Good service. Engineers turned up on the day and had to locate the drains before clearing out. They were very professional, helpful and polite. Couldn’t fault them in any way. It was a bit pricey hence the 4 stars but it got the job done and no more smelly bathroom. Thank you.

Very professional and knowledgeable staff arrived and tried their best to fix collapsed pitch fiber pipe. Unfortunately this could not be done so they upgraded the pipes and were quick and professional throughout. Would highly recommend the company for any works that need doing.

Excellent service this week from Paul, in the office, and Dan and Rory in the van.

We had water pouring into our cellar when our rainwater drain failed. Paul offered to get a van to us the same day and Dan and Rory worked well into the evening to re-line 6m of pipework and install a new gully all the same day!

Couldn't fault Dan & Rory. Dan really knew his stuff and was a real perfectionist. Also, a pleasure to have around on a pretty stressful day!

I highly recommend Drain Division if you are ever unlucky enough to be in a similar position!

Following concerns with our drains and soakaways I contacted Drain Division for some advice and a quote for any remedial works.

I provided Paul in the office with the requested pictures of the areas of concern. Paul then described his thoughts in detail, the method they would use to fix the issue and also a detailed quotation - no hard sell, just a clear plan with a clear price.

Chris and Josh were swiftly on-site once I was happy to proceed with the work and set about fixing the issue with utter professionalism.

Chris highlighted some other areas he thought might be an issue and due to his vast experience was correct once viewed on camera. Some very serious issues promptly fixed again with no hard sell at all.

From start to finish, just a great, highly recommended company, Chris even swept and cleaned the area at the end of the job.

I am very pleased with the way that Drain Division dealt with my blocked drain enquiry. They arrived at my mothers house the next day and found it was not a blocked drain but a burst water pipe. As I live 200 miles from my mother they kindly sent me a short video showing me the problem with the water main and advised on what I should do. All this and no charge was made for their site visit or investigation. Terry Allen.

3rd time we use Drain Division and absolute gems! We have moved house several times and have children so blocked drains happen more often than we like. Paul from Drain Division is always prompt to fit us in, even if last minute. We are thankful and very much appreciate their hard work. Great company for emergency drain issues!

Your men turned up on the same day after another company had let me down twice.

They got on with the job in a courteous and tidy way,but more work was needed on the following day, Again another crew arrived on time and did the work courteously and efficiently.

I would recommend this company.

My parents are elderly and cannot praise the workmen enough for their excellent service. Everything was fully explained as work progressed, and what we thought initially to be just a blocked drain turned out to be a much bigger problem. However, the work was completed in one day to my parents complete satisfaction. The men were both hard working and courteous and left the area as tidy as when they arrived. Thank you. I highly recommend this company.

I contacted drains division having had a recurrent problem with drains blockage afterother companies had performed emergency unblocking on several occasions but were unable to suggest a cause or long term solution. After a brief telephone call drains division suggested an assessment visit and they were on site within 3 days . The very courteous expert engineer took a video with fibre optic technology and thenexplained the problem and recommended a a solution to prevent future blocks.As promised I received his full report and the videos on line within a week along with a quote for the recommended work. It took only one phone call from me to ask when the work could go ahead and I was given a booking for 3 days time.

The engineer turned up as expected and completed the work as planned in one day. It was amazing. Instead of having to dig up and replace all the drains they were able to clean and line the drains with a clever new resin sock to allow a smooth flow overcoming the previous problem where connections had slipped and caused blockages. Just amazing and all without having to dig up my block paving.

I needed prompt attention to flooded drains and some repair work and the team were with me quickly, explained everything and got to work. The whole jobs were completed fast and it seems that the problems are all now sort out. Thank you

I was very pleased with the job done by Drain Division. They explained everything to me as they went along, showing me all the problems with the drain. They cleared it all through and put everything back, leaving everything clean. They were courteous and helpful.

When we discovered that we had a blockage in our main drain we called Drain Division and they were most helpful. The team arrived next day and managed to unblock the drain. They sent a camera down and discovered numerous roots breaking into the pipework and advised lining the pipes. Following this work we received a quotation for the complete job and instructed its commencement. lining the drain and replacing a broke portion of pipework was completed in a day and a half. The team were polite and efficient at all times and kept us informed at every stage.We were most impressed with their work and grateful for their advice.

