Metro Rod was called out to recurring blocked internal drains at a gym, where on the last occasion, the blockage flooded the whole gym (fault on pipe work).
We could not easily clear the drain so needed to come back with 2 men and 3 x extra drums of 22mm cable (off 3 vans) to emc pipe work. The gym didn’t want to split the pipework because doing so would take 2 men 8 hours (including picking up cable from other engineers) and as an emergency, it would need doing ASAP.
Our engineer attended and high-pressure water jetted for over 2 hours, using 4 tanks of water during this process. He also used the mini jetter but the blockage would not move.
Our engineer has been in the drainage business for over 5 years so is a very experienced engineer.
We received the email below following our engineer's visit:
"Thanks for your prompt attendance last night.
I have just been informed that the landlord for the property is taking over this major issue, as it comes under his jurisdiction and he is dealing with it himself, so we won’t need your team to attend today.
Also, I have been asked to pass on comments from the 3 Pure Gym managers that were in attendance last night. They said that your engineer worked so hard to try to clear the blockage, and they have praised his efforts and his prompt action. They said he went over and beyond, was a credit to you and did everything he possibly could last night. They thank him very much. Please can you pass this on from them."Adam Garside - PURE GYM
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”

Our engineer was called out to a blocked soil stack which was affecting the shower and toilet. Once investigated he mechanically rodded the stack to clear the blockage.
Mr O took the time to call us with some feedback…
“I wanted to ring to say what a fantastic job your engineer did at my house today. He was quick, but very careful and respectful of my home. He explained what he was doing and why. It was a difficult job due to the access. He was patient and used fortitude to keep going, it is a long time since I have been impressed with a contractor so wanted to call.”
I thanked him for his time, not everyone takes the time to call us with feedback.
Please feel free to call with any feedback we are happy to take on board any positive criticism and I can assure you we will act upon it.
