Thank you for being the best plumber we have ever worked with in years!
I can confirm that after having worked with numerous plumbers to eliminate an odour problem in our apartment and also in our building for years– DRAINMEN SERVICES ultimately resolved the problem.
Thanks again for your patience in working with us. I was impressed with the advanced technology you used to detect the source of the problem. You were also extremely professional in communicating the building defects that caused the odour to the body corporate and the Pam Golding team that manages our building.
Thank you again. You are the only plumber I would use. Drainmen Services’ staff were undoubtedly true professionals and provided us the best service ever.

Good day David,
I trust you and your team are well. I would like to extend a huge thank you for your services you have provided us on MyCiti. James and his guys have gone over and above what is required.
It is an privilege to work with such a capable contractor as yourself and we look forward to building our relationship.
I have been going daily to the site, mainly to ensure no problems with the
I report back to you all is fine, and must tell you that your teams
have done a really great job ! Not easy with all that digging and manhandling
that large septic tank system.
I get to see lots of ‘teams’ ie roofing, gardening, boreholes, painting etc, and reckon yours must
get the first prize !!! I look forward to working with you on more jobs and projects to come.
Two guys came to my house last night to fix my overflowing sewerage drains – headed up by Sandile – I just wanted to send a message of thanks to them both – they were professional, hard working and kept me informed of the progress. They worked late and only left after 7pm last night and were off to another job after me.
I like to pass on positive feedback when I have a good experience.
I would like to commend the team who did the work at our home last Monday. They were a friendly, efficient team who worked consistently and never seemed to be wasting time or dithering around. They worked well together and were a pleasure to deal with. I would not hesitate to recommend Drainmen to anyone who needed plumbers.

