We here at Metro Rod love Runcorn!  So much so that we fix blocked drains in Runcorn and the surrounding areas on a daily basis!  With a population of just over 70,000 it’s not the largest of the areas that we cover but it is an area of great interest to us, our engineers love working here.  In the past Runcorn was seen as a ‘Health Resort’ and throughout the 19th Century industries developed around the manufacture of soap, shipbuilding, quarrying, engineering and tanning (not sunbed shops!)  It became a ‘New Town’ in 1964.  Nowadays, the sites of Halton Castle, Norton Priory and Norton Water Tower are of historical interest, there are the different sets and locations of the BBC Comedy Two pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps dotted around the town and also it’s interesting to know that Liverpool Cathedral and New York Harbour were built with sandstone quarried from Runcorn.


As well as all of the above Runcorn are fortunate to have an expert drainage company local to them whom service the area on a 24 hour a day 7 days a week basis – Metro Rod!  We work on a daily basis in Runcorn and the surrounding areas offering;


  • drain unblocking
  • pipe unblocking
  • gutter cleaning
  • CCTV surveys on new or established drainage systems
  • drain repair
  • drain tracing
  • graffiti removal
  • grease trap/interceptor emptying
