Low-tech solution

The Team from Wellington Water

Sometimes a low-tech tool is the answer.

A blocked stormwater pipe in Titahi Bay led to a CCTV investigation, which identified a blockage about 7 meters from the manhole cover. A water jetter was winched through the pipe and cleared out cans, bottles, Lego blocks and other bits of plastic, but a tangle of roots seen on the screen wouldn’t budge.

Here we have Servicepersons Grayson (at the back holding the handle) and Tito using a corkscrew extended to 7 meters to clear roots out of the pipe.
