What Happens When Your Drain Gets Clogged?

Outdoor drains are usually installed in order to divert the flow of water in your yard. When they become clogged, water won’t have anywhere to go, and your yard can become flooded. Serious blockages outside could even force water towards your home, which can lead to big problems like corrosion or sewage backup.

How to Unclog an Outdoor Drain

Usually, unclogging an outdoor drain is as simple as removing some leaves and debris. If you’ve tried to get your drain clear, but can’t seem to, it probably needs to be snaked. If snaking it doesn’t work, then it will need to be flushed out by an experienced Maryland plumbing company using a hydro-jet. If you’re unable to get your home’s outdoor drain clear, get into contact with us to learn more about our snaking and hydro-jet services.

Can I Prevent Future Clogs?

Yes you can! Regularly raking up leaves and keeping debris away from your drain is a great way to keep it clean. Additionally, you can also have a leaf guard or a drain guard installed. Leaf and drain guards will prevent most of the debris from your yard from getting deep into the drain, which will lead to a sharp decrease in the number of cloggings.
