Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
It was reported recently that over $100 million worth of financial aid is being distributed to rehabilitate the storm-damaged areas of New South Wales and Queensland due to Tropical Cyclone Oswald. However, a larger amount is necessary as freak storms continue to ravage the regions and cause massive destruction in the living conditions of locals who were thoroughly surprised at how fast flood waters rose and how slowly they subsided. Flooding throughout Queensland and NSW revealed structurally weak and compromised drainage systems that were unable to withstand the intense pressure of increased volumes of water brought by the tropical cyclone and freak storms. This also brought attention to the need to improve Queensland and NSW’s water works and management, and likewise the importance of every household’s responsibility in upholding proper waste disposal practices and keeping their plumbing in effective working condition to help prevent destruction of such magnitude from happening again.
According to Sydney’s premier plumbing service providers, Jedi Plumbing, homeowners should regularly inspect for drain blockage which was determined to be one of the key problems behind the disgusting “overflow” a lot of communities experienced during Oswald. Drain blockages are largely due to improper waste management which clogs pathways, preventing water from flowing directly to their final destinations (which are either the water treatment plants or big bodies of water like rivers, lakes and the ocean). To properly address this problem, Jedi Plumbing has a myriad of solutions for homeowners, from the typical plunger method, to pipe relining, to hydro jetting and so much more.
In addition to flooding, many households also experienced other forms of structurally compromising water leaks. The heavy pounding of sheets of rain paired with the build-up of fallen leaves, branches and other wind-carried elements clogged gutters and downpipes and weakened roof materials.
Gutters and downpipes are designed to catch water from the roof area of a building. With proper connections to storm water drainage, this system removes the water from the property, preventing any damage to the structure. However, if they’re clogged up with fallen leaves (and other elements), water finds other pathways and typically ends up stagnating somewhere. It can then cause structural ruin, as well as create health and safety hazards. To prevent these problems from happening, gutter cleaning is one of the effective solutions Jedi Plumbing recommends; this method gets rid of buildup and makes sure that water flows directly where it should.
