11 Tips To Help You Prepare For The Storm Season

  1. Check your gutters to see if they are leaks or structural damage
  2. Check gutters to see if there are leaves and rubbish that may have been blown in since the last storm season
  3. Check downpipes for blockages

Are you ready for storm season?

Are you ready for storm season?

As we all know in South East Queensland, storm season is fast approaching and if you have ever wondered is there a plumber near me, the answer if YES, Plumbaround!  


We have recently attended a property in North Brisbane where the owner thought the sewerage from the drain was causing a wet patch in the grassed area of their property. 

Upon investigation we found it was a leaking tap that was undetected and was dripping into the down pipes and leaking below the ground into the stormwater line. 

We serviced the tap, cleaned the line, camera’d the line & located the issue. 

The Result …

The stormwater pipe is repaired and is now flowing freely.  The owners will now be ready for storm season & free of a flooding emergency when the rain hits this year.


If you are currently experiencing or previously had overflowing stormwater or sewerage pipe work and flooding on the property and you want to avoid an emergency,

book an inspection with the Plumbaround team today.
