Our culvert drain backs up spilling excess water onto our gravel
driveway. I'm thinking it's mostly dirt clay, twigs and leaves.
I was going to use a snake to clean it out but it's at the base of our
driveway and there is no electric outlet nearby.
Any other sugestions?
There ya' go--ask a pertinent simple question! Atta' boy, haller... :)
To OP, that's a sidebar joke... :)
If it's relatively large, I'd start by trying to fish out what can be
done from either/both ends and if it isn't totally plugged follow that
w/ a pressure nozzle on a garden hose. Often that will be sufficient.
If the grade is such that there's reasonable access, a cobbled-together
extension of 1/2" copper pipe on the end of the hose can be used as a
combination ram and water cannon. A "nozzle" as simple as simply
flattening the end w/ a hammer can be quite effective.
