Local Family Run Business
Roman Rod Ltd is a local and independent family run business based in Bath and serving a growing list of clients in and around Bath, Wiltshire, and South Gloucestershire. We are members of Bath Trading Standards Buy with Confidence scheme and accredited to Contractor Plus Database.

After completing an apprenticeship in plumbing at Bath Tech college, and working for Haywood and Wooster, I decided to start my own plumbing business Roman Plumbing Services with my wife, Donna, back in 1982.
Since then (and four sons later) we have re-branded with a new company name Roman Rod LTD.
This came about because we extended our services to offer drainage solutions alongside the plumbing.
Our business is a genuinely family-run with my wife, Donna, (Company Administrator) answering all enquiries and handling the accounting.
Our eldest son, Jack, has a wealth of experience in the drainage industry and specializes in CCTV Surveys, drain mapping and drain lining as well as plumbing repairs.
The second eldest, Samuel, has recently joined the business after serving in the Royal Air Force, and more recently working in Kandahar, Afghanistan. Samuel has a vast amount of knowledge in the health and safety sector, including risk assessments, and method statements. He is a qualified IOSH Managing safety officer.
My other two sons, Freddie and Billy, are both professional rugby players in the premiership for Bath and Ulster and both support the business.
Our main aim is to give a prompt, reliable and personal service, offering good value and minimal disruption.

Discovered a very smelly drain while clearing shrubs in the garden. Called Roman Rod on Friday afternoon and as promised they arrived at 11 am on Monday morning. These guys know what they are doing and the offending drain was cleared in less than 15 minutes. Really friendly crew much to the delight of Tess the Dachshund who was very disappointed when they left. Excellent and very quick service. Thoroughly recommend. (Reviewed April 2020)

With a completely blocked sink and washing machine out flow i needed someone urgently. I spoke with Donna in the office and within half an Jack from Roman Rod was here at the flat. He quickly identified the problem and was soon quick to work to resolve the blockage in my drains. Which he sorted within the hour. Friendly, super efficient I can't recommend them more highly. Cheers to the team at Roman Rod (Reviewed September 2016)
I looked for a local company to clear my drain, which had been repeatedly blocking up for months, and found Roman Rod Ltd on the internet. They answered my call promptly and came out within the hour. They did an excellent and efficient job, clearly explaining the process and result. I would have no hesitation using them again, if necessary, and in recommending them. They also do driveway/patio cleaning and I will be using them for that in the future. (Reviewed July 2016)
Nearly didn't use them as they had no reviews on this website. We had a drains emergency which they sorted promptly and whilst on site I took advantage of their plumbing knowledge and they fixed two other long standing problems and then explained clearly what I need to do re a heating issue.
Really generous with their time and tidied up. No hesitations in recommending. (Reviewed May 2016)
