Further information has come to light with regard to the
drain problem, notably:
original report from the drain specialist was handed
over to the committee and as far as can be determined is
currently in the hands of the previous managing agent
itself appears to have found that when the properties
were built the 'fall' of the pipes was not sufficient to
accommodate the number of properties on the estate and
advice was given that the problem would persist unless
something was done about it.
drains themselves were apparently laid under the
properties then there was and is no way to rectify the
website does not have any concrete evidence to back up
the above statements as the information has come from
one of the residents concerned and their family, however
it is in the process of attempting to obtain
verification from a number of sources, should anything
further come to light it will be placed here.
problem was identified some years ago when one of the
resident's bathroom flooded with waste, at the time a member
of the residents family called in a drain specialist who
investigated to find out why it had happened as drains were
getting blocked on a regular basis.
Read more here from the
drain specialist uncovered is rather disturbing,
aparently the 'fall' of the waste pipes was insufficient
to take away the waste generated by the properties on
the estate. At the time they produced a full
report and presented it to the committee who in turn
were advised that unless something was done about it -
the problem would continue.
whatever reason nothing was done and since then drains
are regularly getting blocked.
being noted here because the residents are forever being
blamed for blockages and advised against 'putting
anything down the toilets other than toilet paper' (once
again noted in the last meeting held on 10/4/18), also
noted was that 'more money has been wasted, yet again,
on clearing the drains due to wetwipes.'
