What Is a Storm Drain?
A storm drain is an important part of your home or business’s drainage system. They fulfill the important task of preventing flooding and rain water from accumulating on flat surfaces such as your driveway and garage. This prevents costly water damage to your foundation and other parts of your property. Storm drains consist of an angled inlet that water drains into. A large metal grate is responsible for preventing foreign objects from clogging up the drain pipe.
Storm Drain Maintenance Basics
A storm drain is a simple device — making sure it’s working its best is as easy as keeping the grate free of debris and periodically inspecting the piping for leaks, sediment buildup or other damage. While the first part of this is easy enough to do on your own, many homeowners rely on Mr. Rooter Plumbing for the latter.
