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 which can allow vermin 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 be using. We will 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?

A few more excellent reviews to reassure you...
Blocked kitchen sink drain.
"Tony Parker arrived prompt and with a smile. Nine years of oily rubbish clogging-up the under-floor drainage pipes but he rose to (and enjoyed) the challenge ! Was not simple with poor installation 9 years ago to blame but he did it, all cleansed and good for another 9 years ! Some remedial work was not successful bit he wouldn't give up. All done within an hour. Brought all the power-kit and all the remedies needed ! Gave excellent advice as to preventing it again. Complete professional, Huge THANK YOU ! I only called this morning - Clean pipes this afternoon !"
Unblocking The Drains
"I met Tony Hebditch today and he did an amazing job clearing the drains. They were completely blocked. He was very friendly and I would use Happy Drains Ltd again and recommend others to use them."
"Brilliant work from Mark at Happy Drains! Arrived on time, very nice bloke, dealt brilliantly with a very difficult blocked drain working around access problems and trying all options. He was just not going to let the drain win! Very happy with the outcome completely sorted. Thanks Mark."
"Great job man on site communicated with me explaining what had caused problem"
Clear Garage Drain
"Cleared build up of silt as much as possible without further work"
"I called in the morning and they send someone two hours later. He was friendly and polite and sorted on the problem quickly keeping me updated all the way through and giving us some good advice afterwards. I was charged the price quoted and am very happy."
Blocked toilet and restricted shower drain
"We called because of toilet blockage problem. We were given a quote on call. Upon arrival the engineer found out that the blockage was because of a switch being off. He looked around the room to find it. Once switched on, the toilet worked again. It was not due to blockage which we has thought. After that we requested him if he could help us with slow draining of the shower. He looked at the around and uncloged the draign in a short time. He was very polite and very willing to help. He also suggested us on what to do next time if we find the same problem. Responsive and punctual."
Inspect and fix blocked drain at rear of house
"Prompt, professional and carried out the work cleanly and effectively. For a fast solution to a blocked drain these guys are absolutely perfect. Highly recommended."
Cleaned out a slow flowing drain including power flush
"Turned up the very same day exactly when they said they would, cleaned the drain out quickly, removed the blockage and were done in half an hour. Pretty much exactly what you want to have happen when you've got a blocked drain!"
Cleared a blocked outside drain
"The operative was efficient and courteous . He arrived exactly ontime and was finished in an hour. Excellent work and very happy to recommend this company."
"Very friendly gentleman called Tony did an excellent job. Once water started freely draining we thought job done and another trader could have left. But Happy Drains did another half hours work bringing out chunks of solidified fat/limescale, all in the originally extremely competitive quote. We are very happy with the service and would highly recommend them."
Drain cleared and my drain brush recovered
"Work completed the same afternoon after I called in the morning detailing the problem. Everything was fine. They even sent a fellow golfer! The only (small) negative was that the details I gave in my call that morning hadn't been passed on to Tony, when he arrived to do the work - I had been trying to clear the drain myself when the brush head came off my drain cleaning kit and got stuck down the drain, making matters worse. Tony was able to recover it."

"Tony did a fantastic job and was extremely friendly. Not only did he unblock the wastewater drain he cleaned the other drains as well and unbeknownst to us our downstairs toilet drain was almost blocked as well so he saved us on a future problem as well. He also gave some great advice on how to care for the drain and ensure we don't have any damp issues in the future from the way the runoff works. I was also very impressed by how quickly Happ Drains got to us and resolved out issue following correct social distancing processes and could not recommend them more."
