Whether you are in a flood zone or not, it is still important to protect the foundation of your business or residence with drain tile. A drain tile system lays on a filter layer in a ditch that borders the foundation of the structure. It effectively draws ground water away from the building to different area down slope. Drain tile is usually installed during construction but can be put in afterward, as needed. If the network is not placed correctly, a pond will form in the landscape and the basement or crawl space will take in water. Drain tile work should only be completed by professionals like the team at All Valley Plumbing. We are skilled at drain tile installation, service, replacement & repair in Smokey Point.
If there is water in the crawl space or basement, it is typically an issue with the drain tile. There is probably a blockage somewhere. Make sure that your sump pit empties completely, and the drain tile outlet flows well. As basement and crawl space inspection is not a regular occurrence, water can infiltrate the area and soak it for prolonged periods with occupants remaining unaware. Dampness can damage wood trusses and floor joists and cause instability. Drain tile that has been clumsily installed can cause untimely malfunction. Periodic assessment of the building and foundation by a knowledgeable plumber guarantees that your drain tile works properly.
Repairing drain tile can be a challenge. If a small section is nonoperational, restoration is straightforward. However, it is often better to replace the total drain tile network to ensure continuous operation.
