Stormwater can be a fact of life, especially if you’re living on the Gold Coast. As this has the potential to run off into our waterways, it is closely regulated by authorities making it imperative for homes and businesses to ensure this water drains off into the appropriate place.

On the Gold Coast in particular, runoff can be a serious issue due to the fact that water tanks are often situated on hard surfaces such as roads and driveways. Having a lot of vegetation, however, can help soak up some of this water. In an ideal world, stormwater should go from your pipes straight into a storm drain but sometimes issues can occur that interfere with this process, leading to massive headaches down the track.

How can you tell if your stormwater pipe has been damaged?

There are a few things that can help identify an issue with your pipes, including:

– Downpipes that appear blocked
– Gutter overflow
– Increase in ground/surface water present
