Maintenance Tips for Underground Drainage
This entry was posted on January 16, 2020.
Maintaining your underground drainage system is key to ensuring the system stays effective and doesn’t get damaged. Whilst Drain Depot specialises in PVC products that are low maintenance, there are still things you can do that will protect your system for longer.
Checking the alignment of your gutters
A gutter that isn’t aligned can lead to water pooling or overflowing, which could cause damage. Regularly checking that nothing has knocked your gutters out of place is a really simple way to ensure that this kind of incident doesn’t lead to buying replacement products. Try and ensure that your gutter is held securely in place to avoid this kind of incident. If you are installing a new product, get some expert advice to ensure that you’re not at risk of your system being damaged by overgrown tree roots nearby, as this could also cause damage to your pipes.
If you feel like something isn’t quite working with your system, don’t delay! Get a professional to take a look at any potential blockages that might be clogging up your pipes. Whilst PVC products have a plethora of benefits that help in a scenario like this (they’re robust, durable and have a smooth surface so blocks caused by friction are a rarity), it will sometimes be necessary to utilise the help of an expert to ensure that they continue to work to their full potential for longer. To try and reduce blocking, ensure that you refrain from putting food and too much toilet paper down the drains.
Replace Your Drains
If you’re still utilising an old draining system and you’re worried about the effectiveness of it, don’t delay! As a homeowner, you are responsible for the underground drainage at your property and it’s better to update them now before it’s urgent. All you’ll need to do to get started is to inform your local council prior to undertaking work. Check out our range of products today.
