Rain water does not drain from patio


There are a couple of spots on my patio where water accumulates after rain. I think certain spots on the patio do not have the proper slope for water to flow to the drains (there are 3 on the patio). Is there anything that can be done to correct this short of ripping out the tiles to create the proper slope?

Thanks very much.

You did not say what kind of deck you have or how it is constructed. A picture would be helpful.

There is no magic way to make water flow up hill. You can use a broom or squeegee to push the water to the drains. A leaf blower will also work. Then there is a mop and bucket.

I was also thinking "floor squeegee". Unless a tile floor has 1 or 2" of drop on it you are going to get some areas of standing water, no way around it.
