Unblocking of outside drains.
 
Cost: £108
 

"Andrew came out on the morning of the initial call and got on with the job immediately. He was both friendly and professional at all times and kept me informed of progress of the job.
This is the 3rd time, in 2 different properties, across 5 years we have dealt with the SOS team and highly recommend them. In fact, I wouldn't call anyone else.

Mark had to look at 3 different drains. Then checked that the toilet drain was in order. All cleaned and working perfectly. Excellent job and thorough.

"Due to Covid 19 wasn’t sure if we would be able to get work done. Phoned am and was advised mark would be with us within 1 hour. We were told price on phone and when mark arrived he got job done right away. New exactly what he was doing and no time wasted. Could not ask for a better job to be done. What a credit to a local company. Cannot thank you enough."

Unblocking a down pipe on three storey house following flooding in the house.
 
Cost: £150

"Saturday and Sunday
Heavy rain filled a blocked down pipe and water drained into a shower causing flooding which had to be baled. A neighbour's plumber told us about SOS drains ltd and my son phoned to learn that a man finishing work could come to us. He was very pleasant did the work required that Sunday afternoon. We were so relieved! "

"What can I say? These guys were brilliant , they did face a major problem . It looked a fairly straight forward drain blockage .... but it wasn't !
They persisted ( many times) but thankfully they managed to get the blockage sorted .
They were efficient , courteous ( and insisted on taking off their outdoor shoes every time they came from outside to in)
I would definitely highly recommend this team .

These guys are first class , I would definitely recommend them if you need this service."
