In these strange times, we’ve managed to keep working at Darren’s Drains in Norwich as we’re classed as key workers – both Darren and Lucky!

Makes sense really.

If drains and toilets get blocked, or drains need lining, you can’t expect someone to wait months for lockdown and Covid 19 disappear (we live in hope of a vaccine).

We practise safe working procedures with social distancing measures in place, masks and gloves are already a part of our normal wear too, without Coronavirus wreaking havoc on lives.

We’re looking forward to continuing to serve customers across Norfolk and Suffolk in July, just as we did last month.

If you follow our active Facebook page, you’ll already have a notion (we hope) of what we do and wear.

In case you’re not on Facebook, here’s a summary:

We had to clear a blocked bath at the start of the month – this had been out of use for months, but Darren wove his magic and got it functioning correctly.

The blocked bath

Shortly after the bath repair, we had to fix an opposite problem – overflowing drains. Because Norfolk and Suffolk are generally relatively dry, when there is rain, drains can become overwhelmed.

We also had a warm month and we were called to line drains in temperatures approaching 30 degrees in Norwich.

Luckily coastal work in Great Yarmouth, Gorleston, Bradwell and Lowestoft was a few degrees cooler, which was welcomed after inland heat.

What people seem to like about us is our fixed prices and transparent service. We don’t just fix a problem but diagnose problems.

If you are looking to establish the cause of frequent blockages or to investigate subsidence a CCTV survey will prove invaluable. We use state of art equipment to provide a professional and thorough service every time. We can offer our CCTV drain inspection and surveys across the Norfolk, Suffolk and all surrounding areas.

We also offer a home buyers surveys. This will give you peace of mind by showing up any defaults within the drainage system. Having carried out a CCTV Drain Survey we will be able to supply a written report and a DVD.

We looked at a new build in Bradwell in mid June, where CCTV showed that the drain had not been angled correctly – which the homeowner reported to the developer to fix.

Finally, we lined and repaired drains in Southwold, Attleborough and Pakefield, with a large job at Skinner’s in Suffolk where descaling and camera surveys were carried out.
