    Drain smell inside house - tracing source

    Update, Further CCTV work has suggested that there is a piece of old plumbing (earthenware pipe) that had a rodding eye or branch in it, and this was probably not capped off. We have had that relined, (no mean feat, I gather) and since then, no bad smell in the house at all. I don't want to...

    patio drain

    We did the same 80m^2 in total. Used ACO drains that fed into two bloody big soakaways under the patio - a great way to get rid of a lot of the old brickwork etc. Has worked brilliantly. We're on sandstone, and hit the bedrock when digging, so drainage will always be good.
