Water collecting around your foundation is not a good thing since water will find the path of least resistance which it will find through even the smallest crack in your basement wall. To prevent water from pooling around your foundation, it needs to have a path away from the foundation. The professionals at Pro Foundation Technology has the products and experience to install a surface water drainage system. Our surface and foundation drainage system will keep the water flowing away from your foundation, keeping your basement and foundation free from water and damage. Addressing the drainage issue before it becomes a major problem will prevent basement flooding, water leaks, and foundation problems.
For surface water drainage, Pro Foundation Technology uses Earth Contact Products (ECP) tools such as trench and channel drains, conventional drains, catch basins, and grates. A channel drain eliminates the need for grading the surface to a low area. The ECP channel drain is a lightweight drain system with interlocking joints. The channel drain acts as a perimeter drain at the edge of a slope. These channel drains provide a more overall open surface area than conventional area grates.
The ECP pop-up emitter provides a cost-effective downspout and sump pump discharge away from foundations. They are designed to rise above grade when water is present and then are spring-loaded to retract. This system will provide years of maintenance-free use while protecting your basement walls from hydrostatic pressure. During heavy rains, sump pump discharge can be extreme and without a proper drainage system, the water will only return to the sump pit needing to be pumped again. With the proper drainage system, the sump pump discharge can be moved away from the foundation and expelled through the ECP emitter.
Keeping surface water drained away from your foundation is important. Having the proper water drainage system will keep your foundation and basement dry, preventing more expensive foundation and basement waterproofing repairs. The professionals at Pro Foundation Technology can protect your home by installing a surface water drainage system with products manufactured by Earth Contact Products.
