Having a waterproofing system in your basement is essential to maintaining the safety and integrity of your home. One often overlooked component of a proper waterproofing system is the discharge pipe. A buried discharge pipe can offer several benefits for your basement waterproofing system.
A buried discharge pipe is buried beneath the ground and helps to prevent clogging and freezing of the pipe. This can lead to water damage in your basement and costly repairs.
A buried discharge pipe is also an excellent choice because it prevents damage to your lawn. When a discharge pipe is exposed, water will leave your home and flow onto your yard. This can lead to erosion, dead grass, and a ruined landscape.
A buried discharge pipe also has the advantage of greater aesthetics. A buried discharge pipe is hidden from view and allows you to keep your landscaping looking beautiful.
A buried discharge pipe can also give you more options. When you bury your discharge pipe, it’s possible to direct it towards a dry well, retention pond, or other suitable drainage location.
By preventing clogging and freezing, protecting your lawn, improving aesthetics, providing more discharge options, and improving system longevity, it’s clear to see the benefits of this simple yet effective solution.
