Installing a new sewage treatment tank to replace existing non-compliant septic tank -Justin and Aaron, have done a fantastic job. I cannot praise them enough, and your backup team as well, the electricians and the tanker driver etc.Professional: Everything done correctly, documented daily, made safe continuously.Careful: This was tricky access, but the guys were so careful to avoid damage and keep things clean.Personable: Such nice guys, a pleasure to chat with them and understand what they were doing.Job well done: It works fine, and by the time they have finished they will have repaired the lawn, brought in new topsoil and grass seed, all of which are beyond my expectations.Value for money: I got 5 quotations and you were the lowest by far. But the standard of work is impeccable.read more

I called Drain Surgeons Ltd at 9.30am Monday because my loos weren’t flushing and sinks not draining. I thought my sewage tank needed emptying. Seb turned up in his tanker before 11.30, saw the tank was far from full, and the treatment system and pump were working well. So he set about looking for a blockage, which he found and then dealt with very quickly.He was brilliant - really helpful, explained everything well and was clearly determined to sort out any problems before he left.The office staff were all very good too. Whole service quite exceptional.read more

Excellent and professional service, from the lovely lady I spoke to on the phone, and from the engineer who attended.I was searching for quotes and availability online and there was absolutely no sales pressure. The receptionist was really helpful and organised for me to pay the invoice within 15 minutes... I was updated by email and the engineer arrived and was courteous, professional and tidied away everything well. Then left once the job was done..before I could give them a tip.I will definitely use this service again..!Friendly, Professional and fab knowledge about what a septic tank and housekeeping of that entails... Very impressed!Thank you 😊read more

Brilliant job! My drain had blocked (of course) at a weekend. Exceptionally friendly service from the person who answered the phone. The lovely man who did the drain was quick, helpful and equally friendly. I will definitely have Drain Surgeons as my 'go to' for any future drain work. Expensive but if this is the quality of service Drain Surgeons usually give then they are well worth the money.read more

Drain Surgeons responded to an emergency on a Saturday afternoon to the great relief of my elderly parents. Despite being out of geographic range they offered assistance and were extremely professional with their contact and kept us completely informed, and clear about the pricing and timings. The driver Pete, arrived from over 50 miles away with a few hours of our request for help, resolved the problem and left my parents and I very impressed and grateful. It is not possible to do better than this.read more

We had a complicated job site which required, multiple tankers on site during night works. We have worked with Drain Surgeons before and contacted them regarding these works. They arrived on site early and went straight to work as soon as the traffic management was in place. They worked tirelessly throughout the night to complete the works without issue. We would highly recommend Drain Surgeons and will be using them again.read more

Nasty smell in our kitchen which turned out to be a collapsed sewer after recent building works. Drain Surgeons came out same-day, versus the weeks waits I'd had quoted elsewhere, found the problem and were able to get out and fix it all the next day. Friendly staff, efficient and effective. Would definitely recommend!read more
