What are Foundation Drains or Landscaping Drains? We are often asked this question several times a day.
Foundation Drains or Landscaping Drains are rain gutter drains that go into the foundation or under the landscaping and drain out to the street or back area of a yard.
These types of drains can be found on commercial buildings, businesses and homes. It is very important to keep the dirt, gunk, and build up out of the foundation part of the drain.
The reason for this is because it can be very difficult to clean and can be a very costly problem, if the foundation drain was broken or damaged and not draining properly. The water could back up the drain and also cause other damage such as roof leaks.
If you have foundation drains, it is very important to keep the rain gutters clear of gunk and to keep the gunk away from the foundation part of the drain. When cleaning, it is very important to check that there is nothing being flushed into the foundation part of the drain.
High pressure is used to flush the foundation drains. It is important to have a good steady strong flow coming out the exit hole of the drain. If the drain is not draining properly, high pressure can be used to trouble shoot and find where the back up is clogged and break it free with the water pressure and force it out the drain.
This is just another good reason to have a professional clean your rain gutters. Using high pressure water is one of the best ways to trouble shoot and find problems with foundation drains.
There are many types of rain gutters and different types of drains. Flat roof drains are very common on commercial properties. It is very important to keep the flat roof drain clear and clean.
On flat roofs when the drain starts to get clogged, the roof will collect water and start to pool on the top of the roof. It is important to keep these rain gutter drains clean and clear so the roof does not collect water.
Just picture if you had a swimning pool of water on the top of your roof. Now picture the weight of that water being on your roof.
Here are examples of several different shapes and colors of commercial flat roof drains.
Commercial drains can wind around the building horizontally or may also be vertical. Most commercial flat rain gutter drains are not foundation drains. Keeping your rain gutters clean will help improve the look of your building or business.
