Why does groundwater around a pump station need to be drained?
Groundwater is water held in soil or between rock crevices, creating what’s known as a water table. Pump stations like the one in Indiana bring this water to the surface to be used as drinking water or for other human activities. A drainage system helps move the water into the pump station and keep the water table steady so the ground doesn’t become too saturated with water that could erode and destabilize the pump station’s foundation.
What do Hydraway drainage systems do?
Hydraway drainage systems draw water away from a building’s foundation, and they work with any soil type. They have many outdoor applications, including draining building foundations, parking lots, roadways, landscaping, and retaining walls. For the pump station, Hydraway helps balance the water table beneath it and keep the pump tank from becoming too buoyant as it sits in groundwater-rich soil.
What differentiates Hydraway from other drainage systems?
Hydraway’s pipes are much smaller and more portable than traditional perforated pipes. Also, they have small needle punctures in their pipes where perforated pipes have larger side slots. These differences let water flow over 70% of a Hydraway system’s drainage surface, so it drains water from a given space more thoroughly than perforated pipe systems do.
Do Hydraway systems experience clogging problems?
No, they don’t. Our drainage pipes have thermally bonded polyethylene cores that prevent clogging and salt buildup. When you install a Hydraway system in your foundation, it removes water from the soil without any clogs or stoppages.
What types of systems does Hydraway offer?
We currently offer two main drainage systems: the Hydraway 2000 and the Hydraway 300. We sell them to contractors, who install them for their clients in a range of industries.
What other applications do Hydraway systems offer?
Hydraway’s applications go beyond commercial foundation drainage. Our systems also offer athletic field drainage and residential drainage solutions. These solutions fix a range of drainage problems and help fields and homes stay drained and dry.
