When you suspect a damaged drain it can be daunting not knowing who to call, the short answer is Metro Rod Newcastle.

Sink Toilet 768x384

Metro Rod Newcastle are your local drainage experts and this includes repairs. Our drains are subject to wear and tear due to the high levels of usage and stress they undergo which means it is likely that at some point you may need a repair. The first step is being to able to notice when something is wrong. 

Signs there is a damaged drain:

  • Gurgling sounds coming from your drains and pipes
  • Sudden decrease in water pressure
  • Increased water bills but no increase in usage
  • Damp and mould seeping through walls and ceilings 
  • Slow draining water 
  • Water pooling in your home

Solutions you can try:

Some of the simple problems that occur often in a home or business are blocked sinks, toilets and showers. Often these can be remedied by checking the plughole for a build up of soap scum, hair and pieces of food. Similarly if your drains are overflowing outside make sure they are clear of debris that may have fallen in. You can also try using a chemical drain unblocker which might help to get water draining away. These are two simple things that can often solve the problem. That said, it is not always a reliable fix, often these methods will only remove part of the blockage meaning that it is likely to reoccur in the future.

There are a few reasons why you might want to try and solve the problem yourself such as: 

  • Saving money
  • Saving time
  • Thinking the problem can be fixed in a few simple steps
