    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 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 more

    Why do drains get blocked?

    Drains typically get blocked due to the accumulation of debris, grease, hair, soap scum, and other foreign objects that restrict the flow of water through the pipes.

    What do I do if my drains get blocked? 

    If your drains get blocked, you should immediately contact a professional drainage company, such as Mega-Rod, to assess and clear the blockage efficiently.

    How do I stop my drains from getting blocked? 

    To prevent drains from getting blocked, it’s essential to avoid disposing of grease, hair, food scraps, and other debris down the drain, and regularly maintain your plumbing system with scheduled inspections and cleaning.

    Who is responsible for blocked drains outside? 

    Responsibility for blocked drains outside typically falls on the property owner if they are within the boundaries of their property, while drains located on public property are typically the responsibility of the local authorities or utility companies.

    How long will it take to unblock my drains?

    The time it takes to unblock drains varies depending on the severity of the blockage. Our engineers aim to resolve the issue promptly and will be able to give you an indication of the timescale once they have viewed the problem.

    Do you have high-pressure water jetting equipment?

    Yes, we have high-pressure water jetting equipment to effectively clear blockages and debris from drains.

    Should I have a drain survey before buying my house?

    Yes, having a drain survey before buying a house is advisable to identify any potential drainage issues and prevent costly repairs in the future.

    Why do my bath and sink make a gurgling noise?

    The gurgling noise from your bath and sink may indicate a partial blockage in the drainage system, causing air to become trapped and released as water drains.

    Why do my drains smell?

    The unpleasant smell from your drains is typically caused by the buildup of organic matter, grease, or stagnant water, which can lead to bacterial growth and emit foul odors.

    My septic tank is overflowing, can you help?

    Yes, if your septic tank is overflowing, it indicates a potential issue with the soakaway or the drainage system leading from the septic tank to the soakaway; it’s recommended to have septic tanks emptied every 3 to 6 months to avoid blockages in the outlet drains.
