Rain heads are a simple, effective solution to roof flooding

Roof water management isn’t a great mystery. On an ideal day, rain flows off your roof and into your gutters, which carry the water laterally to the downpipes and down into the sewer. That’s an ideal day. But heavy rains and leaf debris can quickly overwhelm your gutters, forcing water to overflow and leak through your roof and into your home. Rain heads stop that from happening.

Rain heads are junctions that connect the lateral gutter to the vertical downpipe. The purpose of the rain head is to slow down heavy-flowing rainwater and to filter out debris that could clog your downpipe. Keeping your rain heads clean is critical for safe and effective stormwater management.

Inner City Plumbing is the preferred roof plumber for countless Melbourne homeowners, site managers and builders. We can install, repair and service your downpipes to ensure your property is well-protected during Melbourne’s heavy downpours.

Our service areas

‘Inner City Plumbing’ seemed like a great name when we first started our business. It’s clean, direct and literal. Of course, we didn’t quite realise just how much we’d grow over the following decades.

Today, we proudly service over 170 suburbs across Melbourne.

While we’re still headquartered in the inner-city suburbs, we can still guarantee our one-hour emergency response time no matter how far out you are.

Frequently asked questions

Yes, rain heads are required for gutters and stormwater systems. They help to:

  • Filter leaves, twigs and other detritus out of the gutter
  • Unblock gutters and downpipes
  • Prevent deeper blockages
  • Prevent overflow and leaks

You can also install a rain head on the collection pipe of your water tank to prevent debris, animals and insects from getting into your tank.

Gutters, downpipes and rain heads are all components of your roof’s water management system.

  • Gutters travel laterally along the side of the roof. They feed water into the rain head.
  • Rain heads, installed at the ends of gutters, filter rainwater before it enters the downpipe.
  • Downpipes travel vertically along the walls of your building and carry water into the sewers.

Get your rain heads serviced ASAP

Our friendly team is happy to help schedule a yearly servicing appointment to ensure your rain heads, gutters, and downpipes are always in order. Call us 24/7 to organise.
