Dyno-Rod logo


Dyno Rod provides a professional service for the cleaning, inspection and refurbishment of drain, sewer and pipework systems.

We offer a 24hour 365 day emergency service and we currently have franchise opportunities in West London, Aberdeen and the Medway Towns.

Service Description

Dealing with blocked drains on an on-demand basis is the foundation for the Dyno-Rod service. In recent years the service range has evolved as have the different types of markets in which Dyno operates. The service range is now comprehensive covering cleaning, maintenance and repair services for all types of drain and pipework systems. The surveying of drains for structural analysis using CCTV equipment is an established activity as is drain lining – a technique to repair structurally defective drains that avoids the need to excavate.

The markets have also changed, with a greater emphasis on serving insurance customers and exploiting longer-term contractural arrangements with commercial customers to provide preventative solutions.

Business Organisation

Dyno-Rod is an established business with limited re-sales available.

Usually, a two or perhaps three van business can be run from home, but as trade increases and resources expand, a move to small premises might be necessary. It is at this point that you could expect to assume responsibility for handling customer telephone enquiries and perhaps credit control, to become a more self contained operation.

In most cases, Dyno-Rod franchisees operate in specific geographic territories with a minimum residential population of 500,000 as well as a mix of commercial and industrial premises. A healthy call rate will exist from day one, with the incoming franchisee receiving the benefit of an existing portfolio of regular commercial and industrial customers. It is upon this base that you develop your business using the local marketing.

A founding member of the British Franchise Association and one of the first businesses to be franchised in the UK, Dyno-Rod is reported to be recognised by three-quarters of the UK adult population. From its foundation in 1963, Dyno-Rod has grown into a complementary fleet of 24-hour property care services under the Dyno Group brand. Part of Centrica, the company has the backing and resources of a major service organisation – British Gas.


Financial Information

The amount that you could earn from owning a Dyno-Rod franchise will be determined by several varying factors. For example, the fact that licensed areas are not exactly the same size, and that each could comprise slightly differing demographic profiles, will have a bearing on turnover levels. More importantly, the effort devoted to business development will significantly influence revenue and earnings potential.

During 2005 the average annual turnover of a Dyno-Rod franchise was £640,000, with a number of our well established businesses generating sales in excess of £1m. The level of operating profit being achieved is generally very good, ranging between 10% and 20%. This will have been determined by the mix of work that the franchisee has carried out, the area’s geography, local staff and operating costs and how efficiently the business is being run.

All Dyno-Rod franchises are established businesses, and so have a track record. Should you apply for a Dyno-Rod franchise we will provide you with specific information about the financial performance of the particular franchise area that you are interested in. This will then enable you to prepare the required business plan and fully consider the opportunity.

The Next Step

If you have the drive and determination to make a success of your own business, but would like to do so with the backing of a large established organisation behind you, we'd like to talk to you.

During the course of the application process, you will be given the opportunity to talk to existing franchisees and to visit head office before you make any commitment.
