Even if your home or business is not in an area predisposed to to flooding, it is still wise to protect the foundation with drain tile. The perforated system of pipes sits on a filter in a trench that envelops the foot of the building and takes ground water away from it to another location down slope. Drain tile is most often installed during building construction but can be put in later, if needed. If the system is placed inaccurately, the outcome is a site filled with water and a basement or crawl space that floods. Drain tile work is better left to the specialists at All Valley Plumbing. We have the necessary experience for drain tile installation, service, replacement & repair in Lynnwood.
If water appears in the crawl space or basement, it is often a drain tile issue. There is likely an obstruction in the line, the drain tile outlet may be impeded or the sump pit may not drain completely. Since evaluating this area it is not usually a priority, water can trickle in unnoticed. Excessive moisture can harm wood trusses and floor joists and cause structural instability. Drain tile incorrectly installed can bring about premature foundation failure. Routine building and foundation assessment by a skilled plumber ensures effective drain tile operation.
Repairing a small portion of drain tile is relatively straightforward. However, it is often better to replace the complete drain tile system for assurance that it will continue to function for years to come.
