Sewer Pipes and Stormwater Drainage

Do you have sewer pipe or stormwater drainage problems?

Fortunately for most of us, we don't normally need to worry about stormwater drains and sewer pipes. In fact, most people don't realise that a sewer system and stormwater drain system are not the same and have completely separate functions. All the water from our home sinks, toilets, and showers flow into the sewage system where it is treated and filtered for any pollution. All the water that flows down our driveways, gutters, and streets goes into stormwater and into lakes, rivers, and eventually the ocean.

When they are working they are essentially invisible to the general population, however, when something goes wrong they quickly become important. Whether you have a blocked stormwater drain or sewer pipe, it is a hassle you can do without.

Stormwater drainage and sewer pipe damage

Stormwater drainage and sewage systems are designed to protect public health and the local environment by preventing sewage and stormwater backing up into homes and properties. Blocked stormwater drainage and sewer pipes can become particularly hazardous in wet weather, in particular when high volumes of rainfall - as experienced in South East Queensland most summers.

Along with flood water, the problem is increased through faults in pipes or illegal connections that may result in exceeding the capacity of the system and subsequent overflows. Overflows can still happen in dry weather due to blocked stormwater drains or blocked sewer pipes.

Sewage overflows can also be the result of:

  • cracked pipes and tree root intrusion
  • collapsed or broken pipes
  • boundary traps damaged or cracked
  • direct connections (not allowed)
  • poorly fitted inspection holes
  • low-lying gullies
