A residential or commercial foundation can be protected from flooding water with an underground drain tile system. The perforated pipe, its filter fabric and the trench in which they lay border the footing of the structure and take water away from it. Drain tile is usually installed during building construction, although it can be put in at a later time. An inadequately-installed drain tile can cause water to seep into a basement or create ponding in the landscape. Check with All Valley Plumbing for qualified advice regarding drain tile installation, service, replacement & repair in Granite Falls.
If you see water in the crawl space or basement, this is often an indication of a drain tile problem. There may be an impediment in the line. Your sump pit should drain completely and the drain tile outlet flow with ease. Since inspection of the crawl space or basement occurs sporadically, water can accumulate without anyone realizing it until the problem becomes severe. Dampness is harmful to floor joists and wood trusses and be a source for creating building instability. Drain tile that has not been expertly installed can lead to premature failure. Periodic evaluation of the structure by an experienced plumber can ensure that your drain tile operates as it should.
Repairing a drain tile is a challenging task. If only a small portion is involved, repair can usually be completed in a straightforward manner. It is better, however, to replace the total drain tile network to make certain that it continues to function as designed.
