Blocked Outside Drain
At Alton Pumps we often get calls for an blocked outside drain. But it’s not often from a livery yard. The stable owners rang us with blocked drain issues which resulted in the drains backing up into the yard causing standing water. On investigation we found that horse waste and straw had got into the drains causing the blockage.
Our tanker team attended the site to empty and clear the drains, followed by a thorough jet wash to ensure that any stray debris was cleared. If you experience external drain blockages it is advisable to contact a professional drainage company to ensure the blockage is cleared in full and to avoid a repeat occurrence.
If a drain is left blocked at a livery yard it can seriously threaten the health of your horses. Bacteria in the water can enter the horse bloodstream through tiny scratches and cuts. If a blockage isn’t cleared when it rains the drain will overflow and saturate the surrounding area causing a health hazard to both you and your horse. External drains can become clogged for a number of reasons – Read our Top 5 Blocked Drain Causes to help monitor what is entering your drainage system.
