PPMs – Calling All Estates/School Maintenance Managers

7th March 2019

PPMs – Calling All Estates/School Maintenance Managers

Blocked drains, blocked sink, blocked toilet, or flooding issues can cause significant inconvenience to education premises, and in worst case scenarios, can lead to temporary closure. If you’re a Facilities or Estate Manager for any educational institutions across West Yorkshire give us a call as we are your local drainage company with 30 years expertise in unblocking drains, drain repair, PPMs and CCTV surveys.


Schools, colleges and universities throughout the education sector deal with hundreds, if not thousands of people on a daily basis and have very complex drainage requirements, and Metro Rod West Yorkshire has a vast amount of experience and expertise in dealing with this. We can offer a vast amount of service from pre-planned maintenance (PPMs) to unblocking drains and drain repair.


Metro Rod West Yorkshire can offer you:

  • A 24/7 Service
  • DBS Checked Engineers
  • Health and Safety Accreditations
  • Dedicated Sales Manager
  • Emergency Cover
  • Bespoke Pre-Planned Maintenance Packages (PPMs)
  • Working out of School Hours
  • Working During School Holidays


To avoid the inconvenience of blocked drains, a blocked toilet, or a blocked sink, Metro Rod West Yorkshire provides Pre-Planned Maintenance (PPMs) for a number of educational premises. We can propose bespoken maintenance plans (PPMs) to prevent the inconvenience of temporary closures. A PPM agreement will help to prevent drainage emergencies from occurring. Our professional and experienced engineers will visit your site and advise on the best course of action to help prevent costly drainage emergencies from occurring in the future.

“We are really proud of the way our engineers pull together to help and support each other, and our customers. They strive to deliver excellent customer service and have the professional training and experience to ensure they can deliver above expectations. All our engineers are CRB/DBS checked and fully trained to the highest standards. We are confident that we have a strong and reliable team. Our engineers have a determination that is second to none; to get the job done safely, timely, and cost effective for our customers.”
– Dave Carter, Franchisee, Metro Rod West Yorkshire




We were contacted by Greenhead college to attempt to locate a problematic area within the drainage system causing frequent blockages. We attended the site and utilising our iTouch CCTV camera inspection equipment alongside our sonar probe drain tracing equipment, we quickly found the exact location & depth of the problematic area. The frequent blockages were happening at a junction within a buried manhole below the carpet, preventing access into the system. Our drain tracing works gave the customer the correct information for the manhole to be exposed, providing access into the blockages whenever they occur. There was no need for any exploratory excavations to be carried out, saving the customer time and money.

“We initially called Metro Rod due to a blocked toilet that our caretakers and plumber couldn't unblock. Metro Rod engineers came out in a short time and used their specialist equipment to remove the blockage and get things working again. Whilst in college, our plumber asked the engineer if he could put his camera down a drain where we were having additional problems. This was arranged for a Saturday morning (no extra cost) and again the problem was identified. I would recommend Metro Rod for any drainage problems.”
– John Blake, Director of Finance and Resources, Greenhead College, Huddersfield


We are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide exceptional service.  We believe that prevention is better than cure. With pre-planned maintenance (PPMs) we can work scheduled in school holidays to stop any small problems that may become emergency work in term time. We have worked with Kirklees College over the years and providing them with a Pre-planned Maintenance (PPMs).

“Within my role, I have been dealing with Metro Rod West Yorkshire for several years and I have had no issues with the services they provide for the college. From surveys to emergency call-outs, Metro Rod has aided the Kirklees College to the best of their ability to suit the nature of our requirements. The staff are a pleasure to work with on-site and over the phone and provide detailed information about the work that has been carried out and any further maintenance the college would benefit from.”
Dean Robinson, Manager of Maintenance and Contracts, Kirklees College, Huddersfield


The best way for schools to ensure their drainage systems are running at peak capacity is to keep on top of regularly maintaining the drains’ cleanliness with pre-planned maintenance (PPMs) during school holidays. Some of the work we recommend during these periods are:
• CCTV surveys of your drains
• Urinal descales
• Repair/replace degraded manhole covers
• Gutter maintenance
• Grease trap emptying in your kitchens
• Root cutting and localised structural repairs
• Excavations
• Vermin control
