Get Your Drainage Right the First Time

In all our years of being a local plumber in Melbourne’s South East suburbs of Narre Warren, Rowville, Ferntree Gully and Berwick, one of the most common plumbing problems we see are poorly installed drains and drainage.


Properly installed drainage can make your plumbing’s life easy, but it really should start with the construction of your new home. RTF Plumbing and Gasfitting regularly work with local builders to create plumbing and drainage plans for new homes.

It is essential that you consider the terrain of your property when you install your drainage solutions. And this is exactly what we do and recommend you do, when installing drains in Melbourne’s South East. Suburbs like Berwick and Rowville are often prone to heavy rains, and one of the best ways to avoid sodden backyards is installing agriculture drains (see more about this type of drainage here). It’s also important to plan your normal drainage and drain placement carefully if you want to avoid blocked and damaged drains.

What does planning carefully mean? Well, the things you need to consider include vegetation, the slope of the ground, water build up, and type of soil. The biggest issue we tend to see is when drains have been placed near trees. The roots will often damage or block the drains, causing a potentially expensive problem.

While RTF Plumbing and Gasfitting can handle any blocked or damaged drain problem, we prefer to set our customers up for success by getting their drainage installed right the first time.
