“Mark was really friendly and did a great job, we live down an awkward lane which he could have been difficult about but he was brilliant. I was called and given notice of when he would arrive, and as the job was urgent I was seen the same day. I had called a couple of other local drain companies and had been quoted over double what I paid Happy Drains. Would highly recommend if you are in need of a speedy solution!”

If you need the information fast we can share what we find via a live feed during the CCTV survey works.

A recent study by insurers suggested “20 to 30% of subsidence claims in London are directly linked and attributed to defective and leaking drainage and a consequence of which has eroded the soil below the foundations causing movement.”

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?
– need a CCTV Drain Survey?

If you are doing building work over the top of or within 3 metres of a ‘Thames Water’ public sewer or drain you must ensure that no damage or restrictions are made to the ‘Thames Water’ drainage assets.

So, if Thames Water have asked you for a ‘build over’ survey because you are ‘building over or close to a public sewer’ our CCTV survey will provide all the answers and information you need.
