What are some common problems with driveway plastic culverts? What are some common problems with driveway plastic culverts?
Driveway plastic culverts are part of a drainage system used when installing a new driveway. The first problem with plastic culverts is that you may need a permit to install them as you are altering your property. Check with your city council before getting started to save time and effort if they deem it unsuitable. If the plastic culvert is not buried deep enough underground, the weight of the vehicle driving on the driveway can be enough to crack or crush the culvert. Finally, blockages can form at the end of culvert. If not regularly checked, this can cause water to be stored in the pipe and back up into your house.
