Drainage and plumbing issues are inevitable in every household. Whenever homeowners face an issue with these systems, they often are confused about who to contact for help. The difference between a drainage contractor and a plumber will help you distinguish better; here’s how.

Wastewater Issue

When you face the trouble of wastewater accumulation in your home or a foul smell around the sinks, it is because you have a blocked drain. Although this problem occurs indoors, its root cause is in your drainage pipes underneath your property. So if you face the trouble of blocked drains and pipes that requires unclogging or replacement, you need to get in touch with an expert drainage contractor who will help you in wastewater treatment. In contrast, a plumber is necessary when there is a problem with water entering your house, like leaking toilets, internal pipe leaks or dripping taps.

Waste Removal Problem

A drainage contractor is responsible for waste removals such as emptying of septic tanks and cesspools. How often you should empty the tank depends upon its size, the number of people in your home and the amount of waste it can hold. Drainage experts are trained for the removal of waste from your home in a safe manner, while a plumbing expert is responsible for fixing the trouble with water entering your premises.

Sewer Pipes Problem

The problems related to sewer pipes not only hamper your pipeline but can also affect the nearby properties. It is best to get in touch with a drainage contractor at the earliest to prevent significant damage and health hazards. In such cases, a plumber generally may not have the expertise in sewer pipes as they have the skills to treat issues with dripping taps and pipes present inside your home. 

Underground Drainage Issues

Drainage contractors make use of innovative technologies to ensure they minimize or eliminate the occurrence of drainage problems. They carry out CCTV drain surveys by installing these specially designed cameras down the drain to monitor their condition constantly. The CCTV camera allows access to areas that are difficult to reach to ensure and identify no problem is left unattended or untreated.

It is imperative to rectify drainage or plumbing problems at the earliest. The best way to identify the exact cause of the problem is to leave the work in a professional technician’s hands.
