Main sewers are publicly owned and maintained by your water company and will be kept in good working order by professionals who can effectively carry out their upkeep. For homes situated in remote areas, cesspools, drainage fields and septic tanks are available to help dispose of sewage safely.
If you require your property to be connected to the mains sewer, a sewerage infrastructure charge is payable. If the process of connecting your sewer pipe to the mains involves excavations of public footpaths or grass verges, you will need to obtain consent from the Highway Authority (such as your local or County Council).
To connect to the mains sewerage system, your property must be located within a viable distance from your property and work for you as a cost-effective solution. Our drainage experts can analyse your property, the gradient and whether excavation is required.
Laying the Pipes
Once your property is signed off by our experts as ready to connect to the main sewer system, we will lay the pipes to connect your sewer system to the main sewer and ensure all connections are watertight. If the gradient of your property does not allow the water to flow freely, we will install a pump to flush waste from your property.
