We can also locate pipes through a concrete slab or earth in order to assess their depth.
