  • Yes, you are correct...this was cleaned just before Christmas and still has remained full and overflowing and because of this is a sheet of ice this morning due to a drop in temperature. This drain used to work fine so please enlighten me how it has now turned into a slow drainer? Rain/water isn't a new concept and this drain is not working, it never goes down and has been a 'slow drainer (no drainer) for around 2 months now.

  • Drain still blocked and overflowing. A crew has been out to clear the gully several times and the problem still persists which would suggest it needs further investigation and it is not simply blocked.
