How To Beautify With A Trench Drain

The trench drain is somewhat like any ordinary floor drain, with a few distinguishing features. It is characteristically a long, narrow strip of waterproof material. The top grating is always installed flush with the floor.

This canal functions to evacuate ground water and other liquids away from a hardscape area. It then channels or guides the water into soft ground. This is where the ground naturally absorbs the water. This type of drain is also employed in containing chemical and other substance spills in industrial spaces.
