When searching for the best drainage company in Christchurch, there a few things to consider, as getting your pipes built or repaired in Christchurch can be a little different than the rest of the country.

After working extensively with the Earthquake Commission the Christchurch City Council to rebuild Christchurch’s infrastructure, our team at Easy Flow Drainage are proud to be a Christchurch City approved drain layer.

We work fast and expertly, despite the inherent difficulties that can be faced while mending a drainage system in the Canterbury region.

Why Is Christchurch More Difficult When It Comes To Drainage?

Christchurch is a low-lying city, which means Christchurch property owners face a higher flooding risk.

The threat of flooding was only made worse by the Canterbury earthquakes, which has increased the amount of drainage infrastructure damage, and therefore more water flooding because the pipes are struggling to survive the damage sustained from said earthquakes.

You often don’t know they are damaged until one day they suddenly break, and that’s where we come in! Drainage companies, like ours, have worked tirelessly to repair the damage caused by the earthquakes and to futureproof their drain laying efforts against potential regional wobbles.

Easy Flow Drainage applies the best approaches to handle broken drainage safely, efficiently and effectively. The Christchurch services we provide include –

Hydro Excavation

Hydro excavation is the eco-friendly method of using high powered jets of pressurised water to cut through soil and debris, without having to use harsh chemicals to do the work. After the water jets, an industrial vacuum excavates the loose soil from the site. This method also provides shorter timeframes – and less cost for you!

Drain & Sewer Repairs

We aim to complete repairs with the least amount of disruption possible, and therefore the best outcome. So instead of just digging straight into the ground, creating a big ol’ mess looking for the problem, we strive to identify the problem first and only excavate the narrow points where it is necessary to reach the repair. Using the latest trenchless technology, we can repair stormwater, broken pipes and sewers while taking the utmost care of your property. We even take before pictures before excavation to make sure we put everything back the way we found it!


As an experienced local team of plumbers and drainlaying experts, we take into consideration the nature of New Zealand’s regional weather and conditions before diving headfirst into a job. We want to make sure that your drains have the best chance of surviving their climate, mitigating factors relevant to Christchurch and the project conditions themselves. There is no job too large or small for our team to expertly handle to deliver the best drainage services available in your area.

Drain Unblocking & Cleaning

We are proudly a Christchurch City Council approved expert in unblocking drains in the Canterbury region, and know the importance of reducing further damage to its drainage infrastructure. We aim to unblock drains with the least destruction possible due to unnecessary excavations!

We use cameras to feed into drains to find the root of the problem, and then pinpoint the problem so we aren’t digging up your expensive driveway or garden and only going where we need to go to flush out the blockage.

While we are down there, we can take steps to either upgrade the pipe or work towards avoiding the same situation down the line – saving you hassle and money! We can use highly pressurised water to hydro jet a stubborn blockage to break it apart and flush it away to restore proper flow to your drainage!

Trenchless Methods (Pipe Bursting)

We offer the best non-invasive pipe fixing services that cause minimal damage to your property without using large excavations. We manage this by using a trenchless method known as “Pipe Bursting”.

This method involves inserting a new pipe within the existing broken pipe, then investigated by our handy cameras to ascertain that the new pipe is going to be the right option to properly match the existing drainage infrastructure.

If the remedy is deemed appropriate, a busting head is fed into the pipe along with with the new pipe, and as they are bigger than the existing broken pipe, the latter breaks apart and its pieces are scattered into the surrounding soil. This offers a water tight solution to a broken pipe without having to dig up a trench in your front yard!

These are just some of the drainage services we offer to our Christchurch clientele, and while we specialise in this area, we also work nationwide to deal with all of the unpredictable Kiwi weather conditions all over the country.

We make sure that you get the best drainage options for your conditions, with minimally invasive methods to keep your home tidy and the way we found it!
