Giant Concreteberg Blocks Drains

18th April 2019

Giant Concreteberg Blocks Drains



A gigantic mass of concrete has caused a 'concretberg' in a stretch of London's sewer system. The horrific build up is 330 feet long weighing in at a huge 105 tonnes and will cost thousands of pounds to clear.  Due to the sheer size of the clump it will be necessary to use old fashioned tools to chip away at the mass along with drills and high pressure water jetting, taking hundreds of man hours.

Tankers will also be required to assist with the removal pumping away waste 24 hours a day to protect the environment and prevent raw sewage backed up by the blockage flooding in to nearby properties.

Naturally in our line of work we are always coming up against build ups of waste caused by wet wipes, nappies and other hard waste along with non-biodegradable matter causing dreadful fatbergs. We clear these using a range of methods including high pressure water jetting and in some cases the need for one of tankers from our fleet is called in.
