Stormwater drains remove unwanted rainwater from your property and are usually connected to the roof of a building via a downpipe. Sewer drains are different and originate from the drains inside your home or business and drain all of your wastewater away and into the government sewerage system using underground pipes. Some of the telltale signs of blocked stormwater drain include:

  • Water pooling around your property
  • Surface grates are not clearing in heavy rain
  • Water is overflowing from your gutters
  • Unusual sounds, like gurgling, from your drains

If you’ve been able to smell sewage 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. You may be able to see a blockage through your drainage pits and stormwater grates. This will need to be cleared straight away by an expert.

What Causes a Blocked Stormwater Drain?

The 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. It could be a storm water drain in backyard or one in the front yard. It doesnt matter where it is. 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 Mr Emergency. We can have somebody out to your property straight away to clear that blocked 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! Mr Emergency can send a blocked drains expert to your location within an hour*.
