Gully Emptying in Stevenage, Hemel Hempstead & across Hertfordshire
Road gullies are a method of collecting
Surface water from roads and diverting it into the drainage or sewer system. They generally have a trap or filter to prevent soil, dirt, and other sediment from entering those systems, where they can cause significant damage. Over time, the sediment settles and builds up in these traps, preventing the draining of water from the road. When this happens, you need a local, reliable gully emptying service provider to remove the sediment and clean out the trap.

Professional Gully Emptying in Stevenage, Hemel Hempstead and across Hertfordshire
As your experienced local drainage contractors, we have much to offer our customers across Hertfordshire and the South East. Here is a few of our more popular services…
Our first task is to remove the sediment that has been deposited in the gully by the constant ingress of road water. We perform this task manually using specialist tools to clear it out. Where the blockage is mostly liquid or semi-liquid, we use our combination tankers to suck out any sediment with a high-power vacuum attachment.
With the blockage removed, our drainage contractors switch from vacuum tanks to jet washers. These high-pressure devices soon get rid of any residue caused by the build-up of dirt and sediment. This not only allows road water to collect freely, but it also slows down the future accumulation of dirt and debris within the gully.
Reactive Gully Emptying
While sediment and debris builds up over time in all road gullies, there comes a point where they can no longer allow the passage of road water. When this occurs, the water builds up, leading to potential flooding. If this happens, our team can arrive to unblock and clean out the gully quickly, making it fit for purpose again.
If your road gully has overflowed due to an unwanted blockage, we have the tools and the staff to deal with it. Using our high-capacity vacuum tanks, we quickly remove the floodwater, granting us access to the gully beneath. Then we are able to empty this of silt and sediment in the usual manner before cleaning it.
Scheduled Gully Emptying
Reactive gully emptying can result in damage to the gully itself, as well as the road and drainage system, due to overflowing. A more efficient and cost-effective way to handle the situation is with a gully emptying schedule. We have these in place with several local councils, emptying and cleaning all their road gullies every few months.
