A healthy stormwater drainage system
In an ideal situation, your stormwater drainage system would efficiently remove rainwater from your home and garden. Quickly moving surface water running from the roof, gutters, and garden drains to prevent flooding and water damage, even in heavy or prolonged rain.
Problems begin to occur if one or more aspects of the stormwater system slow or fail to function effectively. Issues like blocked gutters, garden debris building up in drains, or drain clogs from sediment, leaves or tree roots can lead to flooding even in light rain.
Preventing stormwater drain blockages
Avoiding stormwater pipe and drain clogs is easy with a little bit of preventative plumbing maintenance.
Whether you schedule routine pipe inspections or just book one in when you suspect a problem is developing, a thorough review of your drains is a great idea. Using a specially designed CCTV drain camera our plumbers can get a clear picture of any problem areas which enables us to carry out targetted drain repairs or drain cleaning, saving time and money.
Our plumbing team recommend yearly or twice yearly blocked drain cleaning (depending on the trees and garden on your property) to effectively remove any blockages in the drains. We utilise a high-pressure water jetter to clear the drain of any debris which has built up without using harsh chemicals.
Clear gutters regularly
Keeping gutters clear of leaves prevents debris from being collected in the roof water and travelling down into the stormwater drains. Using gutter guards can limit this effect but they also need to be cleared out regularly for them to be effective.

BLOCKED DRAINS FAQ
Plumbers eel vs water jetters
Blocked drains can be a totally nightmare! The stinking smell, backing up water, slowly draining sinks, and gurgling toilets are just some of the signs of blocked drains. Luckily the drains can be cleared easily with the help of important tools in the arsenal of a plumber like a plumbers eel or water jetter. But which is better to clear a blocked drain?
The ideal method used to clear the drain depends on the cause of the blockage and its location.
Who is responsible for blocked drains?
To find out whose responsibility is it to repair blocked drains - property owner, council or tenant, a plumber should be called to identify the root cause and location of the blockage. If the blocked drains are in your property, it is your responsibility or your tenants.
However, there are a lot of grey areas and there should be ample evidence to pinpoint which party caused the damage. If the blockage is outside your property, your local council is responsible. Contact your local plumber, they can tell you who is responsible for the blocked drains and claim the expenses from the council if needed.
Pipe Relining vs Pipe Patching
There is no one best way to fix a pipe and before your plumber would even consider which method to choose, we need to determine the cause of the problem itself. In some case, blockages can be alleviated by the simple use of a high-pressure jet rodding. In order to repair a pipe with current advanced plumbing techniques, it really depends on the type and extent of the damage to the piping in question.
