If you need help unblocking a drain then don’t worry because Metro Rod Stoke are fully equipped to provide a prompt and quality fix.

Blocked drains are a common problem for businesses and homeowners that can cause people to worry when they see the rise and overflow of water. Fortunately for you, Metro Rod are here to help 24/7, 365 days a year. We have a great team of experienced engineers who are always ready to help you solve your drainage problems. Whether it be a blocked toilet, clogged pipes or repair work we will find the most effective solution to the problem in a timely manner. 

Here are some of the basic signs you need a drain unblocked:

  • Water that takes a long time to drain away in the shower or sink
  • A strong odour coming from the pipes or drain
  • A higher level of water in the toilet after flushing 
  • A gurgling sounds coming from the drains means you may have a blockage, this sound is trapped air escaping with the flow of water
  • Toilet water overflowing or bubbling up 
  • A puddle of water near the sink, bath dishwasher etc.

If you find yourself with any of these problems, then it is best you call us as professionals, as DIY fixes can sometimes lead to greater, more serious damage. Most of the time it will be a simple fix, which are very capable to take care of, however if left for a long period of time it can become worse and more complex to solve. 

Some reasons why you find yourself with a blocked drain are:

  • Fat, Oil and Grease when poured down the sink will cool and solidify creating a ‘fatberg’ which blocks the flow of water
  • Hair build up - hair doesn’t wash down the drain as easily as you may think, and after a period of time can build up on the walls of pipes
  • Flushing wet-wipes and other insoluble toiletries and products - remember to only flush the 3 Ps (pee, poo, paper) 
  • Debris and plant roots are a common cause for blocking drains, roots can grow into pipes where they can live off the nutrients flowing through. Debris like leaves and dirt can fall into the drainage system and unblock your drains.
