How to fix a broken storm drain?
Storm drains nowadays are an indispensable element of any city. They are our great allies for avoiding flooding. Many townspeople underestimate their importance and neglect the condition of storm drains: they throw garbage there, various chemical waste, and foliage in the autumn. Because of this, cities can often suffer from devastating floods. Therefore, to prevent such an outcome of events in your home, it is essential to eliminate the breakdown or blockage of your storm drain immediately. Leave all that chores to our experienced plumbers, who know how to perform high-quality storm drain pipe repair and fix everything in a matter of minutes.
Storm drain cleaning
It is essential to follow your storm drain’s operating rules to avoid all that undesired consequences. According to various investigations, people usually worsen the condition of storm sewage lines by themselves. Therefore, the world is your oyster. And the well-being of your storm drain is not that exception.
Here are a couple of quite vital tips:
- Do not throw any rubbish in your storm drain lines. Many people, of course, most often outside their homes, like to throw garbage down the drain. It can be a variety of packages, cigarette butts and so on. Therefore, it is worth refraining from such actions, both in public and in your precinct.
- Make storm drain cleaning procedures twice a year at least. Few of us would disagree that spring and autumn are some of the most beautiful times of the year. But when nature awakens and when it falls asleep, there is usually a lot of dirt left. Driveway drains, especially in autumn, are seriously affected by this. Therefore, it is worth carrying out general cleaning in early spring and mid-autumn. You can first clean the pipes and other elements of the sewage system from the leaves and then take the hose and rinse everything with water.
If none of the above tips helped you, we advise you to turn to professionals to help you with backing up storm drainage lines. Our guys have special equipment that will help to fix the problem in most cases.
We use various methods, such as mechanical cleaning of backed-up sewers and cleaning storm sewers by the hydrodynamic way:
- Mechanical cleaning of closed-type sewers is necessary in the event of a severe blockage. A long metal cable is inserted into the pipe to destroy the resulting backup.
- Hydrodynamic technology is also frequently used. It involves the use of a high-pressure water jet.
Driveway drain repair – what can accelerate this process?
Very often, problems with sewage can arise due to the inevitable wear and tear of equipment. Unfortunately, many gardeners like to use a variety of chemicals and fertilizers to maximize their yield. Therefore, with the flow of water, various chemicals can enter your rainwater drainage system, which negatively affects the condition of pipes and other parts.
Well, do not forget that nothing in this world lasts forever. Even without the intervention of various chemicals, the material from which the drain is made is prone to wear-off.
Ordinary sand can also cause failures or blockages. If paving slabs are used as a road surface on your site, the likelihood of blockage formation increases many times. Why? The sand on which the tiles are laid is washed out over time and can get into your storm sewer system.
Experts advise taking this problem into account in advance when designing a sewer system. Special sand traps are installed in the system to prevent the accumulation of sand in the sewers. They accumulate sand, which is easy to clean during general cleaning.

Basement drain backup
Many experienced plumbers claim that the culprit of backing up in your basement drain is not usually hiding in your basement drain. And it is 100% true! This problem is most often associated with the entire sewer line of your home.
Well, in the case of the rest sewage line, there are many reasons for its blockage. The most harmless one is a simple rubbish blockage. In your kitchen, it can be caused by food residues, different fats that have entered the drain and interfere with the normal water flow. In the bathroom, hair and other small debris can cause backing up.
In such cases, you can try to cope with the problem yourself, using various chemical agents for cleaning the sewage line. If this method does not help, then we advise you to seek professional help.
Trenchless underground pipe repair
Everything around us is changing rapidly, and plumbing technologies are not that exception. Previously, to fix a pipe, which is deep underground, it was necessary to dig through literally all the ground on the site. Now, the problem can be solved in a “surgical way.”
For troubleshooting, you only need a small hole to access your drain pipe. First, with the help of a CCTV system, a search for the place of failure is carried out. These can be various cracks, holes, and so on. After detecting a breakdown, the technicians thoroughly flush the pipe using modern methods. Then a special “implant” made of durable material is inserted into the tube, eliminating the obstacle. This method is slightly more expensive than the traditional one. But the number of chores that will arise after it is much less.
Drainage system repair
To ensure the excellent performance of any device and system, frequent maintenance and timely troubleshooting are essential.
