@ Jarvis & Ashland this morning. National Power Rodding Corporation performs the following services for the City of Chicago and large companies; catch basin & culvert cleaning, chemical grouting, digester & industrial tank cleaning, high-powered vacuum removal, pipe & tank cleaning, sanitary & storm sewer cleaning, sewer tv inspection, water blast cleaning. Its a dirty job but somebody has to do it. They also perform manhole rehabilitation. "Our manhole rehabilitation specialists can solve your manhole infiltration/inflow problems; restoring your structures to "better than new" condition in less time than it would take to replace them — and for a fraction of the cost." (Essentially these guys are the plumbers for the sewer system.)
Another testimonial regarding one of their extraordinary services."Clogged sewer lines can quickly turn from a nuisance into a nightmare of municipal health hazards - irate phone calls.Whether clogging is caused by sewage back-up or natural disasters, such as landslides, mudflows or floods, you need someone who can respond with the right type of equipment and experienced personnel. That's when you can count on a Carylon company." This advertisement is for mayors or higher-ups for cities. Thank God we aren't responsible for our own sewer systems. Imagine a private citizen reading this and calling them up for help (especially for a manhole rehab).
Update 6/28/13 10 am - Benjamin Woodard just wrote up a story of some folks that could use National Power Rodding Corporation's services.
