While the internet can certainly be a terrible place, there are odd nooks and little pockets that are meant for people who love a satisfying solution. Recently, people have been posting TikToks of clogged outdoor drains, and they’re surprisingly relaxing. Maybe it’s watching low-stakes problem-solving that keeps people going. Whatever it is, we’re just as obsessed with cleaning drains on TikTok. In fact, we feel quite blushed.

If you’re anything like us, you’re asking yourself, “What’s clogging up in the great outdoors?”

The answer? Apparently everything and everyone. The most common culprit seems to come in the form of a slightly flooded street like in this video where the weapon of choice to rectify the situation is almost always a rake. After removing several pieces of trash, a small whirlpool will appear while the water begins to disappear. Warning, these videos are not for people suffering from trypophobia – fear of holes.

Some users find the whole process strangely fulfilling, while others seem focused on the listening experience. “The sound of the water is sooooo relaxing,” he commented @tea_with_ladii below yet another scene of intense water drainage. A lot of people seem intrigued by the idea that this is actually someone’s job.

Yes, unclogging drains is a real chore.

Some of the TikToks on the @unclogged_drains profile are from the Post 10 YouTube channel. It’s run by a man named Dave who, according to the about section makes “videos about unclogging clogged sewers and drains, trains, experiments, machines, animals, trailcams, how-to’s, aquariums, reviews, things i love and more.” He didn’t just stumble across it, it’s a learned skill.

Dave is actually trained in culvert inspections. What is a culvert? Great question. Accordingly civil today, a site devoted to civil engineering, a culvert is a “tunnel that passes a stream under a road or railroad. A culvert can serve as a bridge for traffic to pass on, for the purpose of a bridge or flow regulator.” They are usually a tunnel under a road that helps “limit the flow of water in a controlled manner”.

This endeavor is also hugely popular, as noted by the nearly 700,000 people who follow Dave’s YouTube channel. Below a video where Dave walks us through the Clearing of two culvert pipes, one follower commented: “I’m taking refuge in this channel. I love how this guy manages to make really good videos and show us how it all works, very satisfying.” And that’s really the point of finding contentment in a world that’s often ruled by chaos feels. Hats off to Dave, an agent of contentment.
