Blocked ACO Drain Channel
The team was called out to Byfleet Library to clear blocked ACO drains. Drains can become blocked during the autumn months with leaves, debris and even freezing water. The wastewater can back up causing flooding, leaks and damage to the surrounding area, including property. An overflowing drain can also cause potential problems during the winter months, if surface water cannot drain it may freeze on the road causing hazardous conditions for drivers, so it’s important to take swift action to clear any blockages.
Our team cleared the blockage at Byfleet so that the wastewater could flow into the grates and continue through to the pipe network before joining with the sewer.
What Is An ACO Drain?
ACO drains are modular trench drains made from stainless steel, corrosion resistant polymer concrete, or fibreglass and grates. They are engineered to be high strength channel drains designed for efficient removal and conveyance of surface water. Also known as ‘Channel Drainage’ or ‘Linear Drainage’ the ACO drainage system is a method of draining surface water from hard surfaces such as concreate, tarmac or paving, using a long narrow drain covered by a grating. The channel drains water along its entire length to an outlet.
