High Mark Plumbing can help with your Sunset Vancouver BC drain tile repair. Drain tiles come in a variety of types, and the repair required can vary between types. The damage incurred can also be slightly different, depending on the tile used.
Drain tiles are a material that forms a hollow tube. The material is pierced at intervals with holes – often about the size of an American quarter dollar coin. The drain tile is placed in a trench that has been lined with a permeable material such as pea gravel and then covered with more of that same gravel, back-filling the trench to ground level. When it rains, the water collects in the trench and is carried away from the area where it is not desired.
The drain tiles that the canny old New York farmer, Henry French, used were clay tiles. Clay tiles make dandy drains until someone drives over them, or digs into them with a pick axe. Like many clay objects, they can be a little bit fragile. Concrete tiles proved to be a bit tougher, but concrete is a heavy material.
Much more popular materials include
- PVC piping, or
- black corrugated drain tubing.
- relatively inexpensive
- light weight, and
- surprisingly tough.
Of course, any drain material can be damaged or wear out over time – and that’s where we come in.
