Water must be drained away from your home. However, water must never go on to your neighbor’s property. Your drain system should carry water towards the road near your home. It is very important to know where your water is going!
There are several types of drainage systems, but the two most common are surface drains and french drains. Surface drainage systems are made of ground-level drains that are connected to PVC piping. Rain water is collected, flows down the drains, into the piping and is transferred away from your home. French drains are made of perforated PVC piping that is installed in a deep trench and covered with gravel. This type of drain keeps groundwater from going underneath your house. It collects the water and then transfers it to another location.
Not only can improper draining hurt your home, it definitely hurts your landscaping. For any questions, give us a call at (864) 275-2039.
