We are a country of climate extremes, and it is often said that the only way we break a drought in Australia is with a flood.
There are many reasons why a household drain could overflow and one of them is a downpour of torrential proportions. These don’t happen often, but when they do, the volume of water flowing into all our drainage systems is overwhelming. The water cannot get away fast enough, and all the drains back up.
Sometimes part of the reason for some homes to experience overflowing drains while others do not, especially in older homes, is that the number of down pipes taking water off the roof is inadequate. Installing additional down pipes in proportion to the roof area has been successful in preventing further instances.
Depending on where the drain is located there could be many other causes such as tree roots, foreign objects, food waste and others that would cause a drain to overflow.
The only way to be really sure about the cause is to call a professional.
