Every household, building, or complex has at some stage experienced a blockage. It is important to take note of this occurrence and understand when it becomes your responsibility to get your drain cleared. Blockages can be caused by various reasons, such as hair, grease, food waste, foreign objects, or tree roots. In some cases, blockages can be prevented by doing regular maintenance or being mindful of what goes down the drain. It is always better to be proactive and prevent the problem from worsening and causing damage to your property or the environment.
How Do You Know If A Cape Town Blocked Drain Is Your Responsibility?
Local authorities in Cape Town are responsible for drainage infrastructure since these areas are critical to ensuring that the city’s drainage system functions efficiently and effectively. Their responsibilities generally include:
- Cleaning of public stormwater catch pits
- Cleaning of public stormwater kerbs or gutters along tar roads
- Cleaning and unblocking of public stormwater pipes
- Cleaning of public open concrete canals and ground canals
If these are some of the issues you are experiencing, you can contact the City of Cape Town drainage services here.
However, if you are experiencing blockages that are not part of the public stormwater infrastructure, you may need to take responsibility for resolving the issue. If the drain in question serves your property exclusively and it falls within your property boundary, then it is your responsibility as a homeowner or business owner to unblock any blocked drains. This can be a daunting task, but fortunately, Drain Blasters can help you.
