Drain Excavation in Brisbane

We’ll Make Sure Your Plumbing is Always Flowing

Liqwyd Solutions has the right equipment to provide drain excavation and underground plumbing services throughout Brisbane. If you’re dealing with tree roots, leaky drains or broken pipes under your property, our plumbers can excavate and repair any problem.

Brisbane’s Drain Excavation Experts

Some of your home’s most important plumbing is installed underground. Underground plumbing installation protects pipes from damage, but it can make them difficult to repair when things go wrong.

Liqwyd Solutions is a Brisbane-based plumber that can handle any drain excavation and underground plumbing repairs. We have access to a range of earthmoving equipment that can make light work of all plumbing excavation jobs.

The process is simple with Liqwyd. We use CCTV drain cameras to locate the issue. If we’re able, we may use specialty drain excavation tools to get rid of blockages and tree roots. If that doesn’t work, we’ll mark the location and use earthmoving equipment to expose the broken pipe.

From there, replacing underground drains is simple, and our commitment to quality workmanship means the new pipe will work perfectly for decades to come.

Signs You Need Drain Excavation

Plumbing excavation is a serious project, but it’s often the best option when underground drains become damaged, corroded or blocked. These are some of the common signs that you need Brisbane’s drain excavation experts:

  • Blocked drains, especially sewerage and stormwater drains

  • Sinks, baths, showers or low-lying areas in the yard are slow to drain

  • Permanently damp patches in your yard

  • Areas of grass that are unusually green and healthy

  • Sinkholes or indentations around the property

  • Sewer smells coming up through sinks and other drains

Excavation is generally our last resort. We always make sure there are no other options before our team gets out the earthmoving equipment.

Contact us immediately if you notice any of the above signs. Blocked and broken underground pipes can cause serious flooding or damage the foundations of your home, so it’s important to act quickly.

Underground Plumbing and Drain Repair

Liqwyd Solutions provides underground plumbing and drain repair services. We use a blend of CCTV drain cameras and earthmoving equipment to repair blocked, damaged and broken drains.

We can use drain excavation to repair a section of underground plumbing if:

  • The pipe is collapsed or broken

  • Tree roots have damaged the pipe

  • Metal pipes have become corroded

  • The pipes are surrounded by corrosive or toxic soil

  • Movement in the property has damaged pipes or drain connections

With underground plumbing repairs, we are typically able to excavate a small amount of your yard to fix the problem. Whatever we’re dealing with, we strive to minimise our impact and avoid turning your gardens into an unsightly mess.

Drain Replacement Services

Underground drain replacement services can help you deal with minor problems, such as collapsed drains, leaking connections and stubborn blockages. We often recommend replacing underground drains where:

  • There are large blockages that can’t be cleared with other methods (e.g. tree roots)

  • The drain is made from low quality materials and has collapsed in multiple locations

  • The drain is over a certain age, and repairs are unfeasible

  • You’re having persistent problems and small repairs haven’t fixed the issue

  • Movement in the ground has damaged large sections of the drain

Underground drain replacement can be a major job. We may need to excavate large stretches of your yard. If the damaged plumbing runs beneath a concrete slab, we often recommend alternative methods, such as rerouting your plumbing.
