Metro Rod get to the root of any drainage issue  in London


When your business, or household, drainage system is failing to be as free-flowing and effective as it should be there can be many possible causes. This is particularly so here in London where internal pipework and external drains can be subject to very heavy usage.

At Metro Rod our high pressure water jetting and electro-mechanical cleaning equipment will clear blockages caused , typically, by things such as :-


However sometimes problems can arise from structural defects in the drainage system, where a pipe has suffered damage from a physical cause such as ground subsidence, rodents or, as pictured above, plant and tree roots entering underground drains !

Tree roots will enter drain pipes in "search" of water and will exploit any minor crack to do so. This invasion with quickly result in widened cracks in the pipe and can ultimately block the drainage system . Take a look at this root removed from a drain by Metro Rod Central London last month !!
