Having a Wet Basement isn’t pleasant. It spoils walls, belongings, causes mold and dampness in the rest of the house Storm Sewers. But let’s look at the problem in greater detail. What causes water in the foundation? The answer is bad waterproofing from the outside. Imagine, you’ve installed drain pipes in the house foundation around the perimeter of your house but every time it rains you have a flood in the yard. The water has no way to go, so it will find how to get into your house.
But don’t panic. There is a way out. If you have a good storm sewer in the yard, water will go away.
Storm Sewers are usually installed in the streets of the city. So, it is not a unique invention. But without it you will never get rid of dampness in your house. Sewers usually first send water to the catch basin and then into the pipe. They usually have grids to prevent kids, pets, bikes get into them. Even an adult can be injured. So, our TPG experts examine your house and its inhabitants and invent a Drain Sewer which will satisfy your needs. The grids should be wide enough to let water get into it without problems. But if the grids are too wide, leaves and litter can get into it and it will cause an overflow as they will stick to the catch basin (or sump).
If you have cyclists in your house, you should warn our experts about it. Then they will settle the gratings perpendicular to the traffic.
Storm Sewers come in two options – side inlets and grated inlets. Side inlets are usually installed at the side of the road (so it is probably not the variant for a private house).
Grated inlets can be installed wherever you wish. The number of them is counted proportionally to the water amount in your backyard during rainfalls. The ground should be sloped into the direction of the sewer to provide its efficient work.
After the installation your particular responsibility is to clear the opening of the drain sewer regularly to let water in.
