About drainage systems

Before you start working on any sort of drainage system, make sure you plan everything to avoid unwanted surprises.

Things you must do

  • Make sure your gutter is free from any debris like leaves or trash.
  • Check if the gutter or drainage pipe is clogged by any obstacles
  • Avoid water infiltration in your basement by putting gravel along the sides of your house
  • Redirect the flow of water away from the house using “L” shaped elbows.

Things you mustn’t do

  • Clean the gutters and drain pipes irregular, thus letting the danger of clogging appear
  • Try to protect the sides of your house with sand or soil.
  • Let the water flow coming from the drainage pipes drain along the house base.

These simple facts can help you avoid unnecessary time and money consuming problems.
