Interior Drain Tile System Installed – Cove Joint Seepage

The purpose of a drain tile system is to collect water around your foundation through an installed system of channel drains. (made from PVC pipe with weep holes, maintenance free and clog free) Running along adjacent to your footing underneath your slab floor. Once the water is collected into the drain tile system using gravity flow to pitch toward an existing or new pit. The sump pump will discharge the water and pump it away from your home. In addition to a drain tile system we will also use in some cases a mel-drain system to collect water seeping down the foundation wall. This will ensure a dry basement at all times. This system will prevent water from seeping into your homes basement. Ensuring a dry basement, especially during heavy rain storms, when you need it most.

Every single contractor uses the same concept (gravity flow pitch), the big difference is an experienced basement waterproofing team. The truth is simple not complicated. Here is where a true sales person comes out and will scare you into buying the "4Ever Flow" or educate you on water flow.
