Garden Drainage. 10/10

“Initial enquiry handled with friendly and helpful efficiency, rapidly followed up with a site visit to view my heavily waterlogged lawn and severe pooling in the garden. Probable cause and suggested solution were explained in a clear, constructive and courteous manner. Work began a week later and was carried out professionally, with frequent updates and explanations. Results were virtually instantaneous and – so far – have been completely successful. Garden was left neat and tidy. Priced as initial estimate - no surprise problems. Would strongly recommend."

Removal of interceptor. 10/10

Drain to Road Cleared. 10/10

“Phoned at 6.25 am, spoke to a lovely lady in the office, who asked me to describe the problem, and gave me a fixed quote. The team were around by 6.45 am. Job completed before 7.15! Really nice pair of guys who turned up. Fixed and showed me the problem, and how to avoid it in the future. Would recommend this company."

Mr. Edmonds, Ferndown, Dorset, 13/03/2018

Drainage System Installed in Garden. 10/10

“I had a problem with surface water runoff regularly flooding my garden. DPDS dug three drainage channels under the lawn and these now take excess water to a sump from where it is pumped out into the main drains. The work was done very quickly and the turf was replaced so that it is now almost impossible to see where the work was done. After a month of rain, snow, sleet and hail there has been no flooding and the system that DPDS installed is doing exactly what they promised. I couldn't be more pleased."

Mrs. Yorke, Poole, Dorset, 06/02/2018

Removal of interceptor drain and fitting of new drain. 10/10

“The work was completed satisfactory and without any problems. A very professional job thank you."

Fit Surface Water Drains, a tank and pump to prevent further flooding in the garden. 10/10

“Over the last few years, the garden had become a swamp that Shrek and Fiona would love. Darren and Dave had to battle through heavy rain, hailstones and high winds. The garden fought them every inch of the way with clay, rubble and tree roots to be dug out and removed. Paving slaps to removed cleaned and replaced. It was a titanic battle, however the winner of this contest goes to ...  Pause Big Drum Roll... DPDS.  Congratulations you guys and the very courteous Romy. Somehow I don't think you will forget this job in hurry The swamp has gone the land is drying out.  Well Done."

Mrs. Telfer-Roberts, Christchurch, Dorset, 25/01/2018

Full Drain Survey. 10/10

“I would recommend Dorset Property and Drainage Solutions. Romy (admin) was friendly and efficient and booked the job at short notice. The guys were friendly and knowledgeable, explaining and showing me the issues. For £145 I identified a significant problem with the sewers at a property I am hoping to purchase. I am currently negotiating a reduction and will employ Dorset Property and Drainage Solutions to undertake the works if the sale completes. Thank you."

Mr. Dearing, Poole, 24/01/2018

Drain Installation Works. 10/10

“We asked DPDS for a quotation because of their Checkatrade rating. We chose them as their proposal was clear, concise and reasonably priced.

Highly recommended."
