Drainage and drainlaying

Drainage is the removal of surplus water or liquid waste. There are two types of drainage systems, separate and combined.

A separate system collects waste water and storm water separately and disposes them through different channels. A combined system collects both types of waste, storm water and liquid waste, and disposes of them through the same piping network.

When building a new home, you need drainlayers to lay new drainpipes to remove both storm water and sewerage. Laser Plumbing Wanganui can assist with all your drainlaying needs, from the initial planning and design through to the physical excavation and laying of pipes.

Do you really need a qualified drainlayer?

If you’re laying, altering, extending, or repairing drains it’s a legal requirement that you use a certified or licensed drainlayer.

Why Is Good Drainage So Important?

A well installed drainage system provides for the effective and correct disposal of storm water, and foul or sewerage water. This is particularly important because it plays a significant role in protecting your health, the health of your community, and maintaining a pollution free environment.

What’s Next?

So, if you’re building a new home, renovating, or repairing cracked or broken drainage pipes you need a qualified drainlayer. Your local Laser Drainlayer is a friendly and efficient Registered Plumber who will complete your job to a high standard.

Hot Water Systems

If you have an issue with your hot water system, we will inspect your plumbing and identify the problem and provide a solution.

A hot water system is one of the most important features of a household, but not all hot water systems are the same which is why you should always talk to a plumber before deciding which system is right for your home or property. Laser Plumbing Wanganui can help you to determine your hot water needs and discuss the options available with you.

If you have an issue with your hot water system, we will inspect your plumbing and identify what the problem is.

Common problems can include low pressure, low heat, discoloured water or even no heat at all with most people not realising just how much the plumbing in a property can impact on the performance of their hot water system.

We can come to your property and investigate the issue – getting your hot water back as quickly as possible!

Drain Unblocking

Maintaining your existing drainage pipes will avoid blockages which can cause a lot of damage to your home.

Drain inspections and maintenance can help to avoid costly repair jobs. Regular drain checks and cleaning can be performed by a qualified plumber from Laser Plumbing Wanganui.

What are the signs you have a blocked drain?

There are many signs that you have a blocked drain including:

  • Slow draining sink, basin or toilet
  • Strong smells indicating something is rotting down a drain
  • Gurgling sinks, toilets or showers
  • Sinks, toilets, or drains overflowing

What to do with a blocked drain?

A blocked drain can sometimes be easily sorted but, if not dealt with efficiently blocked drains have the potential to damage your property, and cause damage to your health.

If you’re not sure what to do about your blocked drain, don’t try to fix the job yourself. Call a specialist drain unblocker immediately.

What causes blocked drains, and how to prevent them?

Blocked toilet – blocked toilets are often caused by flushing excess toilet paper, or items that shouldn’t be flushed. Common items include kids toys and clothing. We recommend you keep the toilet paper to a minimum, and the lid down.

Blocked kitchen sink – blocked sinks are most often due to food scraps or fatty or greasy foods being put down the sink. This can even block waste disposal units. Avoid putting these items down the sink.

Blocked shower drain – blocked showers are usually caused by buildup of hair or soap scum in the drain. Try cleaning the trap before calling a drain unblocker.

Blocked sewer – blocked sewers are often caused by tree roots. We can cut back tree roots for you, and water blast other blockages away. We’re also qualified drainlayers so we can fix cracked or broken pipes, or lay new pipes for you.

What’s Next?

If you have blocked drains or drain problems that need repairs, call Laser Plumbing Wanganui. A friendly, efficient, registered plumber will clear your blocked drain promptly.

We offer emergency plumbing for when your blocked drain needs urgent attention!

Biolytix - Waste Water Treatment

Biolytix carefully researched the reasons for the problems and high operating costs of septic tanks and aerated wastewater systems and developed a totally new wastewater treatment system.

At the heart of the Biolytix wastewater treatment process is the BioPod. The BioPod is a unique and patented method of treating household wastewater to a level that is suitable for beneficial irrigation of lawns & gardens. The BioPod works by mimicking the way nature breaks down waste which is far more efficient and less energy intensive than conventional wastewater treatment.

Why use high energy machines when nature can do the work for us?

Inside the BioPod

Inside the BioPod is a layered filter bed, engineered to quickly separate the solids from the liquid sewage and to provide a stable environment for the micro and macro organisms that break down the separated solid waste into a stable humic product. The organisms, including tiger worms introduced to the BioPod on commissioning, ensure the entire filter bed is naturally aerated, eliminating the smell often associated with septic tanks and with mechanically aerated wastewater systems. The organisms feed on the waste exactly as they would in nature. By consuming the waste the organisms remove the vast majority of contaminants from the wastewater.

The engineered ecosystem inside the BioPod can be sustained indefinitely with solid material repeatedly broken down and resulting humic material becoming a part of the filter and part of the filtration process. The worms and other treatment organisms simply breed and replenish themselves. Because of the relative lack of mechanical components in the filter bed the BioPod only needs one annual service (most competing systems require 3-4 services each year). Near the bottom of the tank is a geofabric layer, which removes any residual fine solids larger than 80 micron size. This purified and filtered water is then ready to be pumped into the garden for further polishing and where it can be utilised as a beneficial irrigation resource.

Multipod

The Biolytix MultiPod is an onsite treatment system designed to treat wastewater from domestic sources. It uses a double tank configuration and is based on an enhanced trickling filter process which mimics a natural soil habitat. The MultiPod is designed to comply with AS/NZS 1546.3:2008 and must be operated in accordance with this standard.

The treated wastewater will usually be disposed of via a land application system. AS/NZS 1547:2012 describes various land application disposal options for secondary-treated effluent. Disposal systems must comply with the relevant Regional Authority rules and these should be consulted.

The MultiPod is perfect for upto 8-Bedroom house or 13 people.

Wasteflow: Advanced treated effluent dispersal

The land disposal system is a critical component of any on-site wastewater system yet it is the component that typically gets lesser consideration during the design, installation and maintenance of a wastewater system. As a consequence the disposal system is the area problems will typically become evident. Not only that, a poorly performing disposal system can have a negative impact on the performance of the treatment system.

Land Dispersal via Dripline Irrigation

The land dispersal of treated effluent into or onto the land is the ultimate in sustainable disposal options. When correctly designed and controlled water and residual nutrients in the treated effluent can be dosed to plant root zones and beneficially utilised as a free source of irrigation water. Soil microbes further polish the treated effluent finishing the job started by the BioPod.

10 Reasons Why You Should Choose Biolytix

  1. The Biolytix is an ‘ecosystem in a tank’ which treats the wastewater without needing costly large mechanical aerators to run, repair or replace. This results in up to 90% less energy being consumed than in most aerated sewage treatment systems thereby reducing electricity costs.
  2. Unlike aerated systems the Biolytix has no smelly septic tank.
  3. Recommended servicing every 9 months which is much less frequent than other systems on the market.
  4. Silent operation. There are no noisy blowers or pumps that can run up to 24 hours every day on other systems.
  5. Absolutely no offensive smells due to the fact that the Biolytix uses an aerobic process with no septic tank and no large blowers.
  6. Independently tested in New Zealand and Council approved.
  7. Treated wastewater beneficially irrigates lawns and gardens via specialised irrigation incorporating patented technologies for reliability.
  8. Small Carbon Footprint. Negligible methane emissions (which has a global warming potential of more than 30 times CO2).
  9. 100% New Zealand made by a New Zealand owned company.
  10. The most compact, light weight wastewater system on the market. Manufactured from 100% recycled material. Less weight and volume to transport. Ideal for sites with difficult access. Less excavation and less disruption to your landscape.
