Blocked Stormwater Drains Gold Coast

Blocked Stormwater Drains

We can unblock your stormwater drain quickly

These usually present themselves on the Gold Coast during storm season when we get torrential downpours. The most common symptom is homes and backyards flooding as water from the roof isn’t getting down the downpipes and away in the stormwater pipes in the ground out to the kerb or to an easement. We have two common causes of blocked stormwater pipes, one is collapsed or crushed pipework which can be caused by deterioration over time or ground movement.

The other is root intrusions into the pipes. Due to our long dry winters, roots from any plant or tree can go looking for water anywhere and sometimes the easiest place for them is to go through a joint in the stormwater pipework. They slowly but surely wiggle a tendril in and then grow along the length of the pipe searching for water. We recommend having drains inspected annually to avoid a nasty surprise during storm season. Unlike sewers, we would rarely recommend jetting root intrusions in stormwater pipes as it is usually much more cost effective to locate each end of the blocked section of pipework and then dig that section up and replace it.

Heavy Rain Flood

Gutters & Downpipes

These can in themselves be blocked and stop water from getting away.

We recommend regular gutter cleaning and ensuring downpipe bottoms where they connect into the stormwater system are maintained to make sure cracks and breaks are fixed before tree roots or foreign objects can intrude.

Water pooling around the home

We can create drainage solutions to help move water that can pool in areas around the home, down into the stormwater pipework so that boggy backyards or stagnant water sitting next to the house disappear quickly.

This also avoids the possibility of termites being attracted to your home and possible slip hazards. We can help with unblocking your drains as well as all of your plumbing needs!

Stormwater Drain Clearing

If you notice pools of water appearing in your yard for no reason, or water leaking into your home, your storm water drains will need inspecting and may require clearing, repair or replacement.

Stormwater problems are often caused by:

  • Drains being dislodged due to ground movement (eg landscaping)
  • Thirsty tree roots searching for a drink during summer
  • Down pipes becoming blocked with tree litter

Sometimes the evidence is visible (especially after heavy rain), and a quick inspection will reveal:

  • Pools of water appearing in your yard
  • Water leaking into the house from your roof
  • Water bubbling out of your down pipe
  • Overflowing gutters

What Are Your Options?

Blockages caused by tree roots finding their way into storm water or sewer, can very rarely be cleared by using a high powered water jetter, then applying a root treatment to prevent them returning.

The longer that tree roots are allowed to grow, the more damage they can cause. If they have already cracked your storm water drains, clearing them will not be enough. The drains may require digging up and repairing or even replacing.

Whatever the cause, it’s more economical to get it fixed straight away by a reputable Gold Coast plumber who specialises in drain clearing services and storm water inspections.

If your bathroom seems to suffer from sewer smells every once in a while, but doesn’t show signs of any blockages, you may benefit from fitting a device in your floor waste that prevents sewer smells from travelling back up into the room. If you have a consistently unpleasant odour coming from your drains, call a plumber
