Unseen and often unloved, the underground assets of your property should be as well-maintained as the buildings, gardens and boundaries.
Faulty or blocked drains can create health hazards from overflowing sewage and cause serious damage to your property, both indoors and out.
We can thoroughly check the condition of your drains and sewers and give our expert advice on any repairs or cleaning work that may be necessary. We use CCTV survey cameras to pinpoint blockages, damage, root incursion or other faults.
The most obvious sign of a drain problem is an unpleasant smell, another giveaway is when sinks or baths take longer than usual to drain. The water in toilets rises after flushing when there is a blockage.
The MTS blocked drains service is available 24 hours, seven days a week and we aim to respond to emergency calls within four hours. You should always act quickly when you discover a drain problem to avoid overflow of sewage.
To help avoid blockages, only ever flush pee, poo and paper down the toilet. That means no sanitary items, wet wipes, food waste, fat, grease or anything else. Fat, oils and grease can create particularly nasty problems over time.
Our CCTV survey teams can access even the most awkwardly positioned manholes to get a 360 degree picture of what is going on underground. Once we’ve identified the problem we’ll advise you whether jet cleaning can remove the problem or if a repair is necessary.
We offer a range of cost effective repair options including pipe re-lining. Pipe relining does not involve any digging and returns a drain to better-than-new condition at a fraction of the cost of replacement.
As a householder, you’re responsible for drains within your property boundary, but not for private sewers shared with another property owner or for the section of drain which lies outside of your property boundary.
If you live in rented accommodation and you have an issue with your drains, you should call your landlord, letting agent or housing association in the first instance.
If you’re unsure who is responsible for a problem drain, call your local water company who will be able to offer free advice.
