Case Study – Drain Cleaning in Wixams, Bedfordshire

Drain Cleaning in Wixams, Bedfordshire

Since 2007 the Bedfordshire town of Wixams has been steadily growing and maturing. The site covers just over 700 acres which was formerly the Elstow Munitions Factory during WWII, and then Elstow Storage depot. Wixams has plots for 4,500 new homes which are well underway, 3 schools have been built, and the town’s retail centre is growing fast.

The Drainflow team recently carried out foul and storm drain cleaning in the new town development.


Storm Drain Cleaning Near Construction Works

In areas like Wixams that are being newly developed the storm drains can experience stress from the trade waste which is flowing through the sewer system. We use high power drain jetting to clear any deposits, encrustations or blockages which are typical of this kind of environment.

We work from the mouth of the drain by inserting powerful jetting hoses which are capable of pressures in excess of 3,000psi. The pressurised jets flush through the system leaving the drains clean and free flowing.

Foul Water Cleaning

Foul water drains carry water from residential properties. This is the waste that’s produced washing machines, toilets, sinks. Since this is water that’s potentially contaminated with chemicals or effluent, it is sent to a sewage treatment plant. For this reason, storm and foul drainage is kept separate. Both systems can, however, be cleaned using drain jetting hoses.
