Channel/trench drains are very commonly included as part of the overall drainage design of backyards. They are favored for their ability to rapidly remove large quantities of water runoff without clogging, making them a reliable drainage system.
If you have water collecting in the driveway and entering into the garage, then channel/trench drains are an excellent drainage system solution. The grates in these drains are used to collect sheets of water that move across sidewalks and driveways. The grates then redistribute the water into the drain to prevent water intrusion. Overall, channel/trench drains are able to capture stormwater that flows over large areas, such as driveways, and redistribute it out of harm’s way into a local stream or city drainage system.
