Drain Installation

Many major problems people have with their drain system can be traced back to Day 1 when the system was installed. An installation that is done shoddily, hastily or inadequately can give rise to major issues down the road.

Fitting two pipes together improperly, so that the connection is not sealed, is one example. In many circumstances, the drain system appears to be working just fine, but all the while that tiny crack is being put under more and more stress. It may leak slowly, or it may blow all at once. Either way, you have a problem on your hands.

So, it goes without saying that you want to make sure that installation of drains on your property is done right.

Drains are connected to fixtures throughout your home that are always standing by, ready to carry waste water away whenever necessary. Even for appliances you might not have considered, like the dishwasher and refrigerator, drains carry water away each and every day.

Each drain is different, depending on the fixture it’s connected to and the function it serves. The drain in your bathroom sink is very different from the one in your washing machine, for example. Proper drain selection is the first step to proper drainage, so it is important to consult with a professional when choosing drains for your home. He will help you determine what size and type of drain you need, as well as answering questions you may not have considered, such as where to put a drain in your basement floor.

Once you’ve selected the most appropriate drains for your home, your contractor will be able to install them exactly as the manufacturer intended and local regulations require, ensuring years of uninterrupted usage.

Drain Maintenance

Home drainage systems are incredibly durable.. The idea behind building such a durable systems is to reduce the need for professional drain and sewer service as much as possible.However, as strong as these materials are, they are by no means perfect, and they do wear down over time. They can even break or crack, causing leaks. Good maintenance can prevent these problems and extend the life of the drainage system.

First and foremost, pay attention to your drains. If you notice one seems to be running slowly or is clogged, don’t use the harsh chemicals to clear it. These can damage your pipes and are fairly hazardous. First try plunging the drain. If that doesn’t work, call one of our plumbers to clear it.

For commonly used drains like those in your kitchen and bathroom, pouring boiling water down them once a month helps keep things running smoothly. Take care when pouring so as not to get burned by the hot water. You can also dislodge small mineral deposits by pouring a cup of white vinegar down the drain, letting it sit for an hour, then flushing with hot water.

These little things can keep your drains from slowing down, which benefits the whole drainage system.
