Rain drains are essential to preventing storm water and urban runoff from accumulating in streets, driveways and parking lots. They consist of a metal grate which keeps out large debris and an angled drain that allows rain water to flow directly in. Rain drains are generally maintained by municipal governments, though many larger homes and businesses will have their own private system that requires regular maintenance to keep working.
Rain Drain Maintenance
Keeping your rain drains working their best isn’t necessarily an expensive or time-consuming task. Periodic inspections and cleaning are typically all that’s required to ensure your rain drains will be able to effectively remove water in an emergency. Make sure you rain drains are not being blocked — when a rain drain grate accumulates too much debris it can slow or prevent water from draining out.
Rain drainpipes also require inspection and occasional cleaning. As with all plumbing fixtures, they can erode, become loose or be intruded upon by tree roots over time.
