Having to unblock a drain doesn’t need to be a stressful task, with Metro Rod Stoke we can have your drains back up and flowing.


Blocked drains are a common occurrence for most households. Metro Rod Stoke know you’ll want a quick and reliable solution, which is where we can help. To help stop the risk of flooding and the potential nose-curling odours, you’re going to want to unblock that drain as fast as possible. Before calling us there are a two main things you can do yourself to get your drains flowing again. 

    1. Start by pouring boiling water down the problem drain. Then pour a cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by 1 cup water and 1 cup vinegar, cover the drain with the plug and wait for between 5-10 minutes. Then pour boiling water down the drain again. The reaction from the baking soda and vinegar helps loosen what is clogging the drain, and then the boiling water helps to push it out. 
    2. The chemical way - pour a sink or drain unblocker as per the manufacturing instructions down the drain, followed by boiling water to help push it along. 

If these solutions do not work and you are still suffering from a blocked drain, then don’t worry as Metro Rod Stoke are here. 

Whether it’s a blocked sink, toilet or drain, we have the best equipment for the job so you can carry on with your day without any further interruptions. We offer two main solutions when it comes to unblocking a drain, which will remove even the most stubborn of blockages. 

  1. High-pressure water jetting is the preferred method we use to unblock drains as it provides a long lasting solution to the problem. We spray highly pressurised water directly at what is causing the blockage within the confines of the drainage pipe, the power of the water then breaks up the mass into smaller pieces which can then be flushed through.
  2. Electro-mechanical cleaning uses a rotating tool which is fed through the pipes and drains by one of our engineers, the tool rotates and breaks up the mass blocking the drain so that it can be pushed through clearing the pipe and drain.
