We were extremely impressed with the quality of professional service and advice with respect to overcoming a long term drainage issue at our home which could not be resolved by other plumbers. We particularly appreciated the advice received from Jordon with respect to resolving a seperate drainage issue which would involve significantly lower costs.

Subsoil Drainage FAQ

Subsoil drainage is a system designed to remove excessive water from the soil, preventing damage to buildings and landscapes. A subsoil drain is installed beneath the ground and should ideally be planned during the initial stage of building or landscaping to achieve the most effective results.

A subsoil drainage system is required under certain conditions, such as when groundwater pressures are likely to cause dampness in below-ground internal parts of buildings or damage to the foundations of structures and pavements. Additionally, subsoil drainage can aid in increasing soil strength by reducing the moisture content of the soil. 

The most common type of subsoil drainage system is an underground pipe made from a porous material, such as perforated PVC or flexible corrugated plastic. These pipes allow water from the surrounding soil to enter the pipe while preventing the entry of debris that could cause blockages. Subsoil drainage pipes are usually installed in trenches filled with coarse gravel or other drainage materials, which facilitate water flow into the pipe and away from the property.

Types of subsoil drainage include:

  • Vertical Draining
  • Horizontal Draining
  • Slope Draining
  • Mole Draining
  • Interceptor Drains

Installing a subsoil drainage system involves a series of steps, including:

  • planning and preparation of the site
  • setting out and excavating trenches to fit the drainage system
  • installing bedding materials
  • installing the actual drainage system
  • trenches are backfilled with soil and aggregate, then compacted

Only qualified professionals should attempt subsoil drainage installation. A professional has the knowledge, experience and qualifications to adhere to work health, safety, and environmental requirements, as well as ensure quality assurance as set out by the relevant industry codes and guidelines.

Our rates for installation services depend on the scale and complexity of the drainage system. Please contact our friendly team at (02) 4058 2223 to discuss your specific situation and receive a customised quote.
