I cannot understate the importance of keeping stormwater drains and stormwater pipes and pits around your home or business clear of dirt and debris and now that most of our deciduous trees have lost their leaves for the autumn its a good time to clear them from your gutters, downpipes and stormwater pits and drains.
This image shows a small stormwater pit that collects water from around a well known harbourside cafe in Sydney.
The last week in May 2011 brought record breaking rainfall in Sydney.
These cafe owners were flooded and sustained lots of water damage, simply because this little drain was not kept clear and the drains flowing.
Simple maintenance can prevent these kind of floods.
If you have stormwater drains like this and need help to keep them clear and clean, then it sounds like a job for The Lone Drainer And Pronto.
