What is foul drainage?
Put Simply, Foul Drainage is the pipework system that carries wastewater from a kitchen, bathroom or any other room in which water is flushed out. Any property connected to mains drainage, the foul drainage system will transfer the contents to your local sewage treatment plant. The wastewater is then treated so that it can safely be transferred back into the environment. Maldon Landscaping And Contracts

What is a storm drain?
A storm drain or surface water sewer is a drainage system in which clean stormwater from rainfall has run off roofs, driveways, roads/pavements and anything else above the surface is taken to watercourses such as rivers or seas or other water sources. Maldon Landscaping

Both types of drainage system should always be kept separate from one another, foul drainage systems cannot mix with Storm drainage systems because If any wastewater mixes into a surface water sewer, it can pollute local watercourses. If storm drainage systems were to be connected to foul drainage systems, there is a large possibility that they would flood and may cause damage and backups.
Misconnections of drainage systems usually happen when new work has been carried out for extensions and/or improvements to a property or when a new property has been built. However, it is also possible from the installation of a new appliance. If you're unsure about your properties drainage connections, it is highly suggested that you seek specialist expert advice.
