What To Do When Your Drainage System Fails!


Andreas Klippe no responses September 29, 2020

Broken drainage system is one of the reasons why properties get flooded, even when it’s not a heavy downpour.

Checking the drainage system of a house is one way to make sure that the house is secured from any harm that floods can bring. It is often overlooked when searching for a new home. Whether you are looking for a place in an urban or rural area, a well-functioning drainage system is a must.

Every property relies on a drainage system. However, when heavy rains come and the drainage is clogged, it could cause flash floods and backflow that would certainly compromise your property. This blog will show you what to do if ever your drainage system fails.

The ‘Hows’ of Drainage System

It’s all on the universal principle of physics: Gravity.

Directing excess water from the surface to proper water channels is the main purpose of a drainage system>.

In its natural state, excess water would be absorbed by the ground or flow to a lower level. However, in the urban setting, the ground is usually covered by cement or pavement stopping it from absorbing water.

Because the ground is unable to absorb the water on its own, it now must be directed through gutters.

Regular maintenance for drainage systems is needed. If it fails, consequences could be catastrophic.

This results in any surface water to accumulate waste and other matters. Instead of being plain rainwater or run-off, it is now dirtier making it smellier and carrying debris that can cause clogged drainage pipes.

“Flooding, slow draining, as well as filthy smells are few effects of failure to drain surface water.”

This is the reason why an unmaintained drainage system causes a ripple effect on properties above it.

The best way to keep drainage systems up and running is to conduct regular maintenance and repair after the first few years after its installation. Even a properly designed and constructed drainage system, built to last a lifetime, must be maintained on a regular basis. Older properties may need more work.

Choosing and Adding Protection

Investing in drainage maintenance is a vital part of property ownership. However, this isn’t an assurance that overflowing drainage won’t bother you anymore.

Ideally, you should maximize all of your available solutions. A drainage system, on the other hand, should serve as your initial protection against the possibility of flash floods. Finding innovative solutions like barriers for every entry of your property is the wisest solution.

Think about solutions you can use to protect your property, and assure the safety of your family.

Proprietorial Solutions for Flash floods

Let’s face it: your property does not get the assurance of protection from flooding with just the use of a drainage system. The overflowing of water outside your home could lead your property and loved ones to a total danger. That’s why engineers prefer to provide modern solutions to stop the flooding before it costs something expensive.

Choosing a flood protection system shouldn’t be a hassle. You have a wide range of choices best suited for your preferences.

So, whenever you see a rising level of water rising outside your home, consider asking your neighbors what you can do–or not. You can start looking for solutions on your own and stop relying on drainage systems. It might fail your expectations!
