6 things you should know about sewer drain repairs stormwater repairs in Canberra.

  1. Sewer drains block up mainly because they are broken. This allows tree roots to grow into the drain and allows sewer to leak into the surrounding soil. Paper wipes, kitty litter and toys can also result in drains that are so badly blocked they need digging up. Before we suggest digging up a drain, we try to clear it with an electric eel or drain jetter first.
  2. All sewer drain repairs must be done by a fully licensed plumber. Unlicensed stormwater and sewerage drainage repairs can lead to structural damage and much larger problems than you first started with.
  3. All water that you use inside your home goes to the sewerage drainage system and on to the sewerage treatment plant. All rainwater should go to the stormwater drainage system. The rain water flows untreated from our homes via a network of pipes into our creeks, rivers and lakes. Rain water cannot go into the sewerage drainage system as too much fresh water kills the microbes used to treat Canberra’s sewerage.
  4. Always insist that any person undertaking excavations on your property has done the DBYD before they start digging. Otherwise you may end up with a very large repair bill. As the home owner, you may be deemed the head contractor.
  5. Compaction under and around your pipes before backfilling is just as important as using the correct fittings and pipes. If the soil is not compacted under and around the pipe, the pipe will squash under the weight of the soil. This will lead to more broken pipes and blockages.
  6. ICON Water and TAMS have agreed to a standard set of costs with Master Plumbers, ACT. These costs apply to the excavation and repair of drains at certain depths allowing for a trench length of 2m. These rates are based on what are fair and reasonable costs for excavations at these depths. They can be downloaded from ICON and this website.
