There are a few telltale signs that your stormwater drain has a blockage. A simple sign is that your home’s gutters are overflowing even after you have had your gutters cleaned. If you have cleaned your gutters and the overflowing continues, the problem may lie much deeper down the line, potentially meaning a blocked stormwater drain. If this is the case, then your gutters could be backed up.
Stormwater drains are designed to collect and channel stormwater runoff from impervious surfaces, like sidewalks, streets, and parking lots, to prevent flooding and property damage. However, it is not uncommon for stormwater drains to become clogged with leaves, twigs, dirt, rubbish, and other debris, which can cause flooding and other problems.
Unblocking these pipes without the experience and required tools can be difficult, so you’ll want to call a professional from Star Plus Plumbing. We commonly use a high-pressured water jet, which will dislodge any debris or other blockages in your stormwater drain, leaving it free-flowing and ready to handle the high levels of water drainage it was designed for.
