In this area, gutter and yard drains are important to prevent water from collecting in yards or your basement. It’s amazing how much silt can build up in these drains over time. It’s not uncommon to see yard drains three-quarters full of silt.
You may never notice your yard drains are not working until we’re hit with one of those torrential downpours. Even then if the puddles go away over a day or two, they may indicate the drains are not flowing the way they should.
A professional plumber can snake these yard drains and keep them flowing freely. Put your yard drains on your list of maintenance items to check regularly. You could avoid a big problem later on.
If you have persistent puddle or wet spot that won’t drain. Call a plumber and let them help you find a solution.
