Needing a drain repair can be daunting, but Metro Rod York are here to help as your local experts in drain care and repair. 

A damaged drain can get worse overtime if it is left and not repaired. So if you think you may be in need of a drain repair then contact Metro Rod York who will be more than happy to help. We know that people often worry when it comes to drain repairs. They think it will mean excavating down to the problem. However, at Metro Rod we offer ‘no-dig’ and ‘trenchless’ repairs which helps minimise disruption to your property. Instead of digging down to reach the drain pipes, we use various lining techniques to fix the problem. Using Localised Structural Drain repairs, such as Patch Liners and Ambient Cured Lining, Metro Rod carries out the work in a cost-effective way that really fixes the problem. You can be sure you’re getting the best fix and value for money. 

How can you tell you need a drain repair?

Here are a few tell-tale signs that you may have a damaged drain and should call Metro Rod to conduct a drain repair:

  • Unpleasant bad odours are often the first obvious sign that something is wrong in your drainage system - it could mean theres either a blocked pipe or potentially a waste pipe has burst and is in need of repair. 
  • Increase water bills may indicate that you have a leak somewhere in your drainage system.
  • Low water pressure, might mean that there is a blockage in your pipes but in more serious cases in can mean a broken pipe which can lead to drain collapse if left for too long.
  • Pooling water around the sink, bath, toilet will indicate a pipe has a leak.

What are the causes of damage resulting in the need for drain repair? 

  • Root related damage, roots can grow into pipes splitting them ad causing blockages and leaks
  • Freezing and thawing in pipes, water when it freezes it also expands, putting more pressure on the pipe which can then rupture. Then when the frozen water starts to thaw it will starting leaking from the ruptured pipe.
