  • The drain company came this morning and did one drain, when we explained that they were all blocked especially the one on the exit of the car park, his reply was I am only ticketed to one drain. Usually stupid action of our council. What is the point of doing one drain cost wise or other. We had to call 4 times to get that one drain cleaned.
