Dan saved us over €5000 + more!
Dan inspected 2 houses for us, we were ready to buy. However, in both cases, he found issues with the pipework. Underground leaks we would never have discovered until it was too late and damage had been done to the foundations and structure of the house. He saved us over €5000 immediately and a lot more in the long run! I would recommend a drain test for everybody buying a house, it is critical information. Dan did a fantastic job explaining exactly what the issues were, his reports were easy to understand & ready the very next day! 5 STAR SERVICE.
Excellent service & Quick To Respond'Excellent service provided by IDT. They were very quick to respond to my request, extremely professional, took the time to explain things and answer all of my questions. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
Far More Thorough Than His Competitors ...I’ve used Dan’s services on more than one occasion and on more than one home. I’ve also used his competitors and it has to be said; Dan’s level of thoroughness is second to none. THERE IS NO COMPARISON! Overall across the board, Dam is better than anyone I’ve seen in this industry.
Thorough, Professional & Courteous!Thanks for the report Dan. You were really great to get it done so quickly. I really appreciate that.

What makes us different?
Unlike other drain testing companies Independent Drain Testing is ‘Independent’. Some drain companies advertise that they carry out free drains tests; however such companies may have vested interests in the results. It is not uncommon for these companies to carry out the repair works themselves or have links with a company that will do the repair work. When choosing our services here at Independent Drains Testing you are assured that you are getting a completely Independent Drain Test.
Why consider a Drain Test?
Over time drains and sewers begin to deteriorate. They can suffer from all types of problems such as:
- Ground movement
- Mis-aligned drains
- Tree root invasion
- Silt build-up
- Scale and grime deposits
Long-term implications …
If water is escaping from defective / leaking drains, it can cause significant damage. If this is left undetected, it can weaken the bearing capacity of the ground over time and can cause subsidence if close to the foundations of your home!
