Clogged Storm Drain

Your storm drains funnel rainwater and melted snow and ice away from your property. It is important to frequently visually inspect your storm drains for any obstructions. Unfortunately, they can become clogged with debris including dirt, mud, twigs, plastic bags, and trash. A clogged storm drain can cause expensive damage to your property from backed-up stormwater.

If your storm drain is clogged, we recommend using a trailer-mounted high-pressure hydrojetter instead of a cable machine. The jetter nozzle will blast the pipe with upwards of 20 gallons of water per minute at 4000 psi in a full 360 degrees to thoroughly clean and restore the full capacity of the line. Stubborn clogs and recurring blockages are no match for a hydrojetter. Unlike the cable machine that may just punch a hole in the blockage, a hydrojetter will provide a longer-lasting solution.

Jetting the main line will cost $350, with no hidden fees or taxes1.

Camera Inspection

Depending on the cause of the original blockage, our technician may advise a camera inspection once the line is open and flowing to assess the condition of your pipes. A camera inspection also provides peace of mind that the blockage has been cleared. If the camera inspection reveals any issues with your lines, our technician will then mark the exact location for repair (including depth!).

Knowing the exact condition of your pipes will save you money in the long term by avoiding costly replacements until absolutely necessary. A camera inspection will cost $250, which includes high-resolution digital footage with detailed analysis from our technician and pipe locating and/or marking1.

Other Considerations

It is possible that your outside patio drain flows into a gravel pit (also referred to as a French drain or seepage pit) that has filled up. Try cleaning out any visible debris or mud and then run water to see if the line flows. If the line still does not flow, we can attempt to cable the line for $95. If that is not successful, you may need to install a sump pump or replace the gravel bed. This is not a service we specialize in, but we are happy to recommend a local company that does.
