What can cause a stormwater pipe to break?
There are a number of reasons why you might require a stormwater pipe repair or replacement.
A few of the common reasons in Melbourne are:
- Tree roots have started to grow into the pipe. The roots will continue to grow down the pipe, and the root intrusion can block the entire stormwater system.
- Thick diameter tree roots are shifting the pipes location causing it to crack allowing roots to enter or squashing the pipe.
- Shifting foundations of a house, building or concrete slab can be more severe as dirt surrounding the foundations can enter the pipe and causes blockages.
- The pipe was squashed under a driveway or crossover. A squashed pipe will cause the stormwater system to block up.
- Heavy rain increases system pressure. An improperly designed stormwater system can cause drains and pits to flood putting excess pressure on the pipes causing them to break. This is increasingly common with older terracotta style pipes.
