A drain tile is an essential part of any well planned out building or engineering project. Ranging from parking lots to multi-unit apartments, all constructions can benefit from a drain tile.
A drain tile is a perforated flexible pipe, surrounded by gravel running throughout the base layers of a project. It acts as “underground trench”, leading ground and storm water away from the foundation or base into the sump pump pit using gravity. Layout typically consists of pipe laid around the perimeter of the foundation footings, and well as single lengths near storm drains and drainage channels.
Yet another reason that a drain tile would be beneficial, is its ability to protect future investments. Drain tiles ensure that the slow degradation of soils and pavements doesn’t occur, in addition to resisting groundwater from seeping in to basements and other low lying areas. Drain tile installation, in addition to good damp-proofing allows for the highest chance of making sure that basements or underground constructions do not get pre-mature degradation. This can help to ensure the safety of generations to come.
