Drainage & Drain Laying

What is drainage?

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 drain pipes to remove both storm water and sewerage. Laser Plumbing can assist with all your drain laying needs, from the initial planning and design through to the physical excavation and laying of pipes.

Drain Un-blocking

Maintaining your existing drainage will avoid blocked drains 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.

What Are The Signs You Have A Blocked Drain?

There are many signs that you have a blocked drain:

  • Slow draining sink, basin or toilet
  • Sulphorous 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, or cause damage to your health. At the very least, a blocked drain is downright annoying and frustrating.

If you’re not sure what to do about your blocked drain, don’t muck around trying 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. Best suggestion – avoid putting these items down the sink.
  • Blocked shower drain – blocked showers are usually caused by build up 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 drain layers so we can fix cracked or broken pipes, or lay new pipes for you.
