Is Your Stormwater Drain Blocked?

Has your stormwater drain been draining slowly? Or maybe it’s begun backing up and overflowing? Looks like you’ve got a blocked stormwater drain! At Metropolitan Plumbing, unblocking stormwater pipes is no problem at all.

It’s essential that your stormwater drains always flow freely. They collect dirt and garden waste, leaves and foliage, and other garden debris, that will eventually create a blockage. It can be particularly difficult to shift when the build-up becomes too expansive.

Plus, blockages will leave you susceptible to flooding and major property damage when anything goes wrong.

At Metropolitan Plumbing we are your blocked drain experts and can pinpoint the location and cause of your drain blockage. We can have it cleaned and cleared with the use of our CCTV camera technology or high powered hydro jet.

If your pipework has been damaged or has collapsed, our skilled plumbers will be able to repair or replace your pipes.

From tree roots to dirt and sludge, our expert team have seen it all. Contact us today for help!

Metropolitan Plumbing Can Unblock Stormwater Pipes

We’ve been in the plumbing industry for over 25 years, so we know a thing or two about blocked stormwater drains and drain clearing.

Our plumbers are all fully licensed and undergo continuous training so we’re well equipped to clear your blocked drains. We only use only the latest, most effective cleaning technology for your blocked stormwater drains.

This most often means the hydro jet drain cleaning machine. With a hose and nozzle system shooting water at high pressure of 5000 psi through the blocked drain, the hydro jet cuts through even the toughest tree roots and sludgy material. Alternatively, we might use an electric drain snake to clear your stormwater drains.

To discover the location and makeup of the blockage, we often call on a CCTV drain camera to inspect your drain for a thorough understanding of what we’ll be dealing with.

FAQ - Every Blocked Stormwater Drain Question, Answered

Want to know a bit more about blocked stormwater drains? We've got you covered.

Stormwater drains are typically connected to your roof via a downpipe. They channel unwanted rainwater from your roof and into a stormwater drain. If this drain becomes blocked, this unwanted water has nowhere to go. This means it'll flood your garden or driveway instead. These blockages need to be cleared by a professional as soon as possible to prevent further damage and costs to you.
Stormwater drains generally become blocked by dirt and debris or tree roots. If there is even the smallest pinhole or tiny crack in your underground pipes even the most minuscule hair-like tree root will find its way in. This root will continue to grow inside your pipes and entwine with anything else being flushed through. It will soon grow to a large mass, blocking your drain and potentially damaging your pipework.
If there is an issue with stormwater drains and flooding on your property, you are responsible. Unless it’s an emergency which may pose a risk to neighbours, most local councils recommend you call a plumber in the first instance. Gutters and street drainage is managed by your local council. Major stormwater outlets and systems are maintained by the likes of SA Water or Melbourne Water.

Trent was brilliant, arrived on time and did a great job replacing our kitchen mixer tap on a Saturday evening after our existing tap fell apart. Hoping we don’t need emergency services again, but would definitely use them again!

Marc - VIC

Metropolitan arrived at my door quickly and promptly. Joel diagnosed a gas leak coming from the fittings to my freestanding cooktop and sorted the issue fast. He had my gas back up and running again in no time.

Adrian - WA

Metropolitan was the first to respond to me as I had a leaking shower. They were quick to send out a plumber within the hour. Jake phoned before arriving and he gave plenty of options. The service was quick and easy.
