Commercial Drainage Examples

Nursing Homes

Nursing Homes are susceptible to blockages due to items constantly being flushed away that should never go down a toilet. The list of usual suspects for blocking a toilet drainage system includes disposable gloves, green towels, wipes and incontinence pads. If you add to the list grease and fats from kitchens with poor grease control you have a ‘fat berg’ waiting to catch on any small  fault in the drain.

Many nursing homes are built from large old houses and still use the original (and therefore old) drainage system so the usual drainage problems of rough manholes, cracked and displaced pipes and root ingress will compound the situation.

At JSL we have the knowledge, equipment and skills to get your drainage working again and can advise on how to reduce future problems. Which may include periodic cleaning, CCTV inspection and repairs.


Meat Processing Factory

A meat processing factory involves a huge amount of water for washing down floors and equipment. This water along with bits of meat, bone and fat ends up in the drainage system. The grease will often line the drains and eventually the pipes will clog.

At JSL we can clear the blockage using a high pressure jetter and get you back in business quickly.
We can help you prevent future problems, give advise, offer solutions, organise a planned maintenance package, inspect drains and make plans with access points identified.

What can you do to prevent blockages?

Know your system. Where does it join the sewer? Where are the important manholes?
Have filters in gullies and regularly clean them.
You should have a grease trap. Arrange to have it emptied and cleaned regularly.
At the same time have the pipes descaled/hydro-scrubbed.

Warning. Failure to keep grease and fat from the main sewer sytem may bring penalties from Scottish Water and SEPA

What can you do!

  • Provide bins next to wc’s
  • Train staff and educate residents of the importance of the 3p’s
  • Only Pee Pooh and Paper down the loo
  • No dental floss, No sanitary towels, No wipes, Only toilet paper.
  • Install grease traps in kitchens. Empty the trap as recommended.
