The Latest CCTV Drain Camera Technology

We use the latest in innovative CCTV technology to inspect your drains.


We access your drainage either via existing drainage points or by removing a small section (approximately 15cms) of your above-ground drain pipes. We feed the CCTV camera cable into your drains and visually inspect your drainpipes for blocked, broken, sagged or collapsed pipes. The cable is small and flexible and does not inflict damage to your pipes. Older methods, such as using a plumbers snake, are blind methods that risk further damage to your pipes.

CCTV Drain Cameras offer a non-obtrusive inspection method that minimises the need for digging and excavating around your home. In combination with no-dig repair solutions, such as high-pressure water jetters to remove blockages and no-dig drain relining to repair pipes, we offer a full suite of minimal impact repairs for your home plumbing.

During operation, our licenced plumber watches the live camera feed via a monitor and this footage can be recorded to be shown to you at a later stage. It also provides a visual record of your plumbing that can be used by homeowners and real estate agents to document for later use.

The cable is long enough to inspect any plumbing network and is able to determine the exact location of the problem. A full visual inspection of your drainpipes allows us to determine the health of your network and permits a full diagnosis of your problem. Using this information, we provide a full report that recommends the best course of action, wherever possible we recommend no-dig repair solutions.

why use a CCTV drain camera

In Brisbane, damage to external drain pipes is common due to the climate. The dry weather leads to ground shifting which can lead to cracked pipes. Subsequently, this leads to plants seeking out the moisture from the leaking pipe causing further damage and blockages.

When it comes to blocked drains, a CCTV drain camera inspection is a reliable and affordable way to eliminate the possibility of a costly excavation.

CCTV drain camera inspections reduce the need to dig around your property to expose pipes leading to savings associated with machinery hire, labour and property rehabilitation. We understand no one likes to see their carefully maintained lawns and gardens dug up and we avoid this wherever possible.

A CCTV drain camera inspection will show your plumber if there is any damage to your pipes causing your blocked drain, or show if the blockage is caused by tree root infiltration or other foreign matter.

A drain inspection with a CCTV enables our expert plumbers to locate and identify the problem areas efficiently and quickly. It eliminates the requirement for major repairs as well as unnecessary disruption along with saving money and time.

No disruptions

our no-dig approach

No-dig repairs utilise our CCTV drain inspection technology to assess your plumbing. This way we are able to diagnose the problem without excavation and recommend a solution using our no-dig technology. A small portion of the pipe will need to be removed from where we will access your pipes from. Blockages are one of the main household plumbing issues that occur. With CCTV Inspection, we can find that blockage and clear it for you in no time at all using a high-pressure water jetter. For cracked or broken pipes we may be able to install a patch or a new lining into the pipe. We feed the patch or lining via a small portion of external piping. Once completed, we replace the portion of the pipe, fitted to make sure it matches the existing pipe. This means minimal impact on the aesthetics of your house and much quicker turnaround times. Often plumbers use expensive, loud and obstructive excavation equipment to access areas of your plumbing network that require repairs. This is our last resort. We’re committed to using low impact, non-intrusive plumbing solutions to minimise inconvenient and damaging works to your property.
