Filling in this form  will instantly give you estimates to investigate and unblock the drains on your property. These prices will come directly from Drainage Specialists who cover your local area. You will also be provided with their contact details, all within less than a second. You can then contact them directly and discuss their prices and service. Should you wish to place an order you would deal with them directly. There is no middle man.

The drainage specialists listed on this website will provide an estimate for the minimum cost to visit a property, investigate the cause of a blockage and fix it.  These estimates are from local specialists who cover the area where your property is located.  The estimate price in each case is based on there being adequate access to the drains, usually via man hole covers, and assumes that the work is quite straight forward.   Complete the form above to receive a set of drainage contractors that you can make direct contact with and discuss your requirements.

The work involved can vary considerably depending on the severity of the problem.  Sometimes the problem can be resolved by jetting the inside of the drain which breaks up and removes the blockage and renews the flow.   It is possible that the blockage may be caused by tree root infestation or by the collapse of a drain pipe.  The cost to implement a permanent repair in these instances could be quite considerable.  

It is important to identify and agree the various charges with the supplier you choose before work commences.  You should establish what the hourly rate is and whether it includes VAT.  Be aware that some contractors will give you a rate per half hour and not per hour and so you need to ensure that you are both clear on the rate and the unit of time being applied (hourly or half hourly).  In other words the cost to unblock a drain might be around £100 or if major work is required the bill might approach £1,000 or more.

There are no widely recognised accreditation programmes setting standards in the drainage industry in the UK.  There are, however, a lot of contactors who provide a high level of service and who recognise the need to introduce standards, following through with training courses for their operatives and accreditation programmes.  The National Association of Drainage Contractors (NADC),  , now operates an accreditation service and some contractors have completed their training courses and obtained accreditation.  This is very welcome and it is hoped that this process will continue and that it will benefit both the drainage contractors and their customers.

I filled in details and got a soft email approach by varying companies on your panel. Very nice way to do business. I used Drainage Repair CompanyI cannot praise this company enough, they came around the house and were very thorough in their search and the report was very comprehensive as we were in disputes with a neighbour over their tree damaging our drains. They have backed down in light of their report so I am happy.
