The blockage of sewer pipe or manhole resulting in effluent entering your home or premises requires immediate attention. Often, the emergency contractor will provide a quote for you to send to your insurers confirming the cost and possible damage.

You may also be part of a shared drainage run, where multiple properties are all insured separately. We have schemes with approved drainage contractors to manage the claims on their behalf, ensuring the following:
- The correct presentation of the drainage claim to the insurance company
