What is Underground? A Build Over Survey will help you Find Out

Building an extension to your home? Not only is it a pre-requisite outlined by the Water Undertaker (Welsh Water – DCWW) it is also necessary to ensure the best place for connection.

You must carry out a Build over Survey if there is a sewer below or near any extension or footings that you are planning. So, when digging out the footings for your new build all sorts of things can happen to move or damage your existing drainage system or public sewer. You may even already have a problem without knowing about it. Consider a Build Over Survey for peace of mind as no-one needs to find out their drains are faulty after a new building project has been completed. 

Homebuyers Survey Report

As from the 1st of June 2007, homes in England and Wales needed to arrange a home information pack (HIP) for their homes before it is put up for sale. A drainage survey can be included in this report. Elite Pipeline Services can provide a full comprehensive written hard copy report, including recommendations and quotations for remedial work if required that could be costly at a later date. A full drain camera survey can help you re-negotiate the sale price of the property, especially if remedial work is required. Along with the hard copy report the client receives video footage on DVD of the drainage system on the property you intend to purchase.