“I WISH THERE WAS A DRAINMEN SERVICES IN CENTURION!”
I would just like to commend your Drainmen Team for the work that they did at our home today. Their workmanship is excellent. They were quick, efficient and neat. They communicated with me every step of the way and did everything within their power to get the problem sorted out. Our drains are clear and within working order once again. What a relief!. Please thank them once again on our behalf. I was very impressed with your company’s good service and front men. I would definitely recommend you to our family and friends in the future. Thank you for the pleasant experience.
Dear Drainmen Manager
I never thought I could find plumbing (that’s the conventional type, of course) interesting, but I saw two very skilled guys at their trade today – and it was a pleasure to watch. We had had a toilet drainage problem for a long period and nobody in the industry seemed to be able to fix it. We were on the point of giving up, but decided to try Drainmen Services as a last resort. Billy and Allouise from Drainmen came along at exactly at 0915 as scheduled and were consummate professionals. They proceeded to:
1. Unblock the problem drain from the manhole side using normal extensions and routers
2. Test all 4 toilets in the house to check how they flowed and where they fed into the main drain
3. Insert the camera down the “problem toilet” below the stairwell
4. Identify a very tricky “system” of “soft roots” growing in about a 0.5m length of the pipe at a joint in a particular section before it joins the main pipe coming down from the upstairs toilets.
5. Use an electronic sensor to pinpoint the exact location of the camera at the point it encountered the root system
6. Attempt to remove the roots with a “soft router” but, predictably, the router couldn’t grip onto the roots and pull them out. The roots were too soft to be taken out, but significant enough to catch toilet paper and waste and cause a blockage after 3 or 4 flushes. Also, they were growing upwards (i.e. towards the toilet) so they would catch the waste rather than allow it to flow by.
7. There were three options left to try to solve the problem:
a. Sulphuric Acid
b. Blast with a specialised hose under huge pressure
c. Dig under the loo and into the new room (a big job).
8. They did option b. first (using a specialised hose and a generator from the lorry) and it worked beautifully. When the camera was re-inserted, the roots had been cleaned out completely!
The roots will grow back over time (approx. 1 year I guess) – but my strong view is that we simply treat the symptoms now that we know exactly where the problem is.
A very good outcome! Please extend my thanks to Billy and Allouise for a job very well done. ”
Hi, this is just a short note to say you guys are AWESOME in your marketing!! You’ve taken the traditional image of plumbing, the “guy with the plumber’s bum” image and turned it onto its head!! You’ve made plumbing funky with your branding and marketing – awesome:D
We recently had an emergency with burst water pipes resulting in a complete overhaul of the bathroom.. We contacted Drainmen and are thrilled to say They were professional and efficient in their workmanship and completed the job with no delays resulting in the least of inconvenience to the members of the household.
They are a company that I would not hesitate to use again in the future should the need arise.
Many thanks Drainmen
Just a quick email to thank you for your exceptional service. Your staff member Jonathan and his assistant attended repairs at our house in Claremont yesterday. They were very courteous, professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with – even at the end of a very long day! Please pass on our thanks and compliments – Drainmen is the company we will always deal with in the future.
Many thanks, regards
Mike & Ethel Wingham ”
Good day David
I would just like to send a short thank you note for the tidy work that was done whilst repairing our leaking shower floor. The two gentlemen that did the repair did a brilliant job and left no mess. I was amazed to see the progress without finding one speck of dust after they left.
One is always dubious when builders come to do work at your home, because you expect a mess and dust in places that aren’t even effected by the renovations, but in this case it was the tidiest job I’d ever seen.
Thank you to you and a great team.
A big thanks to Gavin and his team (in particular Chad) who helped me out last week and on Monday.
On Thursday morning I contacted Greg to help me with my washing machine and a leaking toilet. I have used Drainmen a few times, and so it was nice that they knew who I was when I called. Chad came out at midday and sorted me out. Not TWO hours later, a pipe burst in my other toilet. I wanted to weep.
I called the guys back and they were back again to sort me out, and they didn’t charge me for the second call out, which was so kind of them. I noticed that the flush mechanism in the toilet wasn’t working 100% and they came out again on Monday to sort it out. And then today Chad called to follow up that everything was working fine. AWESOME service!!
And this is not the first time Gavin and his team have come to my rescue (a few burst geysers, leaking roofs, burst pipes…. and each time they will make a plan to get to me that day to help me out. Fantastic, so impressed.
I reside in Cape Town Northern Suburbs and made use of your Kenridge Franchise service today.
This particular Franchise is a great ambassador for your brand and it has been an absolute pleasure in dealing with them.
I will have no hesitation to refer as many people as possible to make use of Drainmen – given the nature of the work sometimes, it is quite refreshing (no pun intended) to find guys who are so professional in what they do.
Dear Mr Olivier, A short note to let you know how pleased I was with the service of Drainmen and your very efficient, determined and professional staff. They persevered until they got the job done properly. Having had numerous plumbing problems in the past, including the repeated unsuccessful unblocking of this particular drain. I will definitely be using your services in the future and will be recommending your company to everyone I know.
Just a note to say how impressed I am with the workmanship and service provided by Drainmen this week, when parts of the drainage system at my house had to be replaced. They were on time, polite, kept me informed, and left the property clean and tidy despite the huge upheaval in the garden. I recommend Drainmen and its very able employees.
With kind regards and thanks
Just a word of thanks and appreciation for a job well done. Please also convey my thanks and gratitude to the team.
I would like to congratulate Drainmen for a task well done at my home on 3/11/2011 to unblock a complicated drainage system. I was especially impressed by the professionalism and the ability to think out of the box to resolve the problems that had to be confronted. I will no-doubt recommend your company in future !
One of your Drainmen technicians attended to a blocked drain at our house yesterday. My wife was very impressed with the work done and professionalism.
Thanks and best wishes ”

Please pass on our appreciation of how professional Drainmen are – keeping us informed of arrival times, updates, etc as well as solving the problem. This is a rare thing in the Western Cape! You will be our first contact with any such problems in the future and we’ll recommend you to friends and neighbours.
“Good morning David
My name is Bertie Posniak and I am the chairman of the body corporate for ‘The Avenues’ in Sea Point. I just wished to thank you and your staff for the absolutely incredible service we have received from your staff and your organisation.
They have gone beyond the norm to try and assist us in our problem. I have never experienced such service in any field before.
My most grateful thanks to all at Drainmen.
I would just like to say a great big thank you to Ellen for her great service and wonderful manner on the phone on Friday regarding a very tough situation. Her service was beyond what I expected and she phoned back every time she said she would. This is what I call expert service. I will recommend people to use Drainmen in the future, just because of the service I got from Ellen. Well Done Ellen, keep up the great work.
