Burst Water Mains in Lewes

On occasion, there may be a problem with your plumbing or drainage that’s actually being caused by a burst water main somewhere around your property. When this is the case, you will not need to get in touch with a professional plumber because public water mains are not found within the boundary of private residences and businesses. This means they are not your responsibility to get fixed.

Instead, you will need to get in touch with your local water authority and report the problem. They will send their own professional team to take a look at the issue and carry out repairs where necessary. In Lewes, your local water company is Southern Water.

What’s the difference between plumbing and drainage in a house?

It’s common for people to confuse the terms plumbing and drainage, as both deal with pipes and the flow of water running through a property. However, there is actually a difference between the two; plumbing focuses on the water that is coming into a property, while drainage focuses on the water that is leaving that property. By remembering that drainage is the water that “drains away”, you are less likely to confuse the terms.

To give an example of how this would work, if the tap in your kitchen sink won’t turn on, you’ve got a plumbing issue. If the water won’t drain away, you have a drainage issue.

How can I tell if I’ve got a blocked drain somewhere on my property?

There are a few signs you can watch out for if you suspect that a drain might be blocked somewhere inside or around your property. These might not be pleasant signs, but they are easily noticeable, which means you’ll be able to call a professional to get it sorted out more quickly. 

For instance, you might find that there are bad smells coming from your drains (especially kitchen drains, which may get clogged up with food that will start to rot). You’re also likely to find that water will drain away more slowly, or even start to back up. There might also be raised water levels in your toilet if this is where the blockage is located.

Another sign you should also listen out for is strange noises coming from your pipes. These might also indicate a blockage, as air could be trapped in the pipes and is escaping when the water is turned on.
