Unblock outside drain from kitchen sink/dishwasher

"To say impressed with Happy Drains is a massive understatement. I called Thursday lunchtime and was told they'd call me back with a time/date for them to come fix problem. It was only a matter of hours and they'd arrived and unblocked my outside drain. Shaun arrived and had the situation checked and was working to clear the drain within 15 minutes. I was so impressed with how quickly he worked and how he cleaned down the dirty patio afterwards. He had drain cleared and the job completely finished in half an hour. He then gave me tips on how to keep the drains clean. Absolutely BRILLIANT"
