Underground drainage systems for a house guttering system provides a two-fold advantage for the homeowner. It removes water from the roof to the street or local drainage ditches. This will eliminate erosion and removes the water from the base of the foundation. The second advantage is that the system adds a more finished look to the house. However, these will become blocked with debris especially since they are underground and are usually only four inches across. Certain localities require an access point to the system every 75 feet. This will help with the cleaning and maintenance of the system.
Feed the snake into the drain until it either comes out the other end of the drain or you have reached the reservoir or access spot required by law. If you have reached the reservoir or access spot, open it with the screwdriver and remove the debris. Then place the snake into the next section of drain and repeat the process.
