Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer 24 hour callouts in Newcastle?

If you have a blocked drain in Newcastle, you want it sorted as soon as possible. We offer a 24/7 same-day drain unblocking service. No matter the time of day, get in touch and our team will help.

What causes a blocked drain?

There are a number of reasons why you may have a blocked drain but generally speaking, there are three main causes:

  • Fat, grease and oils that are disposed of down your sink solidify when they cool and can cause a build-up in the system over time.
  • Flushing non-flushable items down the toilet, such as wet wipes and nappies, can build-up and restrict water flow.
  • Sometimes, external factors, such as tree roots, can cause problems with your drains and in the most serious instances, even collapse the pipes.

What are the signs of a blocked drain?

If you think you have a blocked drain, there are some common signs to look out for, including:

  • Glugging plugholes
  • Water that rises in your toilet after flushing
  • Slow-draining showers, baths and sinks
  • Smelly drains
  • Overflowing manholes and gullies.

If you have any of these problems in your home, it’s important to get your drains checked by an expert as soon as possible. Doing so means you can prevent further damage from occurring.

How much does a professional drain unblocking service cost?

Unlike other drain unblocking companies in Newcastle, we offer professional drain unblocking for a flat rate of just £85. This includes clearing the blockage, dye-testing for full flow and camera surveillance.

When is a drain blockage my responsibility?

You are typically responsible for clearing any blocked drains that are within your property boundary or are connected to your home.

If the blockage is located in a lateral drain – drain pipes that are outside of your property boundary and connect to the public sewer – it is the responsibility of the water company to clear.

Honest, Reliable & Upfront Pricing.

No Call-Out Charges Or Hidden Fees.

Our Reputation Is Built On Our Results.

24/7, Same-Day Service Guaranteed.

Spoke to Michael at PDS, explained the problem, was told a clear & concise price and a timescale for completion.Himself and a colleague arrived at the time advised, checked the problem with the toilet/pipework, decided the work could be completed on the day (this being yesterday) & then did so. Clearly explained what the problem was and advised for future care.Both of the crew were really polite and left the place - which, when its involving water and pipes, in bathrooms can be challenging - clean and tidy.On checking after leaving overnight, problem resolved. Really pleased with the work done & would engage again if we had any other pipework issues.Payment resolved via Banking App on completion of job, worth the fee paid.

Trading with a trusted account manager is what can make your dreams come through. For me Mrs. Rochelle Nelson has the best trading strategies to win. I never believed on any post recommending online trading until I gave a try and the outcome was great for me. Making $8750 out of $1000 was a whole lot of profit for me.

Was worried about a possible blocked drain as had had problems previously so having read reviews called PDS & Michael was able to assure me drains were fine. He did suggest some other work which made sense and a further visit was arranged for this to be done. Work was all carried out timeously and at a fair price. Michael's knowledge and advice was appreciated and so if you have a drainage related problem I would highly recommend Michael and his company PDS !

From the outset Michael was fantastic. I emailed him the issue and he visited the house the next day and supplied his quote. I gave him the job and he had it completed within a few days. He always kept me up to date with progress and supplied all the report and information quickly which helped with my insurance claim for the blocked drain ! Excellent service and a very competitive quote. Thanks again Michael !!

Cost - Excellent, no hidden charges.Reliability - Excellent always turns up and accommodates panic situations.Workmanship - Excellent, tests everything and goes over with customer to ensure satisfaction.I've used Michael in the past to clear a blocked sewage pipe that couldn't be unblocked using rods due to possible rock or something in there. Michael showed me the blockage on CCTV, used specialist equipment and cleared the blockage. Today had him round replacing an old broken clay drain waste, found underground in my driveway, which was exposed when digging foundations for a porch, rain water was leaking from it into my foundations. He carefully exposed the broken pipe by breaking away the concrete enough to replace with a new drain & pipe. Tested no more leaks and flow is fantastic. Thank you mate, my porch project is back on track.

I contacted Michael for a second opinion after getting what sounded like a ridiculous quote (£280) from another company for a high pressure washout of a blocked pipe (which would not actually have fixed my problem, thus adding further cost to the original price).He came to my place the next day to have a look, talked me through what he thought the problem was and why he felt a high pressure unblock was not appriproprate. He went through in detail how best to approach the situation with Plan A , Plan B etc, and after starting work, the problem was exactly as he predicted.Work was carried out in a very clean and professional manner, and I got billed exactly what he said it would cost, which was a fraction of what the other company quoted!Cannot recommend this company enough!
