Drainage Issue?

Drainage Issue?


Our Vacuum Tanker Service

By using the latest vacuum drain clearing equipment, no blocked drain is impossible for us to clear. Occasionally high pressured water jetting cannot shift the toughest of blockages, but our drain vacuuming tanker is able to suck up the most stubborn of obstacles. The vacuum suction is ideal for clearing blockages at both residential and industrial sites as no job is too big or small. Have you recently had building work done? The vacuum tanker is extremely effective at removing industrial or building waste from drains.

Compact Vacuum Tankers For All Areas

Our vacuum tanker is compact and easy to maneuver, making it ideal for use on construction or industrial sites.

Providing Specialist Drain Vacuum Tanker Services

What are vacuum tanks used for?

Vacuum tanker services are used for a variety of purposes. They can be used for removing stubborn blockages or to allow better access to blockages in flooded manholes. In large concrete car parks there are often grids in the floor to help water drain away. These lead to drains which are usually exposed and can get easily blocked. Vacuum tanker services are very effective in cleaning car park gullies.

Tailored Drain Inspection Services Are What We Do Best

Combination Tanker Jetting

Drain vacuuming combined with the benefits of high pressure water jetting is the most effective way to unblock drains. Whether it be building material, gravel, sand, silt or sewage, it can be removed in a timely manner with minimal intrusion, mess or hassle. We are different from many other drainage companies who only use high-pressured jetting or rods to remove blockages, at Mersey Rod we employ a range of equipment so we can effectively tackle all your drainage problems. We are fully licensed to dispose of hazardous and non-hazardous waste.

Blocked Drains In Liverpool

Emergency Flood Response

Our ability to pump and clear water into our tanker allows us to quickly and efficiently alleviate flooding in places such as basements. Floods can happen no matter what precautions have been taken, and can cause irreversible, costly damage to fixtures and fittings. Sludge and mess can remain in your property creating further problems. Our vacuuming service can quickly clear the flood and the resulting debris, as well as clear any drains to facilitate the draining of water.


Car Parks and Businesses

Our vacuum tanker services are ideal for clearing blocked and overflowing drains in carparks. Often, these drains require more than just high-pressured jetting or rodding, as they collect a much larger quantity of debris and rubbish compared to smaller drains – this is where vacuum removal services are required. Our vacuum tankers are available 24/7 and can clear drains in a fast and efficient manner, leaving your carpark or business premises free from blocked drains.
