What should I do if I think I have a blocked sewer/drain?

Help and advice if you think you have a blockage

Blocked sinks and toilets are really unpleasant. They are usually caused by blocked sewers in or near your home. 

You'll need to check who's responsible for what to understand who'll need to be contacted.

There are two types of sewers - private and public.

Private sewers belong to you, the customer. You'll need to call a plumber to help you with this - search our approved plumbers.

Public sewers belong to us here at Severn Trent, just call us on 0800 783 4444 to let us know. This line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

There are also public highway drains and gulleys,  you'll need to contact your local authority to help with this.
