    Sewer drainage under garden advice 30th Sep 17 at 10:42 PM

    Were building a new bathroom upstairs at the side of the house and the new toilet there has to drain into the existing sewage mains pipe under our garden.

    Our old bathroom downstairs at the back drains into sewage mains pipe underneath our back garden.

    I believe we dont have a manhole. Is it best to have one?

    Instead of digging up the whole back garden and possibly front garden to find this pipe is there a way to obtain information or a map that shows where the sewage pipe is?

    Consent to connect is for a new property. This doesn't particularly sound like something Severn Trent need to be involved with.

    You are clearly out of your depth here and need some professional advice to get this right. We cannot do it from here.
