Blocked drains are one of the most common problems we deal with, so we are experts who can help you unblock a drain.

When it comes to needing help to unblock a drain, Metro Rod Nottingham are the ones you should call for a quick and reliable solution. Whether it’s a blocked sink, toilet or drain, we have the best equipment for the job so you can carry on with your day without any further interruptions. We offer two main solutions when it comes to unblocking a drain, which will remove even the most stubborn of blockages. 

  1. High-pressure water jetting is the preferred method we use to unblock drains as it provides a long lasting solution to the problem. We spray highly pressurised water directly at what is causing the blockage within the confines of the drainage pipe, the power of the water then breaks up the mass into smaller pieces which can then be flushed through.
  2. Electro-mechanical cleaning uses a rotating tool which is fed through the pipes and drains by one of our engineers, the tool rotates and breaks up the mass blocking the drain so that it can be pushed through clearing the pipe and drain.

Of course there are a couple of things you can try yourself to get a drain flowing again and unblock a drain. If you know what it is blocking your drain, for example, if a child’s toy was accidentally flushed down the toilet, you can try reaching in whilst wearing gloves to pull it out. However if it is too far along and you can’t reach it then do not worry as Metro Rod Nottingham will be able to sort it out for you. 

You can read about other home remedies for a blocked drain here and give them a go. 

We always believe it is better to prevent problems than respond to them, so here are a few of the most common causes of a blockage so that you can try and prevent unnecessary blocked drains. 

    • Fat, oil and grease
    • Wet-wipes
    • Cotton wool
    • Food scraps 
    • Kitchen paper towels

If you are able to avoid washing or flushing these materials down the drain you should find that your drains are flowing better and for longer with fewer problems.
