How Drainage Works

If you have drainage problems, it’s good to be somewhat educated on how drainage works so that when you need a drainage contractor in Vancouver region, you don’t get ripped off because you understand more what they’re talking about.

Water penetrates the soil and goes down to the hardpan. Then as more water collects at the bottom, it rises through the drain rock and collects into the perimeter drainage pipe through 2 holes at the sides. Then the water travels towards the sump at a grade of 1/16 inch every 10 feet of pipe. Water collects into the sump and goes out your storm line towards the city storm line.How Drainage Works
If any part of the process is blocked, you will have drainage problems, which then lead to basement leaks, mold, flooded lawns, and other issues.  See typical Vancouver drainage solutions to problems.
