Gas pipes

Following on from last week’s blog about what not to flush, we thought we’d share with you two photos of another avoidable blockage. Both pipes were damaged after a gas pipeline was thrust through them.

The photo below looks clean but the gas line caused a major backup in the drain. The blockage was located using our CCTV camera. 

This next photo shows how the gas pipeline shattered the drain. 

The best way to avoid this is to make sure you know exactly where on your property your drains are laid.
