Q. What is Web Access?

A. Web Access is a secure login which you login via our website, this allows you to view your DVD and Log Sheet, it is a great option if you have a number of different people wanting to view the results, eg architect, engineer, council.  Contact us if you would like to add this to your inspection.  A small fee applies.

 

Q. I have been asked to get Neighbours consent why?

A. We ask clients to get neighbours consent to speed up the process, if we arrive on site and the neighbour is not home, we cannot access their property without their consent.  A lot of the time, clients know there neighbours and they are happier having contact from the client then a contractor.

 

Q. I don’t want to deal with the neighbour, what happens now?

A. Please advise us, and we attempt to make contact with the neighbour, if they are not home we will leave a calling card.  Please note return to site fees will apply each time we drive to site.

 

DURING INSPECTION

 

Q. How long does the inspection take?

A. This is dependable on how many lines and the length of lines, standard inspections are around approx. 1-2 hours. 

 

Q. Do I need to be home for the inspection

A. We don’t require anyone at home as we only need to access the outside of the property.  We do need dogs secure if they are on site. If you wish to be home during the inspection, please contact our office 09 392 7789 and we will make a suitable booking time and day with you.

 

Q. Your operator has been to site and placed pegs or dazzle marks what are these for?

A.  This is the location of your drain, we recommend you organise your surveyor to come in 24-48 hours after us to survey the pipe, in case pegs are removed or dazzle washes away.

 

Q. I have been advised the CCTV Inspection is not complete due to a blockage, what happens now?

A. For Public lines, we will advise either Council or Watercare depending on the line type, once they have cleared the blockage we will return to site.  There is no charge from them to clear the line.
