Dock Drains & Dock Pumps
Over the ages, your dock drain is liable to clog and overflow, and your dock drain pump can malfunction. If you’re experiencing a dock drain issue, it’s time to get it fixed. You never know when the next storm is liable to drop in and wreak havoc. Dock drains, or trench drains, are designed to collect water and debris, and move those contents away from the dock. If a dock is below grade, you may need a drain pump to get rid of this accumulation. Without dock drains, docks are liable to become flooded. Now, dock drains aren’t impervious to an accumulation of debris, and dock drain pumps are liable to fail.
Debris and Clogging
Debris can accumulate as your dock drain carries away fluids. Whether it’s dirt, rocks, plant material, or any other solid, debris can clog your drain. If you’re experiencing a dock drain clog, or a dock pump malfunction, your dock drain can overflow and cause damage or halt operations. Although dock drains are covered with grates, even small debris can accumulate and become stuck.
