Local drainage experts

With our extensive network of drain tradesmen, it is easy for us to provide drain unblocking services near you, which makes our services faster, and more efficient than any other. Our drainage specialists carry out many drainage services including unblocking drains, cleaning drains, CCTV drainage surveys, drain inspections, and emergency drainage services. We also install a variety of drains such as French drains and surface drainage systems.

Blocked drains

Blocked drains are a huge nuisance to anyone. Our drain unblocking specialists can help to unblock toilets, unclog kitchen sinks, and generally unblock any drainage pipe that may be stuck in your property.

CCTV surveys

The root of drainage issues is sometimes unclear, which is why a CCTV drainage survey can help to identify any faults causing the issue. Our specialists will insert a camera into your drains to diagnose the problem.

Drain clearance

Our drainage experts can easily assess and clear your blocked drains, while also removing any debris and blockages with ease and ensuring your drains aren't damaged and are functioning correctly.

Drain emergency

We take drain emergencies seriously, matching your sense of urgency with a speedy 24/7 emergency London drainage service, where we aim to respond to your emergency within the hour.

Drain repairs

After the CCTV survey, we are able to provide drain repairs if necessary. One very effective solution is drain lining, which involves cleaning and then inserting a polymer tube into the pipe.

Boiler replacement and radiator move very professional

James and Andrew spent 2 days replacing the boiler and replumbing radiators. Highly professional approach, keeping all their equipment tidy, insuring all replacement work was of the highest standard and fully compliant. It's not cheap, but you get real peace of mind with the work done.

Quick to reply and fix the issues in an expert manner

The engineer was very experienced and sorted out the issues very soon. I am very happy with the services!

Joanne Tipping
So impressed

So impressed - fantastic electrician Andrew fixed the kitchen under-cabinet lights that were flickering. He diagnosed and fixed the issue incredibly quickly, replacing the LED-driver unit with a brand new one and also fixed another electrical fault which he discovered.

Super friendly, professional and expert.

Highly recommended 10/10

Thank you!

Bella Lisovitskaya
Good service

Used a locksmith from Pimlico who completed works to a high standard and was fully equipped. At the end, offered if there was anything other carpentry work they could do. Quite pricey but a no fuss experience so very worth it

I contacted Pimlico and 45 minutes later

I contacted Pimlico and Darren, a drains specialist arrived inside 45 minutes. Within another 45 minutes he’d found the cause of my drain blockage, cleared it and cleaned up after himself. Great service.

Adam came out at short notice to help us. We’ve used PP before. The very best and worth the cost. The job is always done properly to the highest standard.

Nicholas M
Annual gas check

Annual gas check including boiler and gas fire place. The service received was excellent and the work was carried out in a very clean and timely manner by Pimlico Plumbers.

My new boiler had developed a small but definite leak

Continuity of care is important to me, so it was a pleasure and a relief when Julian arrived to fix it.
I always appreciate his expertise and kindness .
Definitely my knight in shining armour!
Thanks Julian

Ruth Butler

Couldn't have been better - thank you

Karina Sauerland
Excellent service

My hot water stopped working in the morning, I called Pimlico and within 30 minutes the plumber had arrived. Lee was very cheerful and competent. He diagnosed the issues, purchased the required parts, and had everything installed & working before the end of the day. Great!

Great service from Pimlico

We needed a plumber to rectify a leak under the kitchen sink. The technician turned up exactly on time and put in a full days work. As part of this he replaced the incoming pipework, valves and flexible hoses which was necessary. His workmanship was excellent and we now have a proper, well laid out and installed water & waste system as opposed to the spaghetti that existed before. Service was excellent as it has been on previous occasions when we have used Pimlico.

Happy with Service

We have been very happy with the service we have received - the problem we had has been explained to us and given us the correct information we needed to resolve the issue.
Will use again

Quality craftsmanship and great customer service

I have used Pimlico Plumbers for a few jobs in the past few years (mostly plumbing and electrical). Their workers are always polite, friendly, and considerate. They take care of your property and belongings (e.g. taking their shoes off in the house, covering/protecting surfaces, and cleaning after the job). Their work is thorough, of quality, and they keep you up to date through out the process. I highly recommend Pimlico Plumbers.

A completely outstanding job

Josh, Mike and Barry have done a completely outstanding job. In particular, I would highlight the attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship in the work implemented. All three take a real pride in doing a great job.
Thank you for putting this team on my job.

They’re the true experts!

As ever the adage about getting what you pay for is very true - and with Pimlico you are getting the absolute best quality of professionals. In all of my dealings with Pimlico, I’ve appreciated their transparency around estimates, their advice as they’ve worked with me to get what I want and stay within budget, as well as their positive attitudes - not to mention the work itself which I’ve found to be meticulous, organised, and considerate. I’d happily recommend Pimlico for anyone else considering minor or extensive bathroom renovations, or anything else for that matter - they’re the true experts!

A De Grunchy
I have no hesitation in recommending Pimlico

I recently completed a project with Pimlico which involved stripping two bathrooms and doing a full renovation of both. The project was completed on time, on budget, and to the highest professional standards. I am thrilled with the results.
Throughout the communication between myself, the contractor, and the Pimlico team was excellent. E-mails and phone calls were without exception responded to promptly, and where appropriate, action initiated.
I have no hesitation in recommending Pimlico, based on my experience.

Excellent service

Excellent service, had all the materials to replace my bathroom extractor fan. Same day service. As always very professional and efficient.

Miguel Municio
Skilled carpentry work

We had Ed Jackson, a carpenter to undertake some works of repair to wooden flooring and install two shelves in a fitted cupboard. His work was excellent, he was a pleasure to have around and we shall certainly ask for him again.

Highly experienced carpenter

This carpenter was found to be most efficient in all aspects of the work that was carried out, and highly experienced.

Drainage FAQs

A CCTV Drain survey takes around 1-2 hours to complete. Sometimes, the cause of a drainage issues is obvious, but as your drains are underground, it can be hard to identify more complex issues. That is why the best course of action is often a CCTV drain survey. These surveys allow us to see underground and diagnose your drainage issues very accurately.

In drainage emergencies, we aim to address the problem within one hours. For any other non-emergency, we offer flexible booking times to allow you to choose a time that suits you best. The length of the drains unblocking and actual service varies based on what is causing the blockage.

Your drains have just been unclogged and you’re wondering “how do I avoid blocked drains in the future?”. Here is a list of what to avoid putting in drains to prevent blockages.

  • Hand/Baby wipes
  • Sanitary products
  • Nappies
  • Cotton buds or pads
  • Coffee grounds
  • Hair
  • Grease, fats or oils
  • Conventional cleaning products
  • Flushable cat litter

The first signs of a blocked drain are usually very obvious, with slowly draining water, and an overflowing toilet being key indicators. However, sometimes the signs of blocked drains are less obvious, for example, you may notice a sulfuric smell, or other noxious odour, or you may even hear gurgling. If you are unsure, you can call a professional for a drainage survey.
