The team was called to unblock a drain for a local council.  On inspection, they found that one of the manhole chambers was unstable and required a full rebuild.  Manhole chambers – also known as inspection chambers, are an integral part of a drainage system allowing access for drains to be cleared, carry out essential repairs, act as a temporary storage point for excess water and provide access for inspection and surveys.

It is essential that manhole chambers remain accessible and in good working order to ensure the integrity of the drainage system. Our team carried out the rebuild and installed a new drain cover over the manhole chamber.
