Drainage - Mapping and Tracing

If you are considering buying a new home, or expanding it with an extension or conservatory, it is often a wise move to have a drain mapping and survey carried out. Simply know exactly where all of your drains are buried. For the inconvenience of having your drains accurately mapped. There are other reasons, such as when problems occur, either with the drains themselves, or serious problems caused by water, such as subsidence.

Having an accurate plan of your drainage will save you from simple mistakes such as laying a driveway over the top of a shallow drain pipe. While you might have thought that their either a. weren't any pipes down there, or b. thought that they were deep enough to not be troubled by your new driveway, having a map of the drainage system to hand would show you that had you laid the driveway there without taking care to protect the drain, not only would you have ended up cracking the clay drain pipe that takes waste water away from your home, but that the subsequent leaks would ruin the driveway as well.

Leaks into basements or cellars are unusual in the UK, simply because not that many homes have them. But excess water in the subsoil doesn't just mean problems those who had the urge to build bomb shelters under the kitchen. Leaks in your drainage system can lead to serious problems. A small leak can loosen and move the soil surround the drain, causing it to shift and leak more. If there is sufficient leakage that has been ignore the next thing that you know, the land is subsiding. Which is why if you contact a specialist to deal with those growing cracks in the plaster, you may find that it down to not paying attention to the drains.

The other problem that you can uncover with a proper drain map is those closed off and 'dead ended' drains. These aren't drains that lead nowhere (which would be bad), but branches of your drainage system that start nowhere. Especially in older houses, as changes are made there are often section of drain that aren't needed anymore. These seldom cause problems, but when they do cause a problem it is usually a doozy. Should your system back up, then you can find that a long forgotten drain suddenly starts discharging under your kitchen floor, which isn't a good thing. These are also a key route for rats to get into your home. So if a problem arised, knowing where these dead ends are can be important. Knowing where they are before a problem arises and dealing with it can often be subsidised by your insurer as you can be saving them serious money in the long run.
