    Morning all,


    Any help from the experienced would be greatly appreciated.


    I installed a new UPVC back door (full glass pane) recently which has two slotted drain holes just below the drip bar. I think I should make it clear at this point that the drain holes are in the door, not the frame.


    The problem is that when I open the door into the property the water held in the door comes whooshing out onto the carpet. It appears that the drain holes are not discharging all the water in the door until the centrifugal force from opening the door forces it out.


    I hope this explains it clearly and you can help


    Regards,


    Ashley

    Have you fitted the door frame leaning in at the top?

    A picture tells a thousand words!

    When the door is closed are the drainage slots covered by the gasket on the frame, it would very strange if they were?

    Are the slots in the face or underneath the door?

    The door when closed should drain into the threshold and in turn the threshold should drain out over the external cill, is this happening?
