What you Need to Know About Storm Drainage

Storm drainage is an important component of every home. The main purpose of storm drainage systems is to prevent flooding in your basement or home foundation. Storm drains prevent water damage in areas that are near water. When there is a heavy storm, drains release water pressure and guide the water away from your home. Overall, storm drains are one of the most essential parts of a plumbing system.

 

Storm Drainage Problems

Problems can occur when a storm drain becomes blocked. Silt is a form of fine sediment and can be brought in with the natural water flow. If too much of the silt settles in the drain, it can become blocked. The water will not be able to freely flow through the drain and has the potential to develop leaks within your basement floors and walls. In a worst-case scenario situation, major flooding can occur.

Get Your Storm Drains Checked

Getting a regular storm drainage cleaning can be very beneficial in preventing the silt build-up. Clean-outs can allow a steady flow of water once again. An adequate cleaning can ensure that there are no leaks within your foundation. Once the pressure within the drainage system is relieved, it is harder for the silt to build and cause a major blockage.


If you want to protect your home from water damage and leaks or flooding in its foundation, then it is highly recommended that you take proper care of your storm drainage system. If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to reach out to Allstar Plumbing, Heating & Air.
