    • Collapsed drain which was repaired

      10Verified Review

      CCTV showed that our drain pipe had collapsed, soakaway was old and unfortunately no longer serviceable, so they installed new gully and connecting pipework etc., With recent rain it's been a comfort to know the water is going down the drain and not coming back up as it once was! Site as one would expect was left clean, no signs of work having been done and the two gentleman who carried out this work, they were very helpful, no matter how many times I annoyed them with a "why" question.

    • Blocked / Backed up drain

      9.75Verified Review

      I honestly cannot recommend these guys enough. Called them on a bank holiday and Matt attended our house the following day. Work was fully explained before/during and afterwards and a quick and professional job was done. Matt didn't leave until we were both satisfied the drain was unblocked and I was charged exactly what I was quoted on the call. 100% will use again should I ever need anything like this doing in future. Thanks Matt and thanks Drain People - a credit to the local area.

    • Locate drain problem and clear accumulated deposits


      Matt: top bloke. Very quickly got his CCTV down the drain and identified the issue. Then spent a fair time carefully flushing out deposits. He seems to take pride in doing a good job. Definitely recommended.
