We are constantly trying to better ourselves here at Metro Rod Newport, Hereford, Gloucester, and Cardiff.


Our newest addition to the Metro Rod family is a Rioned Riocom 7.5t Jetvac combination tanker.

Get to know our Riocom Tanker

The most poplar choice in the drainage industry at the moment is the 7.5t Riocom unit. This is due to its manoeuvrability in urban areas with limited access.

The unit is Ultra Low Emissions Zone compliant due to it's PTO drive. This means that we are not only looking at todays plans but the future as we see ULEZ increase in cities around the UK including London, Bristol, Sheffield and Newcastle.

The Riocom can be driven without a HGV licence as long as they passed their driving test before 1997.

Above all, the 7.5t RioCom jetvac unit incorporates a powerful pump with a suction capacity of 1800 gallons per minute and a high-pressure pump with a capacity of 2200 PSI


Specifications of the Riocom

The Riocom holds a variety of specifications, for example:

  • 3.000 litres watertank
  • Fully radio remote controlled allowing one man operation
  • Compact dimensions for those tight spaces
  • Secure, shuttered storage space
  • Mechanical tank level indicator for wastewater
