London Drainage offers 5 tips on autumn maintenance to fend off winter worries

London Drainage Facilities (LDF) offers timely advice to homeowners looking to safeguard their drainage systems against winter damage.

Following one of the hottest and longest summers on record, autumn has finally set in, with sub-zero overnight temperatures hitting the south east this week. The result is an unprecedented rate of leaf fall, which is to have a catastrophic impact on many of London’s drains.

The UK Met Office has also predicted a colder than normal winter, which could bring heavy rainfall, snowfall and further strain our drainage network.

“Due to temperature fluctuations, storms and largely unpredictable weather patterns, winter can be the most gruelling season of the year for your home or commercial building,” explains Danny Fuller, Director at London Drainage Facilities.

“It is very important that maintenance tasks are carried out before the season changes. Here, I’ve listed 5 top tips for those who want to look after their drains in the run-up to winter.”

Clean out gutters and surface water drains to reduce the risk of flooding. An hour’s worth of remedial maintenance may help to prevent serious problems down the line. Leaves take up to two years to decompose, so if they are not physically removed they will turn to mulch that can block gutters and reduce water flow through drains, which can result in an increase of flooding problems during winter.

Invest in drain guards. These will stop leaves and other debris from getting into drains; however, remember that these will need to be emptied on a regular basis.

If running a septic tank, have it thoroughly cleaned and pumped to get rid of any accumulated sludge before the weather gets too cold.

Test downspouts to make sure water is draining away from the roof with ease.

If your drains are particularly clogged, invest in specialist drain jetting (http://www.london-drainage.com/drain-jetting/) to clear out old and part-decomposed leaves that may cause large-scale blockages and other problems further down the line.
