Effective drainage is essential for maintaining the structural integrity of your property and ensuring a healthy environment for everyone. At The Local Plumber Melbourne, we specialise in providing comprehensive drainage solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of each client. Our services range from blocked drain cleaning to advanced drainage system installations and repairs. Here’s everything you need to know about our drainage services, designed to keep your systems flowing smoothly and efficiently.

Understanding Drainage Systems

Drainage systems are crucial in directing water away from your property, helping to prevent water accumulation that can lead to flooding, structural damage, and mold growth. Proper drainage is key not only in residential settings but also in commercial and industrial areas where water management is critical to maintaining safe and operational conditions. Within Victoria, The VBA (Victorian Building Authority) outlines all the legal requirements regarding drainage works and repairs.


Components of a Drainage System

  • Pipes and Channels: These are installed underground to direct water from gutters and downspouts away from the building foundations.
  • Drainage Grates: Often located in driveways and patios, these grates catch larger debris while allowing water to flow through.
  • Sump Pumps: Installed in the lowest part of a basement or crawlspace, sump pumps are crucial in preventing water from pooling inside the structure.

Our Drainage Services

At The Local Plumber Melbourne, we offer a range of services to address all aspects of drainage, ensuring optimal functionality and durability. Here’s what we can do for you:


Drainage Installation

Whether you’re constructing a new home or upgrading an old drainage system, proper installation is key to avoiding future problems. Our team uses only the highest quality materials and the latest techniques to ensure your drainage system is efficient and long-lasting. We handle:

  • Installation of underground pipes and channels.
  • Proper grading to facilitate effective water flow.
  • Installation of sump pumps and backup systems to prevent water buildup.


Drainage Maintenance and Repairs

Regular maintenance is crucial to keep your drainage system working correctly. Our maintenance services include:

  • Cleaning of gutters and downspouts to prevent blockages.
  • Inspection and cleaning of underground drains using advanced CCTV drain inspections and drain snakes.
  • Immediate repairs of any cracks, blockages, or other issues detected during inspections.


Emergency Drainage Solutions

Water-related emergencies can happen at any time, especially during Melbourne’s rainy season. We offer 24/7 emergency plumbing services to address urgent drainage issues. Our emergency services include:

  • Rapid response to flooding due to failed sump pumps or severe blockages.
  • Emergency repairs of burst pipes and broken drainage channels.
  • Temporary drainage solutions to manage acute water flow issues.


Stormwater Management

Stormwater refers to the water that originates during precipitation events such as rain or snowmelt. It can accumulate on surfaces like roads, roofs, and other areas, potentially leading to runoff that must be managed to prevent flooding and water pollution. Effective stormwater management is an integral part of our comprehensive drainage services at The Local Plumber Melbourne. We specialise in developing and implementing stormwater solutions that seamlessly integrate with your existing drainage systems. By enhancing your property’s ability to manage heavy rainfalls and prevent flooding, our expertly designed stormwater systems ensure that water is efficiently channeled away, safeguarding your property’s structure and landscape from water damage. Trust us to provide the expertise needed to handle all aspects of stormwater and drainage, ensuring your environment remains dry and secure regardless of the weather.


Innovative Drainage Technologies

Embracing technology is at the core of our services. The Local Plumber Melbourne uses state-of-the-art equipment to diagnose and resolve drainage issues effectively:

  • CCTV Drain Inspections: We utilize small cameras to inspect pipes and drains without the need for excavation, providing a clear view of any obstructions or damage.
  • Jet Blasting: For tough blockages, hydro-jetting uses high-pressure water streams to clear out debris without damaging the pipes.
  • Trenchless Technology: When repairs are necessary, trenchless methods allow us to fix pipes without significant digging, preserving your landscape and reducing repair time.
