Talk to a Drain Expert!
A drainage system is a system installed to carry away rainwater from roofs and other parts of the property, eliminate any standing water, and minimize any damage to your home or business property. Whether you want to improve your drainage or install a new one, make sure you choose the right type of drainage system to fit your needs. There are different types of drain systems, including:
Concrete is one of the most common types of drain systems in the United States. It’s a low-cost system that is easy to install and maintain. However, because it’s made of concrete, it’s also considered a permanent type of drain system. Concrete is not only durable but also resistant to cracks, which makes it ideal for commercial properties. To install concrete, you need to use a machine to mix the concrete and add it to the sand and gravel. Lastly, you need to compact the mixture to make sure it becomes hard and stable.
If you want to install a new drain system, but you don’t want to deal with concrete, you can choose potted. This type of drain system is a bit like concrete, in that it’s a mixture of sand, gravel, and cement. However, unlike concrete, it’s installed in a tubular form, which can’t support heavy loads. It’s often installed in commercial properties, especially on driveways and parking lots. Potted is more expensive than other types of drainage, but it’s an excellent choice for residential properties if you’re looking for a drain system that’s easy to install and maintain.
This system works as follows: rainwater passes through a pressurized pipe and into a water-saving sump pump, which starts once the pressure of the water in the pressurized part of the pipe is greater than that of the sump pump. The sump pump then switches off once the pressure of the water in the pipe is greater than that of the sump pump.
This type of drain system works as follows: rainwater that falls on the roof drains into the rainwater pipe, which is pressurized. Once the pressure in the rainwater pipe is greater than that of the sump pump, the sump pump switches off.
