Complexities with Drain Repairs
Have you got an underground drain that needs repairing?
There are many signs that this may be the case including, standing water in your lawn, concrete or ground surface. This is an indication that you have quite a serious leak on your hands. Underground pipes will either be part of your sewer system or stormwater system. As you can imagine, stormwater burst are typically a bit nicer to work with for both yourself and us, but hey, we will always lend a helping hand!
Unfortunately, no matter the circumstances, we are never 100% certain what is going on underground. We may initially think we have a straightforward job on our hands, but start our dig up and find it’s much like a Pandora’s box!

- Foreign materials being flushed down the toilet, such as face wipes, paper towel, sanitary items and nappies (yes people DO put these down the toilet. NO you are not supposed to!)
- Broken pipes

STORMWATER PIPES CAN BURST CAUSED BY:
- Tropical like rains and storms overwhelming the system
- Gutters & Downpipes full of debris, not allowing them to function efficiently.
