Drain Cleaning/Unblocking in CB3
Posted 22 September 2014
Job Description:
Rainwater downpipe to soakaway blocked solid by plant roots. Have removed and cleared it, but undergound continuation pipe to soakaway also blocked by roots, to what distance I don't know, but suspect all the way. Have lifted 3 patio slabs (sufficient) and excavated far enough beyond edge of patio to trace pipe to distance of about 3m from house, so far about 30cm below surface. Soakaway apparently under shrub border somewhere; no cover that I can see, and am too tired/old to excavate further. Rang previous owner for info; he said that soakaway was installed along with house extension before minimum 5m distance from house was made mandatory, but that he didn't know how far from the house it actually was, nor exactly where. Have kept patio base material and additional topsoil for backfilling later.
