“Went Out Of His Way”

7th November 2019 - in Macclesfield, Manchester

"I'd just like to say thank you to Michael Cartledge and your company.

Today, Michael came out to fix the drains in my back garden (it wasn't a pretty job), but he did it with a smile. He cleared the drains and disinfected the garden. He was lovely, chatty and very polite, and went out of his way to fix my bathroom drains too. Also, Michael informed me about a smell of gas coming from my garden so I have had the gas company out and they've found a major leak in the pipes that could have been very serious if left unnoticed.

Thank you so much, Michael, I really do appreciate it. You've literally saved mine and my 4 year old son's lives. Thank you!"

“First Class”

7th November 2019 - in Macclesfield, Manchester

"Following a major drainage incident, Metro Rod identified a critical need at the Co-operative Bank HQ in Manchester to divert waste water from the staff restaurant kitchens via a grease trap before entering the building sewage system. After dealing with the initial incident and assessing the waste volumes and limitations of the kitchen layout, their proposed solution was the GreaseShield® system.

Their estimating team advised on the power requirements and their lead engineer, Nick Broadbent carried out several pre-work surveys to ensure downstream pipework was flushed, plumbing connections matched the unit and advised on modifications required to the pot wash station to receive the new unit.

The out of hours installation was a complete success and nick was back on site the following day to train the site engineer and catering staff on the operation and daily maintenance routine.

Once again, Metro Rod Manchester's customer service has been first class."

Mr Downer

Drain care and seasonal Gutter Cleaning from Metro Rod Reading

7th November 2019 - in Reading

Drain maintenance and repair in Reading, Berkshire and the Thames Valley is usually a low-level affair with our drainage engineers typically attending to underground drainage systems accessed via manhole chambers and using high pressure water jetting equipment.

A blocked drain, blocked toilet or blocked sink in Reading, Marlow or Newbury might also involve clearing internal pipework using our electro-mechanical cleaning equipment and multi-storey buildings will often involve us clearing vertical soil stacks where build up of scale can cause problems unless there is a regular pre-planned maintenance regime in place.

All of this is perhaps what you would expect from a drainage company when it comes to drain unblocking, drain cleaning and drain maintenance. However did you know that Metro Rod Reading can also clean your site gutters ?

After all what is a gutter but an elevated storm-water drain ? Gutters form part of your site's drainage system every bit as much as the internal pipes and external gullies and drains which remove both foul and storm water from your building.

One of the attractive features of living in Berkshire and the Thames Valley is the green and pleasant environment enhanced, of course, by the presence of many trees. However trees can cause problems not only via root ingress into underground drain pipes (as our previous website article illustrated https://www.metrorod.co.uk/about-us/news/reading-drains-root-evil/) but also, in Autumn through falling leaves blocking gutters.

It’s extremely common for leaves and twigs to blow from trees onto your roof and into your gutters. The longer the leaves remain in there, the wetter they will get, and wet leaves are even harder to remove from a gutter; this can develop into mould and can soon totally block a gutter and render it ineffective in channelling water safely away from your property.

At Metro Rod Reading we can, subject to accessibility, clear gutters on buildings up to 3 storeys in height using our innovative Metro Vac technology. As shown in the above photograph this is operated from ground level with the operator having the benefit of being able to see inside the guttering as he works by virtue of a camera unit mounted on the nozzle of the Metro Vac.

Don't risk blocked gutters from Autumn leaf-fall causing you problems this winter. Simply book in your gutter-clean with us and have peace of mind.

At Metro Rod Reading we offer our customers in Reading, Slough. Maidenhead, Windsor, Ascot, Henley, Marlow, Newbury, Hungerford, Marlborough and Swindon a fully comprehensive covering all aspects of drainage works AND gutter cleaning:
