  • Not too long ago we were working at a home in Plymouth, Minnesota. What you’re seeing here is a common type of drain tile installed in many homes. You’re also seeing one of the main reasons we don’t like this kind of pipe; minerals have bridged the narrow slots that are supposed to let water into the system and keep your basement floor dry. 

    The other problem is flexible pipe like this goes in like a roller coaster, and you can see why some sections are plugged up and others are bone dry. The result? A wet basement. 

    We’re often called in to fix the problems created by systems like this. We know just what to do; Standard Water uses rigid PVC drain tile with large holes to prevent the mineral bridging problem. We also take care to slope the pipe down to the sump basin to ensure proper water flow. Now, when our patented Diamond Drainage Board is installed the homeowner can rest assured his water problem is solved once and for all. 

    In this case we also installed an egress window that really complemented the house. 

    Darren, the homeowner, gave us a good review with 5’s for Quality, Responsiveness, Punctuality and Professionalism. When asked why he chose Standard Darren said, “I did a lot of research and Standard Water had the best – most complete – solution.” Thanks, Darren; we like to think so! If your current drain tile system isn’t keeping your basement dry … please give us a call … we can help.

    Basement Waterproofing 101

    “When it comes to the subject of water intrusion in a basement, there is no substitute for a complete inspection and diagnosis of the the problem. Studies suggest that sometimes the most effective solution to help eliminate ground water infiltration into your basement would include an interior French Drain installed around the inside perimeter of your basement and a sump pump to discharge water from under your floor.” More>>>
