    Have used First Choice for a number of years now for emptying Septic tank and any drain blockage. So easy to deal with. Phone them and they are there there at the first opportunity. Guys are really polite and friendly and have never had any problems. Would highly recommend

  • Installation of French drain

    10Verified Review

    The company is well-organised and dealt quickly and thoughtfully with our request, planning and finances. The two men who carried out the job explained carefully what they would do to install a French drain by the side of our house. They worked hard and efficiently and adapted the plan to accommodate the problems that arose. They completed the job in two days and they and the Excavations Manager were very pleasant and helpful throughout.

  • Clearing a blocked pipe from the toilet and clearing up afterwards.

    9Verified Review

    The guys turned up within the time agreed, were pleasant and helpful. They cleared the blockage from the toilet and the downpipe and cleared up afterwards. They were helpful discussing the possible causes of the blockage so I could get the problem sorted properly.