Dramatic waterfall flowing over gutter in recent heavy rain. Called out gutter unblocker who found downpipe elbow blocked by mass of soil, moss and seeds. Unfortunately that didn't solve the problem: a small stone dropped down pipe to check flow splashed into water about 1 metre from ground indicating that drain was blocked. Greatly alarmed, I contacted Drain Division's Bristol team. From beginning to end my experience with Drain Division was a pleasure: the efficiency with which the job was booked for later the same day, the clarity of the pricing, the engineer's alert call 30 mins before arrival just as promised, the team's cheerful, polite and reassuring manner, their competence, their speed at successfully identifying and resolving the problem. They didn't hang about (important when charges run by the half hour) and they did a great job clearing up afterwards.

Excellent service, very professional and knowledgable. We had Sam come out to our hospitality business due to a blocked drain. He did what was required without disrupting our guests and gave us great advise for avoiding any future problems. He was friendly, professional and efficient.

Highly recommend and will use for any other future issues we may come across.

Josh and Mason came and fixed our Dental Practice's toilet this morning and they were so polite, efficient and friendly and fixed the problem within a couple of hours!! Hopefully we wont need to call again anytime soon but if we do we wont use anyone else now.

Miss Clayton

I have an ongoing problem with my manhole overflowing with foul waste. This was my second visit in a year by Josh and Mason to unblock my manhole and flush out the drains. Lots of water was used and the paths cleaned afterwards. Brilliant service.

Then Josh used the CCTV to try and track the problem and soon realised that the escape manhole had dropped and the water was struggling uphill in the pipe to clear the toilet paper and waste! We could see where the pipes from the kitchen and bathrooms met in the manhole. I was allowed to look myself and I could see for myself the state of this problem. He checked the depth of the two manholes and the measurements proved this problem.

I waited for a quote for the upgrade of my system and it does need to be done, or I will be having to call out ‘Drain Division’ more often!

Thank you very much for very good service and advice.

I know this type of work is not cheap, but with a ten year guarantee, I am very satisfied.

Rang about a blocked nearly overflowing toilet and they were able to send someone around with in the hour. They unblocked the toliet in no time at all. Very efficient and polite.

Christine Weatherley

09/06/2021

Arrived as agreed. The situation was dire here and the remedy expensive but that is what I expected when they explained the problem. There was cctv so I could see the problems for myself. They were tactful and pleasant, I imagine that there are cheaper options but emergencies do come with significant costs.

The trouble with such problems when they arise is that diagnosing them is expensive so once the engineers are on site it is tricky not to proceed. If you are worried about costs, which are explained up front then shop around before you get anyone out.

Drain Division did an excellent job in sorting out our sewer blockage problem. I was very impressed with how hard the engineer and his assistant worked through two and a half days to sort out our problem. It was a difficult job (excavation, pipe lining required, etc) but the engineer was not fazed by it at all, very professional all round. I would definitely use them again.

Allan Armadale

I was very satisfied with the work that Drain Division completed for us. The initial survey brought up remedial works that were required. We agreed to the remedial works and they were completed to a high standard and in a timely manner. During the works Drain Division kept us advised of progress and the work was guaranteed for 10 years which I am led to believe from others I have spoken to is unusual. I was very pleased.

Our Church drains were totally blocked and the excellent service provided meant things were quickly cleared and back to normal. Great communication throughout and all toilets in both the Church and Hall were double checked before leaving the site.

Well deserved 5 stars.

Your boys were a credit to you, very tidy, very accommodating with “tricky” neighbours. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Drain division rectified some serious problems with my elderly mother's drains after completing a CCTV survey. Chris and his partner came out on the day and time arranged and couldn't have been more helpful. They showed us exactly what the problems were and offered a clear solution to the problems along with a very clear explanation that was easy to understand.

They were incredibly compassionate with my mother at what was a rather distressing time for her and the problem was dealt with in a very competent manner. Becky in the office was really helpful and the report sent out was comprehensive and clear. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company for any drain complaints, a very professional company from start to finish.

On Sunday afternoon we realised we had a problem with our foul drainage. My superficial investigation showed that 20 metres from the road was solidly blocked and the manhole full to the underside of the lid.

We called Drain Division at about 17.00 Sunday evening. Josh and his colleague arrived at 8.30 the next morning. They were supportive, professional, quick and efficient. It took them about an hour to clear the pipe work, inside the manholes and the drive. They then carried out a camera survey which they clearly explained to me. They liked my coffee, gave me a sensible bill and left me problem free.

