The Summer Solstice Means More Sun On Our Drainage Engineers!

The Summer Solstice Means More Sun On Our Drainage Engineers!

Today marks the first day of summer and the longest day in Britain as the Summer Solstice brings more sunshine! While people gathered at Stonehenge to watch the sunrise this morning at 4:52 AM and look forward to the late sunset around half past 9 tonight, we have been looking forward to bringing our 24/7 emergency drainage services into the light!


When it comes to drainage, you need it to be working at all times. There's nothing worse than a blocked toilet, especially if it's the only one in the property! Blocked manholes can become overwhelmed if not unblocked and that can lead to some unpleasant flooding. A blocked washing machine outlet can lead to indoor flooding, which is equally as bad. And it's not just residential properties that need their drainage to be in tip toe condition: pubs and restaurants can grind to a halt if a bad smell or blocked kitchen drains cause havoc for diners. Hotels need to know their en suite bathrooms are in excellent working order or end up disappointing some guests. Schools and businesses also need to know their facilities are in good working condition.

Basically, drainage is important and problems with it can really mess up your day!

Lucily, Metro Rod operates twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, including all bank holidays so if disaster strikes you know you can pick up the phone and call us. We carry out emergency reactive work if you drains block suddenly, but we also set up pre-planned maintenance schedules for clients who want to ensure they aren't brought to a standstill due to drainage problems. Whatever the problem, you can get in touch with us and we can see you right. Now with added sunshine*!



*Hopefully. It is still a British summer after all so the sunshine is not actually guaranteed
