Metro Rod were called out to a care home in Bradford. The issue was a blocked staff toilet.
Our engineer arrived on site and immediately investigated the issue. He discovered it was blocked from the toilet to a manhole. He used our High-Pressure Water Jetter several times to clear the blockage and ensured the drain was left free flowing.
On some occasions, we find underlying problems that are causing the issue. Unfortunately, this was one of those occasions! Our engineer carried out a FOC look-see with our camera and discovered that some joints were offset, with cracked pipes causing the initial blockage. Our engineer has put in the recommendations for the pipework to be re-lined.
We received a call from ‘Terry’ who said…. “I wanted to ring to let you know what a fabulous job your engineer has just done for us. He came and unblocked the toilet very quickly, investigated and explained to me what will need doing in the long term, but leaving us with a unblocked toilet. I’d like you to thank him for me”
Engineer: Adam GarsideCARE HOME
"We initially called Metro Rod due to a blocked toilet that our caretakers and plumber couldn't unblock. Metro Rod engineers came out in a short time and used their specialist equipment to remove the blockage and get things working again. Whilst in college, our plumber asked the engineer if he could put his camera down a drain where we were having additional problems. This was arranged for a Saturday morning (no extra cost) and again the problem was identified. I would recommend Metro Rod for any drainage problems!"
- John Blake, Director of Finance and Resources, Greenhead College, Huddersfield
