Metro Rod Aberdeen are on call 24/7 throughout the year, so when you find yourself faced with an emergency that needs fixing, whether its a leaky pipe or burst waste drain we are the ones to call. We offer a range of drain repairs, with our techniques and equipment all vetted for by the Water Research Centre (WRC), so you know you’re getting the best service. 

More often than not, people worry when it comes to drain repairs, believing that the only way to fix a broken underground drain is through digging down and excavating. Obviously this would cause a lot of disruption to your property, is time consuming and can be quite expensive, which is why Metro Rod Aberdeen are pleased to say that most of our drain repairs are done with ‘no-dig’ and ‘trenchless’ methods. By using various lining techniques we are able to provide a reliable solution and repair the problem. 

What causes damage to drains?

  • Root related damage, roots can grow into the tiny cracks in our drains and pipes where they then feed on the nutrients and get bigger, turning the tiny cracks into much bigger, more noticeable cracks.
  • Sun damage can cause cracks in our outside pipes, the UV rays from the sun can cause the plastic pipes to become brittle making them more likely to crack and then leak.
  • Freezing and thawing is a problem for pipes and drains – when water freezes in the pipes it will expand and can rupture the pipe, the problem then comes when the ice starts to thaw and can then cause major leaking and flooding.

Signs you may need a repair

  • Low water pressure could indicate either a blocked drain/pipe or in some cases there may a leak or broken pipe.
  • Increased water bills but no increase in usage may indicate a leak – you can test this by taking a water meter reading, not using any water for a couple of hours and re-checking the meter to see if its changed during this time.
  • Unpleasant odours lingering around your property are often the first sign that something is wrong with your drains, you may have a blocked drain or there’s a leak 

If you are experiencing any of these signs it’s a good idea to have a professional take a look for you, as any drain damage that is left for too long will only get worse. Metro Rod are fully qualified to carry out any drain repairs for, you can find out more using the contact information below.
