  • Investigating 2 blocked rainwater drains

    10Verified Review

    Drain Detectives responded quickly to our request for a quote, giving a clear explanation of their rates and what was covered. Barry arrived within the time agreed, explained what he was going to do, set everything up and cleared the blockage in the first drain. Investigation showed that further work would be required to resolve the issue with the second drain, for which a quote would be provided. Overall very satisfied with the service provided.

  • Jet flushing a main drain after a blocked toilet

    10Verified Review

    I called Drain Detectives yesterday evening who promptly booked me in for first thing this morning ( I had the choice of emergency call out for yesterday as well ) Barry attended today and was my hero after a very stressful 24 hours and no working toilet ! He showed me the blockage on camera ( tissue paper) and promptly jet flushed the main drain and cleared the blockage. He was fast, efficient, knowledgeable and very courteous! I would highly recommend Drain Detectives and especially Barry , thank you so much

  • Toilet blockage

    10Verified Review

    My plumber ended up not turning up. I called Drain Detectives and within two hours, I had someone coming to my place to fix my blocked toilet. I am very impressed by the service. They had to bring in equipment and a colleague had to come and help. All of that was solved within an hour. They left my toilet clean.

  • Clearing blockage in upstairs toilet

    9.5Verified Review

    Nathan was prompt and worked hard clearing the initial blockage from the upstairs loo using a plunger. He then ensured the blockage passed all the way to the street drain which involved using the jet. Very happy with clearing the blockage!!! Note to self next time, clear the bathroom before work starts as it was a very messy job.

  • Clearing blocked sewer pipe

    10Verified Review

    Blocked sewer which the engineer cleared very efficiently. He also needed to retrieve some broken drain rods (my fault) which he did. Very pleased with service and also the engineer himself, who was very polite and helpful. Based upon experience, I would recommend 100%.
