Bringing Hope to Hometown
Changing the Drain Cleaning Industry With Innovative Technology
From a one man-one van operation, to Boston’s leading sewer and drain cleaning company, RapidFLOW Inc. stays ahead of the competition by working harder and smarter, and incorporating the newest technologies to provide customers with quality and reliable service.
The latest innovation to be offered by RapidFLOW Inc. is “no-dig” pipe restoration and lining. With this technology, sewer and drain pipes are able to be completely relined from access points with diameters ranging from 2 inches to 36 inches, and 1 foot to 200 feet. This service allows the compromised pipe to be repaired without causing damage to surrounding landscaping or concrete.
“As infrastructure continues to age, these methods are going to become increasingly popular. Today, RapidFLOW Inc. has the expertise to apply no-dig pipe restoration and lining technology,” says owner Mark Meads.

Giving Hope to Hometown
Boston’s number one emergency sewer and drain cleaning company, RapidFLOW Inc. proves to serve its community beyond clean drains. Since its inception in 1985, Mark Meads has owned and operated his business in Chelsea, Massachusetts, gaining a stellar reputation and success by providing sewer and drain cleaning services in the residential, municipal and commercial markets. When Meads had heard about plans to close a neighboring community-based day support program for adults with intellectual disabilities, he instinctively sprang into action to give back to the city that had given him so much.
Formerly known as RZR, the program had operated on property owned by Meads, and soon employees and patients alike had grown to expect and anticipate visits from him and his father, Stanley, on almost a daily basis.
Beyond dropping in to say hello, Meads also began to provide annual cookouts complete with activities, an ice cream truck and even a chance to sink a RapidFLOW Inc. employee in the dunk tank, which became a staple at these events. Seeing the positive impact the supportive program had made in the lives of these adults, allowing it to close was never an option.
Meads began working hard to become certified by DSS, alongside program director Kristin DeAngelis, and in 2014 the program reopened its doors, this time with the fitting name: Living Hope. Unfortunately, Stanley was only ever able to just witness the plan come to fruition, as he passed only two months later.
Meads has kept his father’s memory and legacy alive within Living Hope, and with it the proof that he and RapidFLOW Inc. know what it truly means to be a leading provider of service by giving back.
