Q: Why might I need a Channel Drain?
A: If you’re having standing water in your driveway or patio or flooding in your garage, a channel drain would be the best solution as it’s meant to drain water from hard-scaped surfaces.
Q: How does the water drain out of the channel?
A: Outlets are installed either at the end, bottom or side of the channel/trench. These are then connected to PVC piping that is pitched to bring water out to daylight or into another drainage system on the property.
Q: Do I have to clean out or maintain the channel after installation?
A: It is a good idea to have a channel drain periodically inspected or cleaned, particularly if there are a lot of trees in the surrounding area.
