Welcome to Draincure 

Draincure was founded in 1983 by Ken Twydell, a qualified Environmental Health Officer who had left the cosy world of local government to become a partner in a small building firm. 
Draincure is a family company dealing with drains and just drains in South Devon, covering the areas surrounding Torbay and Exeter. It is still run by Ken; now aided his son James and long term employee Adam. 
 
Although a small company, we have invested heavily in CCTV cameras to survey and trace drains, drain jetting and drain clearing machines and hi-tech drain lining equipment.
