Metro Rod Mid Lancs Feeling Proud
16th November 2017 - in Blackburn, Blackpool, Bolton, Preston, Wigan
After receiving an emergency call out to a local service station, Steve Hodgson and Tom Woodcock were faced with a full site foul blockage, causing internal flooding.
As the events unfolded it became apparent that site would have to close due to the disruption of the flooding unless Metro Rod could come up with a solution, this was to utilise the combination tanker to over pump from an external manhole chamber and carry out a full internal foul flooding clean, this kept the service station operational while all blockage issues were cleared. Our engineers realised this was going to be more of a team effort, due to the unusual cause of the blockage, which was only made apparent once the tanker had cleared the excess foul/flood water, see the bizarre photograph below. Our Operations Manager, Sean Phelan and Senior Engineer, Mick Hodgson were also there to lend a helping hand.
After a long hard days graft in our unpredictable winter weather, the team rectified the issues and completely unblocked the site leaving it free flowing.
We would just like to show our appreciation and say a big well done to our lads for their camaraderie and team work!!
