Hurricane Season is Here, Learn how Jetting Storm Drains Can Save You!

Does your Storm Drain Flow as Designed during Heavy Rains?

Storm drains are designed to re-route excessive rain water from streets, parking lots, sidewalks and buildings.  The water disperses underground into the surrounding soil, rivers, creeks or the ocean.  It is important to understand this water is not filtered and dumping hazardous substances into drains is not acceptable. Keeping storm drains flowing as designed can prevent several issues.    

Why is it important to keep storm drains flowing?

Storm drains that are clogged or have obstructions in them often times cannot keep up with heavy rainfalls which can lead to a number of issues, including:

  • Street flooding or flooding to nearby restaurants, hotels, business, etc. 
  • Ruin landscaping, especially near the catch basin
  • Sewer system backup
  • Trash and debris in the yard
  • Damaged sidewalk or driveway due to water erosion

How Jetting Storm Drains Can Help?

Having storm drains jetted with high pressure water helps to remove sediment build-up from the drains and clears the lines.  It can also help remove other common items we tend to find in storm drains, like:

  • Trash
  • Leaves
  • Rocks
  • Food
  • Sticks
  • Balls and other Kids’ Toys

Jetting will leave a storm drain clear of blockages while not damaging the drain itself.  It will allow the drain to function as designed during heavy rainfalls (like rain from a hurricane), thus helping to prevent unnecessary flooding.

customer review

“Our first experience with Dependable Service was even better than expected. Eric came (on time!) to our condo unit to repair a leaking toilet. It would not flush or fill properly. He quickly diagnosed the problem, gave us a detailed estimate, and replaced the items needed to do the job right. Highly recommend these guys. If Eric is available, I would ask for him.” –- Jerry M.
