When Will You Need a Drain Installation Service?

The Signs and Causes of Broken Drains

There are numerous problems within a house or property that can be indicative of serious drainage issues. If you have slow draining drains, weak water pressure from taps, or water backing through your drains then there may be a fault within your drainage network. Similarly, odd sounds and smells from your pipes could indicate serious problems. A waterlogged lawn is also sometimes indicative of a leaking pipe beneath your garden. 


These problems can be caused by a variety of factors. Everyday wear and tear can break up a drainpipe, particularly in climates where freezing and thawing happen. Tree roots can sometimes grow through the exterior of pipes, compromising them. Similarly, animals such as rats can burrow into drains, causing leaks. Alternatively, the issues could be a blockage within your drain, which can usually be solved through drain jetting or drain rodding.

Drain Relining or Replacement?


When it comes to issues with damaged pipes there are two possible solutions, relining and replacement. Drain relining is suitable for smaller breaks and fractures, involving the insertion of a polymer lining into the damaged pipe, securing it and allowing the uninterrupted passage of water. In cases of more serious damage to your pipes this will not be adequate, and the pipes will have to be replaced. Depending on where this occurs on your property, we may need to dig up parts of your garden to access the damaged pipe. Relining is preferable in a lot of cases, but sometimes it simply won’t be effective, and a new pipe will be required.

Installing New Drains

Another reason you may need the services of a drain installation company could be if you are looking to connect a new area of your property to the drainage system. If you are building an extension, or an outbuilding with a bathroom, then they will need to be connected into the main drainage system of your property, or alternatively to the mains. Commercial customers may also require drains for a new building.

What Will Drain Installation Consist of?

In the cases of damaged drain pipes, the first step will usually be to conduct a CCTV drain survey. This involves inserting a long flexible camera into your drains, using it to search through the drainage network of your property, and then identifying and documenting all problems with pictures and videos. 

A CCTV drain survey will allow a drain installation company such as Coastal Drains to pinpoint the specific location and seriousness of drainage issues. From there, we will be able to determine if pipe relining could be used to solve the issue, or whether a new drain installation will be required.

If the installation of new drainpipes is necessary, then we will first remove the existing damaged pipes, which may require the excavation of any surrounding garden areas. Once the damaged pipe has been removed we can then attach your new pipe, ensuring that your drains are restored to full working order.


Drainage installations within domestic and commercial properties may involve digging trenches within a garden. For commercial drain installation, larger channel drains may be required.
