Preventing Rats Entering Drains

Rats in your drains is something that most of us would rather not think about. Fortunately most of us never have to. But when a problem arises it can be very distressing and rats can quickly move into your wall cavities and your attic.

There are two types of waste water from your home –

FOUL WATER – (from toilets, showers and kitchen sinks etc.) and
SURFACE WATER (from gutters and driveways etc)

Stopping Rats from Getting in Drains

Where possible, they should flow into different drains, but Thames Water estimates, that because of plumbing errors, they are mixed in as many as one in three homes.

This significantly increases the risk of rats entering your home from the sewers. Understanding how drains work is critical to offering the right solution. In older properties, drains can be complicated and it is necessary to map them out correctly.
