Many times a Drainage System requires something other than a French Drain.  Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair installs all kinds of Surface Drains in concrete.  If you need a Drain in a Driveway we can help.  We install two types of Driveway Drains. The first is shown below.  Its a square surface drain with a metal grate.  The metal grate is removable for cleaning.  We have several sizes available.

 

We also install Channel Drains in sidewalks and driveways.  Many types and styles are available.

 

 

 

All Drainage Systems needs to have an exit point.  The water needs a place to go.  Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair installs cement curb outlets as one possible exit.  There are several other possibilities.

Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair can install a very simple drain or a complex drainage system.

Drainage Systems can be made up of one drain or a combination of many drains.  Drainage  problems can be very complex.   Complex Drainage Problems may require a combination of several different types of drains all inter-connected and working together.  Other times the drainage problem may be simple and straight-forward requiring only one drain or several of the same type of drain connected together.

An example of a complex drainage system would be:  A French Drain in the back yard connected to a Surface Drain near a flower bed connected to several gutter downspouts, which are connected to a Channel Drain going across a driveway, which is connected to additional Surface Drain in the front yard, which runs to a Curb Fitting that lets all the water drain out on to the street.

A simple Drainage System might consist of a Surface Drain that is connected to a second Surface Drain which runs to a Pop-up Emitter which lets water drain over the curb and into the street.

An “Exit Point” is the term used for where all the water leaves the Drainage System.  Determining the Exit Point is very critical.  It is one of the first things we do when diagnosing a Drainage Problem.
