Our specialized Sewer & Water Division wants to help our customers understand a little more about sewers and what to look for…
|1. CRACKED PIPES
Tree roots can invade even the smallest cracks in pipes. As the roots grow, so does the size of the cracks. This lets in rainwater. Tree roots can also block the pipes causing sewers to backup and overflow. Cracked pipes have to be repaired or replaced. Careful thought needs to be given to the location of thirsty trees.
2. BROKEN PIPES
Broken pipes can occur in public and private systems. Our Sewer & Water division is responsible for inspecting, maintaining and repairing sewer pipes and down pipes on their land. Broken sewer pipes not only let storm water in, they can also allow untreated waste to enter the soil and create unhealthy conditions. If you suspect broken pipes, have your system inspected by Professional Gutter & Drain.
3. BOUNDARY TRAPS
Many, but not all, properties have a boundary trap. This acts as an inspection point on the sewerage system. It also stops sewer odours from reaching the property. If the boundary trap is set below ground level and it’s lid or concrete rim is damaged, stormwater can get in. There can also be a problem if the vertical riser is cracked.
4. DIRECT CONNECTION
Storm water down pipes are not allowed to be connected to the sewerage system. All water from your roof should be connected to the local councils storm water system. Sometimes direct connection to the sewerage system may seem easier. The effect of doing so is overflows of diluted raw sewage further down the system. This is a major cause of sewer overflows.
5. INSPECTION HOLES
Poorly fitting cracked or broken inspection holes on the mains sewer system can let water into the sewerage system. If you notice any problems with them, please give us a call.
6. LOW-LYING GULLIES
A gully is an open pipe which is covered with a grille and found just outside your building. It is there to release any back flow from blocked sewer pipes and make sure it doesn’t overflow inside the house. If the ground around the gully is built up too high, it can let storm water into the sewerage system. We can lift the gully or lower the ground around it.
