At Willow Pumps we’re proud to be one of the UK’s leading providers of water pumps and pump solutions, including supply, installation and servicing. With below-ground (foul water) capability as well as above-ground (fresh water) capability, we have been providing our customers with expert services for more than 20 years.

Our focus is taking care of our customers’ needs from start to finish, so we took steps to grow our drainage capabilities and tanker fleet to support the pump maintenance and emergency clearance side of the business.

Expanding horizons

However we didn’t stop there. In 2019 Willow Pumps took the opportunity to join Metro Rod and Metro Plumb as part of the Franchise Brands Group.

There is a natural relationship between drainage and pumps as a pump station is required if a gravity drainage system isn’t suitable. We know that customers appreciate the benefits of a one-stop drainage and pumps solution. Working with our partners within The Group means we have full knowledge of all the issues and being able to deliver an end-to-end ‘water in, waste out’ solution enables the job to be carried out faster and more efficiently.


What does this mean for you?

Pump work can often generate the requirement for additional drainage services, principally tankering, as pump chambers often need to be emptied and cleaned prior to work being carried out. Willow Pumps can supply these additional drainage services, meaning only one point of contact for the customer – a comprehensive solution that saves you time and money.

What does a ‘comprehensive solution’ include?

As a Willow Pumps customer, you can expect to have access to all of the following services:

  • Pump station design, installation, maintenance and repair
  • Regular pump station maintenance plans
  • A 24/7 emergency response service, all year round
  • Water hygiene services
  • Clean water building services, such as cold water booster sets, circulation pumps and pressurisation units
  • Drainage services
  • CCTV drain surveys
  • Flood response
  • Grease management
  • Sewage treatment plant services

Both below-ground and above-ground pumps are engineered systems requiring specialist mechanical and electrical knowledge and careful maintenance. Willow Pumps contribute significant expertise in this area, enhancing Metro Rod’s offering to its customers. Equally, Willow Pumps’ customers can benefit from the expansion in our drainage services, providing a true end-to-end solution.

Willow Pumps - Building ServicesTruly nationwide coverage

By partnering with Metro Rod franchisees we can now provide a complete ‘water in, waste out’ service to all our customers across the country.

The system and operating efficiencies that we gain from being part of The Group are passed on to you through our ability to reach more areas and provide a more streamlined and cost-effective solution.

Unique pumping and drainage solutions

Our focus is always on providing the best possible outcome for our customers, and we do this by considering each one as unique. We know that no two sites are the same and in each case we consider what the individual needs are and how we can meet them. The ability to meet these needs effectively depends on being able to deliver all aspects of the project life cycle, from design and installation right through to ongoing running and maintenance, with tailor-made packages for every step. This is something that Willow Pumps can deliver, supported and enhanced by our partners across The Group, ultimately improving the customer experience.

Dedicated to you

As a business we know that the people who make up our network are our biggest asset. We work to build positive and supportive relationships with our partners, and by listening to our customers and understanding their individual needs we can continue to deliver the high quality, efficient service that they expect.
