Drainage Problems In Manchester

large driveways/patios with your drainage

Large Driveways or Patios (with non-porous surfaces) create large catchment areas during rainfall, which is normally directed across the surface into neighbouring flower beds or drains. During peak conditions, a large driveway or patio (for example: area 100m2) will capture approximately 2540 litres if 1 inch (25mm) of rain falls, which often does in peak storm in less than an hour. If the gradient of your Driveway/Patio directs its catchment area of rainfall to an area that cannot cope with the vast amount of water it collects, then you may experience puddling, waterlogging or even flooding of the affected area.

Clay soils

Your house might be found on Clay Soil, which commonly has a really low porosity i.e. Water can not soak through the clay soil into the ground. When heavy rains or big amounts of water go into the site, this produces wet upper topsoil layers, i.e waterlogging and flooding. Every site has unique residential or commercial properties and attributes, however Oakleigh Manor have a big range of Drainage options which will offer a help your problem.

Rest assured for the most part, Oakleigh Manor can create a service to assist the avoidance of your issue.

Compacted soils

Heavily compacted soils often have a very low porosity i.e. Water can not soak through the clay soil into the ground. These are in some cases triggered by heavy machinery trafficking the location, stockpiling of products within the area. This kind of issue is commonly seen within just recently developed homes or locations that have recently gotten heavy trafficking.

large driveways/patios with your drain

Big Driveways or Patios (with non-porous surfaces) develop large catchment areas during rainfall, which is generally directed throughout the surface into neighbouring flower beds or drains. During peak conditions, a big driveway or patio (for example: location 100m2) will capture around 2540 litres if 1 inch (25mm) of rain falls, which frequently performs in peak storm in less than an hour. If the gradient of your Driveway/Patio directs its catchment area of rains to an area that can not manage the large amount of water it collects, then you may experience puddling, waterlogging or perhaps flooding of the afflicted location.

The ground beneath us is complete of water all around the UK, the level of the ground water is understood as the Water Table. If the The Water Table is high and within your location, you will frequently experience wet soils, waterlogging and often flooding. You might be suffering from water entering your property, either springing through the ground, running in over your limit due to a natural slope into your land, water running in from the public highway. If the gradient of your Driveway/Patio directs its catchment location of rains to an area that can not cope with the large amount of water it gathers, then you might experience puddling, waterlogging or even flooding of the affected location.
