/Sewage pipe services in Hawke’s Bay

Drainways is a Hawke’s Bay contractor that provides expert sewer pipe services. Work with a proven partner for your civil or commercial sewer pipe installation, replacement or repair.

Once problems below ground start affecting daily activities above, business establishments can suffer loss of income and a health hazard develops for people in vicinity.

The main causes of sewer line issues:

  • Normal wear and tear—Sewage pipes are constantly eroded by normal use. Strong caustic cleaners eat away at pipes even if they have some chemical resistance.
  • Clogs — Mains or other sewer lines could experience blockage from a variety of materials.
  • Tree roots — Large root growth from trees could damage nearby sewer lines.
  • Sudden changes in temperature — Extreme weather and rapid changes in temperature can affect sewage systems, causing burst pipes and accelerating normal wear and tear.


Drainways has decades of experience in solving sewage line problems. Whether it’s gravity mains, pumping mains, chambers or manholes, we have the solution to cover all your civil, commercial and industrial sewage pipe challenges.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. How much does it cost to replace or repair a sewer line?

Depending on the specific challenges and unique conditions around a sewer line, it typically costs anywhere from a few thousand to hundreds of thousands in NZD.

If you have a damaged sewer line nearby, please contact licensed professionals who will assess the extent of the damage and come up with an estimate of costs.

2. How do I know if the sewer line has to be replaced instead of repaired?

If upon inspection by a sewage line expert, cracks, holes or other forms of minor damage are found, pipe repairs are still possible. However, if there is extensive damage to a particular area, then the sewer line will need replacement.

3. Can sewage systems be maintained and monitored regularly for issues?

Yes. The entire sewage system is mapped out and each area and pipe already in place can be checked for any potential damage.

Clogging or blockage can be avoided through regular system flushing that ensures clear pipe flow. Soil conditions and tree roots can also be monitored in case there is sewage pooling.

4. What happens when tree roots infiltrate pipes?

They will continue expanding until the pressure breaks the pipe. In some cases, cracks will develop. In more serious scenarios, a total collapse happens and compromises the entire sewage system.
