Drain Installation

Drain Installation in Anderson

Chances are that you don’t spend much time thinking about your home’s drain. But your home’s drain system serves a vital function.

The drain system in your home removes wastewater from your sink, tub, and basement floor. The drain you see at the bottom of your sink connects to the pipes that carry wastewater from your home.

If you look under your sink, you will probably see the “trap”—a U-shaped pipe designed to trap sediment. The trap prevents anything from coming back through your drains, such as wastewater or odors. A drain replacement service can replace some or all of these components.

There are two general occasions for installing a drain. Drain installation becomes necessary when:

  • Your existing drain isn’t functioning and can’t be repaired
  • You’re remodeling and need to install a new drain

Each of these needs requires careful consideration. The professionals at Home Team Heating and Cooling can help you with all of your plumbing and drain installation services.

When Should I Consider Drain Installation?

If your existing drains are not working properly, you may be able to simply repair them. When do you need to consider this step? The following are some symptoms of a drain that needs attention:

  • Slow drains, especially when it occurs multiple parts of the house at once
  • Water pooling in the basement or beneath the sink
  •  Stubborn clogs
  • Water coming back from the drain (sometimes called “backflow”)

If you’re considering drain installation, it may be that you’ve already attempted a repair and the problem remains.

When to Install a New Drain

There are several signs that it’s time to install a new drain including:

  • Your home is 50 years or older
  • Drain problems recur despite repairs
  • Water still backing up 

If any of these apply to your home, it may be time to consider installing a new drain.

Drain Installation and Home Remodeling

For others, drain installation accompanies a home remodeling project. Congratulations! Remodeling can improve the comfort and value of your home.

Drain installation might be necessary for remodeling a kitchen, a bathroom—or when you’re building on any sort of addition that will have running water.

Some homeowners get a lot of satisfaction and joy from rolling up their sleeves and tackling home renovations on their own. These DIY projects can be a lot of fun, but drain installation can be more complicated than you might realize. You don’t want to risk damaging your existing plumbing and fixtures by attempting this problem on your own—and if you do cause damage, your homeowner’s insurance might not cover these expenses.

Understanding the Types of Drains

Homeowners need to consider which type of drain is right for their home. Drains come in different styles and materials, including:

The Compression Style

These drains fit directly onto your home’s existing pipes.

Glue-On Drains

As the name suggests, these drains rely on adhesive to connect to your home’s existing pipes.

Custom Drains

These drains are specific to different types of tiled shower bases.

Each of these options comes in various materials, some of which may be specific to the area in which the drain is to be installed.
