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.

We always use the best available parts and equipment to ensure your new rain heads are sturdy enough to withstand the next torrential rain.
