Bad driveway drain


Recommended Posts

So I was looking at this house built on a hillside where the first half of the garage driveway did not look like it would drain away from the house.

There was a hose nearby so added water for about 10 minutes.

The water disappeared under the decking near the house.

Last part of crawl showed where it was going to beneath the master bedroom. No one ever checked in this area. Hatch had screws in it.

Gutter drains going across the lowest part of the crawl area had hole in the top of them. I guessed they were there to help drain that area when it filled over 8 inches deep.
