Hydro Cleansing Will Support You Through the Flooding Season.
Following Storm Angus, Wales and the South of England are currently being battered by high winds and even higher levels of rain fall, and as your Mother would say; prevention is better than cure! If that doesn’t inspire you to get outside and start checking your culverts and clearing your drains, then take a look at some of our flood work from previous years.
Clearing a Culvert Under the A3 Highway:
Here are some of our engineers clearing a culvert beneath the A3 on behalf of a local council. Our expert engineers were down there, in full confined space PPE to cut through the build up of silt with high pressure jets, and of course Megatron, which was on site to suck the waste away for disposal at an impressive 6000 cubic feet per minute. Megatron’s state of the art liquid ring pump creates a vacuum within the bulk tanker in order to efficiently fill it with waste, and also allows a second bulk to replace it while it disposing of the waste. This meant that the work could be continuous and we didn’t have to deploy extra vehicles which allowed us to get the job done quickly.
Flood Response at a Nursing Home in Bristol:
Saving your granny is all in a days work for our teams, or at least back in June it was. We sent out our specialist engineers in a combination vacuum tanker unit to help out a nursing home near Bristol, where the flood waters were about to reach the property. The power of our tanker meant our team could remove the water from the flooded garden area and front of the property where the flood was disrupting traffic and scaring pensioners. Job done!
So if you’re worried about flooding in your area, give us a call! Let us know where the potential flood risk is and we will call the associated council for you and arrange any necessary works. Contact us here 24/7!
