Plumber Frankston South: Overport Road Storm Water Pit

Orbit’s Plumber Somerville received a job for our Frankston Plumber to install a new storm water pit for a customer on Overport road in Frankston South. The customer on the phone explained that they needed some aggie piping installed that ran into a pit as they were trying to correct their water flow problems.

Our Mornington Plumber accompanied by our Mount Eliza Plumber arrived at the job and quickly realized that the best place to position the pit would be near the down pipe. It required less digging as we could find the storm water pipe quickly and save the customer money by getting the job done quicker.

The Customer also required a riser installed for a future down pipe. Our Mornington Peninsula Plumbers started by digging the hole for the large 450mm wide storm water pit. Once this was dug out leaving room for the Mortar base as well the pit was set into position. It is easy to set the pits before drilling the holes for the pipes to enter as you can use the inside of the pit to leave space for the pipe to move back and forth and glue it into position as you are not working with 2 fixed points.

We then set the pipe for the storm water down pipe riser and also installed the pipe that ran under the fence and into an aggie drain. With the help of our Seaford plumber we then set the outlet for the pit. This is the lowest pipe entering the pit so that the water escapes out and into the storm water network. These plumbing products in particular and storm water pits generally act as a way to separate the dirt and muck that runs down the aggie drain from the reasonably clean water as all of the dirt goes to the bottom of the pit and the water runs out of the outlet.

Orbit Plumbing’s Mount Martha Plumber recommends that if you have storm water pits that you should clean them out regularly or you could always call upon Orbit plumbing to do it for you. If you leave it to long then blockages could occur and cause bigger issues.
