Yard drains require proper maintenance and regular checks to insure they are operating correctly.
Yard drains prevent flooding in your yard, your basement, as well as your neighbor’s yard.
The yard drains have a storage bin that is below the sewer line. When regular checking is done it’s easy to see when the debris is too high.
Yard drains are easy to clean and maintain on a yearly basis, but you do want to be careful not to drop the grate inside the drain or drop debris into the sewer line.
You, as a homeowner, are responsible for any yard drains on your property.
If you feel this work is too extensive for you to handle, you can contact an experienced plumber who can do the job quickly and correctly.
