Blocked drain or sewers
Your drain or sewer
You will see if your drain or sewer is blocked if you flush the toilet and the waste does not go away. You may also see gullies outside your property overflowing, notice a smell around drains and inspection chambers or see that an inspection chamber on your property is full of water.
If none of your neighbours are affected, then your drain is probably blocked. If your neighbours are also affected there is probably a problem with the sewer.
