Stormwater drainage systems consisting of stormwater drains and sewer pipes are essential for your home and must work effectively.

A storm drain is also known as a storm sewer system, stormwater line, surface water drain, or stormwater drain. It is a channel or pipe used to carry off rainwater.

On private properties, storm drains collect water from the house’s storm gutters and carry it into a more extensive, city-wide storm drainage system. Street gutters direct rainwater to storm drains at intervals along the sides of roads, just below the sidewalk line.

It can be problematic when stormwater drains become blocked, just like blocked sewer drains, or when heavy rain overwhelms the system. You’ll need to clear blocked drains or cause further damage to your plumbing system and drainage system.

Once you have a blocked stormwater drainage system or overflowing stormwater network, this can be dangerous for the homeowner’s safety and hygienic reasons, as well as the home’s foundation.

Blocked sewer drainage pipes or stormwater systems commonly occur during the rainy seasons. Blocked drains affect the guttering system and roofing. Stormwater drains and channels must be managed to avoid water backup, neighbourhood flooding, and damage to cars and houses.

Blocked Storm Water Drains

Why is My Stormwater Drain Blocked?

Debris can also easily clog a rainwater channel or your stormwater drainage system, causing water to back up and flood areas behind it. As rainwater washes mud, dirt, leaves, and other garden debris into your pipework, the accumulation will disturb the water flow and slowly clog up the pipes.

Tree roots that penetrate the pipework can also eventually cause the drain to block and water to flood. Tree roots obstructing the pipes may be challenging to detect, so have your professional plumber inspect your pipelines for root growth. If you require pipe repair services, our emergency plumbing team can quickly repair pipes and handle any other plumbing issues.

A blocked stormwater system can also lead to problems such as a blocked toilet, sewer pipe, kitchen sink, or shower drain. It would be best to have a local Sydney plumber like Fixed Today for stormwater drainage solutions.

How To Prevent Blocked Stormwater Drains

Blocked stormwater drains in Sydney need a thorough investigation from an experienced, licensed local plumber. However, you can minimise the occurrence of a blocked drain and prevent further damage to your home and stormwater system.

Here are a few tips you can consistently carry out as preventative measures to ensure your drain works effectively all year round and remains clear and blockage-free. Remember that prevention is always the best action for blocked drains on your property. Immediately fix blocked toilets and other pipe blockages. Clean your drains regularly.

Gutter Guards Installation

To prevent any debris from entering your gutters, installing gutter guards, gutter screens, helmets, or covers supposedly to avoid other debris from entering your rain gutters will do the trick and keep drains and pipes clear. The guards will reduce the amount of gutter cleaning you do and save you money in the long term.

Professionals regularly clean your gutters to prevent flooding and other structural damage.

Periodic Stormwater Drains Clearing

You should clean your downpipes and gutters monthly. Removing loose debris, such as leaves and sticks, will create a clear passageway for water flow.

Be mindful of minor blockages and debris build-up.

Keep an eye out, particularly on your downpipes. Look for minor blockages and build-up of debris. Simply flushing with water from your hose will clear any items lodged in your downpipes.

Perform CCTV Camera Drains Inspections

Drains need a CCTV camera inspection to determine the location and cause of blockages and should be inspected by a licensed plumber early to prevent water damage. While at it, request an inspection of tree roots invading your drains and lines.

Know When To Call Your Trusted Plumber

Stormwater Drainage Solutions


Merrylands, Sydney


We located a blockage at the back of the property.


We initially used a high-pressure water jet and camera line to clear the blocked drain. After our investigation, we found that the gully was full and needed to be replaced.

How We Helped

We first cut out the concrete, jackhammered the area, and excavated the pipe. We laid blue metal and supplied and installed a new PVC gully. We then connected the kitchen and the basin. We used our camera to ensure there were no further plumbing problems or blocked pipes.
