Parking Lot Drainage

Serving Vancouver WA | Portland OR

White vacuum truck in parking lot. Pacific Plumbing and Drain's vacuum truck cleans parking lot drains, area drains for efficient stormwater management in Portland OR and Vancouver WA.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we experience a lot of rain. And when all of that water has nowhere to drain it just collects on the asphalt, leading to a flooded parking lot. Pooling water on your parking lot not only creates problems for pedestrians and drivers but it also affects the longevity of your parking lot. If you are having parking lot drainage issues, Pacific Plumbing and Drain is here for you. We have powerful vacuum trucks that use a combination of suction and high-pressure water at different flow rates to clean storm drains.

Pacific Plumbing is dedicated to providing property managers and property owners excellent storm drain cleaning & unclogging services that you can depend on. If you have a particularly troublesome storm drain, we can use video inspection technology to discern the root of the problem and fix it in no time. This state-of-the-art plumbing technology allows our talented technicians to see the blockage exactly where it is, so resolving the issue is a swift process.

Area Drains

Area drains, also called yard drains, are commonly used on properties that have swimming pools, extensive landscaping or extreme contours. They help prevent yards from becoming flooded by collecting and diverting stormwater. If your area drain is clogged you may experience:

  • Unpleasant odors in your yard
  • Standing water on your lawn
  • Backups

If you are noticing any of these signs with your area drains, you’ll want to contact us right away. Standing water will not only damage your property but it will also attract pests like mosquitoes — which are known to carry harmful viruses.

Area Drain Cleaning

Area drains are installed in the ground so they are exposed to leaves, branches, trash, and other debris which over time can cause your area drain to clog. This is why we recommend having your area drain serviced at least once a year, especially at the end of fall.

Storm Drain Cleaning

Storm drains avert flooding water by collecting rain and groundwater then leading it to a stream, river, or wastewater facility. Because of the consistently wet and rainy weather in the Pacific NW, storm drain maintenance is extremely important in preventing sidewalk and street flooding. Excessive flooding is not only a concern for safety; it can also damage vehicles and even your property when at its worst.

The frequency of catch basin cleaning & unclogging is based on the size of the drain and how quickly it collects debris. Pacific Plumbing typically recommends bimonthly cleanings to ensure your storm drain is doing its job to prevent flooding.

Regular Storm Drain Cleaning and Maintenance

The optimal way to keep your storm drain functioning at its best is to keep up with regular storm drain cleaning and maintenance with Pacific Plumbing. Our trusted drain cleaning professionals are experts at clearing backed out drains, keeping flooding at bay at protecting your property. Typically, storm drains and catch basins become bogged down by debris such as leaves and dirt. Storm drains can also encounter buildup due to garbage and other items which can cause rapid flooding.
