Maintenance prevention

One of our local engineers was continually called out to a small industrial outlet in Gillingham, they repeatedly had blocked toilets and we were unable to ascertain the reason for this.After carrying out CCTV camera survey we found out that there were evidence of scale and dislodged joints that were further down the line towards the main sewer this side of the interceptor.  We pointed out to the customer on CCTV system that this was probably not the reason for the toilet blocking continually due to the distance between the toilet pan and the area where the drain is damaged.

ARD suggested to the customer that a de-scale be carried out and a felt and resin liner to be put in place to prevent any further emergency works i.e. expensive excavation in the near future.  ARD also recommended further works to carry out CCTV on the toilet pan due to it being tiled in and surrounded by wooden boxing, it became apparent after inserting a 25ml digital pan camera head, on a CCTV screen that the pan had been installed using an offset multi quick which was allowing the toilet to build up tissue paper continually behind the W.C.  The customer then asked us to completely change the toilet and connection into the drain to prevent any further call outs.
