It isn’t always easy to make the right choice of company for boiler repairs or the clearance of blocked drains, particularly when there are so many different plumbers and drainage companies in Gravesend to choose from. What is it that customers should be looking for, and how do they go about finding a suitable service provider?
Look for Industry Affiliation and Approvals
Good plumbers and gas engineers are always Gas Safe registered. This should be an absolute minimum requirement for any plumbing and drainage company working at your Gravesend property, particularly if you are looking for key services such as boiler repairs and replacements, central heating work or the installation of related gas appliances.
However, we go one step further than our competitors by being British Safety Council members, Construction Line members and assured Atrius vendors. Defluo are also members of CHAS, the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment.
Maintain Safety Standards
While our work in Gravesend can cover anything from the unblocking of blocked drains to a full bathroom installation, it’s important that strict safety standards are upheld at all times. Defluo will never fob you off with inadequate repair work that compromises the safety of you, your family or your employees. On boiler repairs, for example, we’ll only carry out the required work if it’s safe and economical to do so.
Most plumbers in Gravesend work to similar standards as ourselves thanks to their Gas Safe registration. We go the extra mile by meeting the standards set by other leading industry bodies. Defluo Plumbing & Drainage have a fine and exemplary safety record.
Use of Modern Plumbing and Drainage Techniques
If a company turns up at your Gravesend home or business with nothing other than rods to do the job, they may not always be able to assist you in clearing blocked drains. Our plumbers and drainage technicians work from a fully equipped van fleet and all vehicles carry high-pressure jet washing equipment that reaches further into your pipe work.
If this method doesn’t work, we can survey the drainage system using CCTV technology. This allows us to identify larger problems at your Gravesend property, such as tree root or subsidence damage, and to recommend a suitable course of repair.

Word-of-mouth reputation is vital for any plumbing and drainage company. Defluo have an unrivalled reputation in the Gravesend area, having already successfully completed a huge number of emergency plumbing jobs, boiler repairs and drainage work in the past. We’re a fully insured company that prides itself on results.
Customers in Gravesend also have the reassurance of knowing we unconditionally guarantee our services, whether we are being used to clear blocked drains on an emergency basis or undertaking work under a planned maintenance contract agreement.
