Hi, I'm Alan Paul who owns DrainLocal London Ltd. I work alone/ for myself so you can be assured that it will be me who answers your call and who attends your property to carry out the job. I am one of those people who loves their job and I think that shows most when I'm on one of those jobs where all avenues have been exhausted and the drain just won’t budge! I like to think that I can clear any blockage and that mentality usually sees me right.

I moved from Greenwich, London to Epping, Essex in February 2016 and now cover approximately 15-20 radius of my new home in Epping. I do however have a large customer base in and around South-East London and tend to be in the area most days so please do give me a call if you require my services south of the river.    

My main bulk of work is drain unblocking and drain surveying. Sink and shower unblocking is my most skilled job due to my plumbing background i.e. if my unblocking machines cannot get a sink or shower pipe clear then I have the knowledge (and usually parts on the van) to cut into pipes further down the line to access and clear the blockage there. I also have my drills and saws on the van for those tricky access areas such as under floorboards or behind plasterboard walls. The remaining drainage work that I carry out are repairs such as drain re-lining and underground pipe replacement - Please see my website for more details. I am a qualified plumber and undertake all aspects of domestic plumbing jobs except boiler repairs/ install.

All my prices are fixed and transparent. A full price list can be found on the website. If you feel that your job doesn't fit into one of the fixed price categories, then please do give me a call to discuss or, email pictures over for me to have a look or, request a free on site quotation where I will attend your property and assess the job prior to quoting.

In regards to my drain unblocking rates, if I cannot get your drain cleared then I do not charge a penny. Instead, I leave a free quotation which will explain the next steps needed. 9 times out of 10 I will have your issue resolved within the price quoted however, every now and then a bigger problem will arise such as a collapsed pipe and our original price for jetting is unsuitable.     

My van is fully fitted out with all the necessary equipment to deal with any blockage that you may have. To conclude, my services are:

  • Blocked Drains & Drain Unblocking
  • CCTV Surveys
  • Blocked Sinks
  • Blocked Showers & Baths
  • Blocked Toilets
  • Drain Re-lining
  • Patch Repair for Pipes
  • Dig Ups- Repair & Replacement
  • Pipe De-scaling
  • Root Removal
