Surface water drainage is the process of collecting and directing rainwater away from our buildings to prevent flooding or property damage. Drainage systems are often in place in commercial buildings and housing estates to ensure the effectiveness of surface water removal.
The drainage system comprises a network of underground pipes that capture and transport surface water. The pipes lead to a chamber also known as a manhole. A blockage in the drainage system is a common problem, mainly caused by debris like leaves or grass.
When you think of a drain, what comes to mind is the toilet, bathroom or kitchen sink. However, outside the house, the drain is equally vital for getting rid of wastewater.
An outside drain is different from an inside drain in the sense that it's much larger in size and is vital in removing rainwater and surface water. Blockage of an outside drain can cause significant damage to the property, and it's best to identify and address the issue promptly.
If you notice that the water in the outside drain is not flowing smoothly or there's an unpleasant odor, it's a clear indication that there's a blockage. In some cases, the blockage is visible, and you might notice debris like leaves or grass stuck on the cover of the drain.
If you identify a blockage in your outside drain, the first thing to do is try and remove the debris. Often, a simple and cost-effective solution for a blocked drainage system is cleaning the drain. Here are five ways to unblock an outside drain:
A plunger is a tool that creates suction to help remove the blockage. To begin, place the plunger over the drain, ensuring there is a tight seal. Use force to push and pull the plunger until the blockage moves.
Pouring hot water down the drain can help remove any grease or fat that may be causing the blockage. Boil the water and carefully pour it into the drain.
A drain snake is a tool that helps break down and remove any blockages in the drainage system. Insert the snake into the drain, and twist it around to help loosen the blockage.
Mix equal parts baking soda and vinegar and pour the mixture down the drain. The chemical reaction formed will help break down the blockage, making it easier to remove.
If the blockage cannot be removed using the four methods above, it's best to call the professionals. At Drainage Cumbria, we have the tools and expertise required to clear any drain blockage.
If you are attempting to clear an outside drain, ensure that you do so safely. Wear gloves, and ensure that no hazards like sharp objects pose any danger. If you cannot unblock the drain, do not attempt to use harsh chemicals or force as this might cause further damage.
