What No One Tells You About Drainage Systems

Water runoff management requires adequate drainage systems. Does your property have excess water that doesn’t seem to go anywhere, especially after it rains? You might not have the right drainage system in place. Here’s what you need to know.

Surface Drainage

Whether at your home or a commercial property, you need to be able to manage water. Standing water poses many risks, including slip hazards, property damage, and breeding grounds for pests such as mosquitoes. It can be on driveways, walkways, or even in landscaped areas. Surface drain systems take the excess water and runoff and direct it from the surface to underground pipes and catch basins.

The Right Size Drainage System

Something not everyone understands is how to determine the size of the drains required and the size of the catch basins. Before installation, it’s critical to determine the amount of water for the right materials, sizing, and installation.

Types of Drains

There are two primary drain types are used depending on the location and need at your property. They include:

  • Catch basins – this type of drainage allows excess water that gathers in landscaped areas to move away from the foundation as well as the flowers, trees, shrubs, and grass to protect them from damage.
  • Channel drains – installed in hard surfaces instead of in soil and dirt, channel drains help remove water in places like driveways, patios, and walkways.

Whatever your drainage needs, it’s critical to hire the right professional. The team at W.P. Law, Inc. has the knowledge and experience to get the job done right. Contact them today.
