Main Causes of a Blocked Storm Water Drain

Tree roots are the major cause of storm water drain blockages. This is because tree roots work their way into the drains for water and nutrients. Although a lot of the tree roots start off small they can grow into large roots and get caught up with leaves and other debris causing a large mass that blocks the storm water drain.

Other causes include foreign objects. For example stones, branches or even small animals  may get into the storm water pipes. Pipes can also be  broken due to age or even been installed incorrectly in the first place.

If you do not regularly clean your gutters, the leaves may also cause a blockage over time. Whatever, the cause of the problem our emergency plumbers will use their expertise to fix it!
