CCTV drain services
Hydro Cleansing Ltd is the leaders within the industry for carrying out professional sewer services, including Fatberg removal, helping to ensure that the nations waste water infrastructures are maintained, kept environmentally cleansed and more importantly flowing. You could call us the Fatberg busters as our fully trained expert engineers, most powerful Super Combination Tankers, and in some cases, our highly sophisticated water bound drainage camera Mega Float, trawl through the grime, glug and sludge to ultimately break down and remove fatbergs found in sewers.
What is a Fatberg?
Fatbergs are large congealed lumps made up of fat compounded together by oil, grease, sanitary items, wet wipes and other waste solids, congealed to sewer walls. Fatbergs have been found to grow to the size of a wide body jumbo jet, in other words, a Boeing 747 aircraft which ultimately block major networks resulting in major damage to sewer pipes.
Having been involved in projects which have seen us remove fatbergs, there is no doubt that fatbergs have become an increasingly common problem affecting the UK’S sewer networks. With fat, oils and grease (Fogs), sanitary products and wet wipes being poured and flushed down drains and pipes, and as reported earlier this year, plastic micro beads found in shower gels, facial scrubs and tooth paste are also proving to cause problems for our drainage systems.
Can Fatbergs really be turned into Green Fuel?
While fatbergs are problematic to sewer systems, fatbergs and sewer sludge have now also been recognised as a source of bio oil fuel –
Green Fuel. With fatbergs becoming ever challenging, experts have noted to find ways to turn sludge into between 25% and 40% of bio diesel. Bio diesel has also been recounted to be 80% cleaner for the environment than regular diesel, with the expectation that water companies might be able to find a use for the thousands of tonnes of waste found deep below the ground.

Soakaway Cleaning and Flood Prevention
Hydro-Cleansing Ltd completed a major flood prevention task, working to clear a soakaway on the Beachwood Estate in Orpington. The job involved finding and implementing a solution to reduce the risk of flooding to the area, by Jetting and cleaning soakaway surface water pipes and chambers, along with providing a conditional CCTV report. Hydro Cleanings veteran Rainmaker Tanker and her sister tanker Megatron accompanied the job to prove once again that there is no job we cannot do!
This extensive job required night works, together with traffic management, to cleanse and jet soakaway pipes and chambers from one stretch of a major road to the other. Hydro Cleansings specialist recycling Tanker – Megatron, together with a Bulk Tanker, CCTV unit and a specialist Confined Space Team, came together as the ultimate Hydro – Cleansing Dream Team to complete the task. Our expert engineers were praised for providing the client with the best service and enthusiasm for carrying out a successful job.

“On the fourth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me,
four broken pipes,
three Septic Tanks,
two feet of tree roots,
and Hydro Cleansing’s Mega-Heat…”
Day four of the Christmas countdown is upon us, and so is the latest blog instalment! Today’s blog is all about our talented CCTV team and their top of the range trenchless technology. Drain repair equipment has come a long way in the past few years. Discovering you have a cracked or damaged pipe no longer means digging up your garden and weeks of work. Advances in technology mean that repairs can begin almost immediately with no digging or disruption. Read on for a journey of drain lining discovery!
How does it work?
When you request a drain relining service the first step is to identify the cause of damage. We will send a CCTV unit into the pipe to assess the damage and check if a drain pipe relining is feasible. When we have completed this stage and agreed a drain relining is the best option, our team will start work!
What does it involve?
We will use one of our state of the art jet vac tankers to clean and remove any blockages within the drain or sewer pipe. This is to ensure the pipe has a good clean surface for the resin to bond to. We then insert a deflated packer (also known as a bladder) within the drain, pushing it through to the damaged area. Once we have confirmed we are covering the damaged part of the drain with the drain relining patch, the packer (bladder) will then be inflated.
This will force the drain relining to bond with and secure itself to the inside of the drain or sewer pipe. Once dried, this makes a completely secure, leak-proof seal. Once we have removed the packer our team will then re-insert the CCTV unit into the newly repaired pipe to make sure that the resin has cured and there are no leaks. Drain relining can patch drain pipes from as little as 100mm diameter up to 1.5 metres and is a permanent solution.
