For residential home construction, you will often see a drain tile system has been installed. This is a system that helps to ensure that the groundwater does not make its way into the crawlspace or basement, so it is directed out and away before it can get in. If you have a drain tile system in place and it does not seem to be working correctly, you will need to contact someone to help with professional drain tile repair in Coquitlam to get you the results you require.
Of course, there are going to be some homes that will not need a drain tile system. However, this is a feature that is always nice to have because you never know when you might get hit with rapidly melting snow or heavy rain that could lead to significant water issues in the lower level of your structure.
Understanding Drain Tile
Even though the name implies it, drain tile is not really tile at all. Instead, this is a system of porous material in the form of flexible plastic piping or PVC that is put beneath the ground around the foundation of the home. The “tile” system helps to collect the water and will direct it downward and away from your foundation by way of gravity. In some instances, the water is directed to a collection pit where a sump pump appliance helps to remove it from the home
Should you find that you have water in your basement, puddles that are developing around the foundation of your home, or water stains that are forming on the interior walls of your basement, it could be telling you that there are problems with your drain tile system.
