About

My name is James Craig Managing Director of Craig Construction, Clear Drains Services and Clear Services, I graduated from Demontfort University in Leicester in 2001 with a degree in Construction Technology and Management. I then worked as a project engineer on various large scale contracts in the UK before moving back to Isle of Man to continue as an engineer.

In recent years I have worked in civil engineering specialising in drainage. In that time I recognised a need on the Island for Professional drainage services and consultancy aimed at domestic and commercial properties.

Clear Drain Services is now a well established drainage company on the Island with a large continuing client base from domestic, commercial and government clients as well as working with various insurance companies. We pride ourselves on customer service and don’t charge for advice.

We offer a 24/7 call out service for all drainage issues on the Isle of Man, and will strive to be with you within 24 hours. We are now approved installers of Premier Tech Aqua septic tanks. Premier Tech Aqua offer high quality septic tanks at competitive prices with low ongoing maintenance. This keeps the ongoing costs to a minimum for the owner.

We will continue to offer friendly reliable and profession drainage services to the Isle of Man. Give me a call for free friendly advice and information on any drainage related issues you may have and we will be happy to help.

Very professional service

Major issue with sewage backing up to top of manhole. It was cleared, flushed and investigated with camera to locate cause.

Permit sort and pavement dug out to replace broken pipe work, and added a more convenient inspection hatch in case of future problems.

Very professional service.

A stress free, professional service !!

A BIG thank you to Clear Drain Services for the excellent job they did replacing the soakaway to our septic tank, earlier this week.

The guys were super fast, highly efficient, very professional and really friendly. There was absolutely no inconvenience to ourselves - we went to work in the morning and by the time we got home, all the work was completed and we were up and running again !!

The garden looks even better now than it did before they came !! Thank you for a stress free, professional service !!'

Really happy

Really happy with how these blokes cleared our grease trap.

They came when they said they would!

Did the job well and cleaned up afterwards and sent us the bill. Not asking for cash now, for a half done job, what a nice change.

Thanks.

Job was done quick as a flash and built to last

We have a number of inspection covers at the back of the house; most of them are domestic quality. Wear and tear over the years, including cars reversing over them had eventually cracked the covers and crumbled the surrounding concrete - Clear Drain Services removed the old cover, reconstructed the surrounding area and fitted a D400 quality road inspection cover.

Extremely happy with the results - the job was done quick as a flash and built to last.

One happy customer!
