Water control and management in the crawlspace or around the home is essential for maintaining a home. Water first becomes a problem when the gutter spout comes down and makes the ground moist. It can pool in areas around the home, can cause wood rot, and can lead to a cracked foundation. We have to control the water around the home. Most water issues can be solved by using a perforated drain tile around the outside walls of the crawlspace or outside the home. To begin this process, we use a four inch corrugated and perforated drain tile with an accompanied sleeve. A sump basin of no less than two and a half feet is then installed. All of our pumps come with an owner’s manual of operation and info on a five year manufacturer’s warranty. Zimmer and Coleman are two of our most popular brands of sump pumps. The installed drain tile will guide the water to a point that we choose. This is where the sump pump will be placed. From here, the water will be pumped out and away from your home.
