Another brand new quality vehicle added

Further expansion means another brand new quality vehicle added to the Hydro Fleet!

To meet with increased demand for clients that require up to the minute, time saving equipment, we have invested once again in a new Jetting & Descailing unit to clear blockages, roots etc faster.

With working pressures of 4000 psi and a specialist range of cleaning nozzles, attachments and root cutting heads, our new Harben/Flowplant van pack jetting unit will make short work of any blockages encountered during our surveys.

If you need high quality, time saving CCTV condition surveys, please get in touch for a demonstration.

 

 

New Look for Hydro

After many years on the Revenge Road Industrial Park, Hydo have updated their familiar liveries and brand image with a new makeover for their premises.  To continue with all of the upgrades and investment in new equipment over the past 12 months, Hydo Descaling have invested in the appearance of their head office in Lordswood.

Going for growth in 2017, Hydro are a company moving forward.

 

New Investment for Hydro

Super Fast Response –  New equipment
speeds up response and makes light of even inaccessible areas!

To keep up with ever increasing demand and to bring down our response times we’ve been investing again in our CCTV survey division !!

The vehicle has had a custom fit out incorporating the latest invertor power technology by Wilker UK in Cheshire (long gone are the days of noisy air polluting generators!). It’s been updated to include the latest Minicam Proteus equipment capable of surveying pipes from 100mm – 2000mm diameter.

The kit includes steerable tractor units and pan/tilt CCTV camera heads as well as conventional push rod systems. We’ve also included a stand-alone battery unit and carry out trolley enabling us to undertake surveys of large diameter culverts etc. in inaccessible sites where vehicle access is not viable.

Please contact us for further details, price and availability.

Blocked sewers

We’ve been busy cleaning sewers for a client using our MegaWhale Combi Jetting Unit. The sewers were previously heavily silted and causing backing up and flooding to local properties.

All silt and blockages were removed in one shift and everything was left running freely!

Leak Damage Causing Subsidence?

Did you know that leaking drainage is a major cause of subsidence? We’ve recently been busy repairing defective drainage pipe joints for one of our clients using cured in place pipe lining (CIPP) rather than conventional excavation.

This is a much cheaper and environmentally friendly option meaning all works were completed in one day with no mess or disruption!

What Can Hydro Do For You?

Hello and welcome to our blog!

As experts in our industry, our blog will educate you on any industry updates in addition to company wide news and findings, so make sure that you are kept in the know and keep visiting!

What services do we offer?

As drain cleaning professionals, we offer many services besides regular drain unblocking, some of these include:

CCTV surveys

CCTV drainage surveys are a critical part of drainage professional’s arsenal. In the past, a drainage contractor would have to use experience alone to work out what the problem was with a blocked drainage pipe. After the introduction of CCTV survey equipment, images of the inside of the drainage pipe can now be relayed to a computer where a visual analysis of the problem can take place. This means that the number of unnecessary drain excavation jobs has decreased exponentially, as the drainage firm will be able to formulate a plan to remove the problem instead of excavating to see what is happening.

Drain jetting

Drain jetting is the process where a high pressure jet of water is directed down the drain to remove any debris which may have accumulated within the pipe. This could be non-flushable items such as sanitary wear, nappies, contraceptives or even a build-up of congealed fat. High pressure water jetting proves extremely useful to drain jetting firms because instead of using physical methods such as rods to remove a clog, which can damage the inside of the pipe, the jet of water washes through the blockage harmlessly whilst also cleaning the inside of the pipe in the process.

Drain liner repair

After a drainage company has performed a survey on a problematic drain they may find that the drain is cracked, broken or even deviated. If this is the case they will then have one of two options – either excavation, to replace the damaged section of drain or if possible the installation of a drain liner repair. If a drain liner repair is possible, it will mean that excavation will be reduced to a minimum level and the drain will be able to be repaired with the minimum of disruption. In this process a resin impregnated liner is blown into the damaged section of pipe. The liner is then inflated to the internal pipe diameter and left to set. The resin bonds to the original pipe and after the liner has set the pipe will once again be able to carry waste with no problems.

We implement all manner of drainage solutions, from simple sink unblocking to the installation and maintenance of sewer pump stations.

Sewers And Drains – A simple guide to who is responsible for what.

Hello, and welcome to our blog,

 

Sewers And Drains – a simple guide to who is responsible for what.

There are an awful lot of pipes, drains and sewers hidden away from view inside homes and under the ground – so it’s worth bearing in mind that responsibility for their upkeep is in the hands of different organisations and people – including you!

What are you, the home owner responsible for?
The pipes, gutters and drains in and around your home, including the drain from your property up to your boundary. If you have a problem with these, you’ll need to call a drainage company – but check your insurance first as you may be covered.

What United Utilities is responsible for?
The big public sewers that take sewage and rainwater run-off to waste water treatment works; the pipes from your property’s boundary that lead into the public sewer; and many of the shared drains where several property’s drains meet together before they join the public sewer. If you suspect that one of these is blocked, please contact United Utilities.

What your local authority is responsible for?
Road gullies; these are small grate-covered openings at the edge of the roads, and are used to drain surface water from the highway. If you’re worried about blockages or smells from these, please call your Council.

The River Irk Looking an interesting colour !!!

Hello, and welcome to our blog,

We have been trying to get our heads round why the River Irk has changed to a beautiful orange colour, have you got any ideas???

‘Stunned environment officers have been left baffled by a city centre stretch of water that has turned an unusual shade of orange.

Eagle-eyed residents in Manchester reported the unexplained phenomenon yesterday afternoon, after spotting water in the River Irk looking distinctly darker than usual.’

The UK Weather – How it affects our drainage systems.

Hello and welcome to our blog!

The UK Weather; how it affects our drainage systems.

Ah, our wonderful United Kingdom. Our country the boasts ever changing, unpredictable weather conditions like what we experienced this weekend. With our summer undoubtedly bring rain and even with the rising temperatures and humidity we can be inundated with freak storms and flash floods that cause destruction all over the country.

Unwanted presents from Mother Nature

The lovely, summer weather, combined with our standard heavy downpours, creates the perfect environment for your flourishing flowers and thriving trees, yet the speedy growth of the roots can cause a problem for underground drains. The power of Mother Nature means that these roots can penetrate drains, causing them to crack, leak and become blocked.

Unfortunately, when these types of blockages and problems occur, the only way to pinpoint their exact location is with a CCTV camera. Who is accountable for the clearance of the blockage depends on where the problem is, responsibility may lie with the property owner or the local water company. If you suspect a blockage in one of your drains, contact your water company who will then determine who is liable to pay for clearance.

Dealing with Blockages

Big storms and large measures of rainfall go hand in hand. Heavy rainfall can cause the moss on the rooftops of properties to come away from the tiles and fall into the external drains. The moss then blocks the drains, reducing the amount of water than can flow freely away from properties, causing floods. Floods can have disastrously detrimental effects on people’s homes, causing significant amount of damage as well as creating foul-smelling odours for residents.

It is possible in some cases to limit the effects of blockages caused by leaves and moss. It is a good idea to check your external drains on a regular basis, as this will reduce the effect of this kind of debris and go some way to preventing flooding in your property.
