Here at Blockaid Ltd, we’re proud to deliver a comprehensive range of drainage services to suit our clients’ needs. Over the years, we’ve helped all kinds of businesses, of all sizes, to resolve serious problems with their drains, including blocked drains in Manchester. In a fast-paced workplace, a blocked drain of any kind can lead to real issues.

We were recently called to the Stagecoach Bus Depot on Barlow Moor Road, with reports of a blocked drain. As one of the leading drainage companies in Manchester, servicing homes and businesses across the North-West, we were more than happy to take on the challenge.

Clearing a Grease Blockage in Manchester

Once our drainage engineers arrived on-site, we quickly realised that the blockage was being caused by grease from the canteen. Fats, oils and greases (known as FOG waste) are some of the most harmful materials commonly found in drains and sewers. Almost every blocked drain in Manchester has at least a small amount of grease in the obstruction.

As soon as we identified where the blockage was located, we used our high-pressure water-jetting unit to quickly break apart and dislodge the obstruction. The force of the water that we push into the system is strong enough to cause the blockage to break apart.

As soon as we’d cleared the grease blockage, the trapped waste flowed through the system and was quickly disposed of. Thanks to our high-pressure water-jetting, Stagecoach’s bus depot canteen returned to full working order.

Why Is Grease such an Issue in Sewage Systems?

Fats, oils and greases are a serious issue in all kinds of blocked drains. They will move through your drains but can easily become trapped somewhere in your system. FOG waste can then capture other waste, including solid waste, as it passes by. In some circumstances, continued disposal of FOG waste will cause the blockage to build up until it completely blocks up the pipe.

Fats, oils and greases can cause serious blockages in all kinds of systems. As such, they need to be cleared and disposed of as quickly as possible. Here at Blockaid Ltd, we can quickly dispose of all kinds of FOG waste blockages using our high-quality high-pressure water-jetting equipment.
