    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

    Drain Jetting

    Drain jetting is the process of cleaning stubborn substances and oils from pipework, metalwork and cleaning the deep insides of drains that regular pressure washers cannot reach.

    How it’s done

    Drain jetting is the most effective way to clean and clear drains and pipework. There are long jet hoses with a jetting nozzle attached to filled water tanks and these are fed down the drains far deeper than an arm can reach to be able to clean the area. Drain jetting hoses can extend far further than you can reach with drain rods, and they can find their way around the bends in the pipework and the high pressure water can put more force on the blockage and substances that are sticking to the walls of the drain.

    The best thing to know about drain jetting is that almost all drains and all blockages will benefit from it. High pressure washes that you would use on your driveway or car are not the same as the jetting you get from these hoses. These have the power to remove a tree root as well as the blockages caused by a buildup of waste, fat and grease inside the drains.

    Who uses drain jetting?

    Sometimes, drain jetting is done by oil and gas industries to clean substances from pipes and wells that other methods have completely failed to clean. Drain jetting is used by industrial companies, those who manage business properties and can be used in domestic situations, too. Professionals, such as the reliable and friendly team at Mega-Rod, should be the ones in charge of drain jetting, because they are the ones that are fully trained and understand the impact that jetting can have on your home and your equipment.

    When a qualified drain jetting team come to your premises to work on your drains, they will respect your home and your property. There are strict guidelines when it comes to drain jetting that they will adhere to, including setting up safety zones and ensuring that all those who do not need to be near the jet are in the way. It’s the best way to clear right through the debris and blockage in your drains, and it prevents the professionals from having to dig out the pipe.

    It’s also fantastic for the environment, because there are no chemicals or bleaches involved. Drain jetting is purely water at a very high force doing all the cleaning. It’s the fastest and most economical way to clean your drains without dumping chemicals into the system.

    Why it should be done

    Drain jetting helps the water to flow again in blocked drains. When the water keeps backing up through the pipework, you can assume that there is something down there blocking it all out. You could find fatty deposits from food and grease is coating the inside of your drains, and this is one of the easier things to clear from the drains. Sometimes, bigger blockages can be the cause of the water flow stopping, but don’t worry: if a drain jetting service can push through a tree root, you should be fine. Here are some of the advantages of drain jetting:

    • A fast fix for your drain issue
    • The flow of water increases over 90%
    • A thorough drain cleaning that may not have been done for a while
    • Quick route to the problem in your drains.
