I can't recommend Drain Surgeons highly enough. Stuart and Bee were brilliant! We moved house 2 weeks ago and had already had 2 other drain companies and 3 visits to try and sort out a blockage with no Luck. Stuart and Bee took the time to explain what they would do and answered all our questions. They removed the blockage completely and identified an issue in the pipe that we were able to see by camera They were very Knowledgeable, professional, neat and tidy, but above all they sorted out the blockage and then made sure we were absolutely happy before they left. The will also be coming back to sort out the problem causing the blockage.....!read more

Jack and Bee came late to near Newbury on a dark, rainy Saturday night no more than an hour after we called. They were very professional, extremely courteous and couldn't have been more helpful. They sorted out the problem quickly and then spent extra time to look at what had caused the problem and how to stop it happening again. would recommend with no hesitation. Thanks guys!read more

My tenant uses Drain Surgeons for regular emptying of the septic tank, on the last visit they reported that the two manhole covers were damaged / missing and didn’t have proper frames installed. As an overseas landlord it was extremely helpful to be provided with a written report containing clearly labeled photographs of the areas of concern and a fixed price which seemed very reasonable.I authorized the work and asked for the earliest opening in the schedule, when i followed up a couple of days later I was informed the work had already been carried out and was emailed a report of the repairs again with detailed photographs and no changes to the fixed price.I am extremely happy with the service, the quality of workmanship, the no hassle way Drain Surgeons coordinated with my tenant, and the interaction with the head office manager Luke, who dealt with everything, and once complete, provided various options for payment, which again was much appreciated being an overseas client.I will definitely use Drain Surgeons again if the need arises and would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone looking for their services.Phil Kirbyread more

We were lucky enough to have George attend to replace a manhole cover for us. He did a really great job and was so patient with my son who (from a safe distance) talked at him non-stop while he was completing the work!After George left, our son, said it was really nice to talk to someone new. He's been craving interaction since lockdown started and George was so good listening and chatting with him. He's a credit to a an extremely helpful, efficient company. An absolute gent!read more
