Metro Plumb was founded after recognising a gap in the market for additional services required by our Metro Rod clients, Metro Rod was founded in 1983 and is a leading provider of drain clearance and maintenance services. Based on the belief that our customers’ needs are of the upmost importance we continue this ethos across our Metro Plumb offering and ensure our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.
You will benefit from the associated history of satisfied customers and a well-respected brand name. We serve domestic households along with many national business customers across multiple sectors including facilities management, retail, water utilities, social housing, hospitality and insurance, as well as local businesses and other customers in the private and public sectors.
