A functional stormwater system is crucial to avoid flooding and storm damage in your community or property. As waste management Sydney and liquid waste removal specialists, the Enviro Waste team has great experience working with stormwater systems.
Essentially, stormwater pits are underground water collection chambers that store water runoff. There are different types and sizes of stormwater pits, including light duty for residential use or heavy-duty. The options best suited to you will depend on your needs and environment.
These pits are not designed to hold runoff water for long periods of time. The idea is that they will only store the water before it can drain into connected stormwater pipes. Hence, a stormwater pit doesn’t need to be extremely large in size, but big enough to hold the water collected from one downpour.
Getting the best out of your stormwater pit
Once installed, a stormwater pit and the associated stormwater drainage system/pipes will function naturally. However, they do need to be regularly assessed and cared for to ensure that no blockages or damage can halt their operation.
Flooding or overflowing runoff water is a strong indication that there may be a problem with your stormwater pit. When you see that the drainage system is not working on your property, you should inspect your stormwater pit as soon as possible to assess whether any parts have broken or become blocked. Even if you haven’t noticed any issues, it is good practice to check your stormwater system before any forecasted downfalls. Matter can accumulate during periods of no rain (as well as after serious rain) and this may impact functionality.
The result of poor or limited stormwater drainage could be devastating for your property, so it’s important that you reduce the likelihood of flooding by managing your stormwater pit well.
