CCTV Drain Inspections in Adelaide

A combination of our highly trained technicians and cctv technology takes out the guess work and can save you thousands. Call us for peace of mind

What is a CCTV drain camera?

A CCTV (closed circuit television) drain camera is a small camera which is attached to a fibre optic cable. This cable is inserted into your pipe and can travel the length, up to 100 meters, to allow for the elimination of guess work when it comes to identifying the cause and location of a blockage, or damage to your pipe work, and are especially effective in blocked stormwater or blocked sewer pipe scenarios.

Why would you need a CCTV drain inspection?

A CCTV drain inspection from ABA Plumbing & Gas is the ideal solution if you seem to have a reoccurring blocked drain in Adelaide. A CCTV drain inspection can eliminate the need for excavation methods to locate the problem within your pipes and allows for a more cost effective, accurate and reliable method for finding and repairing:

  • Broken, cracked or collapsed pipes
  • Sagged or bellied pipes
  • Blocked pipes caused by tree roots or other foreign objects

The use of the CCTV drain camera allows your highly skilled plumber from ABA Plumbing & Gas to quickly identify and asses the problem being caused within your pipes to enable them to determine the next steps to quickly rectify the issue in the most efficient and cost effective manner. This allows for an accurate and long term repair, rather than a quick fix where you will soon see the problem reoccur.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is a CCTV drain inspection, and why is it necessary?

A CCTV drain inspection refers to a drainage system where Closed-Circuit Television technology is employed for inspections. A CCTV drain inspection involves using a small waterproof camera attached to a cable to capture real-time footage of the inside of drains and pipes. It’s necessary to identify blockages, leaks, or other issues without invasive measures. ABA Plumbing & Gas utilises this technology for precise diagnostics and efficient drain repair solutions.

A small, waterproof camera is inserted into the drain or pipe. It captures real-time footage, allowing ABA Plumbing & Gas experts to assess the condition of the plumbing system. This method provides accurate insights, enabling targeted repairs or preventive measures.

How far can a drain camera go?

A drain camera’s reach depends on the length of the cable it’s attached to. ABA Plumbing & Gas utilises advanced drain cameras with flexible cables, allowing us to inspect drains and pipes efficiently, reaching various lengths based on the specific needs of the inspection.
