The water we drink and the water we use to clean ourselves, laundry, dishes and everything else comes from one place – rain.
Rain comes from the skies above and once in a while, we get a mighty Perth storm that sees lots of rainfall. This rain and these storms are essential to replenish our water systems and helps us replenish our thirst, clean ourselves, laundry, dishes and wash away our waste, too.
But enough of a science lesson, because today at Fremantle Plumbing we’ll be looking more at stormwater drains, systems and what Plumber Perth team to rely on to install and fix them.
What are stormwater drains?
Stormwater drains are a crucial part to overall stormwater systems (more on these systems later).
How do they work?
- By bringing rainwater and debris with it to gutters and surface drains away from your home.
Why do they sometimes not work?
- Leaves, soil and other organic materials can get caught in gutters which potentially causes damage, blockages and an overall clogging of stormwater drains.
- Stormwater overflow is not your friend as it could lead to leaks, structural damage and flooding to your home.
At the first sight of something wrong, call a Plumber Perth team to rectify any stormwater hazards or headaches.
What are stormwater systems?
Stormwater systems are a larger part of water storage, separate to sewage systems and water systems and affect the whole local community.
Connected to the sea or other water systems, stormwater comes from rainwater, or river water or creek water if there has been a recent storm caused overflow.
Here’s how to manage and maintain a good stormwater system:
- Avoid cut and fill construction
- It’s cheaper but it alters the topography and results in stormwater collection in unwanted areas.
- Minimise soil erosion
- This can be done with sediment traps or trenches. Planting trees, plants and vegetables help, too.
- Lessen paved or concrete areas, but if unavoidable – ensure good drainage systems are present.
