    Deck Drain

    What is the best way to clean out the deck drain. There is dirt in it and it is clogged. Water keeps backing up on the pool deck.

    I would find a way to get it up and out then use a thin stream of strong water to flush all of the stuff out. It might take some doing but will be worth it.

    Re: Deck Drain

    I had that problem. I ended up running a plumber's snake through while running a good stream of water to chase the stuff I loosened up out.

    And ever since then, I'm really careful to sweep the patio, not just use the hose to wash everything into the drain. The pipe is too small and there isn't enough pitch to keep it all moving.
