Our drains would tell the story of our family, how my dad, Allan Johnson started this business in the 1970s, and how he worked all over London, Essex and Kent. He served residents of many London boroughs and the Home counties, and during that time he supported many small business owners, local authorities and other organisations.

Allan grew his business and then helped train his son, Steven (me). Together we worked hard on making Johnson Drainage a family business that promoted fair pricing and honesty in the workplace. 15 years ago retirement beckoned Allan, and I took over maintaining the firm’s excellent reputation and work ethic.

Johnson’s Drainage has gone from strength to strength, I’ve gained NVQ levels 2 and 3 in Plumbing, gained approval from Barking and Dagenham Trading Standards and we pride ourselves on providing excellent service that’s good value for money.

So, If you have a drainage problem you’ll want to call out Johnson Drainage. They’re not faceless employees of a big company, but two generations of local, hardworking men who get their hands dirty to get your drains sorted.

Don’t just take our word for it though… read all the things that people say about Johnson Drainage here:

“A prompt and quick service. I would recommend Johnson Drainage Services to  anyone.”

Islington Council, W Lewis.

“Johnson Drainage Services arrived quite quickly after we called them out.  They provided a very speedy and efficient services.  Their reporting back process was really good and we kept informed about the cause and progress ao the blockage.  This was much appreciated and extremely gratifying.

Many of our “clients”have reported back on their courtesy, efficiency and speed. They have also remararked on respect, consideration and tidiness that the firlundertakes when carrying out their work. Johnson Drainage Services always takes great care regarding the building and its inhaditants.

In these pressing times, their reasonable pricing has also been pleasing. Many firms will send two, or even three operatives which increases the cost of the work. This cannot be said of Johnson Drainage Services.”

“Steven was helpful and informative besides being efficient.”

From the which local website

It was Christmas eve and unfortunately I again had blocked drains. Caused by a neighbour’s carer putting wipes down her toilet. We have a shared drain. I contacted Steven and he arrived within a few hours and sorted out the blocked drains. I am full of praise for him as he is a genuine tradsman – there are not many about. Highly recommended. Thanks again Steven.


I chose Steven solely on his very good reviews.
I was not disappointed. He was very efficient and managed to completely solve tne problems I was having with my drains. The price he quoted on the phone was the price he charged which I thought was reasonable. I have no hesitation in recommending this trader.


I phoned Steven because of the reviews I’d read about his service and professionalism and was not disappointed. When I phoned Steven he said he could make it the same day after going to another job and gave me an estimated time, he actually made it to us a fair bit earlier which was a good start. Using a miniature camera he soon discovered the cause that had been creating the problem with the backing up of waste water in the toilet.He made the repair using new stock from the van and all is now working as it should and the cost worked out less than he quoted over the phone. Would thoroughly recommend Steven to anyone who has drainage problems and we would certainly use him again (although I hope we never have to!).

Steven cleared block drain for me the very next day I emailed him. Punctual, professional and reasonably price, does exactly what he says on the side of his van and I would recommend his services to anyone in a similar position.

Stephen cleared out the drain problem, and although I had agreed to pay for a CCTV camera to be passed down the pipe he managed to show me that it wasn’t necessary and therefore saved me the extra cash.

Steven jetted out our drains yesterday at 9pm for his daytime prices. I’d called him at 4pm about a non-urgent problem and he offered to call by later rather than the day after. I was really impressed by his service and pricing. Excellent!

Can’t speak highly enough of Steven – called at 10:30am, came round at midday and quickly diagnosed a problem that two other plumbing/drainage companies hadn’t dealt with. Didn’t take long to fix, reasonable price, all in all just really happy with the service!

A quick, efficient service and value for money. I am happy to recommend the company.

Steve fitted us in the next day after an evening call and unblocked our drain very quickly – totally quick efficient and reasonable price. Thank you!
