Why Do Drains Block?

First, it's crucial to acknowledge there are two types of drains on your property, stormwater and sewer pipes.

Your stormwater drain system is made up of underground pipework and downpipes which are connected to your gutters. There are likely other drainage channels, too, located around your driveway or pathways.

They all collect rainwater, providing appropriate irrigation to the home. Without a healthy stormwater system, your home could be at risk of foundational damage as heavy amounts of seep into the soil during winter.

Now, what causes blocked stormwater drains? Well, it's different from what you would find in a sewer pipe, such as toilet paper. Stormwater blockages would be caused by:

  • Tree roots
  • Garden waste such as leaves, dirt and debris
  • Damaged pipes
  • Collapsed pipes
  • Toys or rubbish

While stormwater pipes are designed to handle a lot of water, they can't handle a lot of built up debris. This is why it's always important to keep your garden clean as a large downpour will push leaves, clippings and more into your drains.

Invasive tree roots are the most likely culprit, an unseen enemy which reportedly causes 95 per cent of blockages! The thirsty little suckers just love the moisture and nutrients found within a drain.

Stormwater and Sewer Drain Cleaning

All blocked drain plumbers at Jim’s Plumbing can easily resolve the most difficult clogged drain. And we can even offer pipe relining solutions for added longevity and strength within your stormwater system.

When we're called to a blocked stormwater drain job, our first step will be an inspection. A CCTV drain inspection will allow us to delve deep underground to find out exactly what's gone wrong. Understanding the cause of a blockage will help influence whether we opt for an electric drain cleaning machine or hydro jet drain cleaner.

The hydro jet is truly a modern miracle for removing stubborn clogs.

Using highly pressurised water at a rate of 5000psi, the hydro-jet can easily cut through any roots, slicing them apart. Its versatile nozzle shoots the high pressured jets of water out at various angles, leaving nothing behind. And as it slices apart the roots it also pushes it out of the drain and away from your property.

The hydro jet is unbeatable in the hands of any Jim's Plumbing expert.

Once the hydro jet has cleared the blockage the work doesn't stop. To ensure pipes remain root free we complete a process called pipe relining. This creates an addition, durable inner sleeve to your existing pipework, one that can last for up to 50 years.

It's like a full pipe replacement without having to dig up your yard for blocked stormwater drains.
