What Are Stormwater Pits?
A stormwater pit is a concrete compartment that is located within the ground. When water accumulates from ground level, it goes to the stormwater pit from various pipes or inlets. Once the water has been received, it is sent to a pipe that rids the pit in an appropriate manner of time.
There are numerous types of stormwater pits, such as inlet pits and junction pits. Our expert technicians can provide you with efficient installation services to get your stormwater pit set up successfully.

One thing to consider when installing new stormwater pits is whether the stormwater pit will be custom-made or modular. Either unit can do well for a specific area, but getting a unit that suits your needs is always critical to the functionality of the system.
Another thing to consider is requirements that may be necessary for the system. Stormwater drains may need a specific type of stormwater pit. Therefore, a custom-made unit would be required.
Also, consider the location of the stormwater pit. People can assume that a unit can be placed anywhere within a property, but that is not the case. A stormwater pit must be placed in an area that will receive water in a brief matter of time. Not only that, but a unit needs to be connected to pipes that lead out to stormwater drains.
Additionally, a stormwater pit needs to be set up to code. Be sure that the professional who is installing the unit is aware of the rules and regulations concerning the installation of a stormwater pit.
Finally, be sure to go with professionals who are experienced in working with stormwater pits. Our professionals understand the unique needs of Penrith homeowners and are able to install a stormwater pit quickly and efficiently.
Common Sewer Line Problems
The main culprit of sewer line problems are tree roots. If you have large trees near your sewer line, roots may start to penetrate the line. For tree roots, pipes are a prime source of water. Once the roots are fully in the pipe, they create blockages and further damage your pipe.
Other causes of sewer line problems involve blockage that result from objects that become lodged in the pipes, general deterioration, and ground that shifts.
Signs Your Sewer Line Needs Repair
- Trouble Flushing: The main sign that your sewer line has problems is that if your toilet bowl fails to fully refill after flushing, or if you hear a gurgling sound followed by the appearance of backflow. These are usually indications that something is blocking your sewer line, like a tree root or other debris.
- Slow Drainage: Water that takes a long time to drain can signal a sewer line problem. It also signals a blockage in the pipe that is preventing the water from flowing.
- Unusual Odor: If a sewer line is completely broken, then there is usually an odor in the air. Broken piping allows for the sewage water to escape. This in turn creates odors and flooding in and around your home.
