We called Paul late on Monday the 28th Feb. He came to see us the following morning after keeping another appointment, although he did ask first if we needed help that day. He came well equipped for the job and very quickly cleared the blockage.

His rates are very reasonable. A truly professional job well done. We are delighted and strongly recommend him.

I selected this company because of previous reviews on this site and I was not disappointed. Fast, efficient, knowledgeable, considerate and a reasonable price. I have no hesitation in recommending Paul and will use his services again should the need arise.

This person was fantastic in that the job requested was unusual (removing vegetation growth from the upper area of the side of the house beside the drain pipe).

Was quick to visit and carried the work out on a Sunday - a very rare thing indeed - so I did not have to take time off of work myself! Was very tidy in cleaning up debris afterwards.

Needed a blocked underground rainwater pipe to a soak away to be cleared (not an emergency). Paul called when promised, cleared the blockage and gave advice as how to adapt the down pipe to make access easier in future.

Used Paul in February 2010. I live in a cul-de-sac which is a private road and we had a serious blockage in the main sewage pipe. Paul arrived on time as specified and was happy to investigate and clear all blockages throughout the network, ensuring all six households were clear.

He even returned next day to sort out a neighbour who had not been available earlier. Outstanding service and a very reasonable price. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Absolutely excellent. I live in Ipswich and called up in a panic with blocked drains and a family to sort out at tea-time. The chap came out within the hour and there was no messing about - a quick look and he knew it needed a power flush. It was an impressive job, for a set price agreed at the outset - competitive too. I can't recommend the service enough.

Very helpful and professional service. Paul came when he said he would and worked hard to sort out our problem. Would definitely use him again and recommend him.

Paul was punctual, courteous and very thorough, resolving the problem completely to my satisfaction. Although this is the first time I have used the services of Mersea Drains (I got them through Which Local), I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other Which Local members.

Agreed completely with previous user. They even cleared soil from and opened my inspection cover with no extra on the original quote despite considerable effort being involved. Very good.

Cheapest quote I had in the area from about 6 for unblocking house drains. Charged by time and stayed to that time. Punctual did the job well and advised on part missing from system. No bull.
