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.

“On the sixth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Six golden watches,
Five blogs in one,
Four broken pipes,
Three septic tanks,
Two feet of tree roots,
And Hydro Cleansing’s Mega Heat…”
“On the first day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me,
Hydro Cleansing’s Mega-Heat…”
The twelve day countdown to Christmas has officially begun, so to celebrate and boost our festive cheer, we will be posting on the blog EVERY DAY UNTIL CHRISTMAS! Each one of our posts will be specifically focused around one of our services, starting with our very own Mega-Heat! So sit back, relax, and let the Hydro Cleansing Christmas content fest begin!
Put simply, Mega-Heat is a high pressure, high temperature jetting service… however, if you dig a little deeper, you’ll see that it is so much more! It can reach temperatures of up to 105°C and jet at up to 3000psi. Worried about chemicals or damaging surfaces? Not with Mega-Heat! The power and heat that this impressive bit of kit combines make tackling oil spills, graffiti or dirty guttering fast and hassle free for our expert engineers, without having to use any abrasive or chemical products.
Mega-Heat is one of our key fleet members that we use to tackle a variety of problems around London and the South East. From blasting off chewing gum on the busy streets of our capital, to making industrial machinery sparkle, we offer unrivalled efficiency and manoeuvrability. This is in part thanks to our unique van mounting; usually a unit with these capabilities would be carried on the back of a trailer, or by a team. By custom mounting ours into the van, we are able to access and start work immediately. This cuts down response time, the number of vehicles needed and ultimately the time needed to complete the job.
Some of the jobs that Mega-Heat can be used for are:
– Graffiti Removal –
– Concrete Cleaning –
– Gutter Cleaning –
– Stone & Building Cleaning –
– Oil, Fat & Grease Removal –
– Floor Cleaning –
– Chewing Gum Removal –
– Paint Removal –
