London Drainage Facilities (LDF) has been working in partnership with Active Newham to deliver its drainage maintenance service to 3 of its leisure centres in the London Borough of Newham since April 2014. With 2 more of their sites being taken on board requiring a drainage maintenance programme to be put together, something clearly must be working!


From April 1, Active Newham instructed LDF to take over the monthly maintenance to all of its leisure centre’s internal and external drainage systems, including servicing all toilets, sinks, urinals, rainwater stack pipes, guttering, acco channel and car park areas.

In the past, Active Newham’s leisure centres have been hit with several instances of blocked toilets and sinks. From experience, LDF knows the only true way of successfully maintaining a drainage system is to routinely remove scale/silt deposits and flush through the pipework.

With the company’s mission to encourage people to be more active in their local community, it was imperative their facilities remained fully open at all times to meet the needs of their customers – LDF’s drain maintenance programme was the answer.

Fraser Ruthven, Growth & Strategy Manager at LDF, said: “By taking advantage of a LDF Service Plan, Active Newham have bought peace of mind, knowing their drainage system is operating at maximum flow capacity at all times, minimising the risk of disruptive and avoidable blockages and floods to their sites. It is a great partnership we share with Active Newham and long may it continue.

Mark Bell, Managing Director at Active Newham added: “With LDF’s drain maintenance programme it includes unlimited free-of-charge callouts to all serviced drainage as well as peace of mind which comes with knowing our annual for drainage work. LDF has provided an excellent service to us so far, which is exactly what we needed. We were having to deal with an extreme number of callouts on a weekly basis and LDF’s drain maintenance programme dried all of these up!”

LDF has been working with Active Newham since April 2014 and has been primarily responsible for the drainage maintenance, repair and upgrade of all 3 of its current sites situated across the Borough of Newham.

Established in 2006, LDF have fast become one of London and the South-East’s leading providers of planned, emergency and drain repair services.
