Andy responded promptly to my call. He inspected the work later the same day and carried it out at 0900 the next day. He was competent, confident and cheerful, and didn't try to make the work seem difficult. I'd recommend him in a flash. (Reviewed December 2017)
Used them before (Reviewed November 2017)
Exemplary - initially they tried to help with simple remedies over the phone to avoid a visit. We had a fairly difficult problem with the drains but the service, information, explanations and efficiency was very reassuring. Not often you get such a prompt and friendly co-operative service. The problem was finally resolved, and the charges are very reasonable considering the work carried out. Highly recommened. (Reviewed November 2017)

Andy was very professional, had good people skills and his experience proved to be invaluable when dealing with the problems I had with my drainage. He explained what was happening and how he would overcome the issues. His determination to fix the problems resulted in a first class service. (Reviewed August 2016)
Andy was extremely efficient and came to our house to unblock our drains within 24 hours of calling him. He was very informative & gave us good advice as to what our next step should be which was to contact our local water provider. He declined to use a cctv camera which he could have done to earn a few extra quid but he said the next step would be to contact our local water company as they are the ones at fault. He explained to us what we should say when we call the water company & that if we received any problems from them that we were to call him & he would happily speak to them on our behalf. I would not hesitate to use this company again & after using other companies to unblock our drains I wouldn't use anyone else. (Reviewed July 2016)
Amazing service from start to finish. Came out within 2 and a half hours. Andy was a friendly guy with loads of experience and new exactly what the problem was.

Found this company from Plymouth City Council's Buy With Confidence web page. Drain Care provided a prompt, efficient and comprehensive service.
I had a drain blockage from a downstairs toilet (first one in fifteen years), which was diagnosed and fixed within forty-five minutes or so. The company responded to my call with a same day service.
The operator, Andy, was very professional and competent and kept me fully informed of what he was doing. He offered advice on possible causes and the option of a free pipe tv scan if the blockage recurred, also how to deal with any potential household insurance claim should this be necessary.
Would definitely recommend this company.
