Drainage advice for new homeowners renovating a bathroom | Alternative Drainage

Redecorating parts of the house such as the bathroom can be such an exciting prospect; you get to witness a transformation that adds to the atmosphere of your home, customising it the way you want it to be.

In cities around the region there are an increasing number of new homeowners. Bathroom renovations are common when moving into a new property, as it puts your own stamp on the house and makes it yours. When it comes to bathroom renovations, a potential issue that can go unnoticed.

During a bathroom renovation, fixtures such as showers, bathtubs, and toilets often must be removed. Whilst they have been taken out, that is when most of the refurbishment is done; that means any debris and other dirt could potentially infiltrate the empty drain fixtures or plugholes. This is something to be aware of and mention to whoever is carrying out the work for you.

Some exploratory excavation may be necessary to find the pipes and wiring hiding behind walls and underneath floorboards. Here, it may be found that the plumbing system may also be old or corroded; in this case, the plumber should replace the existing pipe system with a newer more efficient system with better materials. This will go a long way to maintaining an efficient drainage system in the long run.
