Do storm water drains and sewer drains connect to each other under ground? Probably one of the biggest myths amongst the public is that storm water and sewer drains all run into the same pipe under ground and when ever we have a huge storm everyone's sewer drains clog. If your sewer drain does happen to back up at the same time as a severe weather storm the chances are its just a coincidence, unless something un toward is going on at your property.
Technically speaking your storm water and sewer drains are meant to run in separate pipe systems, but occasionally you will come across a situation where a storm water pipe is connected to a sewer drain (very bad practice, not to mention illegal).
There are many ways to establish if someone has done the wrong thing at your home and connected your storm water drains to your sewer pipes:
At Mayfair Plumbing and Gasfitting we always advise that if you have suspicions about the installation of your drainage systems around your home always engage the services of a licensed master plumber and have your drains inspected thoroughly giving you the piece of mind that one day you wont have a disaster on your hands.
