Cleaning of Foul Chamber
Combination Tanker and Jetter
A 2.3m deep foul chamber with two submersible pumps, at ground level required cleaning due to a build-up of waste within the chamber. This required a combination vacuum tanker capable of removing the waste within the chamber and a jetting facility that was small enough for the access limitations. All persons had to be DBS checked, of which our engineers are.
The 7.5T combination vacuum tanker, with a drainage camera fitted was used in this instance due to the size limitations and parked locally to the chamber. The combination tanker was used to remove all debris from the chamber and then jet wash the chamber. The discharge pipework and manifold was then jetted along its entire length to the terminal access cover location. Upon completion a CCTV camera was then used to ensure that the pipework was cleaned and there were no other issues.
The school was able to manage the waste entering the chamber and alleviate the potential for failure of the system and thus mitigate emergency attendance costs and time delays along with minor disruption to the school and its students.
