Sorry to hear you were flooded.I would try your home insurance provider, depends on what cover you have and they should be able to advise you who to contact.

Not necessarily true.

Wasn't in my case anyway. United Utilities cleaned my house and fitted a non-return flap on my property to prevent this - it did happen a few times though.

Precisely that, except in our case it backed up and came out the toilet... so even more of a problem as it was from the waste drains. None return flap stopped it happening and pushed the problem to our neighbour to sort... ha.

Then they put bigger sewers in and problem solved.

My hubs is 'in the business' and he said it's hard to say without seeing it, if it was your drain in your garden then it's probably your responsibility. However, if the same thing happened to all your neighbours too then it's likely to be a mains problem. If you have insurance it's probably best to ring them.

The law on drains changed last year UU are now responsible for some pipework inside boundry lines.
We have just finished a job in Bebington and UU flushed all drains Foc a non return has also been fitted.