The job of clearing a blocked gully in our house was carried out with efficiency and much tact and diplomacy by Jack and his colleague. We now await the report and CCTV to see where we go from here.

The response to my 93 year old mother's blocked loo and drain was very fast and the guys who sorted it were very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. I would certainly recommend to others. Thank you!

Called these guys to sort out our completely blocked drains and toilets. the lady said they would call 30 minutes before the engineers would arrive. that is indeed what happened.

Two of their finest went in search of our elusive drain access points (we live in a park home) so not standard and as I was suffering a broken foot could not help guide them. Very polite and courteous, they discussed the cost up front and when they found the blockage , explained that the problem and dealt with it accordingly.very open, honest and professional.

The chap that came in to check the toilets wore a covid mask and automatically removed his boots. Perfect !

Called them out to help unblock a stubborn egress pipe from the kitchen, and also for a general cleaning of all the drains exiting the house. House is a recent purchase, built 1910 and we have no map of drains. Engineer showed up within 2 hours.

No call-out fee but the team knew their stuff and clearly explained options and charges. I asked for the camera survey and stood alongside them & watched the whole thing. The team knew their stuff, worked hard and fast, and explained every step along the way. After the camera survey you've seen every inch of your drain system and know root causes for any issues downstream.

Certainly felt like the work quoted and done was what was required and of high quality and there were no surprises. This might not be the cheapest option out there but IMO you get what you pay for and woudl call on them again.

Booked the service, blocked toilet. The lady informed me that it would cost £139 per 1/2hour +vat. I asked if the work would have taken 1/2hour she replied it depended to what was the issue (that meant it could taken more than 1/2hour). The engineers have been professional and friendly explained every stages of what they were doing. They have, also, given advice to avoid again the same issue. I would use again and strongly recommend Drain Division ltd.

Phoned Drain Division at 8.30am and they were with me at Midday to sort out my issue. It was a bigger job than what was expected but the lads on the job were fantastic, very knowledgeable, and explained every part of the job and was upfront about the cost for each element of work. No hesitation in using them again - a great company with great standards.

A first class service. We live in Weymouth and had a blocked drain that was flooding our cellar. When I initially phoned (late afternoon), the lady in the office said an engineer would be able to visit first thing next day which was a Friday, she explained the costs for a visit and any additional costs of equipment that may be incurred.

Unfortunately, due to tree roots blocking the drain, it was not possible to clear the drain completely. Flooding problem temporary solved, but Alick, the engineer, explained that we needed the drain digging out and a new soak away installed. He prepared a quote there and then, in detail explaining the work involved and the costs, and that the work could be carried out early the next week. The quote seemed reasonable so we booked it. Alick and his team turned up as promised, even phoning to to confirm arrival times. They worked in appalling weather for 3 days, our garden is clay, so it was not an easy job.

We are very pleased with the results, Alick and his team were friendly and polite and did a good job clearing up when all the work was completed. We now have a cellar that does not flood!

Nobody wants a blocked drain, but when you have one you definitely want it fixed - Fast. Drain Division took my call and made it clear of the costs and the job was booked.

Josh came the next morning and was extremely friendly and solved the problem as quick as possible using a high pressure jet. So glad its solved and the smell has gone - Thank you.

I can't speak higher of this company, following a previous company attending site and starting work which turned out to be unnecessary which resulted in asking them to leave site I called Drain Division. I explained the predicament I was in and was reassured at the reaction I got from Paul on the other line. He was clearly not happy with what had taken place and talked me through what my next steps were and what they would do to help out with the issue.

Dave turned up shortly afterwards with a colleague (apologies didn't get his name) They were appauled at what had taken place and walked me through what they would do (which was a simple survey to provide a detailed plan as to what needed to be done to resolve the issue. Following this I received a detailed quote for work that was required and instructed Drain Division to proceed.

Dave and his colleague were here for 4 days and worked in the the dark hours to get the job done. They were both very friendly, always happy to explain things when I popped out asking how they were getting on, even towards the end when I pointed something out they said leave it with us we'll sort that out for you which actually meant they stayed a day longer than anticipated.

I deal with clients daily and have to deal with all types and my job is always to go above and beyond even when your faced with difficult clients (not that I'm saying I was) but you can tell from their professionalism that this is their ethos also. Highly recommend, great company that was honest, reliable and went above and beyond.

