Beat the mess of an overflow
There are many tell tell signs of a blocked drain and it is always better to react fast before problems become worse. These are some of the first signs of a potential blockage:
- Smell – this is often due to air pressures building up in a blocked pipe
- Rising water in the toilet pan which slowly goes down – this indicates there is a blockage underground
- Slow flow of water in a sink or bath – can mean the pipe is about to become blocked
- No-one wants an overflowing toilet or manhole so its best to call Alpha Rod as soon as you get any of these indicators of a blockage
Whose responsibility are the drains?
Responsibility for maintenance and repair of private sewers has changed since October 2011.
After October 2011 the Government transferred some private sewers into the ownership of the statutory water and sewerage companies. It means that homeowners are no longer responsible for:
- Private sewers that they share with another property.
- The section of their property's drain that lies outside the property boundary.
However the householder still retains the ownership of and responsibility for the drain serving the property and located within the property boundary. Not many homeowners know where a blockage actually is in the pipework but rest assured that if your blockage is the responsibility of the water authorities we will help you confirm this and then advise you of the facts which will help the water authorities finish the job without any ultimate cost to yourselves.
