As our neighbouring businesses on the business park that we operate from are starting the Christmas wind down and closing up for a few days (or indeed longer!) there’s none of that here at Metro Rod!  Drains don’t block in office hours unfortunately and so we have to be ready and waiting to deal with any drainage problems that may occur, both day and night – even over Christmas and New Year.

As we here at Metro Rod work for a massive variety of clients then we just have to be on hand to deal with any drainage problems that they may have – from blocked toilets, overflowing gullies, slow draining sinks and showers and even dealing with pre planned maintenance works, such as grease trap emptying, gutter cleaning, interceptor emptying, downpipe cleaning and clearing and anything else that our customers may expect of us at times to suit them, not ourselves.  Even over Christmas our service doesn’t stop and neither do our customers expectations, so we are there for them.  What could be worse than having family and friends round for festive celebrations and having a drainage problem – could be embarrassing and inconvenient but please don’t panic – Metro Rod are here.  Similarly if you have a business or are in charge of a business that operates over Christmas and New Year, if you have a drainage problem we have the solution.




Metro Rod Santa Opening Times


Yes, as you may expect we are operational as usual, genuinely 24 hours a day, 7 days a week all over the festive period!

So if you have blocked drains in Ely, overflowing gutters or gullies in Thetford, bad smells in Bury St Edmunds, slow draining sinks or showers in Cambridge or indeed any drainage problems at all please don’t hesitate to get in touch.  All calls to our office are answered directly by an experienced on call manager who can start assessing any drainage problems immediately and book in a visit from a fully trained, uniformed and DBS checked engineer at a time to suit you.  Our engineers are professional and friendly at all times and always aim for a first time fix.

So, if you are in need of a drainage company over the next few (busy!) weeks we are always here to help, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.  You can do this by;
