Channel Drain Systems
Channel or French drains are concrete or steel drains used to evacuate a sheet of surface water rapidly. These systems are made for efficiency and durability, giving a residential lawn drainage system the strength of an industrial drainage system.
Uses of Channel Drainage Systems
- Swimming pools
- Tennis courts
Most often, channel drainage is used for driveway drainage.
Catch basins are an important component in most drainage systems. The catch basins draws in surface water and allows it to flow through the drainage system.
Catch basins are also equipped with an area to collect debris, thus preventing clogged drainage pipes. Their wide sloping inlet can ensure that water can be diverted away from the problem areas into the drainage systems.
The final component of the drainage system is grating. Grates are metal or plastic covers that hide a catch basin and keeps debris form entering the drain system. These grates can be customized to fit your decor. Whether it’s a pretty pattern around your pool, or a color to blend in with the landscape, Andy’s has you covered.
