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.

Blocked drainage for dishwasher - help!


Redfern NSW, Australia

2nd Sep 2021

Hi there! Our dishwasher has a puddle in the bottom that isn’t draining. This happened the other day after the sink blocked up as well - the sink has since drained and seems to be flowing freely but the dishwasher is still not draining. Seems like the blockage may have been in the common pipe and for some reason hasn’t drained for the dishwasher.

Hi, want to get our water heater disconnected (already disconnected from power) and emptied as we are moving it out of where it is - it is a small heater under the kitchen bench. We are not putting a new heater in just yet so not sure if need the pipe plugged? Could you also replace the drain pipes under the kitchen sink (I think an s-bend and straight connector?).

Building advice - drainage


Erskineville, NSW, Australia

16th Feb 2021

My neighbour is planning to construct an exterior wall alongside my exterior wall, creating a 150mm gap between the two properties, extending 3m from the property. They propose to cover the gap (void) with flashing. They are not planning to address drainage. Their opinion is the flashing will be sufficient. I am concerned about potential drainage issues in this space. Am seeking an expert opinion in this matter. Doesn’t need to be a full report, just a look at the ground in question and a professionally supported recommendation that can be used to negotiate a solution directly with the neighbour. 1. Is the flashing alone sufficient 2. Does a drainage solution also need to be in place 3. If so, what would the most efficient solution be? The plans are here :
