    Nathan came, he was polite and a nice person who wanted to help and ensure the issue was solved. He rod cleared the blockage , inspected drain pits to check clear and inspected via a camera 18 meters of drains. When he left he was satisfied the problem was solved. Fantastic professional person. If we have a problem in the future we will call them. Ian Dorking

  • Unblocking drain

    10Verified Review

    Tony and Skye arrived within 2 hours to unblock a drain on a Sunday on the hottest day of the year so far - mid 70°F. We couldnt use the basins, sinks or loos, so we were very pleased to see them. They quickly identified the problem (tree roots), unblocked the drain and then gave us the option to have the tree roots removed at a further cost there and then or book another date. We chose to go ahead straight away and they were highly efficient, polite and friendly.

    I cant rate highly enough the service I received today. The operative Dan H arrived on time. He carried out the work in an efficient no fuss manner and was a pleasure to deal with. Dan could not have been more helpful and polite. My whole experience with this company from booking to completion and payment has been nothing but positive. Highly recommended. Thank you.

  • Blocked drains

    10Verified Review

    Drain blockage and overflow of liquid with no previous warning.. Safety hazard. Rang company A who proceeded to ask to to me pay in advance. Natwest flagged this up as a possible scam before I paid.. Rang Drain detectives late saturday 23rd and spoke to a very polite lady who took details. Had a call back the same day advising that they would attend on Tuesday morning. Provided clear and concise information of payment details and rates as well the possibilities of extended work. Attended on Tuesday 26th and promptly cleared blockage. Payments as per agreed rates. Very easy to deal with.
