X Marks the Spot
21st June 2018 - in Oxford
A call came in at 8pm from a church in Oxford, though they requested that we attend in the morning, which we were happy to do. We sent David out the next day. The problem was three blocked manholes so David went to the furthest manhole to jet with his High Pressure Water Jetter, as he hoped this would clear the blockage and all three would start to flow again. Despite his best efforts he could not reach the blockage, which he was trying to get to from a blind connection from this manhole. As the building by the manholes was a new addition to the church, David asked if there were any plans on site and there were, which is always helpful! The plans revealed a manhole that was not visible previously. David dug in the location and underneath five inches of dirt was the missing manhole. This was quickly opened and jetted and this time he was able to reach the blockage and break it up, allowing the other manholes to flow again.
The customer was very pleased: “Relentlessly persevered! Awesome!”
