Covid-19 has placed significant pressure on most industries within the UK, in a variety of different ways.

Metro Rod’s services

We’re about more than just drains. As well as the more traditional systems, we’re also experts in water pumps and asset mapping. Our full range of services includes:

All of these services can be worked into a Pre Planned Maintenance schedule – a service plan for routine maintenance which takes place at regular intervals across the year, to prevent the problems which regularly occur in these systems. For example, ongoing scale or grease build-up in pipework can lead to overflows and blockages, which often result in emergency building closures and costly engineer call outs – something both you and your customers will want to avoid. Maintenance might not be top of your list but in the long term, it cuts down the number of emergency call-outs, reduces the amount you spend and keeps the customer free from unnecessary disruption.

Reduce contact points in the workplace with touch free drinking water solutions from Zip Water

By Zip Water

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world in incomprehensible ways. What is clear is as we emerge from lockdown there will be a need to incorporate touch-free technology to meet the vital health and hygiene requirements that the UK government has implemented, to ensure a safe return to the workplace.

With the average person touching their face more than 20 times an hour, it’s possible to transfer viruses from everyday objects, such as handles and taps, to the mouth and eyes, and vice versa. At Zip Water we have a number of new touch-free drinking water solutions for the workplace. Whether you already have a system fitted and are looking for a contactless retrofit solution or want a brand-new product that will enable staff and visitors’ hands-free access to drinking water, at Zip we have it all!

The brand-new Zip HydroTap Touch Free Wave offers a 100 percent contactless solution for filtered boiling, chilled and sparkling drinking water. To dispense water, a user simply hovers their hand 1.5-5cm from the smart infrared sensor and the water flow will stop immediately once their hand has moved away, if the tap is touched or grabbed it will deactivate.

For areas that require larger volumes of filtered chilled and ambient water, the innovative new floor-standing HydroChill HC03 touch-free dispenser is the perfect solution. Easy to install in areas away from the kitchen – such as staff rooms and corridors – this dispenser also features a nano silver surface coating that works to kill up to 99.9 percent of bacteria across a 24-hour period.

If you already have a Zip HydroBoil or EconoBoil system fitted in your workplace, our simple to install touch-free adaptor allows for the dispensing of boiling water without needing to touch the handle. The adaptor can be quickly and easily fitted over the existing HydroBoil or EconoBoil handle to enable users to dispense boiling water by pushing back on it with a cup.
