What is a Blocked Stormwater or Sewer Drain?
Stormwater drains remove unwanted rainwater from your property and are usually connected to the roof of a building via a downpipe. Sewer drains originate from the drains inside your home or business and drains all of your wastewater away and into the government sewerage system using underground pipes. If you’ve been able to smell sewerage when you’re outside or you’ve been having flooding in your garden, driveway or other outdoor areas, there’s a very high chance you’ve got a blocked stormwater drain or a blocked sewer drain. This needs to be cleared straight away by an expert.
What Causes a Blocked Stormwater Drain?
Stormwater and sewer drains generally become blocked by one or both of two things. These are:
- Build-up of Dirt and Debris
Any drain is susceptible to blockages no matter how well it’s looked after. Stormwater and sewer drains are no exception. Outside, there are many materials such as dirt, leaves and garden waste. These can enter your stormwater or sewer drains and prevent the flow of stormwater or sewerage leaving your property. When this happens, it’s essential to contact the blocked drain experts at Metropolitan Plumbing. We can have somebody out to your property straight away to clear that blocked sewer or stormwater drain.
- Invading Tree Roots
Often coming in through already present cracks, tree roots will quickly grow and intertwine with other leaves and debris in your pipes. This forms a mass large enough to block water flow on your stormwater and sewer drains. Those irritating tree roots are no match for us, though! Metropolitan Plumbing can send a blocked drains expert to your location within an hour*.
