Postby nailer » Thu Dec 04, 2008 7:06 pm

hi ther hello firstly,im in the trouble,pardon the pun my house has internal downpipe for the foul,im an end house and twice in the last three weeks my kitchen has filled with the whole blocks detrius and piddle,obviuosly this sounds like a blockage and its been rodded twice but he problem is its coming up directly underneath my downpipe,suggesting to me that my pipe joint which obviously runs into next doors and so on is leaking thus filling my kitchen,with my house being the end one surely it wouldnt back up unless the blockage was past my downpipe,they say they are going to camera on monday,would there be gasses escapin into my kitchen and do i have rights as this has been reported three times and nothing has been done,i have a 5yr old son in the house and they are doing nothing at all just fobbing me off :x

Hi Nailer,

I don't know if this is advice but here goes:-

Is your house private or rented?
Get all your neighbours onside.- spread any costs
Environmental health dept - give 'em a ring!! - may help

You need to get to the bottom of this.(No pun intended)
