Whether you are located in a flood-prone area or not, it is still important to protect the foundation of your business or residence with drain tile. The uniquely-designed and well-ventilated pipe system rests on a filter layer in a trench that surrounds the base of the building. Its purpose is to draw ground water away from the structure to another area down slope. Drain tile is most effectively installed during construction but can be installed afterward, if necessary. If the system is incorrectly placed, the unfortunate result is a pond in the landscape and flooding in the basement or crawl space. It is better to leave drain tile work to professionals like those at All Valley Plumbing. We are adept at drain tile installation, service, replacement & repair in Stanwood.
If you see water in the crawl space or basement, this is usually a drain tile problem. There is likely a blockage in the line. Ensure that your sump pit drains completely, and the drain tile outlet empties easily. Since inspecting the crawl space or basement is not a usual priority, water can accumulate without anyone being aware of it. Moisture can harm floor joists and wood trusses and lead to building instability. Drain tile that has been inexpertly installed can cause untimely failure. Routine assessment of the building and its foundation by an experienced plumber ensures that your drain tile is working properly.
Repairing drain tile can be challenging. If a small section is damaged, restoration can be completed swiftly. However, it is best to replace the whole drain tile network to make certain that it remains operational in the future.
