Channel drain systems need to be maintained in the same way as interconnected pipework and require jetting equipment to keep them working optimally.
For this reason, we always recommend working with professionals to ensure the job is carried out to a high standard. We will not only provide cleaning services to keep the drains flowing smoothly, but we can also repair or install ACO drainage systems for your property.
Channel drains are designed to be relatively simple to maintain, so they’re often covered with grates that can be removed easily.
Removing the relevant gate makes it easier to remove any build-up of debris, waste materials and silt. Since ACO drainage channels are designed to capture rainfall, they can also capture leaf fall and litter which can cause blockages in the system.
If the blockage is more stubborn, you’ll need professional equipment to handle it and ensure that all of the material and solid matter has been removed to prevent further issues developing in the future. The Drain Guys are experts in cleaning ACO drainage systems, and we’ll make sure that everything is removed so the drains run freely again. We recommend regularly cleaning channel drains to keep them working properly and prevent any issues from developing.
A problem we see time and again is damage to drains where heavy vehicles and equipment are constantly driving over them, causing damage over time.
We can repair the damage by digging out the broken drainage and repairing not just the drain but the area around it to keep the drain secure and prevent further issues.
We can also install channel drainage systems, whether in an existing property or for a new build, to provide an efficient way of removing wastewater and rainfall from car parks, driveways, swimming pools and sports areas, petrol station forecourts and paved public spaces. We have extensive experience in the installation of ACO drains and can provide a fast and professional service that helps to keep your property hygienic and safe.
