Water damage to basements, crawlspaces, and foundations is an expensive issue for homeowners – but fortunately, it can be fixed through the installation of proper indoor drainage systems. From sump pumps to drain titles, the Hydraway Drainage System can prevent future water damage to your home.
Common in-home drainage issues stem from leaking or cracking foundation in your basement, crawl space, or slab. A crawl space leak occurs in the shallow space below your home that provides access to pipes, wires, and equipment.
A slab leak is another term for a leak in one of the water lines running below the concrete floor in your home. They are caused by a variety of reasons, including:
A common issue is that many homes do not have a sump pump installed, or their current sump pump has failed. A sump pump is necessary to remove liquids from beneath your home –without one; your crawlspace or basement will often experience flooding.
Drain Tile Systems
One of the most common in-home drainage solutions is a drain tile system, which is an assemblage of pipes installed around your foundation that allows water to drain away from your home and into the pipes. This system is designed to help prevent indoor flooding, but is prone to clogging as dirt and particles pass through. Drain tile systems do not have the open space to allow water to drain as rapidly as the Hydraway Drainage System.
The only proven solution for homeowners is the Hydraway drainage solution. The design of this system allows high inflow rates for immediate release of water from various surfaces, making it the industry’s fastest solution for drainage.
Sump Pump Systems
Sump pumps are installed in the lowest part of your basement or crawlspace, and its job is to prevent flooding. The sump pump works to pump water away from your building foundation, so your basement and crawl space stay dry. If you are experiencing flooding in your home, you should consider installing a sump pump – sooner rather than later to prevent further damage.
Different households will need varying solutions, depending on the size of the home and the severity of the drainage problem.
