What’s Blocking My Stormwater Drain?
There could be any number of things blocking your stormwater drain, from a tree root to a general build-up of grime and debris. Regardless of what it is, our expert plumbers can identify the cause and unblock your drain. We have a range of tools designed to unblock drains and keep them that way. Using CCTV drain cameras we can identify the cause of the blockage quickly, and work out exactly where it is. Then with high pressure water jets we cut through roots, grime, dirt, sediment and debris to clear out the drain and ensure it stays that way for a long time. Some of the common causes of drain blockages include:
Objects and Debris
Over time some stormwater drains can become clogged with sticks, stones, dirt, leaves and garbage that ends up in gutters. Our plumbers can clear this debris fast and ensure blockages happen less.
General Lack of Maintenance
Keeping your home’s gutters clear of leaves and sticks is not only important for bushfire season, but will keep that debris out of your stormwater drains and prevent blockages.
Broken or Damaged Pipes
A broken pipe can quickly cause a blockage if left unfixed. If the pipes have degraded to the point of collapse or have been broken externally, our plumbers can get them fixed fast.
Bad Installations or Repairs
If a previous plumber has done a bad job, this can manifest as a blocked drain. Collapsed pipes, misaligned plumbing, bad joints and more can all cause debris that would normally pass through to catch and cause a blockage.
Most storm drain blockages are caused by tree roots breaking in. Roots are drawn to the water in the pipes, breaking through and causing dirt and other debris to mix in.
Calcium and minerals can buildup in storm drains as water flows through, closing off the pipe over time and making it easier for debris to build up and cause a blockage.
