We here at Metro Rod in Liverpool are excited to hear that GIANTS will be visiting our great city again this weekend!  We want to stress to our customers though not to worry about drain blockages – we will get to you!

Royal De Luxe will be bringing their ever popular Giants to the Wirral and Liverpool from the 4th to the 7th of October and massive crowds are expected to travel to the area to watch the spectacle that is the Giants – over 1 million people turned up last time with more expected this time due to it unfortunately being the last time that the Giants will visit the UK!

Due to the huge numbers of people booked into hotels and B&Bs and travelling into Wirral and Liverpool over the weekend we have had a handful of customers who rely on us for reactive drainage clearing and cleaning asking us if we are still operational 24/7 over the weekend.  The answer is of course YES!


There are a number of scheduled road closures throughout the city, leading to possible delays, however we and all of our engineers are aware of these closures and will do our very best to get to any emergencies in a timely manner.


John Pardoe, Regional Manager of Metro Rod said “We have had heavy snow and flooding in the past 12 months and we haven’t let a customer down yet, we’re not going to let a small problem like a GIANT get in the way of fixing drains for our customers!” – he then joked “I just hope that The Giants don’t use any of our customers toilets, I’m not sure our equipment could cope with that!”


Over the weekend we will be operating as usual and will keep all customers informed as to any delays that we may experience but please rest assured that we will do our very best to be with you as soon as possible.
