How we started
Founded in 1963
Dyno-Rod® was founded in 1963 by Jim Zockoll, a former airline pilot. He pioneered the use of a new electro mechanical technique in the UK and used this to help unblock drains. That was just the start of our journey to tackling home emergencies, all over the country.
Before long, Dyno-Rod became one of the market leaders. Today, we’re proud to say we still are. When someone has a problem with their drains, Dyno-Rod is usually the first name that comes to mind. And for good reason. We operate as a franchise business offering full national coverage from highly trained local engineers, all proud to sign up to our values and high standards.
Expanding our offering
During the 1990s we expanded even further. This time into more general plumbing services. We quickly built up a UK-wide engineer force which is now one of the biggest in the country. Today we do drains and plumbing. So, we can save customers from more home emergencies than ever before.
Size & scale – supporting the UK's main businesses
Dyno-Rod have developed tailored support services for large commercial organisations.
In fact, our dedicated Business Key Accounts team is currently looking after circa 200 national accounts.
Part of British Gas and Scottish Gas
Although we are proud of our past, we’re always working hard to improve our products and services. We’ll continue to remain at the forefront of our chosen markets – plumbing, heating and drains. And whatever the future brings, we’ll make sure you can depend on Dyno.
