Drain smell in utility sink.

“They were punctual, and efficient. The problem was communicated and I was shown the area of blockage. I called the previous day, so service was very quick. Good service, honest conversation that this may not fully elevate the odour. So far, so good.”

Solved Blocked Drains.

“Fantastic company. I called the main office having seen the reviews online. Within two hours, they had arrived and cleared a very blocked drain. We have recently moved and so we did not know the location of all the manholes, however the gentleman searched and uncovered the manholes under a gravel drive. Personable, persistent and very professional. Would definitely recommend.”

If you need the information fast we can share what we find via a live feed during the CCTV survey works.

A recent study by insurers suggested “20 to 30% of subsidence claims in London are directly linked and attributed to defective and leaking drainage and a consequence of which has eroded the soil below the foundations causing movement.”

The technical CCTV written reports that we provide are to WRc standards and will detail for your consideration what is needed to bring the drain up to standard and what you are are responsible for by precisely locating any problems.

Rats, mice, rodent and vermin drain problems

Rats will use drains just like ‘Londoners use the Tube’ simply to travel from A to B to feed and nest and they love damaged or redundant drainage systems to enter properties.

If you have a rodent/vermin infestation that your rodent/vermin contractor cannot control, this may be because of a drainage issue.  We will find the defects and access points the rat may use using a CCTV drain inspection and offer you an appropriate solution be it drain repair or the installation of a WRc tested and certified Anti Vermin / Non-Return Valve.

What do our Anti Vermin/Non-Return Drain Valves do?

  • Stops rats and other vermin from entering homes. In effect by fitting a stainless-steel flap, that acts as a one way swinging door allowing waste out but nothing back in.
  • The rubber seal prevents noxious fumes and smells from entering properties.
  • The flap has an inbuilt stainless steel plate to stop rodents biting through, providing efficient pest control.
  • The valve is completely re-usable during any drain cleaning and drain maintenance purposes fully removal and re-usable.
  • Stops backflow of effluent from a blocked main sewer flooding into your property back through the drainage system.
  • The clever design means the flow of waste is increased when passing through the valve; reducing blockages.

Building an extension?

If you are doing building work over the top of or within 3 metres of a ‘Thames Water’ public sewer or drain you must ensure that no damage or restrictions are made to the ‘Thames Water’ drainage assets.

So, if Thames Water have asked you for a ‘build over’ survey because you are ‘Building over or close to a public sewer’ our CCTV survey will provide all the answers you need.

We have had both a drain clearance in one property and a CCTV examination in another.

“Exemplary customer service. Always with a smile; nothing too much trouble. Times to suit. Arrived on time. Easy pay option. Good follow up and happy top recommend. Many thanks indeed for such a great experience!”

Unblocked drains.

“I was called in the morning to confirm I’d be in the afternoon. The two men arrived 5 minutes early. They completed the job within 45 minutes. They were polite, tidied up after them, explained what they’d done and what I needed to look out for and were gone! Outstanding service.”

UNBLOCKED EXTERIOR DRAINS.

“Your guys worked hard finding hidden man holes and tracked problem from back of house to front and under garden wall, excellent work .”

The outside drainage gully carrying waste water was blocked. The drain was unblocked and flushed through.

“The designated operative arrived on time accompanied by his father and his son which is always a good sign! The grandfather also spotted my beast of a motorcycle in the garage which is an even better sign. Cracking job all round. They didn’t even snigger when the cause of the blockage was discovered i.E. A ruddy house brick that I had obviously knocked down the gully in error!”

Unblocked drain.

“Problem found quickly and blockage removed. Good advice given re type of replacement drain cover needed and were to get one.”
