Clearance of drain blockages
Waste and debris can often build up in drainage systems, causing drains to work improperly, drain away slowly, and make gurgling noises. As a part of our service offering, our drain clearance specialists can easily remove the offending debris from your drains with an arsenal of effective drain clearing solutions.
Drain jetting and drain rodding
At Pimlico, our experienced plumbers know how to address each drain clearance issue with the correct solution. Depending on the extent and composition of the blockage, we either perform drainage rodding – inserting a metal rod into the debris to loosen it, or jetting – training a pressurised water stream onto the debris to dislodge it. For each drain, this solution will vary.
What our clients say
We are proud to support our clients across London with first class property maintenance services.
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.
The engineer was very experienced and sorted out the issues very soon. I am very happy with the services!
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
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
Very efficient and respond quickly. More expensive but work completed is very professional and reliable.
Installed a new hot water tap a few days ago and have also been to fix our heating. Drained the heating system and replaced 2 leaking radiator valves. Great job
Pimlico Plumbers really offer a five star service. Their work is excellent, and you can trust their time estimates etc. We have used them several times and been satisfied every time, They are not the cheapest, but they get it right first time! All of the people I have met are pleasant, friendly and efficient.
Excellent service. At the house with 30min and fixed the plumbing issue very quickly. Made sure everything is in order cleaned up and asked if I wanted anything else. Very polite and knew his stuff. no waiting time. strongly recommend
Seamus is a superb 1st class electrician thorough, hardworking and concise in his work and communication.
Excellent service, arrived on time and hot water tap working perfectly. Would highly recommend and Mick was a star!
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.
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.
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!
Couldn't have been better - thank you
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!
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
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, had all the materials to replace my bathroom extractor fan. Same day service. As always very professional and efficient.
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.
This carpenter was found to be most efficient in all aspects of the work that was carried out, and highly experienced.
