Broken pipes:

Lots of pressure falls onto the drainage pipes when placed underground. After a certain point, the constant pressure gets too much and can cause fractures in the pipes. Without a CCTV Drain inspection, finding this problem without digging up the ground is virtually impossible.

Collapsed Drains:

Collapsed drains are common but can be caused by numerous different factors. Detecting specific points, without a CCTV Drain inspection can become difficult. Not only can this spot the problem, but it can also identify what caused it. This is great for future reference if it can be prevented in some way.

Tree Roots:

One of the most common causes of blockage in the drains is from the tree roots. It is really hard to detect them because there is no sign from the outside.
