Reduce the environmental risk of blocked drains and separators

By law, any site which stores oil or fuel must have a clean, unblocked drainage system or separator, that contains any spills within its boundaries. Draining direct hydrocarbon pollutants to an on-site fuel separator, filters them out from rainwater that can then run off the site. 

However, if these channels are not maintained and allowed to fill with mud, silt, leaves, litter or other debris, it can cause a blockage. This prevents leaked fuels reaching their final, safe destination - overflowing, and potentially contaminating local ecosystems, homes and businesses.

Our experts and leading-edge equipment reduce the risk of blocked drains and separators via a drainage work schedule of planned preventative maintenance. This rigorous programme sees regular attendance by drainage engineers in a VAC tanker, with a high-pressure water jetter that removes anything that should not be in the drainage system and separator.

Uniquely, every job is reported in great detail, including photographs before, during and after all work, logging who was on-site and when.

Our total drainage services include reactive and rapid response drain and separator unblocking, with affected systems cleaned as needed.

Our fixed price services contract gives you unlimited access to specialist drainage engineers and their state of the art equipment and tech, with no call out charges. A nationwide fleet and strategic distribution of experts cuts travel time and customer costs.

Our services include...

Cess waste removal

We go far beyond the standard industry service. Rather than simply uplifting waste, removing and disposing it, we manage drainage systems, offering solutions and guidance on anything that is amiss.

Sewage treatment plant install and maintenance

We provide specialised sewage treatment plant and pumping station installation and maintenance.

We can support customers in both emergencies and during planned treatment plant servicing or pumping station services.

Foul drainage unblocking and jetting service

Our specialists also look after foul drains and the commercial drains of some of the country’s leading companies. Brand new vans carry world leading tech, with CCTV drain surveys identifying snag points and fractures that might cause blockages and leaks before top of the range high pressure jets clean completely.

Repairing foul drains in one day instead of three weeks

The No-Dig Patch Repair system is an innovative product we use to repair individual cracks in foul drain pipes or re-line whole sections up to 15 metres long.

Traditionally, when a problem is identified with a drain, on a forecourt for example, it has to be dug up which has a number of implications:

  • There are health and safety implications with pipes being near fuel, electrical and LPG lines
  • Half the forecourt will be closed to customers resulting in loss of trading and reputation damage, and there is significant cost involved with the labour
  • It takes time to dig a trench, get rid of the spoil, secure the trench, put up vapour barriers etc which can prove costly

The No-Dig Patch Repair system reduces the disruption on site as it takes on average one day to repair a section of pipe(s) compared with around three weeks using the traditional system of digging up and replacing the faulty pipe(s).

In a forecourt setting, based on average vehicle fuel tank sizes and daily visits to a forecourt, that could be a saving of nearly £250,000, per site per repair.

How it works

The system involves adding a resin liner to a damaged pipe.

The resin impregnated liner may be blown into the drain using specialised equipment or winched through depending on circumstances.

A removable inflatable tube is then blown in under pressure and the liner is forced into contact with the previously defective pipe until curing takes place.

Our highly skilled engineers calculate the chemical proportions of the resins taking into account the ambient temperature and ultraviolet conditions.

The resin liner also improves the flow rate by reducing friction and providing a highly resilient, permanent, seamless tube inside the existing pipe or drain.

It has a ten year guarantee.

Separator Servicing

Separators are designed to trap harmful substances before they enter the surrounding area. 

Regular separator maintenance is essential to safeguard businesses that handle and store oil or other hazardous materials.
