Common Drainage Issues We Address

At Mitchell Plumbing & Gas, our experienced plumbers are well-equipped to handle a wide range of drainage issues. The most common issues we address are listed below.

  • Blocked Drains: Over time, drains can become clogged with debris, grease, hair, and other materials, causing water to drain slowly or not at all. Our plumbers use advanced techniques to clear blocked drains quickly and efficiently.
  • Tree Root Intrusion: Tree roots can infiltrate and damage your drainage pipes, leading to blockages and leaks. We utilise CCTV drain cameras to identify tree root intrusion and employ effective methods to remove the roots and repair the damaged pipes.
  • Broken or Collapsed Pipes: Due to age, ground movement, or external pressure, pipes can break or collapse, causing drainage issues and potential property damage. Our team is skilled in identifying and replacing broken or collapsed pipes to restore proper drainage flow.
  • Grease Trap Overflows: In commercial kitchens, grease traps can become overloaded with fat, oil, and grease, resulting in overflows and foul odours. We provide regular grease trap cleaning and maintenance services to prevent overflows and ensure compliance with local regulations.
  • Stormwater Drain Blockages: Leaves, debris, and sediment can accumulate in stormwater drains, causing blockages and potential flooding during heavy rainfall. Our plumbers offer stormwater drain cleaning and maintenance to keep your property's drainage system functioning optimally.

Why Do You Need a Regular Drain Inspection and Maintenance?

Drain inspections and maintenance involve the regular assessment and cleaning of your property's drainage system to ensure its proper functioning and to prevent potential issues. Maintaining an efficient and effective drainage system is crucial for the overall health and safety of your property. By conducting regular drain assessments, including during periods of dry weather, you can proactively identify and address any developing problems before they escalate into unexpected drainage failures, saving you time, money, and inconvenience in the long run.

Why is Maintaining Stormwater Drains Essential?

Stormwater drains are designed to collect and divert rainwater and surface runoff away from your property, directing it into the public drainage system or natural waterways. These drains play a vital role in flood prevention and water management, ensuring that excess water is efficiently removed from your property to prevent damage and maintain a safe environment.

Inadequate maintenance of stormwater drains can lead to severe consequences, such as localised flooding, property damage, and even health risks from pests and waterborne diseases. When stormwater drains become clogged with debris, leaves, or sediment, their capacity to handle water flow is significantly reduced, increasing the likelihood of flooding during heavy rainfall events.

Investing in preventative maintenance for your stormwater drains offers numerous advantages over waiting for emergency repairs. Regular cleaning and inspections help to maintain the efficiency and longevity of your drainage system, reducing the risk of unexpected failures and costly repairs. Additionally, well-maintained stormwater drains contribute to a safer and healthier environment by minimising the potential for pest infestations and water contamination.

To ensure the optimal performance and safety of your stormwater drains, it is essential to engage professional services like those offered by Mitchell Plumbing & Gas. Our experienced team of drainage solution providers in Brisbane possesses the knowledge, skills, and equipment necessary to effectively assess, clean, and maintain your stormwater drains, giving you peace of mind and protecting your property from the detrimental effects of poor drainage maintenance.

What are the Signs of a Poor Functioning Drainage System?

A poorly functioning drainage system can lead to various issues that can compromise the health, safety, and structural integrity of your property. Below are the signs indicating that your drainage system is functioning poorly and may require professional attention.

  • Slow Draining Water: If you notice that water is draining slowly from your sinks, showers, or toilets, it could be a sign of a blockage in your drainage pipes. Slow draining water can be caused by a build-up of debris, grease, or even tree roots that have infiltrated the pipes.
  • Foul Odours: Unpleasant smells emanating from your drains or toilets are a clear indication that there is a problem with your drainage system. These odours can be caused by a build-up of bacteria, mould, or decomposing organic matter within the pipes, indicating a blockage or inadequate ventilation.
  • Gurgling Noises: If you hear gurgling or bubbling sounds coming from your drains or toilets, it could be a sign of a blockage or a malfunctioning vent stack. These noises occur when air is trapped in the pipes, causing water to bubble and gurgle as it tries to pass through the obstruction.
  • Water Backup: If water is backing up into your sinks, showers, or toilets when you flush or drain water, it is a clear sign that there is a significant blockage or damage within your drainage system. Water backup can lead to unsanitary conditions and even cause damage to your property if left unaddressed.
  • Overflowing Gutters and Downpipes: If you notice that your gutters or downpipes are overflowing during rainfall, it could indicate that your stormwater drainage system is clogged or damaged. Overflowing gutters and downpipes can lead to water pooling around your foundation, increasing the risk of structural damage and pest infestations.
