Since we have a no scooter section I'm hoping it is ok to ask this. I have a yard drain that collects water from my back yard and directs it through a buried pipe that gravity feeds under my lawn and into the street. The pipe is garden pipe (the kind that slips together like interlocking straws) and I know it is clear (just had a roto rooter done). When it rains very heavy and fast, the water does not drain and pools up. however, if I pull off the grate and stick my arm under water and use a plunger for two or three pushes it all flows fine. Can I be getting an air bubble or something? Should this be vented some how??? I never heard of a vented yard drain. thanks all.
