    Great response and service. We had our drains blocked and was quite stuck. The team talked us through each stage and what can be done to prevent further issues.

    I find myself posting another very positive review for this company. I find the customer service absolutely impeccable with the owner of the company even arranging urgent visits to my house whilst he is on holiday. All of the staff with whom I've had contact have been highly knowledgeable, courteous and providers of solutions whereby my drainage can be more efficient and not cause continued problems.They also have all the kit so it's not just a man visiting with his rod but you have... technology and power which combined with the friendliness makes for a very stressfree experience.I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this company to those looking for support and quick fix help.read more

    Mega-Rod responded to my issue in a prompt and professional manner. When the engineer attended my property he was friendly and talked me through what had been found and what works he was undertaking. The engineer resolved the issue in less than an hour but his process was thorough. The engineer took care in my possessions, returning all items as they were found. I would have no doubts in using this company going forward.

    I called Mega Rod to help with a very blocked drain and someone arrived quickly to sort it out. He quickly identified that it was a shared sewer and was actually Wessex Water's responsibility so he contacted his office and all the billing was arranged directly with Wessex Water so we didn't need to pay or do anything else. We also used them for a CCTV drain survey before doing building work.We also used them years ago for a blocked drain at a previous house we lived in. Staff have arrived... promptly, been very helpful, friendly and professional and the prices have been very reasonable for all the work they have done for us.It's great to have a local, friendly company to contact for this type of work. I would highly recommend Mega Rod.read more

    Mega-Rod, a local family firm that puts quality over price

    Mega-Rod has a long association with the cities of Bath, Bristol and the surrounding areas.

    We are a still a family company and not a large franchise operation. We are unlike most other drainage companies as we do not pay our engineers on commission. We want our drainage engineers to be on the side of the customer and not a salesperson in disguise.

    Originally founded as Bath Drain and Jetting Services in 1980, our family company began working on specialised high pressure jetting operations such as the pool construction at the Bath Sports & Leisure Centre and blocked drains at The University of Bath.

    As time went by we expanded our services to include a vacuum tanker service for domestic septic tanks, although we also use our tankers for clients such as the council at Bath’s world famous Roman Baths.

    Mega-Rod early adopters of new technologies

    We were earlier adopters of drainage CCTV technology and were amongst the first companies in the UK to produce colour drain CCTV surveys.

    In the 1990s and 2000s we expanded our operation to include large diameter train jetting with a fleet of lorries. It was at this point that we decided changed the name of the company to Mega-Rod to reflect the size of the drains we were capable of clearing. Whist still clearing small domestic pipes, we also began to work closely with Wessex Water on their sewer network responding to emergency drain blockages but also offering planned maintenance operations too.

    In 2011 we were successful in becoming the first local company to be a Wessex Water contractor for the new arrangements for the adoption of private sewers.

    We are very proud to be a Which Trusted Trader and share their core values of offering honest and clear prices and excellent customer service.

    Need your drains unblocking? Septic tank need emptying? Need a CCTV Drain Survey? Contact the experts at Mega-Rod on 01225 422980. We offer a prompt, competitive service from a family firm working in Bath, Bristol and the surrounding area.
