Are you Experiencing Sewer Problems?

At BDS Drainage, as sewer inspection specialists, we take on various areas of ‘foul water’ work, including dealing with private sewers, drain repairs and septic tank services. Sewers take sewage from toilet systems, bathrooms and kitchens. BDS has a full range of drain unblocking services including unblocking sewers.

It is hard for individuals to work out who to call in terms of sewer problems, as the pipework is underground. It can be hard to pinpoint who owns what and who holds the responsibility. Similar to drains, sewers also become blocked from time to time, and it can be a real health risk if the sewage overflows.

If you are to call out BDS engineers for sewer cleaning or other services, we will be able to tell you whether the affected pipe is yours. If it belongs to you, the BDS Drainage engineers can help.
