Our neighbours a few doors up in Hillfray Drive moved in over 20 years ago. Since then they have had several minor drain blockages that were easily sorted by rodding. Recently, they had a more serious blockage so they looked to bring out one of the more serious, better-equipped drains specialist.
We all saw as he jetted the drain, recovered the culprit ‘wipes’ but he wondered how so little could cause such a bad blockage? So he got out his CCTV drain camera and showed us a live colour TV picture of a natural gas yellow pipe that had been punched through their drain pipe.
My image, right is not as good as I witnessed on the screen as this is a scan of a print from the report the drains company supplied.
They got the evidence sent and have since got their gas supply separated from their drains! The lesson learned was to go for an established drains specialist such a Ace Environmental Services that I have been working with. We could soon be needing their new gutter cleaning service around here too. They use carbon fibre vacuum poles with CCTV to inspect the gutter & guide cleaning. CCTV gets everywhere these days, birdboxes, the baby’s nursery, you name it!
