Industrial Services & Utilities

The Brief

Businesses such as hotels, leisure facilities, nursing homes and hospitals can often experience blockages within their drainage systems. Without routine cleansing and descaling, the build-up of limescale and grease can cause drainage pipework to dramatically reduce in size, resulting in blockages and sometimes flooding.

The BKP industrial services crew have trained jetting operatives who use specialist, high performance equipment to help clear the drainage lines effectively. Because our team and equipment is so effective, we are also asked to pressure-wash paths, patios and acco channelling whilst on site!


To ensure BKP can cover every eventuality, we also have a fleet of Jet-Vac vehicles which have increased jetting capabilities, which is ideal for removing all types of debris, sludge and materials from large wet wells,mainline sewers, large diameter culverts, siphons, river and pond dredging. It is no wonder that BKP are regularly working with utility companies, local authorities and major industrial companies.

The Solution

Recently, a confined space entry into two disused storm tanks was undertaken by BKP's industrial cleaning crew, to remove vegetation and silts to allow the vessels to be restored to full operation. Once the main vegetation had been removed, using the MegaWhale tanker with its high-pressure water jetting facility, the team then focused on removing the heavy staining and debris on the walls and floor areas.

The client was extremely pleased with the results and provided BKP with an excellent testimonial:

“Just wanted to thank you and your team for doing an excellent job on cleaning up and getting rid of the plant life in the two storm tanks. Your team were very professional, and the equipment was in good working order (unlike some companies that we have used in the past).Please pass my thanks on to your team. I look forward to working with you again."
