The National Trust asked us to assist with a very famous outside toilet located in Carlyle’s House, a magnificent and well-preserved Victorian building in Chelsea, Central London.
The toilet – which is a Thomas Crapper original worth somewhere in the region of £8,000! – needed to be removed so we could get rid of the roots that were causing blockages in the system. Matt Williams, our Managing Director, joined us onsite and took it upon himself to lift out the toilet pan!
Once the roots had been removed and we had restored the drain’s integrity with a full CIPP liner, Mark, one of our lead engineers, installed the toilet back to its original position and let out one great big sigh of relief.
