Finding a drainage specialist
A drainage specialist is someone qualified to install and maintain drainage solutions in and around your home.

How to hire a drainage specialist?
Hiring a drainage specialist is one of those jobs that needs to be done quickly and efficiently so you should put a bit of research into who you should hire. It is a good idea to get a recommendation from people you know who have had their drains fixed or cleaned or even ask your local plumber to find a reputable specialist. You will want to find someone who will be professional in all aspects of the job you need to be done and to be able to advise you on what your home may need in terms of cost-effective drainage solutions.
If you cannot find a recommendation from someone you know, you should be able to find someone either online through their website or online platforms like Plentific.com. When you find some professionals who provide the drainage service you need and any other extra services like maintenance, make sure you read any reviews that are featured online. A drainage specialist’s website should clearly display their qualifications, experience, what services they provide and whether they are part of an association like the NADC, who have codes of conduct to reassure the customer that their members will work to a certain standard.
When you have found a drainage specialist you are happy with, arrange to meet them at your property to talk through the project you want done - including budgets and timeframes - and any special requests you have. From here, they should be able to walk you through the process of the job that you want done, make sure there is adequate access to complete the job, advise you on making the most of your budget and give you an estimate of price and timeframe. If you are still not sure about this particular drainage specialist, ask if you can speak to previous clients and find out how efficiently they can get the job done onsite.
What services do drainage specialists provide?
Drainage specialists are trained in the installation and maintenance of drainage solutions, including drain installation, drain cleaning, repairs and dealing with blocked drains. Drainage specialists will often stock the materials for the job and will install them for you too so you can get everything sorted in one place. These specialists are experienced and can usually advise on the best drainage solutions for your budget and what maintenance you may need in the future.
How much does it cost to hire a drainage specialist?
The cost of hiring a drainage specialist will depend on whether you are getting an installation or standard maintenance. If you are going direct to a drainage specialist, you can get the materials from them - where you might get it cheaper for doing it all together - or other specialists will install materials you have already bought yourself if there is something in particular you want installed. It will also cost more for an emergency callout than a routine maintenance check on your drains. It will be up to you and the individual drainage specialist you hire to organise a payment plan before you draw up a contract. Make sure you know exactly what is included in the price with regards to VAT, materials and labour as you don’t want any surprises when you receive an invoice.
