  • Routing drainage in the absence of a soak away

    10Verified Review

    Called DDS Ltd and was provided with helpful advise that didn’t require me to spend hundreds of pounds unnecessarily nor did it require any action on the part of DDS. An honest and extremely helpful tradesman from my experience.

  • Root removal

    10Verified Review

    Excellent work by Dale finding and removing a root blockage from a storm pipe. Prompt, friendly and professional service, cleaned up afterwards, and gave good advice to avoid future problems. It’s the second time we have called on DDS and will be going to them again if needed in future.

  • Blocked kitchen drain

    10Verified Review

    Dan came out to help us with a blocked kitchen drain which we were unable to reach properly to unblock. He cleared the blockage easily, but then examined the drain thoroughly to work out why we couldn't reach it, discovered the actual problem and explained what we could do to overcome it in the future. Excellent service and we thoroughly recommend him.

  • CCTV check of foul water drains.

    10Verified Review

    We wanted to check the underground pipes were OK before we made any repairs to some damaged paving. I chose Detection because I specifically wanted to use a local company. Dale lives in East Grinstead and was very helpful during our first call. He offered to come round on Monday (today) to carry out the checks. He phoned ahead to let me know his arrival time and from there he was very prompt and efficient. The CCTV inspection showed the pipes were in good order, as we'd hoped. I would happily call Dale again for any other drainage work that we might need in future.
