Overflowing Stormwater Downpipes

13th May 2020

Josh was called to blocked/overflowing downpipes in a residence in Inverell.

  • Following investigations and hand digging of areas around the property it was identified that large amounts of tree roots were blocking the stormwater drainage line and were unable to be removed by the electric eel.
  • Large amounts of roots masses were removed from various sections throughout stormwater drainage line in backyard.
  • However, excavation of the site was required to replace the stormwater drainage line along driveway, re-connecting to existing stormwater drainage line and the overflow point in backyard.
