Greater Manchester Restaurant

Metro Mechanical's team in the north step in to resolve on-going issue with repeat blockages causing disruption to a busy kitchen and restaurant.

The Problem

Restaurant had been experiencing on-going issues and repeat blockages related to the kitchen foul-water system.

This was causing disruption to the operation of the kitchen and impacting serving of food and service to guests.

The site was initially attended by another contractor, but no resolution was put forward by them to address the issue.

We were contacted by the regional maintenance manager to propose an alternative solution.

The Options

A. Carry out an expensive & invasive internal excavation which would be disruptive, expensive but effective.

B. Carryout a No-Dig Solution which would be cost effective with less disruption but with level of risk

No-Dig Option Taken

Work Carried out over Night


Little disruption


2 x 100mm lines lined
