Metro Rod have noticed that Christmas is coming to Southport…and we’re excited!


Metro Rod work on a daily basis in Southport, unblocking drains, cutting roots out of drains, unblocking gullies and manholes and of course unblocking toilets!  As our engineers have been travelling around the local area recently though they have noted that Christmas definitely looks like it has hit the area!


The Visit Southport Twitter Page  is reporting of local cafes selling delights such as ‘Orange Hot Chocolate topped with Marshmallows’ and ‘Hazelnut Lattes’ – delicious!  The Christmas light switch on was held recently which saw a beautiful Christmas tree, lit up with over 20,000 lights switched on in the Southport Town Hall Gardens.  People can actually go inside the tree to view the ‘amazing’ light shows. The lights were switched on by S Club, 911 and Livin’ Joy – what a blast from the past!  Over 9000 people attended the switch on.

In the next week an outdoor Ice Rink will also be opened with Christmas chalets placed around the edge and according to Southport BID there are two full days of festive street entertainment planned for the town, on the 8th and 15th of December.




All these extra visitors to Southport will mean extra pressure and strain on the drains of the town – this is where Metro Rod comes in!  As local contractors in the town we are proud that we have engineers who live in Southport, so we know the area well.  Businesses locally know that if they call us they will get a professional and honest service – day and night.


One of our engineers who has lived in Southport all of his life (but wanted to remain nameless!) said

“I love working in Southport, it’s close to home and I get pride in knowing when I have helped my local community out.  No one wants drainage problems and I am always made up when I know that I have carried out a job, be it a domestic job on a blocked toilet to a gutter clean on a school, I like helping out the people in my community and through the work that I do through Metro Rod I know that I do this”

Our Business Development Manager, Jenny, agrees.  She said

“Southport is a beautiful town and we are proud to work there. Doing this job I know that drainage problems can be absolutely catastrophic to businesses and I love that Metro Rod promise a good, quick service and deliver on this.  We attend to emergency jobs usually within just 2 hours of the call for help, usually quicker, and our vans come equipped to deal with the majority of emergencies on a first time fix, causing minimum disruption to businesses, usually at their busiest times”.


So, if you run a business in Southport, be it a food business, restaurant, pub, ANYTHING that relies on having drains that are free flowing and work correctly.  If you are a householder who has had slow draining sinks for a while or general bad drainage smells; if you are a Site Manager on a school and experience flooding in the playground at times of heavy rain then you could have a drainage problem and Metro Rod are here to help.  Our engineers are fully trained, uniformed and professional at all times and are always on hand to fix any drainage problems.


Christmas is definitely on the way to Southport, Metro Rod can make drainage problems go away!
