Case Study - Drain Cleaning in Berkhamsted

Drain Cleaning in Berkhamsted

The residential developers Taylor Wimpey has invested over £2 million in the Bearroc Park development in Berkhamsted since 2018. The newly built houses are situated in rural surroundings, conveniently located for the town centre. The planning of the development has maintained existing woodland, and the creation of a Woodland Management Plan ensures the long-term maintenance of local biodiversity.

The Drainflow team recently carried out foul and storm drain cleaning for the new Berkhamsted residential development.


Housing Development Storm Drain Cleaning

There are inevitably storm drains located near to construction sites, as was the case here, and there’s always the risk that trade waste causes stress to the sewer system. Drainflow drain clearance engineers use drain jetting to clean out any blockages, encrustations or deposits that may have amassed.

Housing Development Storm Drain Cleaning

Normally we’re able to run the drain jetting hoses straight from the drainage van. In this case though, the rural location meant that we needed an extension across a muddy field. Once this was in place, we were able to work from the mouth of the drain. The drain jetting hoses are capable of pressures in excess of 3,000psi; these are inserted into the system and the pressurised jets clean out the pipes.

Cleaning Foul Water Drains

Whilst storm drains carry surface water, foul drains carry the waste water from properties. The water is potentially contaminated with chemicals or effluent as it comes from a range of sources including toilets, sinks, showers and washing machines. For this reason, it needs to be sent to a sewage treatment plant. The foul water drain is cleaned out using drain jetting hoses in the same way as the storm drain.
