Re: Plumber/drainage specialist - help please

It is always best if you can to oversee what drainage is being put in during the build.. But of course, if you buy a ready-built property you cant do that.

We have 4" pipework, flush down toilet paper as you would in any N European country and have never had a log jam!
We are exactly the same. But we don't have any 90 degree bends in the manholes.. Any smells we have were usually from drying out traps in an unused bathroom
