One of the benefits of the DALROD network is that we have service centres up and down the country. Our network of business owners all operate as a close knit group (like a family). They often communicate, swap advice and make recommendations to each other. This closeness benefits our local centres as there is always something new to learn in the drainage business!

Occasionally there is a need to combine forces in order to get a large job successfully completed. This usually involves bringing two neighbouring areas together into one territory.

Recently DALROD Chelmsford & Southend and DALROD Maidstone teamed up at the Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford.

A Big Job

Hospitals are notoriously large facilities and accessing the drains can be tricky for our vans and service vehicles. The work involved the team cleaning out the waste disposal drains underneath the site. Because this was such a large job it required the extra manpower of two technicians rather than one.

A hospital of this size will be relying on their drains to carry away vast quantities of wastewater. Consistent use from the laundry, canteen, toilet facilities and wards can all add to the daily pressures imposed on the system. 

With such a large and heavily used network, it is important to have regular cleans to prevent any unwanted build ups or blockages in the drains themselves.

Hospitals drainage systems are always under strain!

Prevention is Key

Emergencies can occur at any time, however many of these are preventable with regular maintenance like this.

A full clean and jetting of the drains was performed to ensure they were running effectively, leaving no nasty surprises lurking beneath the surface. 

“This was a great team effort with a neighbouring franchise,” said Chris Simpkins Director of DALROD Chelmsford & Southend. “We know that we can rely on the other DALROD territories for assistance when we need them, and that is a comforting thought. It enables us to provide the best quality service to our customers, every time.”
