Situated south east of the Swan River and only a short drive to Perth’s City centre is the tranquil suburb of Riverton.
Part of the Canning River runs through Riverton on its north eastern boundary, and Riverton Jetty Park is located on a point stretching out to the river. The Riverton Bridge crosses the Canning here, providing access to either side of the river.
Riverton is a popular suburb with many other parks in the area including Adenia Road Park and Clune Park, along with the Riverton Leisureplex and also one of Western Australia’s most prestigious public high schools – Rossmoyne High School. The surrounding suburbs include Shelley, Willetton, Canning Vale, Wilson, Ferndale and Parkwood.
One of the most common plumbing issues in Riverton is blocked drains, due to it being such a leafy suburb. If you live in the area or surrounds and notice any of the following signs, chances are you have a leaking or blocked drain:
- Your sinks or tubs are slow to drain, or not draining at all
- Your toilets or cisterns are overflowing, backing up or slow to flush
- A drop in water pressure
- Damp patches on your floors, ceilings or walls
- Mould or discolouration on your floors, ceilings or walls
- Warped cupboards
- Water pooling around your property for no apparent reason
- Gurgling sounds from your toilet or other drainage areas in your home
- Pungent smells
If you can pick up on early warning signs of a blocked drain, before it has time to become a disaster, you could save yourself a lot of money along with any unnecessary damage to your property.
Drains become blocked for a variety of reasons with tree roots being the major cause. Tree roots search the ground for nutrients and moisture making you pipes a number one target – if there is the smallest crack in your pipes tree roots will easily infiltrate and soon grow to a large mass, clogging your drains. Other causes of blocked pipes are due to the age of the pipework, temperature fluctuations causing pipes to continually expand and contract, incorrect installation and foreign objects being put into your sinks and toilets such as food scraps, fats and oils, paints, children’s toys and often too much toilet paper.
