Blocked Stormwater from H2O Contractors thumbnail

Blocked Stormwater

Stormwater drainage is quite separate from sewer drainage as a legal requirement. Where the stormwater ends up varies with property age and location. Older homes may have soak pits – holes in the ground filled with large rocks or concrete slabs where local ground drainage is suitable. Eventually leaves etc… will block the ability for soakage and the pit will require maintenance.

Blocked Sewer

Most common sources of sewer blockage issues include fat, roots, dipped pipes and breaks due to subsidence or exterior factors. The list of possible causes is large and drains can have several issues working in combination. Overflows can be a problem to clean up and we generally use biodegradable anticeptic/reodorising agents wherever possible. We can supply wet vacuum units, submersible pumps and driers as required.
