Everybody knows that a blocked drain can cause a great deal of trouble. At Kassia drains we are frequently able to respond quickly to a blockage before disruption becomes economically significant. Our skilled and accredited Kassia engineers can perform the necessary work efficiently and take appropriate action fast! This is possible because we use the best tools available and the most cost – effective method. Sonde drain tracing will enable us to locate and pin point the exact location and depth. This is unable to detect using just our CCTV drain survey although this method is still such a great tool requiring a lot of information about your drainage system (drain condition, invert levels, type of pipe, pipesize etc) but it will not pinpoint the exact location unlike our sonde drain tracing equipment.
