Take a close look at this picture. It shows exactly what happens when this kind of drain tile is used in your home. You can see how the water fills the grooves and just … sits there. You can imagine the kind of problems that could arise. This is why we only use rigid pipe on a constant downward slope into the sump basket (crock). It’s just another way we ensure you have complete peace of mind when we install your basement waterproofing system.
We found this while installing a new system back on June 20th in Cottage Grove, MN. The homeowner chose Standard Water due to previous experience with us. There were a few tight spaces to deal with but the crew got the job done and the homeowner was very happy with the results. In fact, on the NAWSRC Client Satisfaction Survey he gave us top marks — all 5’s — across the board for Quality, Responsiveness, Punctuality and Professionalism.
In this case the homeowner also had us install a battery backup system to make sure his home was protected even if the power goes out.
