Lanes for Drains London offers a range of services to tackle drainage and sewage problems, such as blocked drains. Our extensive talents include everything from drain unblocking and waste management to sewer repairs, and CCTV inspections.

Whatever the time of day or night, if you have a blocked drain, simply call our dedicated team in Rainham: our fast response, drain unblock engineers will make short work of clearing the obstruction and getting your drain back in working order, with minimum disruption.

All our engineers are knowledgeable and highly trained, to provide you with a super-quick and efficient drain unblocking service. And, we equip them with the very latest cutting edge technology.

From here we also provide a complete septic tank service, especially to more rural areas of Essex, with everything from septic tank installation to septic tank emptying and ongoing maintenance. Just ask.

Rats in London

They say that you’re never more than a few feet away from a rat — especially in the city. Could there be rats in your property? If so, there’s a good chance that they’re getting in through the drainage system; we all know rats happily swim long distances in open sewer water.

And they get through the tiniest holes — just a small defect in a pipe join is enough for them to start gnawing their way in. Once in…. well, you know how that goes.

At Lanes, we already have remote CCTV cameras for checking out sewers, so we can also look for potential rat entry points and rodent activity too. Once we’ve identified a point of access we will carry out a repair to block it. Sorted.

Ask the team about surveying your drainage system for rodents.

What Our London Customers Say About Us

I just wanted to say that in the early hours of Tuesday morning two of your contractors, Seb and Glen, attended a blocked drain at our property.
They were absolutely brilliant, they identified the problem quickly and handled the emergency in a calm and professional manner.
They are a credit to your organisation.


I am sending you this mail to say thank you to Jordan and Jay for fitting the sleeve to the drain. They worked in harmony and got the job done efficiently. They also showed consideration towards the property.


Case Studies

Lanes Group Superflex Recycler tackles rag ball blockage

Lanes’ new JHL Combi Superflex 415 Recycler has shown it is more than a match for some of the biggest and most difficult blockages. The jet vac machine is the only one of its kind in the UK. In 2013, Thames Water requested that we send a team with the machine to clear a major blockage in a mains sewer in south London. The location was out of our contract area, but the TW contractors did not have the equipment needed to tackle the problem.
