Cleaning sewers is not a glamorous job but somebody’s got to do it. Maintaining our sewers and keeping our drainage systems healthy, flowing and efficient is of utmost importance. It can’t be seen in everyday life, but there is a enormous network of public and private underground sewers that need regular maintenance in order to keep them working properly.

To prevent public sewers and drains from blocking regular cleaning sewers and gullies is needed to remove silt, debris and root mass. On a domestic level, households can avoid costly emergency drain blockages by not pouring hot fat or milk down drains where these warm liquids subsequently cool and solidify causing blockages.

Instead, by tipping them into a container where they can solidify and be thrown in the bin prevent any fat build up in drain pipes which subsequently traps other food stuffs or particles and causes blockages. Baby wipes should never be disposed of down the toilet. The only items your toilet should welcome with open arms are the three Ps…paper, pee and poo.

No one likes a blocked toilet or smelly blocked drain, so that’s where our drainage superheros come into the equation, we like to call ourselves the 4th emergency service!
