All the toilets, sinks, baths and showers from the entire apartment is emptied into the same waste pipe where it flows into the sewers, During Monsoon the water level in these ducts increase and unfortunately most drainage pipeline ducts are missing the provision for Overflow drainage facility resulting the wastewater unable to flow away making the entire area unhygienic.

Small objects, random debris, grease and other stuff can slowly and gradually accumulate inside the pipes, obstructing the flow of water. If blocked drains are not cleaned and dealt immediately, the stagnant water can lead to a number of complications that will affect you and your property.
