Sewer Cleaning

Sewer cleaning is a tough job, but someone has got to do it! Luckily, here at Kwik Flow we are devoted to doing the public services jobs no-one else wants to do. Our highly efficient and professional team of drain and sewer specialists know exactly what it takes to get the job done when sewers are starting to get old and slow-flowing. We follow the same process for each sewer, so you know our service is consistent and thorough.

First we will make sure to do a thorough inspection of the sewer, to make sure there are no current blockages, structural issues or causes for concern. We will do this using a range of techniques. In some cases we will use surveying equipment that can be used above ground and do not require us to get inside. If there is not the space for it above ground, then we will use remote-controlled cameras to enter the space and look around. If required, we will then also enter the sewer to check any significant areas for concern before undertaking a clean.

Initially provided me with an estimated time scale and kept me informed fully as to eta. The operative attended to site and again kept me up-to- date with progress and final outcome. Can’t praise Kwikflow enough. Well done everyone concerned.

Professional Sewer Line Cleaning Service

Once we have surveyed the sewer and confirmed that there are not any issues that would affect the cleaning (or that the cleaning would make worse!), then we can begin our work. There are a number of ways we can clean a sewer, and which method we use would of course depend on the task at hand and the surroundings. Here is a brief rundown of the various methods we can use:

Rodding: One of the most used methods; Rodding is similar to when you use an augur (one of those metal snake-like tools) to clear your drain of any debris, and physically push the blockage through. We will use coiled GRP, which are flexible, but semi-rigid lengths of metal, to push out any items present in small sewers, and generally clear it of everything but water.

Jetting: This is the technique we use most often now, due to its safety, efficiency and lack of long-term damage to the sewer piping, especially now we are able to reuse the water that we shoot out. Jetting is a method where we shoot out very high-pressure jets of water into the sewer and its walls in order to loosen any items, material and fats, sediment and anything else stuck to the walls, the water than goes downstream into the sewer where it gets removed from the water. This items are removed using a vacuum, and the water is re-used into the jet washers. Due to the nature of it, the jet washer is now normally just the one vehicle that pulls up and does all the work.

Winching: Finally, the least used but required in certain circumstances. If the sewer is filled with silt, sand or a similar substance, a metal bucket with holes in the bottom for water to pass through, is fed through the sewer, and winched back (either by hand, or mechanically from a vehicle), in order to let water pass freely, but collect all the small debris.

If you require residential or commercial sewer cleaning please give us a call and our team will be with you as soon as possible.
