drain attachment to prevent floodingWelcome to the Hessenauer Sprinkler Repair and Irrigation blog and website. We like to inform our online readers about sprinkler irrigation here in Orlando and the Central Florida area. Today we would like to offer our online readers some drainage quick tips that could make life easier.

Flooding by clogged drains can cause problems in the neighborhood. You can help prevent flooding with a few small maintenance actions on your property.

Keep leaves and debris out of the drains and gutters. Be sure to clean the gutters and drainage downspouts attached to your roof twice a year to ensure a well-flowing drainage system. Just a simple clog can lead to larger issues on your property and can be easily avoided by a survey of your gutters and drains.

Avoid piling yard waste such as fallen leaves on your property where it could wash into city drains. Keep yard waste in a waste bin or other container.

Use a rake or broom to remove leaves and debris that may collect on the tops of storm drains, and then place the material in your yard waste container. If the drain is still clogged after you’ve removed the debris, contact your maintenance services.

Inspect for leaks or damage to rain gutters that could cause a flat roof to flood.
Direct flows from downspouts away from your foundation, without discharging flows to adjacent properties.
