Plumbing Experts has seen it all when it comes to storm drains and blockage issues that have led to flooding and property damage. Our team of technicians recently responded to a business in Delray Beach, FL, that had flooding in their parking lot.
As it turns out, their storm drain – the infrastructure that allows excess rain and ground water to drain from streets, parking lots, sidewalks, etc. – was infiltrated with roots. Our technicians responded to the issue by using state-of-the-art equipment, including a backhoe and vacuum truck, to efficiently remove the roots, as well as clean two catch basins and approximately 200 feet of piping.
It’s important to routinely inspect your storm drains for blockages that impact the flow of water. They commonly get clogged with leaves, mud, sticks, garbage, and as we saw in this case, tree roots. By maintaining your storm drain regularly, you’ll save yourself the stress of repairs. Our technicians at Plumbing Experts specialize in inspections, as well as repairs for both residential and commercial properties.
If you have plant roots blocking drainage lines, debris or other buildup, Plumbing Experts would be happy to clean and unclog your drains. Give us a call at Palm Beach (561) 279-2460 or Broward (954) 786-0477 or contact us here.
