When it comes to drain repairs Metro Rod Edinburgh should be your first call, as we provide good quality, long lasting repairs.

Tree Roots In Sewer Line

Metro Rod Edinburgh are on call 24 hours a day, all year round, with a team of fully qualified engineers who are ready to carry out your drain repairs. If you have an emergency and find yourself with a leaking or burst pipe, you’ll want it fixed as soon as possible to prevent damage to your property. All of our drain repair techniques are vetted by the Water Research Centre so you can be assured that you’re getting the best service and a top quality repair. 

The following problems can cause damage resulting in the need for drain repair:

  • Root related damage, roots can grow into the small cracks in pipes, where they feed on the nutrients and then grow splitting the pipe open and consequently causing leaks and blockages 
  • Freeze thawing in pipes, when water freezes in pipes it then expands putting more pressure on the pipe which can then start cracking. The frozen water when it starts to thaw will begin leaking from the ruptured pipe and in more severe cases can lead to flooding due to the excess amount of water

Signs that you may need a repair:

  • Unpleasant lingering odours are often the first sign something is wrong within your drains, it could mean theres a blockage or a pipe has burst
  • Increased water bills, but not increased usage may indicate you have a leak somewhere in your drainage system - you can check this by taking a water meter reading, making sure you don’t use any water for a couple of hours and then checking the meter again to see if it has changed, if it has you will know you have a leak. 
  • Low water pressure, could mean there’s a blockage but in more serious cases it can be a broken pipe which can lead to drain collapse 
  • Pooling water around a sink, shower, bathtub would indicate that there is a leak in your pipes
