  • Drain blockage repair.

    We had a blocked drain that neither a plumber, builder or drain company could fix, each suggesting the other needed to do it.
    We called Karl at Speedy Drains who came out, cleared the blockage with minimal disruption, resolving the problem and clearing the drains.
    Using CCTV he identified a broken joint underground, provided a reasonable quote to make the repair, and did so in good time, installing a new drain access to allow easy access to any future issues.
    He did the work quicker than had planned and the final bill was less than the original quote. That is excellent service and a sign of great integrity. As a customer its assuring you being given a good service at a reasonable price.
    He provided pictures of both the work being completed, and underground, providing assurance that the problems was identified and was completed to a good standard.
    I would highly recommend Karl for any drain problems. He has the knowledge, kit, and expertise to fix drain blockage and repairs, underground and round your property, that others dont know what to do.
    Highly commended. Thank you Karl. Excellent service.

  • Taps and shower

    Would not recommend this guy to my worst enemy it took him nearly 4 hours to change a kitchen tap he took my sink out to do it 😧and damaged my worktops he had me helping him preventing me from doing my work and he had 3 new taps provided by us but went and bought one God knows why . He then fitted my shower over bath whilst l was out running around for him and fitted the shower in wrong place and blamed me 😖he knew there was a screen to fit with it but lied and said he didn't no about it . So with holes in my.expensive tiles.and shower wrong place he then removed my bath panel then wanted to DRILL through it to put it back on. There was absolutely no need to do this .he said he was fixing the plug which wasn't broke .So l have to refit shower and replace tiles then fit bath panel re seal bath .We have had problems with no hot water from boiler since Karl came here l have to keep water heater on a snail Would run faster than the kitchen tap KARL supplied and fitted and now have a NEW LEAK under sink and dishwasher fills up with sink water SCRATCHED WORKTOPS as he took sink out (WHY WOULD ANYONE) l have cream stair carpet so have his BIG oily footprints all way up stairs as he had no respect no groundsheets etc and to completely finish me of turned up at husbands work asking for payment which my husband paid due to the embarrasment of this awful man turning up at work .So this is all TRUE and FACTUAL and if anyone uses KARL you have been Forewarned and can contact me for FACTS.

  • Installation of external soil stack

    We had Karl round to quote on moving an internal soil stack to the outside. He was very knowledgeable and pointed out some major issues which meant we couldn't move the soil stack (ie the soil stack would have come out in the conservatory roof!). Two previous plumbers had not spotted this. We decided to leave the soil stack where it was. Two weeks later we had a major water leak and to top it off the stop cock broke so we had water everywhere. one telephone call and 20 minutes later and Karl came to our rescue. He got the water turned off, a new stop cock fitted and the leak mended efficiently and with a smile on his face. Great guy and excellent work. Would highly recommend

He exceeded my expectations by using a CCTV camera to check all drains 1 by 1, I now know the route from each manhole cover. He also made recommendations to improve the drainage setup on site and to avoid too many visible pipes in the kitchen. I can't recommend Karl enough and have already asked him to quote for addition work.

I would highly recommend Karl to anyone with drainage/emergency issues as he has a great level of knowledge and experience to be able to sort problems properly, not to do a slap-dash job.

    Karl upgraded my bathroom. After getting cowboy people to work after a flood I was very nervous about getting a trades person in. When Karl came to do the evaluation he put my mind at ease and when he was completing the work he was very friendly and reassuring. When the work was being carried out he did it with speed and was very professional, leaving the area clean and tidy after every day. I am very pleased with the work carried out and I would highly recommend him.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    This was my first meeting with Karl after finding my drains blocked for the second time. I found him very efficient, and polite. Talked me through all the procedure that would be done. He also gave me a good quote for follow up work that would be needed to stop the problem. He arrived on time and I find his prices within my budget. Karl's strengths, mmm, I think he would go that extra mile. He tidied up after himself, and cleaned around the drains not just down them.
