I thought I might as well ask in here in case some of the forum members might be able to help.

In the baths there are two "drains" that due to lack of maintenance have completely clogged up. These are no ordinary drains though, one of them contains a valve that allows the sea water in (and out) and we need these cleared and working again to progress to the next stage (sealing and painting the pool)

Essentially the drains are long deep pits (about 3 feet wide and 15-20 feet deep) at the end of the pool, covered in steel grids - and are clogged up with years of mud and sludge brought in on high tides, so as you can imagine they are quite smelly.

I understand we need something called a "jetter" ? and a big pump that would be fit to remove heavy sludge? access is a bit of a problem and therefore if the pump is big and heavy it might have to be craned in?

if anybody can help would they please get in touch with myself or any save our baths action group member.

thanks :D
