Stormwater pipe repair / upgrade

Posted 5 hours ago

We have old clay pipes collecting the stormwater from our property, and after investigating why our gutters were backing up, I've discovered a broken section of pipe and tree roots inside.

Shift PVC down pipe

Posted 9 hours ago

I have a IPLEX PVC drain pipe (roof stormwater) I want shifted to outside underneath my deck. Currently it’s inside under my house. (Head height) I have lifted the deck timber so there’s room between the joists. Can more than likely use 90% of the pipe that’s there as the length is the same but will probably need a new bend and T junction to meet another pipe coming from elsewhere. Probably a few hours work. No more.
