Hydro Cleansing Ltd
Thanks to urban explorers and modern photographic technology, some of the most magnificent hidden engineering triumphs lying, hidden, beneath the streets of the world’s greatest cities have been recorded, in all their former glory, and posted online.
Below are some of Hydro Cleansing’s favorite snaps of sewers and drains, from London’s arched, Victorian Gothic drains, to still working ancient Roman systems and infamous giant storm drains.
Received this this morning:
“I am writing this email to thank four members of your staff from the Croydon branch of Hydro Cleansing.
I found I had a burst sewage pipe in my front garden which was leaking raw sewage onto my driveway… the manhole cover had blown so my house and driveway had all been covered in excrement, sanitary products etc. Not only this but my toilet had also exploded, so my bathroom was also covered in excrement.
I just want to make sure their line manager or boss is aware of the excellent work they did for me. I know it was their job but to me they went above and beyond the call of duty. They were my knights in shining high vis jackets… It’s not pleasant work for them but they cracked on with no complaints.
They were true gentlemen and I hope they get thanked personally from their boss.
They were on site at my property with me and wouldn’t leave until the job was completely finished.
Thanks again to Dave, Luigi, Barry and Dave!”
