Renewing and Repairing Your Drainage System After Heavy Rain and Flooding

Does your property constantly flood every time it rains? Perhaps you need to repair or renew your drainage system. Heavy, sudden rains can lead to serious plumbing with plumbing and drain systems, especially if your property is not properly equipped to manage the steady water intake. Our plumbing experts at Newman and Barker Plumbing can help preserve your property and guard against rain.

Why is poor drainage a serious problem?

Bad drainage can cause major issues especially during periods of heavy rains. It can cause muddy lawns, weed infestation and lead to health problems. It can destroy grass and plants and even weaken the foundation of driveways, retaining walls, fences, patios and walkways. If you see water pooling on your property, call your local drainage experts at Newman and Barker Plumbing.

How can a plumber help with backyard drainage system after heavy rains and flooding?

A licensed plumber can provide effective surface and subsurface drainage solutions to prevent water damage to your home. At Newman and Barker Plumbing, our drainage solutions include installation, repairs and maintenance of a variety of drain systems.

Drainage solutions include:

The main purpose of a French drain is to collect surface water and groundwaters and divert it away from your home’s foundation to prevent moisture seeping into the house.

Trench drains

Trench drain systems are surface drainage systems designed to manage surface water that can cause safety hazards and damage pavement and property. Grated trench drainage systems are simple to design and construct and require minimal underground piping, therefore reducing excavation costs.

Soak wells

Soak wells are used to capture stormwater runoff. The water seeps into the soil gradually. A licensed plumber can provide installation and maintenance of soak wells.

Stormwater pits

A stormwater pits is a concrete or plastic compartment that is located within the ground. It collects excess water to prevent your property from flooding.

Stormwater drains

Stormwater is water that runs from various surfaces into the drain following rain.This includes places like roofs, footpaths and roads – any areas that don’t soak up moisture after it rains. Any stormwater damage that occurs on your property is your responsibility, including maintenance of all piping on your land until it connects with the water main. You are also responsible for all runoff from your property, including any pollutants.

Spoon drains

A spoon drain is a concrete drain formed in line with the ground surface. Its purpose is to collect stormwater before it soaks into the ground. The drain directs stormwater falling on the ground, with its concrete bottom sloping. It takes water away before it soaks into the ground.

Agricultural drains

Also known as ag drains, are ag pipe drains inside a gravel trench. Ag drains are effective for collecting water that is already soaked into the ground.

Swale drains

A swale drain is a gently sloped shallow channel on a slight incline. It is designed to direct stormwater away from the surface or from a structure.
