*Normal blockage applies - access must be available, where digging of manholes is required, extra charge may be applied. If pipes are damaged or an obstruction that is not deemed part of a normal blockage, i.e. rods stuck in drain, solid obstruction that is not found in a drain, toys, or any object that is not normally found in drains and clearance is/ is not possible, an extra charge will be made for time spent working on your drain.
*Terms apply - no call out charge is applied where the fault is not with the customer. A call out charge may be applied when there is no access at which the customer has not informed Kernow Drains. If the pipe is damaged or broken a charge may be applied for works undertaken. We will not add any call out charges to our rate for clearances, however, if our engineer does arrive and is no longer needed and no cancellation has been made, a call out charge will be made.
* 2 Week guarantee relates to blockages that re occur within 14 days through no fault of your own. This ensures our engineers are doing their job right the first time. We will not charge for blockages within the 14 days but will make a charge if wet wipes or any objects are in the blockage that is not natural waste matter.
* Fixed price applies to single line drains. Shared drain systems will be charged extra. Fixed price is between the hours of 9am - 5pm.
Out of hours will incur an extra GBP15.00
