Frequently Asked Questions
What is drain mapping?
Drain mapping involves assessing the layout and condition of the drains beneath your property or land.
There are a few techniques you can use to efficiently map your drains. Flushing and using CCTV are the most common and are both methods we use here at Certified Drain Surveys.
Flushing involves pouring water down your drain – either by flushing the toilet or running the tap – to see where water is flowing and how your drain pipes are connected.
CCTV involves pushing a special camera through your drains and record the pipework layout and assess the condition of the drainage system.
Once this process is complete, you’ll be provided with the layout of your drainage system, typically in the form of a map.

Do I need drain mapping before carrying out building work?
Drain mapping isn’t always necessary when preparing for building work, but it’s recommended and can help you avoid costly mistakes further down the line.
Knowing the exact layout of your drainage system gives you, or your builders, an awareness of how close to the surface your pipework may be. This allows you to avoid damaging them whilst carrying out the building work.
Planning ahead and carrying out drain mapping work will also make you aware of any issues that may arise during your building work. You’ll know ahead of time whether your piping will need to be extended to reach your extension or whether it already exists.
Do I need drain mapping when buying a house?
Drain mapping is becoming more and more common in the house buying process.
Although not essential, your building surveyor or mortgage provider may recommend you get your drains mapped.
This allows you to check the conditions of the drains below the house you’re interested in buying, ensuring you’re fully aware of their condition before purchasing the house so you don’t get stuck with costly repair bills later on.
Drain mapping is especially helpful if you’re purchasing an older property, as the drainage system layout will likely be quite dated. Having an idea of how they were developed will be beneficial should anything go wrong in the future.
How much does drain mapping cost?
The price of drain mapping depends on the complexity of the project as well as the method used.
The more complex a drainage system is, the trickier it is to navigate. Therefore, it may take slightly longer and might require an experienced professional with more specialised equipment.
Not all drainage systems are easily accessible, this makes our job a little bit more difficult and therefore may be reflected in the price quoted.
Typically you can expect to pay anywhere between £100 – £400.
If you choose Certified Drain Surveys for your drain mapping in London, you can be sure you’re paying for a professional service. Plus, you won’t be surprised by any hidden fees, giving you peace of mind that your mapping is being carried out by absolute professionals.
