    Drain outside blocked

    Drain outside blocked 11th Jun 06 at 2:36 AM
    Hi all,
    We have a strange drain for our kitchen, basically the pipe from the kitchen sink ends up outside in a hole with a only a grate and wood board protecting it. The house is quite old. We call it the "hole".

    Now the "hole" is now blocked. I am surprised this did not block earlier, you can find all sort of things in the "hole" snails, leaves, kitchen waste etc. I am not sure what kind of people I should call to have this fixed (plumber or drain unblocking company such as dynorod) , or if it's a matter for the water provider?

    Am I better off insuring myself against this somehow, and if yes has anyone got any suggestion?
