Who is responsible for an external drain blockage London?

In general, the homeowner is responsible for unblocking any drains within your property boundary such as, beneath your house, garden, and driveway. These are classed as private drains. Any drains which do not share pipes with your neighbours are your responsibility to unblock.

Drains that are located external to your property are called 'lateral drains'. Lateral drains are the pipes that carry wastewater away from your home and into a sewer. These are connected to your private drains, but they are not considered your responsibility. Lateral drains are publicly owned. If you'd like to speak to a drainage engineer for some free advice, we'd be happy to help.

How To Diagnose A Blocked Drain In London

It's not always easy to diagnose a blocked drain. If you have a suspicion you may have blockage in your London home's drains system, but you're not 100% sure. Here’s 4 easy signs to look out for.

How to tell that your drain is blocked:

  1. Unpleasant Odours
    – Drain blockages tend to produce foul smelling odours. Often due to food waste, debris slowly decomposes which creates a bad smelling drain.
  2. Slow Drainage
    – If you have a blocked pipe, water will drain slowly. The water has to flow around the blockage, so it will be considerably slower.
  3. Raised Water Levels
    – One of the easiest ways to detect a clogged drain is if you notice any rises in water levels, for example when you flush your toilet.
  4. Gurgling Sounds 
    – If any strange gurgling sounds are heard from drains and plug holes, this could be a sign of a blockage. The gurgling sound indicates that there is trapped air in the drain, and is escaping when you run water.

If you need professional help, urgently. Please call Quick Clear Drainage in London on 0203 633 3897.

How To Tell If You Have A Blocked Drain In London

Are you wondering whether you have a blocked drain in London? Here’s how to tell. 

You Can Smell Foul Odors

Before the advent of modern sanitation, cities smelled. Waste would pour out onto the streets where it would eventually make its way to the river or sea. With the invention of modern plumbing, that mostly came to an end. However, it can soon make a return when drains become blocked. If you notice a frightful smell emanating from your drains, it indicates that waste is unable to join the main sewer system. 

You Can Hear Strange Gurgling Sounds

If your plumbing fixtures and fittings are making a little more noise than usual, it could be an indication of a blockage. When water and waste can’t drain properly, it leads to trapped air which causes your drains and pipes to make gurgling noises. 

Your Toilets And Sinks Won’t Drain At all

Blocked drains slow the speed with which toilets, baths and sinks can drain or prevent drainage altogether.
