For over 20 years Ken Twydell has owned and operated a small, local drainage repair company, Draincure from offices in Paignton, Devon, covering a 30-mile working radius. The company works generally on domestic projects and emergency works, such as blockage clearance, cleaning and survey works, with the company’s works being primarily in the 4 ” (100 mm) and 6 ” (150 mm) diameter pipe range, although other diameters are possible. The company’s client list includes everything from individual house owners and local surveyors seeking drainage reports, through Housing Associations and local councils to local and national property letting agencies, some in the very high value end of the market. Some eight years ago, Ken was joined in the business by his wife Julie who returned to work after raising the couple’s children.

MC Construction Chemicals, along with its UK representative CJ Kelly Associates Ltd, is pleased to announce the launch of a new all-encompassing Manhole Renovation product range, ‘ombran’. The most recent statistics, reported by some 27 countries across Europe, have shown that there are some 60 million manholes currently in operation. A further report showed that, of these manholes, around 12% (or 7.2 million) are in a state of deterioration to the point where renewal is required. Furthermore, cost estimates also showed that the average cost of fully rehabilitating one manhole is about €2,250. This equates to a total of around €16.2 billion for the 7.2 million manholes needing repair.