Many thanks for all your hard work

Two really nice chaps from Drain Division came to our rental property twice to deal with a really bad blockage. I cannot express enough how friendly and professional these guys are. Focused on the task at hand, going above an beyond to get the job done and lovely personable guys at the same time. I would highly reccomend these guys to anyone.

I am truly impressed with the ethics of this outstanding company. They were very prompt with their competitive response to my drainage problem but furthermore pointed out that I should be able to get the work done cost free via the local Water Board. I contacted Southern who confirmed the same!

I was delighted - marvellous service - integrity and honesty. I can't recommend them highly enough.

This is my first experience of using Drain Division, I found them professional, friendly and efficient. Angie in the office always returns calls and is extremely efficient.

Fraser, Mason and the guys that came out were friendly knew what they were talking about and completed the job very thoroughly and went over and above to contact Thames Water to ensure this drain was also cleared as there was a block there too. They left the site neat and tidy - highly recommended company - thank you :)

Mark Wainwright

As a Plant Manager running a site with 150 employees it was imperative that my facilities were open and in working order pretty quick. After calling other well known companies, that failed to support us, we found Drain Division. Angie who we arranged the call out with was very supportive, great, fast communication and managed to arrange a team to attend site. Sam and his team arrived on Friday, carried out the inspection, and highlighted the works required.

The team worked all bank holiday weekend to ensure we were back up and running in no time. Really pleased with the work, the responsiveness and the professionalism of the guys on site. Great job - thank you so much!! We certainly know who to call first next time we get an issue!!

We had a blocked toilet so phoned up Drain Division and the lovely lady Becky on the phone was very helpful and had someone out within the hour.

I needed a CCTV drain survey for a house purchase at extremely short notice. Paul in the office was absolutely fantastic! He dealt direct with the estate agent on our behalf and got it completed within 24 hours. We received a soft copy AND a printing version through the post.

We needed an urgent drain survey on a property we wanted to buy because if title issues regarding the mains sewage connection. Angie from Drain Division was superb, arranging an urgent site visit. I spoke to the engineer immediately after the site visit to receive a verbal report and then received the formal report with photos and videos and drain survey soon after. The whole process was seamless from start to finish and I can certainly recommend their company.

Nicola Ross

21/08/2020

The operatives came out very promptly on the same day as our initial phone call and carried out the drain survey quickly and professionally. They were very polite and informative and nothing was too much trouble. As we needed a quick turn round on the report they fast tracked it for us and we got it very quickly. Many thanks for your excellent service and I would recommend you to others.

The two men who cleared our blockage & subsequently lined our drain had a real ‘can do’ attitude which gave us every confidence that they would do a good job at a time we were extremely worried about it. They were cheerful & worked relentlessly to get the job done. Well done.

Terry Palmer

13/08/2020

I needed to get a drain survey done so I contacted Drain Division and a team was on-site the following day - fantastic! The guys were great and kept me informed of what was going on all the time. Problems were discovered, as we expected, and they really explained what was going on and what would be needed to fix it. I decided to go ahead the next day and the day after that the guys were back on-site and completed all the repairs, taking care to show me what was happening every step of the way. We have complete peace of mind now! Highly recommended, we couldn't be happier.

Issue with upstairs toilet which was potentially a blocked drain. Good communication from the 2 guys who came. They were speedy, efficient and friendly...very professional. I was pleasantly surprised at how good they were.

Miss Clayton

12/08/2020

I received very good professional service from two very pleasant engineers-Josh and Mason. My drain was unblocked very quickly and the men cleaned up very well. It was a hot afternoon and I was so pleased to get rid of the blockage as getting rather smelly!

I was given lots of advice and Josh was very concerned about my recurring drain problem, so he suggested I book him to come back and place the camera down the drain.

Unfortunately there was not time on this visit as they arrived at 5.30pm. after getting stuck in traffic in Bristol! I live in Chippenham and the two engineers still had one more call to make.

I was told 2/3 hours at my initial booking call, but it took 5 and a 1/2 hours for them to get to me!!

Despite this moan I was very satisfied with the service.

I am really pleased to be writing a great review for these guys! Angie has been amazingly proactive and has turned round our reports in record time. Dave the engineer who came was also very helpful and supportive. We look forward to instructing them again in future.
