A French drain, or drain tile, can provide much needed drainage for your residence, farmland or commercial property. It is not always easily evident that you have this critical plumbing system until there is a problem. High Mark Plumbing has experienced and knowledgeable plumbers who are available 24 hours a day to meet all of your drainage needs, including drain tile repair in Burnaby.
Drain tile is most often composed of heavy duty perforated PVC pipe that is laid on a bed of gravel within a trench in a specific area. Water that enters the pipe is spread deep in the soil away from a particular location.
There are typically four applications for drain tile systems used today, even though French drains have been in existence for many years. These drain tile schemes all provide the same result – diverting groundwater from one place to another.
- Drain tile is used in farming situations to drain low-lying areas of excess water and move it elsewhere so that crops can grow more effectively.
- Irrigation provided by drain tile transports water where it is needed most.
- Water that often pools in uneven portions of residential and commercial lawns can be moved elsewhere with drain tile.
- French drains surrounding a home or business keep water from entering the basement and from gathering around the foundation and ensure against water damage like mold and mildew.
