Call Mr Plumber for Unblocking Residential and Commercial Stormwater Drains

Blocked Stormwater Drains Melbourne

Mr Plumber has seen it all when it comes to blocked stormwater drains in Melbourne. Drains can be blocked by a number of things. Often the blockage is not in the actual drain itself, but there is an overlooked reason for the blockage. Gutters can be blocked by leaves or there might be silt blocking pipes that cause water to run off into lawns and pathways instead of through drainage systems.

Stormwater drains can be blocked directly by silt, leaves, twigs or other rubbish. Sometimes a lot of dirt, silt and rubbish can build up in a drainage system that has never been blocked -- and then after a sudden downpour all that debris along the drainage line can collect at one point, clog the drainage system and cause flooding in the surrounding area.

Unblocking Stormwater Drains

Sometimes the cause of a blocked stormwater drain is obvious. You can see leaves, sticks  or silt clearly blocking the flow of the drain. In such a case, a bit of shoveling will usually be all that's needed for unblocking stormwater drains. If the build up is only silt, you might try prodding the building with a running hose so that it releases and flows freely down the drainage system. If you can't get the drain unblocked with a hose, give Mr Plumber a call. We have specialised tools and high pressure equipment.

Cleaning Stormwater Drains

For the proper cleaning of stormwater drains, professional plumbing equipment is required for the best results. If there is any residue or build up left on the walls of the drains or pipes, this can quickly build up again causing further blockages. To have your stormwater drains cleaned properly and professionally, call Mr Plumber.

Clearing Blocked Stormwater Drains

If clearing blocked stormwater drains yourself, care should be taken. Blocked stormwater drains can become home to insects and rodents. The water can often be stagnant and unclean. Before clearing blocked stormwater drains, be sure to use protective gear such as gloves and masks.
