Drain cleaning and inspection

Harpers have the specialist equipment and personnel to carry out the cleaning, decontamination and removal of both hazardous and non-hazardous contaminants in drains, sewers, interceptors and lagoons.

Before any cleaning, it is crucial to fully understand the job required. That’s why our teams will carry out a site survey, risk assessment, produce a method statement and analyse the waste to be removed. This ensures we have the equipment necessary to do the job in a way that is cost effective and environmentally friendly.

High performance vehicles and accessories from our specialist fleet can work at depths of up to 60 metres, via openings of just 100 millimetres, toremove large volumes of liquid waste quickly and efficiently.

Our jetter recycling units can operate as an air mover or conventional vacuum unit together with the continuous recycling of water. This enables the unit to spend more time on the cleaning process before replenishing the jetting water. If large volumes of waste are to be lifted from lagoons or interceptors, the waste can be processed on site using our mobile or static filter presses. The role of the modern day filter press is to remove the filtrate from the sludgeand change it into a dry filter cake. The filtrate can either be reused on site or disposed of to drain. This cuts disposal costs and returns impressive savings

Over a period of time deterioration of drains and sewers can take place for many different reasons. By providing a CCTV survey, Harpers can quickly identify the reason for the problem and make recommendations on the best possible solution. See CCTV and Reports for more on this.

Based at both York and Teesside, Harpers can provide Drain Cleaning to you and your business.
