It pays to ensure the unseen underground assets of your property are as well-maintained as the main buildings, gardens and boundaries. Drain problems are unpleasant at best, destructive to health and property at worst.
Faulty or blocked drains can cause flooding, health hazards from overflowing sewage and damage to property.
At MTS we offer all the expertise, services and equipment you need to check the condition of drains and sewers. We pinpoint any blockages, damage or other faults and advise on the best way to rectify any problems.
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.
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.
The MTS blocked drain 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 crews 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 re-lining does not involve any digging and returns a drain to better-than-new condition at a fraction of the cost of replacement.
