Rats, mice, rodent and vermin drain problems

Rats will use drains just like ‘Londoners use the Tube’ simply to travel from A to B to feed and nest and they love damaged or redundant drainage systems which can allow vermin to enter properties.

If you have a rodent/vermin infestation that your rodent/vermin contractor cannot control, this may be because of a drainage issue.  We will find the defects and access points the rat may be using.   We will offer you an appropriate solution be it drain repair or the installation of a WRc tested and certified ‘Anti Vermin / Non-Return Valve’.

What do our Anti Vermin/Non-Return Drain Valves do?

  • Stops rats and other vermin from entering homes. In effect by fitting a stainless-steel flap, that acts as a one way swinging door allowing waste out but nothing back in.
  • The rubber seal prevents noxious fumes and smells from entering properties.
  • The flap has an inbuilt stainless steel plate to stop rodents biting through, providing efficient pest control.
  • The valve is completely re-usable during any drain cleaning and drain maintenance purposes fully removal and re-usable.
  • Stops backflow of effluent from a blocked main sewer flooding into your property back through the drainage system.
  • The clever design means the flow of waste is increased when passing through the valve; reducing blockages.

Building an extension?

Pre purchase cctv inspection.

“The Happy Drains chaps were prompt and polite. They immediately signposted that the lengths of the drains may mean costing based on 30-60m vs the 30m quoted. The quotation had referenced this possibility and the HD guys ensured I had spoken with their office for an updated quote and was happy to proceed. They were thorough, explained what they were doing and considered issues I raised from our building inspection. They turned the report around quickly, which was very helpful. No hesitation in using them for the repair work required.”
