- Surface drainage advice – ACO grilles in driveway
Bit of background, we have a steep front to the driveway, roughly two cars long, then it runs flat past the side of the house, another two cars length maybe longer. The driveway is 4 inches below the kitchen door. In the storm this afternoon the rain came in through the kitchen door. 🙄
(Other houses in the village were being pumped out by the Fire Brigade, so we got away quite lightly. The water in the garage only reached the kids bikes, not mine)
Anyway, half way along the flat part of driveway is a drainage channel which is covered by some metal “ACO” branded grilles. Looks like the drain under the grills needs clearing out, but I can’t figure out how to lift the grilles? They wiggle a bit but appear to be fixed down somehow. Anyone know how, before I resort to brute force and ignorance and wreck them beyond any further use?Posted 5 years ago
Have adopted the jetwashing approach, which has cleared a lot of gunk out. Sadly I did not spot projects top tip about the plank of wood first!
When it has all dried again I will apply the screwdriver with force to see if they lever out – spotted the brackets inside the drain once I’d blasted out the rubbish
