When do you need a Drainage Contractor rather than a Plumber?

Posted on May 3, 2016

As with any other aspect of a property, plumbing work can be a costly, time consuming issue to fix. It can certainly help, though, to know who to call out in the event of an issue. There are some situations in which a plumber is required, but others where a drainage contractor is appropriate.

Different situations require these different services for a variety of reasons. Aspects affecting this include:

  • The size or scale of the project at hand
  • The severity and spread of the issue to public areas
  • The urgency of the issue  

Here, we list some of the possible issues that could arise with your plumbing, and note which of these instances would require which type of industry professional.
