Have you ever given a thought to how much garbage the human population produces in a day? Think about it, we have landfills and incineration plants for garbage disposal but we still end up with more junk than we can handle. Of course, the junk that we can’t handle ends up getting buried in the ground, dumped into our oceans and washed into our drains.
Without drainage systems, human settlements would be a disaster since there would be dirty water everywhere. That said, we have a lot of drainage channels all over the place. These drains make it easier for us to manage our waste water but water is the only kind of waste that these drains are supposed to handle; anything else that gets washed down into drains might choke them.
Drainage passages are made narrow on purpose to allow the water to flow with more pressure and even though drains in public areas often have wider passages, washed up garbage can still get stuck in them in the long run and this will always lead to disaster. Blocked drains become evident at the worst of times; you wouldn’t know that your drain is blocked until it rains and the whole area gets flooded. If you keep a close eye on your drains, you might be able to call a drainage company before the worst happens. In most cases, your drain would stop working juts because there was junk caught up in it and this can be cleaned by your nearest drainage company using high pressure water jets. However, if it turns out that your drain isn’t working because it’s collapsed then you might have to have newer drain pipes installed as well.
