HOW TO KNOW YOUR STORMWATER DRAIN IS BLOCKED
Having a blocked stormwater pipe might seem like a small issue, but it is actually keeping water away from your home’s footing and foundations, thus being an important part of your drainage system. Using the newest CCTV drain inspection technology, our team here at The Plumbing Life Saver can record the vision of your drains before and after our rectification process, utilizing high-pressure water blasters to remove foreign debris, root intrusion, sand and dirt build-up, leaf litter and the odd kids’ tennis ball.
Blocked stormwater drains are a common consequence of extreme weather events, such as rainfall and winds, as well as other seasonal factors like leaf fall. No matter how careful you may be, a drain can get blocked by foreign objects – leaves, stones, sticks, and other debris, especially if they are not regularly cleaned.
In most cases, you may notice some of the following signs that shouldn’t be ignored:
- Water gathering on the pavement
- Water sprouting from downpipes
- Unusual sounds coming from the drains
Should you notice any of the symptoms, get in touch with The Plumbing Life Saver right away. The fact is – the sooner you call, the easier it will be to fix the issue. While it is just a blocked pipe at first, a blocked stormwater drain can cause that pipe to burst and cause damage to the surrounding area. Even though just one part is the issue, it can prevent the entire system from functioning properly.
Always treat clearing blocked stormwater drains as emergencies – and know that you can turn to The Plumbing Life Saver team at any time of the day because we have a professional on-call, ready to arrive at your location.
