Maintenance Tips for Underground Drainage

#1 Regular maintenance

Choosing to regularly maintain your Underground Drainage will not only protect the walls of the system but will also improve soil structure. We recommend maintaining your system to prevent dampness and to protect the foundations of your property. Keeping your system well maintained will provide general environmental protection too, making it somewhat more sustainable.

#2 Check alignment of gutters

Checking to see whether gutters are aligned will eliminate the need to purchase new supplies to replace the faulty products. A gutter that isn’t aligned can often lead to water pooling or your guttering may start to overflow. The best way to maintain your drainage system is to ensure that your gutter is held in place securely.

#3 Keep your gutter clean

Try to clean gutters at least once a year- this will prevent drainage blockages and remove the need for expensive repairs and replacements. Cleaning gutters will provide you with the opportunity to check for any damage or signs of wear and tear so that you can repair them before the problem worsens.

During the autumn, leaves can fall into the gutter and over time, these can block the drain, stopping water from flowing. By clearing your gutter of leaves and other debris, you allow the Underground Drainage system to function effectively.
