Keep leaves out of your buried downspout drain pipe with one of these……………..

We are very fortunate to be in a line of work that permits us to see and inspect hundreds of unique buried residential drainage systems per year.  While I am certain that every buried drain was originally installed to solve a water related problem, sometimes the so-called “drainage improvement” only makes matters worse.

The issue we find is when leaves and debris find their way into a buried drain pipe.  The longer the buried drain pipe, the bigger the clogging problem can be!

Cut-Off Buried Downspout Drain Pipe Almost Completely Clogged With Debris From Unprotected Gutters Above

Once debris enters your aluminum downspouts (via unprotected rain gutters above) and flows freely into your direct-connected buried PVC or corrugated drain pipe, unless cleaned regularly, will result in a clogged pipe (partial or complete).

So if you have no plans to install leaf gutter guards or to completely remodel your existing clog-prone buried drain system, try installing one of these simple grated downspout cleanouts (installed between your aluminum downspout outlet and buried 4″ PVC pipe inlet) to help solve your problem.

This inexpensive drain pipe modification will do a great job of keeping leaves and large debris out while also providing a removable/accessible service point of entry to use high powered air blowers or a pressure washer to clean any/all remaining sediment from buried drain pipe (as routine maintenance plan requires).

Please be sure to contact Pacocha Landscaping Services, Inc. with any residential drainage challenge you may be experiencing.  We will do our very best to help any way we can.
