Excess water runoff can cause severe problems if it settles near foundations and homes. If runoff pools near your home, water can cause hydrostatic pressure and drive water into the basement through cracks causing water damage. Poorly drained areas can lead to erosion and foundation damage as well. Keeping water moving away from foundations is vital to a secure foundation and dry basement or crawlspace.
The Problem: The homeowner’s yard was receiving excess rainwater runoff from three different neighbors’ yards. There was no solution in place to redirect overflow to another area.
The Solution: Contractors were able to design a solution that solved the homeowner’s exterior drainage issues using the Hydraway™ 2000. The Hydraway™ 2000 was chosen because its smaller size than other available solutions caused less ground disturbance, superior quality, and product longevity. Two rows of the Hydraway™ 2000 were installed to provide high water filtration capabilities.
The Results: Hydraway™ exceeded the homeowner’s expectations. Shortly after the Hydraway™ system was installed, a particularly heavy downpour occurred, and the Hydraway™ 2000 kept the water moving away from the home and draining to the street.
