To understand different common drainage problems out there, you should first know how to recognize one. Inspection is a very vital part of the drainage system. The major signs of probable problem’s existence are when there are wet spots even after your backyard has already dried up and when there are field holes found. If any of the two is present, you should consider calling for a plumbing service.
Now that you are able to recognize the drainage problems, here are some of the drainage problems that can occur in your own backyard.
- Proper draining is not achieved when soil interference occurs. The soil blocks parts or the whole part of the drainage.
- When backfilling is done carelessly, there will be problems on the alignment of the tubing to the drain tile which could lead to breakage.
- Entrance of soil inside the drain due to any of the following: cracks on the tile, incorrect incision of the perforation and/or huge areas in the tubing.
- When backfilling is too loose, soil can erode into the pipe.
- The pipe collapses due to having a weak pipe, too much load on the surface and/or poor backfilling jobs.
- Wastes and plant or tree parts get in the way by plugging the pipe.
- Presence of ochre accumulation in the drain pipe.
- Incorrect application of the envelope material because of placement issues, accumulation of ochre on the envelope, and/or breaking of the material
These are just some of the problems that are really a pain. They can be fixed by anybody, but you should have the proper knowledge first. If not, it would be wise to get a plumber because, as they say, nothing beats the expert. If you want your pipes to stay great, you should at least check on it once in a while.
