Blocked Stormwater Drains

It’s rainy season and you notice water pooling around your backyard or on your street? That might be because there is a stormwater blockage. Gardens and roof are connected through pipes which are able to let the water flow into the water table or kerb in the street. Materials that are most commonly found causing a blockage are tree roots, plants and leaves, dirt, and silt build up intruding in the pipes, or how they were installed incorrectly.

Preventions for blockage of storm water drains

If your storm water drain become clogged or blocked, water can flow right back up to your roof, into the ceiling or through the other drains in your household. We have some recommendations in order to prevent blockage of storm water drains that could affect your other drains too. Here is the following list of prevention:

  • Ground foundation. The ground around your building should tilt away from the foundation to let the water flow away from around your property.
  • Keep strange materials out. Do not litter and let heavy materials go down the drain where it’s not supposed to go.
  • Use biodegradable materials. While washing your car or mow the lawn, biodegradable detergent is a better choice to use.
  • Composting. Leaves and grass clippings can be kept as compost ingredients instead of hosing them down the drain.
  • No disposal. Do not dispose leftover paint, insecticides, or other contaminants down the drain as it would clog, or even worse, contaminate the water.
  • No debris. Dispose soil, cement or other debris at the landfill.
  • Clean and manage. Good management and regular cleaning can help prevent any blockage.
