A Few Types of Drainage Solutions
It’s vital for the well-being of your home’s structure to be free from water, and these drainage solutions ensure that. Downspout drain systems, french drains, dry well drainage systems, regrading, and outdoor sump pumps are various drainage solutions. While regular downspouts release water directly next to your home’s footing, a downspout drain system takes the water far away from your home. This keeps crawl spaces and your basement dry, and foundation issues at bay. French drains consist of a perforated pipe that is placed into the dirt to collect water and redirect it. It’s angled downward to ensure smooth drainage and is covered with gravel so it’s not visible.
A dry well drainage system’s job is to accumulate water (surface runoff, stormwater, and gray water) and disperse it into the ground over time. Spots where water drains quickly are a good match for dry well drainage. Regrading, or lawn leveling, is when water is diverted out of the yard by grading it in the direction you want the water to flow. Sometimes clay soils will be replaced with clean drainable fill dirt.
Lastly, outdoor sump pumps are the solution if water cannot be directed away. It’s installed in the lowest area of the yard, and when the water reaches a certain level the system turns on and expels the water out of your yard.
