The Problem

Internal roof drains or scuppers on flat roof systems require costly, regular maintenance to keep them clear and draining properly. Many building owners with limited resources forego costly regular manual maintenance, preferring to manage roof problems as they occur.

Clogged drains precipitate standing water on flat roofs and all of the associated detrimental effects (leaks, structural impairment, slip hazards, insect infestations, etc.) resulting in property damage, monetary loss, and workplace liability concerns.

The Damage

Each year drainage-related roof collapse of low-slope roofs occur. These flat roofs that drain into roof drains have inadequate provisions for overflow. When the primary roof drain becomes clogged, there is no place for the water to go. This can result in legal issues with life-safety and monetary losses from property damage.

The new way to clean roof drains.

Automated, continuous clearing of the area around the roof strainer eliminates the need for regular manual roof drain maintenance.

Maintenance / Manual Cleaning

All roofs require regular maintenance to maximize the lifespan of the roof, prevent leaks, not void warranties, safety reasons, etc. A lot of property owners will experience roof leaks and understandably blame the roof membrane or contractor, when in fact, it is due to lack of maintenance on the owners part.

Disadvantages of Manual Cleaning

  • Time consuming
  • Expensive
  • Must be performed regularly
  • Requires close monitoring
  • Often performed after debris has built up and damaged the roof system

Because manual roof drain maintenance requires building owners to invest considerable time and resources to address, many building owners with limited resources simply decline investing in roof drain maintenance entirely and only react to roof problems as they occur. Neglected roof drains can accumulate damage quickly and these repairs are often considerably more expensive than simply installing the Roof Drain Butler.
