Understanding Perimeter Drainage Systems

What is a Perimeter Drainage System?
A perimeter drainage system is crucial for any residential home. It involves the installation of weeping tiles or perforated pipes around the exterior of a home’s foundation. These pipes are laid in a gravel bed, which facilitates the proper drainage of water away from the foundation to prevent any potential water damage.

  • Weeping Tiles: Initially made from clay, modern weeping tiles are typically made from PVC, which offers improved durability and resistance to decay. The tiles are covered with a filter sock to prevent clogging from soil and debris.
  • Proper Installation: Critical to the effectiveness of a drainage system is the proper slope and installation of these pipes to ensure water flows away from the home, not towards it.

Common Issues with Perimeter Drainage Systems

  • Improper Installation: Systems not installed to correct specifications can lead to ineffective drainage and increased water intrusion risks.
  • Aging Materials: Older materials, like clay tiles, can deteriorate or break, leading to leaks and blockages.
  • Root Intrusion: Tree roots can grow into the pipes, causing damage and obstruction.
  • Soil Settlement: Over time, soil settlement can alter the gradient of drainage pipes, potentially reversing the flow of water.
