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!

What you need to know about Oil interceptors!
It is beneficial to know why Oil Interceptors are needed, where they can be found, and why they should be maintained, so that owners and landlords don’t wind up breaching environmental regulations.
Oil interceptors also known as oil separators can be found in most medium to large car parks and forecourts and look similar to man holes. They can often be a mystery to the people responsible for them.
Why do we need Interceptors?
The simple answer is they prevent waste oil from entering the environment and contaminating rivers, streams and other bodies of water.
Where can an Interceptor be found?
As a general rule, they can be found in the following places.
- Car parks typically larger than 800m2 in area or for 50 or more car parking spaces
- Smaller car parks discharging to a sensitive environment
- Areas where goods vehicles are parked or manoeuvred
- Vehicle maintenance areas
- Industrial sites where oil is stored or used
- Refuelling facilities
- Any other site with a risk of oil contamination
Why you need to maintain an Interceptors?
If an Interceptor is not regularly maintained, the chambers become overwhelmed by oils and eventually begin to pass through the system contaminating the environment. Interceptors work by separating liquid hydrocarbons such as diesel, petrol and engine oil from surface water. These waste oils are then collected in the chambers of the interceptor. They also become prone to flooding which would result in oils being deposited on the surrounding surfaces and creating very dangerous situations, especially in car parks.
The most convenient way to clean an oil interceptor, keeping it fully functioning and at is best is to have it cleaned around every six months. There are a variety of minimal services that can help to ensure they remain clean
- CCTV Drain Surveys with its high spec technology can identify blockages,
- High Pressure Water Jetting accurately removes foreign objects and matter
- Vacuum Tankers to dispose of Liquid Waste keeping the drainage system clean.
