The Difference Between A Sewer & Stormwater System
Sewer & Stormwater Systems. Wondering what the difference is? We’ve got your back!
Check out all you need to know about them by reading on.
A Sewer System is made up of all the pipes from your bathroom, kitchen and laundry. The function of these pipes is to transfer sewerage to waste facilities where it is then filtered and treated.
A Stormwater System is made up of the gutters, downpipes, pits and drains that collect and carry rainwater away from your property. Unlike sewer water, this water is not treated and goes directly into local water catchments.
A LITTLE BIT MORE TO KNOW . . .
Both sewer and stormwater systems are in constant use and are critical to the functionality within and outside your home. The ultimate efficiency of these systems is only reached when they are clear and clean.
When they contain forms of debris, blockages have a higher chance of occuring and as a result, water may be unable to drain from within your home or outside your home. You may be able to smell bad odours from your sewer drains or you may even hear gurgling noises from the pipes. If you experience any of these unpleasant things, it’s likely your sewer and stormwater systems need to be inspected and there are problems that need to be addressed.
Here at Worboys we have a range of equipment such as cables, sewer machines and jet pressure units that are used to remove blockages within the sewer and stormwater systems. If further investigations are required we also have CCTV specialists to diagnose and locate the exact problem.
