Storm Water Drain Cleaning

Storm Water Drains

Your home’s storm water drainage system is essential for preventing water from accumulating on your property in the event of heavy rainfall. It consists of a downpipe from your roof, which transports excess water to a series of underground pipes connected to your street’s guttering.

This system is important for minimising the damage that can potentially result from water pooling around your house and yard, as well as nearby areas such as footpaths and roads. Without it, these zones would be prone to flooding after sudden, heavy inflows of water.

Blocked storm water drains

Storm water drains are designed to funnel excess water away from your property, so if you’ve noticed pools of water collecting around your house or yard, there’s a good chance you’ve got a blockage on your hands.

A blocked storm drain can be traced to a number of possible causes. After storms or heavy rain, a build-up of leaves, dirt and other organic debris can leave your storm water drain clogged. Tree roots are another common cause of blockages, intruding into the underground pipes via small cracks and weak points. Damaged (misaligned, broken or corroded) pipes enable this to occur, while also undermining the ability of the pipes to channel water effectively.

If the blockage is not dealt with, it is unlikely to dislodge of its own accord, and chances are it will become worse. Over time, this increases the likelihood of events such as flooding and erosion on your property and in the surrounding area. This, in turn, can lead to costly damage, not to mention creating a serious safety hazard.

Storm water drainage solutions

While there are numerous ‘tips and tricks’ out there for dealing with blocked stormwater drains, the job is best left to the professionals if you want lasting and reliable results. Drainpro has a number of cutting-edge tools and techniques to unblock stormwater drain systems.

CCTV camera technology allows us to investigate your storm water pipes and discover what’s blocking them, without the need to engage in costly excavations before these are strictly necessary. This is a highly efficient means of diagnosing storm drain problems, and helps keep your bill to a minimum without sacrificing accuracy.

Once the location and nature of the blockage has been identified, we’ll clear it from the system. This may involve high pressure water jet cleaning, which is a highly effective means of dislodging foreign matter from pipes. We’re fully equipped to carry this out using state-of-the-art equipment. In the case of damaged pipes, these can be repaired or replaced as necessary.
