It seems to be working great. It only cost him 300 euro for the digger hire etc
I might consider it next year. I am broke at the moment.
Perhaps I'm mininterpreting your post and I may stand corrected if so.
Your neighbours bum is 3 foot above your garden.
Is this a relativistic thing - does the garden change levels when he goes upstairs to use the loo or what!?
Seriously though, what is a "H" drain?
Regardless, running groundwater into the public sewers may be against the law.
It isn't exempted development, and it seesm to goe directly against SUDS, which requires local disposal of rainwater with soakaways, etc., never mind groundwater.
Is he trying to bankrupt the local authority with endless litres of groundwater?
Is he even on a separate system - then he's just overload the sewers and cause flooding, or worse, silt them up unless he has a trap fitted to prevent fines being delivered down the pipe.
Does your neighbour have planning permission for this connection?
Perhaps his behind will develop a new proximity condition.
With a boot from the local authority and the District Court.
Thanks for shopping him on a public forum.
