Last week when the massive storm hit, my gutters overflowed when everything backed up. I lifted up a cover in the driveway to find a massive wad of dirt and junk in the system which I've now removed. I really hope this was the entire problem and I don't need to go deeper.


@mike If it's down the pipe, I have a Gerni pressure cleaner with the drain pipe hose attachment if you want to borrow it (whole setup or just the hose if you already have a Gerni).

@cefiar my main concern is a bit further up the driveway where a large tree has shifted some concrete slabs right next to the drain pipe. If that's got roots into the thing it's going to need more than a high pressure hose ...
