Why do the stormwater and sewer drains become blocked?
The stormwater drain consists of a downpipe, connected to the roof of a building, and a series of ground pipes, that transport water from the roof and grounds of your property to either the street gutter or another designated sight to be absorbed. The sewer drain also removes unwanted waste water from your property, but does so from your toilet, sink, shower and other drains, directing that waste water into the city’s sewage system. The blocked drain plumbers from Jim’s Plumbing have everything they need to effectively and efficiently clear and clean your blocked sewer drains or blocked stormwater drains, getting that water back on track and away from your property like they’re meant to.
Blockages to the stormwater and sewer drains can happen for a number of reasons. If you can smell sewerage in your garden, you’ve been getting water flooding in your outdoor spaces or your pavers are loose or cracking for no reason, or water is backing up in your drains there’s a good chance one of these things is happening.
- Build up of dirt, leaves – happening over time, leaves, dirt and other garden and households wastes can join with the normal waste already in your drains to cause a blocked stormwater drain or blocked sewer drain. This can happen even if your drains are cared for, especially after substantial rain, and can be very difficult to clear. You’ll need to contact a blocked drains expert from Jim’s Plumbing, who’ll be around to your home or office in no time at all to clear those tough drain blockages with a minimum of fuss.
- Tree root invasion – tree roots cause up to 95% of sewer and stormwater drain blockages. A trees roots can grow up to two and half times the size of a trees branches and are constantly searching the ground from water and nutrients which is easily found within our underground pipe networks. If there is even the smallest crack in a pipe a tree root will easily find its way in and continue to grow, mixing with other dirt, leaves and debris being flushed through the pipes to soon form a large fibrous mass – completely blocking or damaging the pipe. The drain plumbers from Jim’s Plumbing will often use the high powered hydro-jet if a stubborn tree root blockage is the cause of your blocked sewer or stormwater drain.
- Pipe damage – pipes can easily become damaged, stubborn blockages can break through the pipe material, ground movements and temperature fluctuations can cause the pipes to become misaligned, the pipes may become corroded due to age or incorrect pipe installation will all cause blocked stormwater or sewer drains. With the use of a CCTV drain camera inspection your attending blocked drain plumber from Jim’s will accurately be able to determine the exact location and cause of your drain blockage to provide you with the best, most cost effective, method to clear the blockage.
