First Choice Drainage Solutions offers the combined services of drainage consultants and plumbers. Located in Harlow, we cover all London areas including Bayswater (Central London), Clerkenwell (Central and North London), Hackney (East Central and East London) and Hampstead (North West London). We have qualified Gas Safe personnel available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to deal with unexpected leaks, burst pipes and blocked drains.
We’re different to other plumbers in London because we also consult for our valued customers and clients. Our team uses innovative equipment to conduct CCTV drain surveys and offers rapid solutions for all underground issues at affordable rates. This includes the installation of drain linings, which repairs damaged pipework without heavy trenching work.
We even handle kitchen and bathroom refurbishments as a single and reliable contractor.
Established in 2007, First Choice Drainage Solutions is an independent and medium-sized company with more than 150 years of combined experience. We meet the needs of home and business owners across all parts of North, South, West and East London including the Bayswater, Clerkenwell, Hackney and Hampstead areas. Our professional team specialises in the delivery of responsive solutions whenever leaks, burst pipes and blocked drains occur.
We also deal with all other common plumbing and drainage issues.
First Choice Drainage Solutions has 15 plumbers and drainage consultants in its team, and trades with employers and public liability insurance. Because we go beyond the services of a traditional plumber by performing CCTV drain surveys and drain lining installations, we attract a wider range of customers and clients from inside London and the Home Counties.
Our company has a top-rated profile on the TrustATrader website complete with glowing reviews from service users across the whole of London. We’ve previously resolved drainage issues for a diverse client base using investigative CCTV drain survey equipment, enabling our personnel to clear blocked drains or to recommend a new drain lining installation.
We’ve previously worked for AMS Emersions, the German Embassy and prestigious names from the commercial sector including Ping Pong and Drake & Morgan. First Choice Drainage Solutions has also provided services for thousands of satisfied homeowners in Bayswater, Clerkenwell, Hackney, Hampstead, East London and all locations around the capital.
Our company has accreditation with Constructionline, with the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS), with the National Association of Drainage Contractors 768 (NADC) and with the Water Jetting Association. All plumbers have Gas Safe registration and our drainage consultants have approval from the SafeContractor assessment scheme.
Plumbing and Installation Services
Our professional team of plumbers fits a wide range of fixtures and appliances for use in kitchens and bathrooms including SaniFlo macerators, sinks, taps, toilets, dishwashers, refrigerators with ice dispensers and garbage disposal units. Everything falls under the scrutiny of qualified Gas Safe personnel who comply with current safe working practices.
Our drainage consultants offer advice on how to deal with plumbing requirements during property renovations and refurbishments. Their knowledge ensures safe and secure system connections in kitchen and bathrooms. If a plumber needs to reroute pipework to different parts of the property, our drainage consultants include the required work in the quotation.
Repairs and Replacements
If you own a property or run a business in Bayswater, Clerkenwell, Hackney, Hampstead or any North, South, West or East London location, we’re here to help with a responsive repair and replacement service that covers leaking or burst pipework, issues with blocked drains, baths, sinks or toilets, fitting or fixture replacements and the installation of drain linings.
Our drainage consultants use CCTV drain surveys to resolve issues with blocked drains when traditional rodding or jet-washing techniques fail to clear the obstruction. Occasionally, we encounter defects in the pipework and look for a more affordable remedy if possible. Often, a polyester resin-based felt drain lining installation prevents leaks and further deterioration.
24/7 Emergency Services
Like all good drainage consultants and plumbers in the London area, we have same-day and 24-hour emergency services our domestic customers and commercial clients can rely on. First Choice Drainage Solutions has established a successful reputation in many different London areas over the past 10 years by dealing with plumbing and draining issues quickly.

“Excellent. Sean and Conner did a great job They also turned up on time did the job on time and left everything clean and tidy. Very professional.”
– Customer in London 17 January 2018
Over flowing manhole drain in front garden.
“Answered the phone in 3 rings (on a Saturday), promised to call back once he'd spoken to the engineer - which he did within about 5 mins, told me the engineer would be there in about 2 hours time - he was there in 90mins. The two engineers were there for an hour and a half, charged me plus VAT, fixed the problem and hosed the lawn down where the drain had flooded to clear up the front garden. Engineers were very pleasant, courteous, gave some good advice and left everything how they found it (better in fact if you consider the lawn). Would recommend.”

I had a leak into my kitchen from pipes above
“I was so pleased with this work. The day I called about our leak the company sent 2 men out to assess it. The men arrived exactly on time, both for the initial consultation and on the day they carried out the work (which was only 3 days later). They were very nice to deal with, friendly and clear. I really liked that they took before and after pictures so that we can se what the problem was. The leak has been fixed (and very helpfully guaranteed for one year). The paperwork explains the problem and solution in detail. I would definitely recommend this company and use them again.”

“Called out to clear slow draining toilet bowl, they found that the problem was outside my property boundary and advised me to contact the local sewage authority. No charge made, as they had been unable to resolve the problem themselves.”

Repairs to drainage caused by tree egress.
“Ian and Gary turned up on time and worked to complete the work in one day as agreed. The price was competitive and they were knowledgeable about the work being undertaken. They were also courteous in the way they engaged with us. Highly recommended.”

"I called these guys as i needed someone to deal with an ongoing problem with blocked toilets, Which entailed removing a waste pipe and renewing it with a new one, removing a shower and second toilet and making the floor good and boxed in the pipes. Sean and Conner did an excellent job. They were really nice to deal with and did the job on time and left the place nice and tidy too. Would definitely recommend them."

– Gail Melvill 15th January 2018
"I can't recommend First Choice drainage solutions highly enough. I had an emergency drainage problem in my flat creating difficulties for my tenants and James arranged for a plumber to visit the same day (Sunday), resolve the issue and all for a very fair price - this was all done within an hour or so of me calling. James was polite, efficient and hugely professional and I would definitely use his company again."
– Jennifer Watson 1st October 2017
