Diagnosing a blocked stormwater drain

Where other plumbing issues can be easier to confirm, sometimes it can be difficult to tell if a stormwater drain is blocked. One of the most notable signs of a blockage is gurgling sounds from your drains and a big puddle or pool of water pooling around your property, especially after rain. If the water is running back towards your property, this indicates a blockage. Further, you can also inspect the pattern of the water – if it’s not freely flowing, there’s a high chance an obstruction is present.
