1. Inspection Chamber
Every property needs to be connected to the drainage system. An inspection chamber is a manhole outside your property which allows the council to inspect the drains without requiring access to your home. The inspection chamber will be approximate 350mm wide, but can be 450mm wide at the bottom. The inspection chamber can be up to 3m but the majority of inspection chambers are easily accessible and within an arms length (12-18 inches below ground level). A manhole cover will be in place which you will need to remove to access the drain pipe.
