Drain Installation Services in Columbus, IN
Some of the most important pieces in any home’s plumbing system are the drains that connect the home’s fixtures and appliances to a city’s sewer system. Without drains, wastewater that has already been used in appliances or water fixtures cannot leave the home to be treated.
When installing new water-using appliances and water fixtures, new drains may need to be installed as well. Whether you need new drains for this reason or because an existing drain has been damaged, it’s best to work with a plumbing professional rather than attempt a do-it-yourself approach.

Some people do try to take care of drain installation themselves, but because plumbing systems are complicated, it’s always best to work with a certified professional. If new drains are installed incorrectly, the mistake can cause everything from minor malfunction to major damage throughout a home.
Not only can drains that are not installed correctly cause appliances and water fixtures to function poorly, but they can also cause significant damage to existing plumbing systems. There’s even the possibility of major damage to the home. All these risks can add up to repairs that are much more costly than the services a professional can offer.
Reasons to Have Drains Installed
Most homeowners who contact Summers Plumbing Heating and Cooling need help with drain installations because they are adding a new appliance or water fixture—like a washing machine, toilet, shower, or dishwasher—to their home. In addition, to drain installation in existing homes, we also provide drain installation services for new construction.
New appliances and water fixtures aren’t the only reason a drain may need to be added to a home. New drains may be required if existing ones are no longer working properly. There are a variety of issues that can cause crippling damage to a drain, including:
- Freezing can cause leaks
- Mineral scale build-up creates clogs
- Damage from accidents like holes from dropped objects or blockages
- Old pipes collapsing
- Shifting soil damaging sewer lines
- Tree roots creating clogs or more significant damage
Homeowners should always contact a plumbing professional as soon as they notice problems with a drain. These problems will not go away on their own. Be on the lookout for symptoms of damaged drains including:
- Foul odors
- Water draining slowly
- Sewage back-ups
- Water pooling on the property
How Drains Are Installed
Any drain installation will begin with a discussion between the homeowner and plumbing technicians so the technicians can be sure they understand the needs the new drain needs to meet. After this discussion, a plumber will examine the homeowner’s existing plumbing system to gain an understanding of how the new drain will have to connect to the existing system and to identify any potential issues or hurdles that may be present. Once the examination is complete, the plumber will be able to provide recommendations for the installation and an estimate of how much the work will cost.
Once an agreement is reached, the job can usually begin quickly. Our technicians will make sure the new drain works efficiently while also making sure the connection to your existing plumbing system is secure.
At Summers Plumbing Heating and Cooling, we pride ourselves on creating minimal disruptions to our customers’ lives. We will work to complete any drain installation projects in your home as quickly as possible. We will always check to make sure all wastewater is flowing correctly through your new drain before we leave, so you can feel confident that nothing is leaking and you won’t be subject to the inconvenience of a second visit to correct issues that could have been avoided.
