Raising the bar
Here at Drainfast we've always been known for our fast delivery times. We're all about getting your drainage to you quickly.
We've recently improved our service here at Drainfast. Our cut-off for orders used to be 3:30 pm. Now you can order until 5 pm for delivery the next business day.
To achieve this level of service, we're starting early. Here's a video of our Alton depot from earlier this week.

COVID-19 forced many construction companies to close for the past month. As you reopen, you need to progress projects fast and we're here to help. Get back on schedule with Drainfast!
Work with a supplier who has the stock!
There has never been a more important time to work with a supplier you can trust. Over the past month, we have built up excellent levels of stock across our three strategically located depots. Our supply chain is strong and we're ready to start delivering to your sites.
Be ready to adapt fast and be responsive!
Plans change all the time on site. Everything from the weather to the architect could hold you up. You need a supplier who can adapt and keep up with the speed you're working at. Friendly service and a can-do attitude to your requests make us refreshingly different. Whatever the request we're ready for it.
Order by 3:30 pm and we'll deliver next day!

Since Drainfast has been supplying drainage for nearly two decades now, we've become familiar with the challenges faced on site installing it. Loose or bagged bends and fittings inevitably end up in a mess on site, leading to wasted time, materials and money. The traditional process is inadequate and costing groundworks contractors time and money.
The SiteStak System was designed and developed to challenge traditional processes on site, change the way drainage is handled on site and save groundworkers money. It revolutionises the storage, transportation, stock control, and cutting of underground drainage.
SiteStak Limited incorporated in March 2018. In the past two years John and Mark Chambers have de

This month we’re going behind the scenes, to speak to Trevor James, Operations Director about the Frost Drainage brand. Relatively new to the Drainfast business, Frost offers exciting potential for both the Drainfast business and its customers.
Why did Drainfast buy the Frost brand?
The Frost brand goes back some 40 years, some of you will remember it from the days when it was the leading drainage brand in the industry. The Frost brand has a strong heritage as a trusted British brand, synonymous with quality and simplicity. Here at Drainfast we are constantly looking for opportunities to meet customer needs so when we heard that F.C Frost was for sale, we knew there was an opportunity worth taking. The Frost brand and products complement well our overall business mission of ‘removing the frustrations faced by our customers’.

Any groundworker will know that even in these days of mechanical diggers, the humble shovel is still an invaluable tool for digging into the ground, moving earth and scooping up debris.
Part of the fabric of any building site, they are not an item that gets much attention – but at Drainfast we felt they deserved to shine.
Humans have been moving earth since Neolithic times. Evidence of this comes from animal shoulder blade bones found at various archaeological sites with tell-tale wear-and-tear. They may have been attached to a wooden handle which of course has long since rotted away.
Ancient Romans – with their knowledge of how to work metal and the desire to build – moved shovel design on to be more in keeping with what we use today. Metal and wood pro
