Witches Hat Drain Protection


Blocked drains from falling leaves and debris

Issue to be resolved

The site is in a rural location surrounded by trees which shed their leaves resulting in the drain grates becoming blocked and restricting the flow of rain water. These drains then have to be cleaned out resulting in additional costs to the company.

Action taken

The drain grates were removed and a witches hat drain guard inserted into the drain before the grate cover was replaced, no cutting of excess fabric was required. The drains are now inspected at regular intervals and if necessary the witches hat removed and emptied before replacing back into the drain.
