What Causes Stormwater Pipe Breakage?

Damaged stormwater pipes can happen for many reasons, some of which include:

  • Tree Roots – If trees grow near your stormwater and other pipes, they will likely try to absorb water and get nutrients from your drainage system. As a result, they most commonly break the pipe.
  • Corrosion – Concrete and terracotta drains are prone to corrosion, spreading throughout the piping to cause cracks and water contamination.
  • Debris – Leaves, dirt, branches, twigs, plastics, and other foreign materials can block your drains and create havoc that needs the intervention of an experienced plumber.

Replace Old Pipes for Better Stormwater Drainage

Prior to 1980, a lot of pipes were made from heavy clay and concrete to carry stormwater and sewage waste. But trees love them and they are prone to flaking and failing under stress. Compared to the sturdiness of PVC, they are damaged more easily.

While clay and concrete pipes can last many years, if they are damaged and need replacing, it is usually completed with PVC.

You don’t need to wait until there is a problem to take proper care of your pipes and their fittings. Aside from using our drain cleaning services to keep them clear, you can take action to ensure your stormwater pipe remains intact, including the following:

  • Rake your leaves – Ensure your yard is free from fallen leaves and twigs, especially near your drainage system. Always check the area after heavy rainfall and remove any debris.
  • Clean your gutters – It’s easy to overlook your gutters, but regularly cleaning them helps protect your drainage systems. Ensure cleaning of your gutters takes place once or twice a year.
  • Appropriate Waste Management – Ensure that you have an appropriate recycling or disposal plan for your excess renovation or building supplies. Concrete, paint, oil, chemicals or building rubble are a huge culprit to blocked drains.
  • Obtain new gutters – Aside from keeping them clean, if they’re old and damaged, we recommend using our gutter services to protect your property from further damage, including your stormwater pipes.

If you require our services for your drainage system, we welcome you to contact our team by calling (02) 62 889 929 or by requesting a quote.

The team at Canberra Plumbing and Drains can help any home or business that needs to fix or replace pipes or get help with other plumbing problems. We have trained, certified technicians and an honest reputation for doing great work every time.

Is cleaning the pipes enough to avoid repair or replacement?

The combined effort of maintaining your pipes and keeping debris from the area is enough to keep them in good shape and free from damage. It’s essential to note that other factors can cause damage, like tree roots, as we’ve mentioned before, excess dirt and debris from a storm. 

The best course of action is to get them professionally cleaned by our plumbers once or twice a year, remove any leaves and debris after heavy rain, and call our team at the first sign of any concern to avoid needing replacement or repair.
