How Does a System Work?
While every property is unique and a little different in its ultimate setup, there are some fundamental things that are the same for every rainwater and waste water drainage system. Let’s briefly take a look at how it works. Obviously rainwater and any other type of waste water is gravity-fed.
Generally starting with catchments on the roof, the water runs along the gutters, through downpipes and into the stormwater drainage, which is often comprised of 90mm PVC piping. It’s then sent by gravity out into the street and into the town drainage network. From there it’s eventually dispensed into the waterways or the ocean. Often it’s a similar process with the rainwater that falls on your property.
While some will naturally seep into the ground, on sloping properties it’s often necessary to install a series of drains and grates to catch the overflow and send it into the town stormwater system. This is absolutely necessary if you have a lot of concrete and paving around your home or business.
Other ways to catch rainwater include things like detention tanks and rainwater tanks, where the water can be reused for other purposes. You can read more detailed information about it here

This is one of the most common problems when it comes to rainwater drainage systems. Because much of the system is located outdoors, the incidences of debris build up can be quite high depending on your surroundings. Even cracked and damaged pipes can lead to blockages, as the uneven surface will allow dirt, sticks and grime to catch. Our team of experts are armed with the knowledge and equipment to quickly locate the source of the block and free it.
Why Stormwater Drainage Systems Are Essential
Urbanising new land basically redefines the natural ecosystem. Water cannot soak into the earth like it once did. Plus, when a home or building has been constructed, there are areas where you just don’t want water to either run off to, or build up in. Man made structures do nothing to help the environment absorb stormwater, so systems need to be put in place to handle the run off. Without rainwater catchment systems and funnelling through piping, results could prove catastrophic during bad weather. By law all properties need proper stormwater drainage, carried out by a licensed contractor comprised of qualified plumbers and drainage experts. Think of our team as your very best choice in the local area.
Water Pumps and Pumping Stations
As we’ve established that the runoff of rainwater into the drainage solution depends on gravity, what happens when you have a property that actually slopes away from street level? How does the waste water get out into the Melbourne stormwater system? This is where the installation of pumps and pumping stations comes into effect. An underground basin to act as a catchment for rainwater is built. Within the basin is a float. As the water level rises, so does the float. When the float reaches a certain level, the water pumps kick in and pump the excess water uphill and out into the street. While this will add to the overall cost, it’s often the best solution for properties that slope away from street level. If this is your situation, chat to us about it and we’ll work out the most efficient and cost-effective solution.
