A blocked storm water drain is a plumbing problem that occurs when water cannot flow freely through the gutters, downpipes, and storm water drainage pits that collect rainwater and release it to the storm water drainage system in your street.
The most common causes of a blocked storm water drain are environmental matter like leaves, dirt, pebbles, sand, sticks, and garden covering materials that accumulate in the pipes over time. Other causes include tree roots that invade and damage the pipes, heavy rainfall that overflows the drains, and broken or misaligned pipes that trap debris.
Some signs that indicate you have a blocked storm water drain are:
– Water gurgling or bubbling in your pipes or drains.
– Water draining slowly or not at all from your sinks, showers, toilets, or bathtubs.
– Water coming out of your overflow relief gully (ORG) or inspection opening (IO).
– Bad smells or noises coming from your drains or pipes.
– Cracks or dampness on your walls or floors.
A blocked storm water drain can cause various issues such as:
– Water overflowing from the gutters or pooling around your home, which can lead to flooding and property damage.
– Water backing up onto your roof or seeping into your home, which can cause leaks and water damage to your ceilings, floors, and carpets.
– Water stagnating around your home, which can attract mosquitoes and other pests.
– Water contaminating your storm water drainage system with sewage or rubbish, which can pose health and environmental risks.
Some ways to prevent a blocked storm water drain are:
– Clean your gutters and downpipes regularly to remove any leaves, twigs, or other debris.
– Install gutter guards or leaf filters to prevent debris from entering your pipes.
– Trim any tree branches that hang over your roof or pipes to prevent leaves and roots from falling into your drains.
– Avoid flushing anything other than toilet paper down your toilets or pouring any fats, oils, or grease down your sinks.
– Check your pipes for any cracks, leaks, or misalignments and repair them as soon as possible.
Depending on the severity and location of the blockage, you may be able to unblock a storm water drain yourself by using a plunger, a drain snake, a hose, or a chemical drain cleaner. However, these methods may not be effective or safe for all types of blockages. If you are unsure how to unblock a storm water drain or if you encounter any difficulties, you should call a professional plumber for assistance.
You should call a plumber for a blocked storm water drain as soon as you notice any signs of a blockage or if you cannot unblock it yourself. A plumber will have the tools and expertise to locate and clear the blockage quickly and safely. A plumber will also be able to inspect your pipes and drains for any damage or defects and advise you on how to prevent future blockages.
