Drainage systems and solutions for new home builds

Building a home can be stressful and there are lists that put building a home near the top of the most stressful, second only to events like loosing a loved one. At Digga Drain we work to remove the stress that occurs when you are either building a new home or renovating an existing one.

Why is building so stressful?

Firstly, because 90% of building-based decisions need expert guidance, advice or direction and secondly, building a home will for the majority of people, be the most expensive purchase they will ever make. Hence, stressful!

As specialists in the field of plumbing and drainage we will liaise with builders, designers and councils to determine the best solution for your drainage plans and come up with a design plan to fit. Let us use our expertise to lessen your burden of stress while building or renovating.


Building can also bring up added extras or additional ‘red tape’ that you hadn’t accounted for.

For example, there may be instances where the council requires a building consent for your drains, in situations like this we can arrange, liaise and organise this on your behalf - this makes for a quicker process and less time holding up the project.

What else makes Digga Drain unique?

Guaranteed workmanship

We guarantee our workmanship and stand by the materials we use with our suppliers' backing. We use only NZ approved materials and all work is carried out to New Zealand Building Code and Regulation standards.


More than just new builds

Drain clearing

This need will befall most homeowners at some stage and in your moment of need you can rely on our drainage experts. They are fully experienced in not only the construction and installation of new drains, but also in clearing blockages that are easily resolved using our drain cleaning equipment.

Time, pressure and usage can cause drains to lose structural integrity and if they are unable to be cleared, the next step is excavation.

With years of experience our team are capable of delivering solutions on any drainage situation.

If an excavation and repair solution is needed and agreed to, one of our drainlayers will come to your property, dig up the offending drainage section and replace it with a new PVC pipe, which is impenetrable to tree roots and gives a longer life.
