A Drains Limited drain engineer was in the village of Crowthorne in the Bracknell Forest district of South-Eastern Berkshire this week unblocking a communal drain.
There was a complaint of very strong sewage in the air so our drain engineers were despatched on emergency call-out. When our drain engineer first lifted all the foul manhole covers to see if they could find a blockage none were found. They then proceeded to then lift all the rainwater manhole covers which were found to be completely blocked, as you can see from the first picture above.
The blockage in the drainage was severe so the drain engineer used specialist high pressure jetting equipment to clear the blockage. Once the blockage had been removed the drain engineer flushed through the drainage system, removing any further debris to leave it in a free-flowing condition.
