On attendance at the property, our engineer discovered the cause of the blockage to be 2 gardens up -not in the owners garden! The end of the drainage line was at the neighbouring property, not his own, so after checking this, the engineer could clear the run completely restoring flow right along the 3 properties.

The client says "your service was perfect, bang on! I'm only sorry that its cost me a lot extra to put a simple job right, I should have called you out 1st!"

A huge thank you!
