Sewer Repair & Unblocking Stormwater Drains
We repair your sewer system & unblock your stormwater drains
Coffs Harbour residents know what a beautiful tropical area we live in. With the beauty comes heavy rainfall, and this can cause blockages in stormwater and sewer drains. Tree roots can also enter your drainage systems seeking out nutrients and cause your system to back up into your property or home.
Jetty Plumbing understands that this type of blockage needs to be taken care of immediately. We have all the proper equipment to help if your sewer or storm system is blocked. Call Jetty Plumbing if you have any issues with blocked drains of any kind. We are here to help.
A few tips to determine if your stormwater drains are blocked or you are in need of sewer repair.
- Look at your stormwater system when it’s raining. Often there are connections near the ground for your downpipes to join into the stormwater. If you inspect these during rain, the water will be backing up at this connection. Take photos for your plumber or even a video.
- Drain grates are full of debris like leaves, sticks, and rubbish. These grates are on the ground surface, so a quick examination will show you if they’re clogged or not.
- Water is not being drained properly, and perhaps instead coming out of your downpipes.
- If you hear strange sounds coming from your drains, you could have a blockage. Usual strange sounds include rushing water or gurgling and can sometimes even be seen in your drain.
- Check your overflow relief gully. This is the grated gully that is outside your home and there may be a hose tap over it or your kitchen may drain into it. If this is overflowing then this is a sign that you have a blockage in your sewer. Call Jetty Plumbing for assistance.
- If you have found a blockage in your sewer it may be a council problem. Sometimes a council main can back up. If you have a sewer blockage call council to make sure it’s not on their end first.
