Slot drain cleaning

Recommended Posts

This really crosses with a gardening thread so please move if better.


I have slot drains running all around my external tiled areas.  They work well, no issues (keeping crossed!) but I am getting a lot of rubbish going into them, leaves etc.  Yesterday we had horrendous weather, high winds and torrential rain all day, has devastated blooming plants and left slots clogged with small seeds blooms etc.


A stick shifts some of it, its too wet to suck with a vacuum cleaner (may not work if dry anyway).  I have maintenance chambers but they are a long way from clogged up areas.  Is the stick the best method and flush down the rest with a hose or is there a better way to keep them clean?
