Do you know how these clips are to be affixed to the side of the sewer(s)? As H2S and other "friends" like to eat anything and everything, it'd be interesting to know how they able to prevent the conduit from falling off the roof of the pipe and into the black / grey water.

The "pig" that travels through the sewer installing the blown fibre cable (2nd pic) anchors them to the top of the sewer with the plastic clips.  They moved to plastic clips after discovering that even stainless steel corrodes inside sewers.
