Unblocking the kitchen drain
"I was very grateful by the work the person who came to my house did. We had a very stubborn blockage that had not been resolved in over a year by other companies previously because apparently it was more complicated than a physical block. I was impressed by his ability and willingness to investigate, understand and eventually resolve our blockage."
"I am very satisfied with the work Happy Drains did to unblock the drain connected to the washing machine waste water. The work was done in a quick and efficient manner with the drain now unblocked. I am highly recommending the service of the company and wouldn't hesitate to use them again if I have a problem."

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.

Clearing drain blockage across three properties and back up of toilet flush
"The young man sent to us was on time, polite and efficient. He went the extra mile to find out what the problem was, discovering that the blockage was between our and our neighbours' properties. He was excellent. The appointment was also organised at short notice. Despite the fact that the job was more complicated than anticipated there was no increase in the price we were quoted. Overall an extremely positive experience and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company."

Drain blockage clearance
"Tony was on site within 90 mins of my call. The staff on my call were very professional and helpful. Given the current pandemic Tony kept his distance, was friendly, helpful, explained the problem and speedily resolved the issue. I could not be more delighted and reassured at his work."
"Gordon and his colleague arrived well within the time slot I was given by his office. The blockage in my drain was cleared in 45 minutes. The system was well flushed through and the four heavy drain covers were replaced. The office quoted a fixed price for the job, which was the price I was charged plus the vat. Gordon and his colleague gave me some helpful advice if I wanted to replace the drain covers in future. All in all I have had a very satisfying experience dealing with Happy Drains Ltd professional service and will certainly use them again if I should have any further problems."
