Rat in Sewer Pipes.

I have a property in turkey which in the past months has been attacked by Rats through the plastic sewer pipes......
My sewer is linked to the main sewer on the main road, and itís around 30 Mtrs away from the property.

The rats, i am assuming came via the sewer pipe and chewed through the mains water pipe which was nest to the sewer pipe and flooded 2 of the bathrooms.......What made it worse is that all the pipes in the property are concealed in the wall block work so had t9 break the tiles, and dig the pipes out. It was not cheap repair !......

Has there anyone out there faced with this problem before, and what was done to stop the pests coming into the sewer pipes ?.....

Re: Rat in Sewer Pipes.

Had they chewed through the internal sewer pipe or come in through the toilet ?

Re: Rat in Sewer Pipes.

Cunning buggers , horrible feeling having them in your home.
I had trouble with them and I adopted 2 feral cats, end of problem.
No easy solution I know of sorry.

Re: Rat in Sewer Pipes.

I remember a friend, formerly a member of TLF - Kaplumba - had this problem in Datca a few years ago. After trying various things that didn’t work, she finally located and installed one way flaps to the main outlet pipe where the rats were getting in. They open to release sewage flow, but don’t open inwards - end of problem! No idea where she got them, I think the sitesi gardener suggested them? Next time she’s here I’ll ask her.

Re: Rat in Sewer Pipes.

Yes, we had the same problem on our complex in Akbuk. Several properties had rat infestations and some did considerable damage. The complex fitted one way traps... problem yok !!!

Re: Rat in Sewer Pipes.

Only thing i can suggest is make your own for now make the flap out of flat steal sheet and fix a Plastic hinge onto the sheet and then to the top of the pipe grease it well .

Install a non returnable valve in the pipework just before it enters your property this put a barrier between you and the sewers and will also assist in stopping bad smells

Re: Rat in Sewer Pipes.

Theres only one entrance for a rat to get into a property via pipework & thats the toilet. Properties left for a long period, the water evaporates, the rat gets his entrance. Anyone leaving a property for a long period, put the toilet seat down & put something weighty on top it.
