When drains are damaged and in need of a repair you’ll want to know all your options to make sure you’re getting the best of the best.

Metro Rod Doctor1

Cracked and broken drains can be a serious problem that may result in bad smells, property damage as well as being quite unhygienic. We know at Metro Rod Stoke that damage to drains can be daunting when you don’t know what is wrong or how to go about fixing it. We want to make your life a little easier by covering the basics of our drain repairs and what some of the signs are that may indicate you need a repair.

Do you need a drain repair? 

Cracked and damaged drains can be caused by a number of things such as tree roots, underground movement, changes in the weather and natural corrosion. Common signs that you may need a repair include 

  • Damp seeping through your walls and ceilings
  • Foul smells
  • Increased water bills

However not all drains in need of a repair will show these signs and sometimes the only way to figure out what is wrong is through a drain inspection.

How can we help?

Metro Rod Stoke are able to carry out this drain inspection for you via on of our CCTV Drain Surveys which you can find out more about here. If upon inspection we find you do need a drain repair then we will have a full and accurate picture of the problem so that an engineer can decide the best way to fix it.

Trenchless Repairs

Most of the time we will be able to repair you drain with our trenchless, no-dig technology repairs. This will save a lot of time and minimise disruption to your property as we wont have to dig down to reach the drain that needs repairing. Instead we can use various lining techniques to repair the drain which is both cost effective and reliable.

However, while we will always try to minimise disruption where possible, there are occasions when the only option is to create a trench and dig down to reach the drain. While this is more time-consuming and potentially costly it will be far better than allowing the drain to remain damaged and potentially cause more serious problems. So, in these instances you shouldn’t worry as all our engineers are trained and equipped to carry out the work necessary to get your drains repaired and back up and running.
