Show Your Drains Some Love…

Show Your Drains Some Love…

Drains are something that are often forgotten until there is a problem, we are starting a revolution in the North East to show your drains some much needed TLC all year round with Pre-Planned Maintenance.


What is Pre-Planned Maintenance?

Pre-Planned Maintenance is a productive approach to managing your drainage system by scheduling in works on a regular basis. This reduces the risk of emergency problems that can result in damage to property and stock; and in some cases loss of production from unplanned closure.

The maintenance programme is tailored to your individual needs following a free site visit from one of our operatives.

People think that having Pre-Planned Maintenance in place will be costly but we have found that it actually saves our clients’ money and time as they do not have the inconvenience to their operations of emergency drainage problems.

Here are just some of the few examples of the maintenance works that we carry out for some of our customers in Newcastle, Morpeth and Alnwick:


If your site has an interceptor then it’s an environmental regulation to get your interceptor checked and skimmed where necessary so that there is no risk of oil pollution. Businesses are audited and need to prove that they are working to avoid pollution incidents and for proof of correct disposal.

Here at Metro Rod North East we have a combination tanker and for a lot of our clients we offer an interceptor maintenance programme where we attend site, skim the oil interceptor and provide them with an Environment Agency Waste Consignment Note.

Descaling Urinals and Pipe Work

Uric acid builds up in urinal pipe work over time and the more frequently your toilets are used the more uric acid will build up. Regular cleans of the urinal pipe work keeps the scale and uric acid at bay meaning fewer emergency call outs. Emergency blockages can cause terrible smells and also out your toilets out of action which is always bad for business.

We tailor our services around you and attend when is convenient to your business and your customers to mean that we will never affect trade.

Gutter Cleaning

Bad weather conditions mean that more leaves and debris are entering our gutters causing them to block and not work effectively. Metro Rod North East have the answer – our innovative Metro Vac system. With 10 meters worth of reach and a built in camera for precision, our Metro Vac allows for easy access and minimises working from height and unnecessary mess.

Free Site Assessment

The above is just a fraction of the Pre-Planned Maintenance services that we offer. We offer free site assessments where we can meet you on site and discuss your needs. No maintenance plan is too big or too small for us.

All of our engineers are DBS checked and trained to the highest of standards; their training certificates along with our Method Statements and Risk Assessments and insurance documents are all available on request.
