Arbour Lake Perimeter Drain Tile Installation Service, Replacement & Repairs
Highmark Plumbing can take care of your perimeter drain tile installation, service replacement & repairs in Arbour Lake. Perimeter drain tiles direct runoff from your roof and other groundwater sources away from your basement walls and foundations.
Directing groundwater into an appropriate channel has several benefits. It prevents weeping or outright leaking through basement walls and keeps foundations dry. By directing the water through an appropriate channel into a storm drain, it keeps it from eroding surface soil – which could mean cutting expensive channels through your lawn – and separates groundwater from septic drains. Keeping effluent separate from storm water helps to prevent overflow in wastewater treatment plants – which can create potential health problems.
A perimeter drain is usually installed during construction but can be added as a post-construction home improvement. It usually entails digging a trench in around your home and boring a hole to an existing storm drain. The bottom of the trench is then given a layer of gravel to create a firm foundation for the perforated pipe that will direct the water and to allow workers to establish an appropriate grade to encourage water flow. A solid or perforated pipe is inserted into the hole that leads to the storm drain. The perforated pipe is laid so that water flows to the drain pipe, and the trench is backfilled with permeable matter – usually gravel. Sometimes an eavestrough and downspout arrangement is developed to ensure water flowing into the right place.
