Blocked Spouting and Downpipes

By: Laser Plumbing  05-Apr-2012

Now is the time to be thinking about getting your house maintained in preparation for winter.  Dont wait until it gets cold and you have multiple problems on your hands.

With the rain on its way be sure to check that your downpipes and spouting aren’t blocked. Ideally these should be cleaned out at least once a year but ideally late autumn and late spring. Blocked spouting can cause water to come into the house. The backup of water from the blockage usually overflows into eaves and ceiling space causing a lot of damage to both inside and outside your home.

Likewise debris left to rot in gutters and downpipes can cause corrosion which can be expensive to repair or replace. Future proof this problem by having a leafguard fitted to the gutters to stop debris from settling.
