Squirrel Stuck In Manhole Cover

Squirrel Stuck In Manhole Cover


This is such a sweet little face, this poor squirrel was trapped in a manhole cover in Germany and successfully rescued and taken to the local vet as reported by The Independant at the weekend. Metro Rod Norwich also find's items stuck in drains which aren't quite so pleasant. We can quickly and effectively remove any blockage that you may have, restore flow and get your facilities back up and running quickly and without fuss or bother.

It is an everyday fact that pipes and drains block up, this could be due to fats, grease and items such as wipes . Or the pipe could be damaged or have reached the end of its life. Here at Metro Rod Norwich we can offer you specialist drain clearing services:-

High Pressure Water Jetting: This is the process of using water propelled at high speeds to clean surfaces and materials. This application is particularly effective in clearance of drains as the impact of high pressure water on a blockage is to soften or emulsify it, which restores flow aided by water used in the jetting process. All Metro Rod Vans carry HPW Jetting equipment.

Electro-mechanical cleaning (EMC). This is the process of using a motorised tool to rotate a cable or spring which is stored on a drum within the tool. The operator feeds the cable into the pipe that is blocked and uses the tool to rotate the cable within the pipe. This has the effect of breaking up any material which has accumulated in the pipe which is largely removed on the cable and the remainder flushed harmlessly away into the drainage system.

Our engineers will attend site and make a brief assessment of the problem, they will then be able to offer you the best technique to clear your blockage quickly and efficiently. Our engineers will want to offer you the most cost effective solution to offer complete satisfaction and ensure that the problem is resolved first time.

Our engineers are highly trained and are also CRB/DBS checked as standard and carry relevant ID cards.
