Here at Metro Rod Bristol, we strive in offering the best customer satisfaction and will offer you the most cost-effective solution to ensure the problem is resolved on a first-time fix.  Our engineers will complete tests on the pipeworks once it has been unblocked to give confidence that you will not have to call us out again within a few days.

Methods for Unblocking Blocked Drains

Our engineers use specialist drain equipment to clear a blocked drain a couple of examples are:

High Pressure Water Jetting: Which is used by using water which is delivered at high speeds to clean surfaces and materials. This is very effective to clear a blocked drain as the impact of high pressure water on a blockage is to soften, this should help to restore flow.  All of our engineers are trained with this equipment and will carry it on every van.

Electro-mechanical cleaning (EMC): Is the process of using a motorised tool to rotate a cable or spring which is stored on a drum within the tool. The engineer will then feed the cable into the blocked pipework and will use the tool to rotate within the pipe. This will then break up any material which has gathered in the pipework. The blocked material is largely removed on the cable and the remainder flushed away into the drainage system.

To help ensure your toilet does not get blocked it is easy to remember we should only ever be putting the three Ps down the toilet… Pee, Paper and Poo.
