How it works

There are many types of drainage systems. They each have different capacities, but well-designed systems should be able to deal with higher than normal capacities. Drainage systems are responsible for keeping your area flood and damage-free during heavy rainfall. Keeping an eye out for any stormwater or sewer problems will ensure that their issues will be fixed ASAP to avoid further damage.

Since drainage systems are supported by gravity, structures built on the lower ground will suffer more issues than those above. But all the same, both can suffer from issues such as cracked or broken pipes, tree roots, illegal system connections, damaged or cracked boundary traps, and more. The problems mentioned, or any of their combinations, with the addition of heavy rainfall, will result in a system reaching capacity. This will cause stormwater and sewage flooding in your homes and properties.

At iSeekplant, you can find stormwater contractors who can fix any of your stormwater and sewer drainage problems. We have a nationwide network of fully equipped contractors and skilled for stormwater and sewer drainage installation and solutions. These contractors also offer drainage and pipelaying, drain camera inspections and pipe repairs. Find a stormwater contractor at iSeekplant today!

Stormwater and Sewer Drainage FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right stormwater drainage for your job

1. What is the difference between a sewer and storm drain?

A sewer drain is likely found inside structures like homes or offices. It is responsible for carrying all the wastes and sewage from said structures towards treatment plants before being discharged. Meanwhile, storm drains are for the stormwaters during or after rainfall. This drainage system carries rainwater from roofs, driveways, footpaths, and roads. Soil, litter, and other organic materials and residues will also flow into stormwater drains. Their most notable difference is that wastewater from sewage drains are treated first before being released while stormwater goes straight to its final destination.

 

2. What is sewer drainage?

The sewer drainage system consists of the underground pipes in your homes. It will carry your waste and other sewerage from your kitchens, bathrooms, sinks, laundry and other plumbing units in your homes. As mentioned, wastewater from sewer drains will flow straight to treatment plants first before being discharged into respective waterways. When there is a leak in your sewer line, it can ramp up your water bill and create potential health hazards and stinky smells. To determine if you have leaking pipes, investigate constant trickles or banging and knocking sounds around your home along with any unusually damp floors or grounds and when you notice an unpleasant smell.

 

3. How does stormwater drainage work?

Traditionally, stormwater drainage systems use conveyancing. The water will be conveyed to discharge points such as rivers, lakes, and oceans from collection areas like houses and streets. Conveyancing will remove most of the water quickly from collection areas. But this method has the highest potential of getting the pipes blocked. Now, there is a water sensitive urban design (WSUD) that will slow the flow of the stormwater runoff. Natural filtration will occur wherein the water will reach the discharge points, cleaned and filtered by soil.

 

4. How do you install a stormwater drain?

Before installing water drains, there are some factors that you must first consider:

  • Check the soil type.
  • The soil must have sufficient depth.
  • Ensure a lower groundwater table for a more effective infiltration.
  • Design the system with regards to its terrain.
  • Check local government regulations.
  • Ensure that there are no illegal sewer and stormwater drains cross-connections.

Here are a few tips for stormwater drainage installation:

  • Use a roof, tarpaulin or an awning to prevent the rain from washing sediments into stormwater.
  • You can divert stormwaters from your driveways, roofs, patios or paths towards vegetated areas around your home. This will filter the stormwater before directing them to the drainage system.
 

5. How much does it cost to install a stormwater or sewer drain?

The cost of installing a stormwater or sewer drain mainly depends on which state you are located in Australia. The average cost is $75/hour, with the lowest at $70/hr and the highest at $77/hr. For those in Victoria, customers will be charged about $70/hr. Those in New South Wales $75/hr is average, and Queensland is the highest at $77/hr. The costs are due to the materials, size and additional services done during the job.
