Why Is Your Storm Water Drain Blocked? 

Although storm drains are designed to handle large volumes of rain and groundwater, they will quickly overflow if water flow is restricted. Here are the main reasons why your stormwater drains are blocked: 

Debris Build-Up 

There is so much debris that gets collected from your gutters and yard that ends up in the storm drain. From sediment, dirt, to leaves, the debris build-up can block your drain. Garden debris is also another major cause of a blockage. If you have worked on your garden, collect the leaves, sticks, weeds and throw them away. 

Drained Rubbish 

There are cases when rubbish such as clothes and bottles find their way into open storm drains. When these grates are damaged, rubbish from your house can block your storm drain. Put your trash in the bin and ensure your storm drain grates are in perfect condition.  

Tree Roots 

If you have trees in your yard or around your home, they could be the reason your storm drain is clogged. Tree roots can enter the drainpipe through small cracks or loose joints which will eventually cause a nasty blockage.  

Signs Your Storm Water Drain Needs a Plumber 

The following are important to look out for and will be signs you need to call a plumber immediately. These are the most common signs your stormwater drain is blocked: 

  • Surface grates flooding during heavy rain 
  • Water gushing out of your downpipes 
  • Gurgling sounds coming from your drain 

How We Handle Blocked Storm Drains 

We are here to ensure your rain and groundwater are draining away efficiently. Our technicians can handle all types of blocked storm drains. If your yard is flooding, call us and our team will rush to your place immediately.  

We have diagnostic equipment including HD CCTV drain cameras to help locate the clog faster. These cameras can help tell us what is causing the blockage and where it is inside the pipework. With this information, we will find the best and lasting solution to the problem. 

We use electric eels that can dislodge even the most stubborn storm drain clogs, such as sediment build-up. After clearing the blockage, we will inspect the drain again with the camera to ensure the clog is gone. 

Our team will also help with the prevention of blocked stormwater drains. After identifying the cause, we offer expert advice on how to prevent blockages in the future. This includes installing gutter guards, drain grates, and so on.
