We are fully committed to servicing all customers in the current circumstances. Our engineers are working hard 24/7 to support all domestic and commercial customers.

Here at Metro Rod Liverpool we pride ourselves on our great, fast drainage service.

Blocked toilets? Overflowing gutters? Bad smells? Slow draining sink?  Metro Rod can help!  24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year (yes, even Christmas day!) our engineers are on standby and our vans are ready to attend to any problems with their drains that our customers may have at their homes or businesses.

One area that we have been seeing an influx in calls recently is to St Helens.  Home of the magnificent Saints RFC, and the iconic Dream sculpture, St Helens is an exciting place to be!  The past few weeks we have had call outs to local schools, colleges, hotels and to domestic properties for a variety of reasons.  However, when it comes to drainage, Metro Rod are the experts and we have the solution to every drainage problem – large or small, internal or external, above or below ground.


After carrying out pre-planned maintenance works at a school in St Helens over the summer we had a call out this week, as they had a block of toilets that had blocked up and flooded over.  We attended site, as we knew we had serviced these toilets well and that there should be no problems (school were aware of this also, as we had provided photographic and video evidence to them!).  We attended site, out of hours, as requested and found that a huge amount of hand towels and a cardboard toilet roll holder had been forced down the toilet, causing a blockage.  As the blockage was substantial, site’s efforts to clear it hadn’t worked, unfortunately for them.  We then cleared it with our equipment and provided evidence to site of the blockage and causes.  This site had tried to prepare their drains for the new term, however, any amount of planning ahead and preparation cannot account for misuse and abuse!

It’s not just the schools…

We have worked recently on building sites in St Helens, providing camera surveys to ensure that the drains are clean and clear before handover to the client.  We have also been called out to a leisure facility, whose kitchen drains were running really slowly, diagnosed as a build up of fat and grease in the lines.

Phil Schofield, operations manager of Metro Rod Liverpool said “it’s crazy how many jobs we have been asked to attend in St Helens recently, it’s like the light has just come on and people have just started to realise how good our service is!”  And Phil is right!  Metro Rod Liverpool pride ourselves on our quick responses (we aim to attend a site within just 2 hours of the call for help, day or night), we come equipped with the latest equipment to ensure that we can always aim for a first time fix, our engineers are professional, well presented, clean and fully trained.  They also have an enhanced DBS check too, just for our customer’s peace of mind!

If you live in St Helens or indeed any other of our operational areas, Liverpool, Warrington, Southport, Skelmersdale, Runcorn or Widnes, and need a drainage professional, day or night please bear Metro Rod in mind.
