Signs You Can Benefit from Underground Drainage

 

The right drainage system will serve your yard and your home funneling storm water away from your property. If you've noticed any of the signs that you may need better drainage in your yard, contact a storm water management company for further evaluation. 

  • Standing water that last for several hours after a rainfall is a common sign that additional drainage is needed on your property. The next time it rains, take a walk around your tard to check for puddle or other signs of standing water that might indicate poor drainage. 

  • Even if you don't typically notice standing water in your yard, the close proximity of a natural water source, such as a pond, creek, stream, river or wetland area, can put your home at risk for flooding, particularly during prolonged rainy weather. Adding storm drains can help you prevent the damage to your yard and your home that unexpected flooding can cause. 

  • If you plan to add significant hardscaping to your property, such as walkways, pool decking or large patio, its a good idea to evaluate how adding concrete or brick will affect your yards drainage. Installing a storm drain can offset any loss in natural drainage that may occur after construction. 

  • The best way to find out if existing buried downspout drain lines are working properly is to walk around your house during a heavy rain storm. Lines buried more that 10 years are more likely to be partially clogged or compromised and are in need of replacing.

Pipe Installation

 

The proper grade, fall or slope for pipe placement is critical. Any reversal or dips in the grade will greatly reduce the life and effectiveness of the drain system. The pipe should have a continuous downhill fall over the entire length of the drain line. Pipe should drop 2.5 inches every 10 feet which amounts to .25 inch's for every foot. We optimize our drainage solutions regardless of the existing grade. 

 

Catch Basin

 

Drainage systems need a method to collect and concentrate water to a pipe system. Catch basins allow pipes coming from different directions and elevations to converge at specific locations. They collect surface water then it goes into the pipe. 

 

French Drain

 

A French drain, sometimes known as drain tile, is a trench covered with gravel or rock that redirects groundwater away from an area. It is primarily used to prevent ground water from penetrating or damaging building foundations. French drains also keep soggy grounds and wet weather springs dry. French drains are also used behind retaining walls or relieve ground water pressure. 

 

Multi Flow

 

Multi-Flow (or strip drain) is an excellent drainage system that Precision Gutters LLC masterfully installs. Architects and developers recommend Multi-Flow because of minimal land disturbance and is installed close to the surface. It can with stand heavy loads in excess of 6,000 psf. Multi-Flow is not going to collapse due to heavy surface loads in shallow installations. The best solution if you have a soggy ground. 

 

Channel Drain

 

Channel drain (sometimes known as trench drain) is a specific type of floor drain containing a channel-shaped body. Trench drains are characterized by its's long length and narrow width . It is used for the rapid evacuation of surface water. This drain is commonly made of concrete casted with a removable core incased polycast liner or plastic liner. 

 

Dry Creek Bed

 

A dry creek bed is an opportunity to bring in nature and a water feature into your landscape design. At the same time, control and manage storm water. It provides drainage during unusually heavy rains and eliminates ponding. They can also be used to minimize washing and erosion on slopes and banks. Dry creek beds is recommended for properties with excess water flows which causes erosion.
