Metro Rod were contacted by Leeds Magistrates Court to sort a severe water leak that was situated on the 1st floor in the judges chamber. Many companies had been called out, but unfortunately couldn't identify where the leak was coming from.

Our engineers at Metro Rod have the knowledge and expertise to provide drain repair and plumbing solutions to any given situation, and wanted to get to the bottom of the problem. After careful monitoring and investigation, our engineers spotted a slight crack in the toilet cistern that had been leaking for quite some time, causing severe water damage to the corridor, which was a great distance from the toilet itself. Therefore suggesting that the problem was coming from somewhere else. Our engineers replaced the cistern to stop the leak and the judges chambers were as good as new.

Here at Metro Rod (West Yorkshire) we have an expert team of engineers that offer thorough services in drain repair, maintenance, and plumbing services, 24/7 day and night. We are able to provide emergency assistance for water leaks, burst pipes, overflowing drains and more.

What are the techniques that we use for drain repair?

All techniques currently in use for drain repairs are approved by local Water Authorities and the Water Research Centre (WRC).

No-Dig or Trenchless  Drain Repairs;

This popular drain repair service that we offer is a “no dig” repair. As the name suggests, this repair does not require excavations and instead encompasses various lining techniques. The result is a speedy, reliable fix that won’t dent your pocket.

Metro Rod has developed and perfected the above drain repair techniques over the last 25 years and have a number of options for materials to give the most cost effective and efficient solution.

No-Dig Drain Repair options vary depending on the application, but they all involve inserting a liner into a drain which is impregnated with resin. The liner is moved into position, whether it is local or full length, and then inflated to give a water tight repair by effectively making a thin strong layer inside the existing drain. When the required cure time has elapsed, the means of inflating the repair is removed to restore the full drain function and integrity.

Localised Structural Drain Repairs (LSRs)

  • Patch Liners – This localised repair offers a cost-effective solution to fix individual defects within a drain or sewer.
  • Ambient Cured Lining – Ambient cured lining consists of the full or partial lining of sewers or drains to cover multiple defects.
  • Heat Cured Lining – Similar to Ambient cured lining; however, Heat Cured Lining is used for larger diameter pipes or where an increased resistance to chemical attack is required.
  • Excavation – Excavation is the traditional method of drain repair and replacement and a technique used for new drains, drain replacement, to rectify collapsed drains or to gain access to lining repairs.
