November 30, 2007, Newsletter Issue #91: Clearing a Clogged Footing Drain

Tip of the Week

As Aristotle said, nature abhors a vacuum. So do the holes in your foundation known as foundation or footing drains. Over time they can get clogged. You can remedy the situation yourself with your trusty garden hose if your system is equipped with clean-outs (access pipes that allow auguring, flushing and other cleaning tasks). If not, consult a drain-cleaning professional, and go back upstairs and watch the ball game.
