We want you to be happy with the service you receive and we want you to have the ability to speak to us as and when you need to regarding a recurring issue or any new issues. Businesses should be built on good customer relations, national companies like Dyno and Local Heroes won't remember you each time they visit and won't already know which plants you don't ever want digging up or where you don't want the van leaving tyre marks in the grass. Local businesses provide that local touch and Drainage and Groundworks Services Limited is a leading provider of drainage services in Gateshead. Support your local business while saving money.

On average our prices are more than half of the price Dyno or Local Heroes would charge.

Our main services.

Blocked drain, sink or toilet in Gateshead?

One of our most common services and one we receive many call outs for. Perhaps water is not draining away in toilets and sinks within your home or you may have a drain outside that is not draining away rainwater or household water.

Blocked Drain, Sink or Toilet

Gateshead CCTV drain inspection.

It can be very frustrating knowing that you have a blockage in one of your drains but not knowing where it is. We don't recommend digging up drainage for no reason as this is costly and can be upsetting. Therefore, any blockages that are not apparent we are able to investigate using a CCTV camera which we feed into the drain and use to monitor where the blockage is and evaluate the best way to remove it.

CCTV Drain Inspection

High pressure drain jetting in Gateshead.

Noticed a bad smell coming from your drains or a build up of grime? With our high pressure water jet we can clean and clear drains in minutes leaving them tidy and less smelly. Pouring a bucket of hot water and bleach doesn't cut through the dirt and within days the smell will be back. Give us a call and we will blast away the grime, along with any bad smell.

High Pressure Drain Jetting

Private & commercial services in Gateshead.

At DGS we work with home owners, landlords and tenants as well as commercial business who require our services. From that small blocked drain to full drainage route cutting and installation.

Private & Commercial Services

DGS Limited frequently asked questions.

Get answers to our most frequently asked questions.

CCTV drain inspection has been made possible using technology that allows us to pass a waterproof, high definition camera, through a drain pipe to investigate the causes of any drainage problems. We have invested in the latest camera on the market to ensure we are able to fully diagnose drainage problems and provide you, our customers, with the best guidance and to provide accurate quotations. The use of the camera means we don't need to dig anywhere to investigate, which would cause distress to you. The camera is very small and can be passed through the smallest of pipes making it the best solution for inspecting drains.

More times than not a blockage can be cleared using a plunger to dislodge the blockage in the drain. Without getting scientific, the pressure caused by the plunger will force the blockage out - problem solved.

However, this is not always possible, either the drain is too big for a plunger or the pressure simply isn't flushing the blockage through. In this instance, a rod can be used. The rod is specially designed to fit through the drain and has a fitting on the end to grab the blockage and pull it through. This method of removal is best for full drain clearance and will leave your drains flowing and flushing as they should.

The simple answer is no.

All of the pipes and drains located within the boundaries of your property are yours to maintain. The company responsible for your water supply and waste do not have any obligation to repair any problems you are having with pipes or drainage. With regard to supply pipes, any problems that occur from your stop valve inwards (the supply pipe) are your responsibility. Any drains that carry waste away from your property are also your responsibility.

Some water companies will offer repair services but they are often expensive and charge a call out fee.

DGS Limited came to my home one morning when I woke to find the kitchen had a really bad smell and each time I ran the tap the smell got worse. They came out within the hour and cleared my drain outside which cleared up the problem straight away. There was no call out fee just labour to clear the blockage. Well recommended.

Laura Johnson

Very polite and friendly. Used the camera to illustrate the problems and made recommendations. Not at all pushy. All repairs carried out and again used the camera to show us what they had done. Left everywhere clean and tidy. Would recommend to anyone looking for a blocked drain company in Gateshead.


Called with a blockage, arrived within 10 minutes, blockage cleared immediately. Friendly, helpful and service with a smile. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone.

Helen Fletcher

Splendid work from the team at DGS. I couldn't clear a blockage in our bathroom which seemed to be somewhere in the waste pipe. It took DGS 35 minutes to get someone to my home and I was charged nothing for the call out and just £34 for their time to remove the blockage. Found at the top of Google when looking for a Gateshead drainage expert, and would definitely recommend.

Harold Williams

Thanks lads. Washing machine was not draining water away through the pipe leading outside. Took them 10 minutes to fix the issue and saved me hundreds as I was about to buy a new washer.

Lewis Evans

I contacted DGS as they were top of Google and had a range of very good reviews. We were extending our house and needed to route new drainage for a bathroom. I only wanted them to fit the waste system for the bathroom but they were able to provide services for the complete plumbing too. Looks amazing now it is all done. Thanks for your hard work.

Alan Harvey

Very pleased with our new patio and decking.

Jim Hudson

Really grateful for coming to see us today. I nearly clicked on the first over priced website I came to but so glad I looked around. I would highly recommend DGS Limited for their call out time, workmanship and value for money.

Rebecca Holmes

Outstanding groundworks team providing an exceptional service. Planning, communication and hands on labour were all second to none. We contracted DGS to plan and implement a private road which they did with professionalism, from drawings to finish, the work was great.

Billy Pearce

10 out of 10 - brilliant work thanks.


Great job today thank you. Blocked sink drain which was causing a really bad smell in the house. Unblocked and flushing within an hour. Only cost us £44 which was much cheaper than anyone else online or in Gateshead.


Good service from DGS, unblocked my sink, great price would use again.


I called DGS this morning when we woke up to find the garden under water after last nights heavy rain. It wasn't flowing down the drain and despite my husband attempting to get his hand down there he couldn't clear the blockage. The gents at DGS came out within the hour to investigate, they investigated the problem and removed all of the leaves that were clogging the drain. The service was fast, reliable, friendly and much cheaper than other firms I had called in Gateshead who couldn't visit until the next day. Thank you.
