Install Rigid Drainage Pipe
We use rigid PVC drainage pipe (also known as drain tile) ensuring an even downhill slope to the sump basin. Rigid drainage pipe is superior to flexible pipe–in part because the drainage holes are bigger and are not subject to the clogging from minerals and sediment which plagues flexible piping. By using only rigid piping, with washed rock around the drainage pipe as a filter medium, Standard Water Control can better guarantee the efficiency of the drainage system for the lifetime of the foundation.
