Blocked Drains

Have you got a blocked drain? MTS clears all types of blocked drains quickly and at competitive rates.

What are the signs of a blocked drain?

  • Smell – the most obvious and unpleasant indicator of a problem.
  • Slow draining – sinks take longer than usual to drain and the water in toilets rises after flushing.

Who is responsible for sorting out a blocked drain?

Householders are responsible for drains within their property boundary, but not for private sewers shared with another property owner or for the section of drain which lies outside their property boundary.

What to do if you have a blocked drain:

  • If you live in rented accommodation call your landlord or housing association.
  • If you are not sure about who is responsible for the problem drain, call your local water company; they will be able to offer free advice.
  • If you know the drainage issues are your responsibility, call the MTS 24 hour service on 01634 250326 for a rapid response. We aim to respond to emergency calls within 4 hours.

Act quickly:

  • Sewage can overflow from blocked drains causing health hazards;
  • There may be damage to the drain which could cause more blockages and further damage to the property if left unrepaired.
