How Do I Create Proper Drainage for a Concrete Patio?

I am not sure what a water snake is, but it sounds interesting. Unfortunately there is no easy fix for a slab of concrete that doesn't drain properly. You could try cutting a drain into the patio where the water is pooling, but by the time you cut the slab

I am not sure what a water snake is, but it sounds interesting. Unfortunately there is no easy fix for a slab of concrete that doesn't drain properly. You could try cutting a drain into the patio where the water is pooling, but by the time you cut the slab and get a drain installed and put it all back together you may as well cut out the section that is not draining properly and pour a new slab. Anything you do to try and divert the water will probably become a trip hazard on the patio and trying to shave down the slab to create the proper drainage will look just like shaved down concrete. I wish I had a simple fix for you, but concrete is very tough to change once it has been poured. Good Luck!
