DO YOU KNOW WHEN IT IS TIME FOR A DRAIN REPAIR? – METRO ROD MID WALES

Damage to drains can often get worse if they are left unnoticed for a prolonged period of time so it’s necessary to know the signs.

Signs You 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

What Causes Drain Damage?

  • 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.
  • Drains are not indestructible, so over time they will be subjected to normal wear and tear which can result in faults that need repairing. 

We know that when people think of a drain repair they’ll tend to think it will require digging down to reach it. But with Metro Rod’s no-dig and trenchless repairs we are able to repair your drain without causing too much disruption to your property.
