Blocked Storm Pipes

Storm water pipes are commonly blocked by tree roots, dirt and even children’s toys !

Blocked storm pipes can be costly to repair and replace, particularly when the pipes have suffered a lot of damage from tree roots. If tree roots have spread throughout the pipes, entire lines of piping may need to be replaced. If you notice water bubbling from your lawn, or any outside ground area, chances are you have a submerged pipe that is damaged. Once roots have broken into a pipeline, they will simply keep growing and spreading, which could lead to a blockage of the whole pipe. If there are tree roots threatening to break into your pipes, or already have, then it is recommended that the trees are removed or having the pipe repaired/replaced with something stronger.
