Channel Drain and a Lift Pump Prevents Garage From Flooding
A great fix for when you have water running down your driveway into your garage usually means your garage is lower than the street. We did this n the nineties and I was in the neighborhood and I’ve been getting a lot of calls for this. I’ve been doing a lot of estimates for this.
We bust out the concrete and then we slope it. We worked the, a grade, do some excavation and we pour new concrete. This slopes to the channel drain. So, when the water is running down the driveway, like a luge during rain, it hits this channel drain. If it’s over with a lot of velocity, it might try to go up and then gravity will bring it back.
We piped it to a storm drain basin right here and put a lift pump in it, and we take that out to the road.
