Here's How A Home Drain Tile System Can Help Protect Your Home
When too much water collects around your home's foundation, it causes structural damage. Fortunately, a drain tile system is designed to stop water from entering your basement.
Rain, melting snow, or groundwater can cause water to collect around your home's foundation, placing pressure on the walls and letting water seep through fissures and seams.
When you install drain tiles around your home's foundation or under the basement, collected water travels through the perforated drain tiles on an incline to guide water movement.
The pipes direct water away from the foundation of your house, either to a specified discharge point or to the sump pit in your basement.
In an internal drain tile system located under your basement, the sump pump, which is located in the trench, is turned on when water gets to the sump pit.
The pump then expels the water from your home through a discharge pipe, ensuring your basement remains dry and free from water damage.
Regular maintenance, such as inspecting the system for clogs or damage and testing your sump pump, is essential to ensure your drain tile system remains functional and effective.
