Fall Drain Maintenance
Today, AAADrain specialists would like to tell you about fall drain maintenance you have to perform so that your basement stays dry for the upcoming season.
But why perform any special fall drain maintenance ? Because autumn is typically a season with plenty of precipitation, which you would definitely want to avoid in your basement. We recommend checking up on your main drain system with the help of a camera inspection. In addition, it is good to ensure that your floor drains are not clogged, if storm pipes are connected to the main drain.
We’d like to pay special attention to the eaves-trough. They need to be cleaned at least once a year, especially after leaves fall, and especially if you have trees around your house.
If rainwater gets stuck in eaves-trough, it can damage your foundation and run down into the basement. It is also a good idea to clean your catch basins. If any of the aforementioned devices are connected to your main drain, it would be wiser to connect them through a p-trap. P-trap cleaning takes less time and is easier to reinstall.
Cracks in walls and foundation
Check your house and if you see any cracks in walls or the foundation, patch them up with cement or appropriate material. Ensure that water cannot leak into your basement.
It is also a good idea to check the whole water system for leaks – not pipes, but devices like your toilet. You can write down the numbers from your water counter before going to sleep, and make sure it matches the one next morning.
