Advanced Charged Systems for Efficient Stormwater Management

The world of plumbing has always evolved with the demands of contemporary architecture and advanced engineering. Charged stormwater systems, also known as full siphonic systems, are one such innovation that has transformed the way we manage stormwater. At Royal Flush Plumbing, we’ve mastered the intricacies of this state-of-the-art drainage method and are proud to bring its benefits to your doorstep.

What Are Charged Stormwater Systems?

Unlike conventional gravity-based systems that rely heavily on a structural gradient to facilitate drainage, charged systems employ a design that fills the pipes with water, eliminating air pockets. This process generates a ‘charge’ or a siphonic action, which accelerates the speed at which water is drawn from the roof, even in areas with minimal slope.

Common Issues with Charged Stormwater Systems

While their efficiency is commendable, like all plumbing systems, charged stormwater setups come with their unique set of challenges. From blockages to air infiltration, understanding these common issues is the first step in ensuring the system operates smoothly.

Air Infiltration

One of the most frequent problems with charged stormwater systems is the infiltration of air. Since the system relies on creating a siphonic action by filling pipes completely with water, any air infiltration can disrupt this process.

Common Causes:

  • Damaged seals or joints.
  • Improper installation leads to gaps.
  • Air vents that are malfunctioning or improperly positioned.


  • Regular inspection of seals and joints to ensure their integrity.
  • Ensuring that installation follows recommended guidelines to prevent gaps.
  • Checking and maintaining air vents periodically.


Blockages can drastically reduce the efficiency of a charged stormwater system, leading to pooling or overflow.

Common Causes:

  • Accumulation of debris like leaves, dirt, or trash.
  • External factors like root intrusion into the pipeline.
  • Sediment buildup over time.


  • Implementing gutter guards or similar measures to prevent debris from entering the system.
  • Regular flushing of the system to clear accumulated sediments.
  • Inspecting for and addressing root intrusions with root-killing chemicals or physical removal.

Insufficient Pipe Gradient

Although charged systems don’t rely heavily on slope as traditional systems do, a minimal gradient is still essential to initiate the siphonic action.

Common Causes:

  • Incorrect design or installation.
  • Settling or shifting of the ground after installation.


  • Proper system design ensures the necessary gradient.
  • Periodic checks post-installation to account for any ground movement and make necessary adjustments.

Damaged Pipework

Over time, the pipes in a charged stormwater system can get damaged, affecting its performance.

Common Causes:

  • Ground movement or heavy vehicles cause physical stress.
  • Corrosion due to environmental factors.
  • Inferior quality materials were used during installation.


  • Using high-quality, durable piping materials.
  • Proper installation ensures pipes are well-supported and protected.
  • Regular inspections for early detection and repair of damage.

Range of Systems and Equipment We Service

Efficient Drainage: As the system fills up, it creates a suction effect, allowing for rapid and complete water evacuation, and minimizing overflow risks during heavy rainfall.

Space-Saving: Due to their efficiency, charged stormwater pipes can be smaller in diameter, saving precious space, especially in commercial settings.

Flexible Design: These systems allow for greater flexibility in architectural design since they don’t rely on traditional sloping requirements.

I had issues with my toilet drain blocking up at my place of business, Royal Flush came out and saved the day on a Sunday morning before an event I had planned Later on in the evening. I had a chat to Matt about renovating the toilet and adding on an additional toilet and a new shower/bathroom and to my amazement he made this happen and I couldn’t be happier. Royal Flush, nit only provided the plumbing removal and install of this little project….
