Types of Drainage Solutions

Before installing any new drainage solution you must first diagnose the current drainage problem. Sometimes it is as simple as an existing blocked drain that is causing water to backlog and flood. The most common drain solutions are:

Surface Drainage:

This typically consists of small ditches or land grading which removes the colected water off of the land surface.

Underground Drainage:

This drainage type collects excess water and will transprt it through underground piping to a particular section be it a tank or dump spot.

How to check if I need better drainage

A simple yet effective test that you can do yourself is to dig a hoe around two feet deep and 2 feet wide. Fill the hole to the top with water from either the hose or bottle. Set a timer and comeback to check every hour for you result.

  • Drained within the first hour: If the water has drained away within the first hour then your drainage is perfect.
  • If it takes approximately 12 hours: There is typically a problem and you should consult your local plumber.
  • Longer than 24 hours: If your water doens't drain away after 24 hours then you have a very serious drainage issue which could affect the structural integity of your home as well as deep roots of surrounding trees and shrubs.
