A Flooded driveway is not only unsightly and inconvenient, it can also be a real problem. Water collecting on your driveway can contribute to garage flooding, create a place for insects to breed, and contribute to the deterioration of gravel driveways.
Driveway Drain Trench Drain
When dealing with a sloped driveway that collects water in low areas, the best answer is to install a trench drain that cuts directly across the driveway. This is a great solution for driveways that slope downward from street level or have a low spot.
A trench installed in this way captures water that would otherwise run down your driveway to low areas and instead diverts it away. In regions with heavy rain, or for driveways with a low middle, multiple drains may be required.
Improper System Selection
Identifying the appropriate trench drain for an application is extremely important. It determines the functionality of your entire system.
For example, if you install a shallow trench drain system in an area with high rainfall or water flow; the gallons per minute will easily overtake the system and the water will not drain efficiently from the area. Instead, use a larger system that is capable of handling high volume situations.
