PRESS RELEASE 25 January 2018
Hydro Cleansing can confirm that they were prosecuted by Thames Water, in pursuant of the Water Industry Act 1991 but NOT FOR THE THEFT OF WATER as reported in Thames Waters Press Release 24 January 2018 and then sensationalised by local and National Press.
The matter was dealt with amicably and Hydro Cleansing fully complied and are fully compliant with the Water Industry Act 1991 in relation to the extraction of water from Wash Outs, using a Licensed Standpipe supplied by the approved Third Party. Though there is very little or no information available regarding the correct process for the extraction of water.
As a result of the prosecution, Hydro Cleansing paid £3000.00 in fines to Thames Water for the incorrect connection of Fire Hydrants / Wash Outs (W/O) and associated legal costs incurred by Thames Water.
All relevant procedures regarding the connection have been increased and superseded over the last 18 months despite no interjection from Thames Water or their investigation team and the appointed third party provider of licences, were unable to help with updated procedures.
Hydro Cleansing would like to put it on record that prior to the prosecution, it was not made clear the extraction of water from Hydrants is now illegal and that the correct procedures were to use a Wash Outs (W/O) with a food hygiene certificate, specialist training, anti-bacterial spray required and specialist standpipe, despite Hydro Cleansing having already purchased the relevant licensed equipment and not supplied any booklet or information at time of purchase.
At no point did Hydro Cleansing knowingly act in an illegal fashion, which was reflected in the final judgement and Hydro Cleansings solemnity to the situation.
Hydro Cleansing have requested on numerous occasions the location of available W/O’s from Thames Water and the third party who supply Standpipes on behalf of numerous Water Authorities, this information they have been unable to provide to date.
Hydro Cleansing continue to work closely with major water authorities to ensure compliance and legislation of extraction and disposal of waste from numerous streams that are maintained throughout London and the Home Counties.

Christmas Jumper Day 2017
On Friday 16th Of December, our team brought the festive cheer to the Hydro Cleansing headquarters by wearing their most extravagant Christmas garments! From dresses to jumpers, one member of the Sales Team pulled out all the stops by wearing a bespoke Christmas suit!
Our winner for best jumper had to go to Deborah who outshone everyone in her stunning Christmas Elf dress and Hat.

Keeping your drains clear of turkey fat and all the trimmings!
This year there has been a great deal of press and media surrounding the infamous Fatbergs, found in sewers across London. Our flagship tankers Terminator and Megatron carried out a number of remarkable fatberg removal projects successfully this year. The success of these projects proved just how reliable, robust, ground-breaking these cutting edge, powerful unique Combination Units are.
After all the festivities from Christmas and the New Year, we find an astounding amount of drainage blockages that need servicing due to turkey fat, trimmings and other Christmas holiday waste materials being disposed of inappropriately through drainage systems.
We understand the stress that goes into making Christmas and New Year celebrations, days to remember, often resulting in proper drainage etiquette going to pot! So if you should require drainage, sewer, cesspit, fat trap removal, clearance and maintenance after the holidays then we are one call away.
Thank You! Here’s to a bigger, better, brighter, bolder, 2018 for Hydro Cleansing Ltd
