Coping with the recent floods
In the last few weeks , Drain Doctor have been asked to help a number of clients with problems caused by the recent storms. We have alleviated flooded school playgrounds where the soakways could not cope with the volume of water. These were cleared by overpumping and enabled the children to use the outdoor space during breaktimes. More unusually, we have recently been asked to unblock a small canal which was overflowing. The sluuice gates had become inoperable and the overflow culverts were blocked. Drain Doctor were able to attend quickly and clear the blockages by high pressure water jetting ensuring the canal did not burst its bank.
