What do drainage systems services include?

The water drainage system in our home plays a vital role in diverting water to alleys, canals, and pathways. That’s why it’s important to be able to tell if your house’s drainage system needs repair. In your garden, you may notice standing water, soil not drying out, or soil washing away. There may be water collecting in your basement. You may also be able to spot a blocked yard drain or street grate. When you see any of these signs, it’s best to call a professional right away to settle your residential drainage issues. Below are services for the different types of home drainage systems:

Surface drainage systems

Surface drainage systems are located on the ground. It features a slight slope, so that water can easily flow into the drain. They are installed in a parallel form to prevent flooding or water pooling. Problems with your surface drainage develop slowly through the years. It’s important to keep the stormwater drain on the curbside clear to keep water constantly flowing. Taskers can help you maintain your surface drainage by assisting you with clearing blocked or frozen stormwater drains. 

Subsurface drainage systems

The primary function of an installed subsurface drainage system at home is to ensure that water does not build up in your soil. Its main drain is installed to collect the water, and it’s built and installed on the first layer of soil. If you’re building a new home, you may ask a Tasker to install this type of drainage. You may also notice a problem in this common backyard drainage system when you spot standing water after the rain. If this happens, call in a professional to help unblock and clean your drainage. 

Internal pipes

Many pipes run through the inside of your home. They carry water to your bathroom and kitchens. More importantly, these pipes bring unclean water down the drain pipes. When installing your kitchen sink, you usually have traps put into sealing off the sewer smell. Fitting electrical showers also means having drains as part of the internal pipes. We typically spot problems with these when we see leaks, sediment build-up, or notice foul smells coming from the drain. Professionals can unclog or replace these types of residential drainage systems.

Downspouts and gutters 

All homes contain a downspout and gutter drainage system. It helps remove roof water and comes in two parts: the downspout and the gutter. The gutter catches the water on the roof and leads it to the downspout to let water flow down to the surface drainage. It’s common to encounter problems on your gutters since the debris is usually caught here. Taskers can help clean out gutters and unblock the downspout. You can also seek help from a tradesman when you spot leaks on the pipes.

We have an area in our courtyard, beside the town house, where heavy rain pools and then seeps into the garage (which is further downhill). It only happens with very heavy rain. We’d like a square grate (like rain water pit) dug into the ground then connect this catcher to the existing pipe work (which would be about two meters away through the brick wall side of the house) the existing pipe work takes the majority of the rain water away from the centre of the courtyard. The existing pipe work is exposed under the house and can be accessed without digging. - Due date: Flexible

Drainage installed in gardens around a tiled area


Windsor QLD, Australia

6th Mar 2021

I have two gardens with soil consolidating as water washes into the garden from the adjacent tiled area. I want to install drainage into the garden that catches the water and diverts to a stormwater pipe. There is potentially a fair bit of soil settlement and so there may be a need to put a fair bit of soil back into the gardens. There is no vehicular access to the back yard and so soil will need to be wheelbarrowed from the front to back yards. You will need to come and have a look to understand the task.
