Storm Water Leak Detection Tweed Heads
Experts In Leak Detection
Is your property surrounded by puddles every time it rains? You most likely have a leaking storm water pipe. At Tweed Heads Leak Detection, our team of licensed plumbers in the Northern Rivers can ensure any leaks are detected and repaired efficiently.
Proper draining is crucial for any property, which is why stormwater drains and pipes are an essential part of your plumbing system. These systems are installed to protect your home or business when there are torrential downfalls, helping reduce the risk of flooding and potential damage to your property.
Your stormwater pipe is part of a larger network, connecting to council stormwater networks so that the entire Tweed Heads region can effectively drain away water when there are large storms or long periods of rain. While the council pipes and drains are the responsibility of the council, your individual stormwater pipes are your obligation to maintain and repair.
Using state-of-the-art equipment, we can provide CCTV drain inspections, utilise thermal imaging or conduct air and hydro water leak testing to determine if a leaking storm water pipe is the culprit behind rainy day floods.

What Are The Signs Of A Leaking Storm Water Pipe?
Apart from some obvious flooding issues around your property, other signs of a leaking storm water pipe include:
How do I know if my stormwater pipe is faulty?
This is a good question, as the pipe is buried underground, so there is no way for you to see if there is a blockage, crack or any other damage.
What you may notice, though, are signs that your stormwater pipe is not functioning correctly. For example, if you are noticing pools of water on your lawn that just won’t go away – even when it is sunny – then you likely have an issue with your underground drainage.
It is vital that you have this inspected by a certified plumber as soon as possible because pooling water that cannot drain away will become a breeding ground for mozzies and potentially termites, which can cause big problems for your health and your home. Get in touch with us today!
How Tweed Heads Leak Detection Will Inspect Your Stormwater Pipe
Our goal is always to minimise the damage to your yard and property while discovering the precise reason why your stormwater pipe is not functioning the way it should.
There are many causes for a failed stormwater drain. Debris like branches, rubbish and leaves might have clogged the pipe, preventing water from flowing. There could be cracks or damage to ageing pipes that prevent the water from draining away. Trees love the moisture in pipes as well, and tree roots are always a major problem. They can infiltrate pipes, block them completely and can even completely crush the pipe itself in a bid to get to the water.
Tweed Heads Leak Detection uses advanced technology to inspect your plumbing. The first step is to use a drain camera, which is a snake-like cable with a CCTV camera on the end, being fed into your stormwater pipe. This way, our team can discover the precise issue and determine a method of repair or replacement.
How Our Team Will Rectify Your Drainage Issues
There are a number of ways that we can fix your stormwater drain without digging up your entire yard. If there is a blockage, in most instances it can be blasted free through hydro-jetting. This is the process of using a high-pressure water stream to dislodge whatever is blocking your pipes.
If there is damage to the pipe itself, repair or replacement will be required. Pipe re-lining is a modern method of repairing your pipe with no digging required. A vinyl, epoxy or silicone sleeve is inserted into the pipe and then inflated. A resin will mould it to your pipe and it will set hard, often creating a pipe that is much stronger than the original one.
If the pipe has been completely crushed or destroyed by tree roots or other factors, that section of the pipe will need to be replaced. Don’t despair, as excavation will still not be required.
