Whether your residence or business is in an area susceptible to flooding or not, it is still important to protect its foundation with drain tile. This specially ventilated piping system sits on a filter medium in a channel surrounding the foot of the building. It is designed to take ground water away from the structure to different location down slope. Drain tile is most successfully installed during construction but can be put in afterward, if required. If the system is not installed correctly, the ill-fated result is a soggy landscape and a wet basement or crawl space. Drain tile work should be left to experts like those at All Valley Plumbing. We are equipped to handle all aspects of drain tile installation, service, replacement & repair in Bothell.
If there is water in your crawl space or basement, it is usually an issue with the drain tile. There may be a clogged line, the sump pit may not be draining completely or the drain tile outlet may have reduced flow. Since crawl space or basement inspection is not typically a priority, water can seep in and escape notice. Excess moisture is damaging to wood trusses and floor joists, leading to structure instability. Drain tile that is not properly installed can cause premature breakdown. Regular assessment of the building and the foundation by a knowledgeable plumber ensures that the drain tile is functioning normally.
Repairing drain tile is a challenge. If there is a small portion that is affected, restoration is straightforward. It is usually better, however, to replace the entire drain tile network to make certain that flow is maintained.
