A selection of some funny trucks and tankers we’ve spotted. Enjoy!
The dangers of flood water should not be underestimated.
It’s powerful and just 6 inches of fast flowing flood water can knock you off your feet.
But it’s not just its power that can be hazardous but also the pollutants it contains.
Each year in the UK we produce around 75,000 tonnes of human feces and 6 billion gallons of urine, with these figures rapidly increasing year after year.
Waste water from our toilets along with rain water mix together in sewage pipes underground, which lead on to wastewater treatment plants for processing.
Extreme rainfall can flood these pipes forcing dirty water back up spilling raw untreated sewage into our homes, straight out into our streets or into our rivers.
If your property is flooded you can’t just wait for it to dry out then move back in.
Any wood in the house, all furnishings and even plaster board on the wall will soak up the water, containing bacteria, so ultimately it all has to be removed and refitted.

Received this this morning:
“I am writing this email to thank four members of your staff from the Croydon branch of Hydro Cleansing.
I found I had a burst sewage pipe in my front garden which was leaking raw sewage onto my driveway… the manhole cover had blown so my house and driveway had all been covered in excrement, sanitary products etc. Not only this but my toilet had also exploded, so my bathroom was also covered in excrement.
I just want to make sure their line manager or boss is aware of the excellent work they did for me. I know it was their job but to me they went above and beyond the call of duty. They were my knights in shining high vis jackets… It’s not pleasant work for them but they cracked on with no complaints.
They were true gentlemen and I hope they get thanked personally from their boss.
They were on site at my property with me and wouldn’t leave until the job was completely finished.
Thanks again to Dave, Luigi, Barry and Dave!”
