Poor exterior drainage is a common problem faced by homeowners and can result in water accumulation near your foundation and soggy or flooded areas in your lawn. Drycrete Waterproofing can help manage your exterior drainage issues with the dry well or underground discharge line installation.
1. Dig a trench roughly 12 inches deep from the water source you’re redirecting (Ex. French drain) to the desired location of your dry well.
2. Dig a 4 x 4 x 4 foot hole.
3. Lie down filter fabric and install a 50-gallon perforated barrel.
4. Tie the dry well into an existing or new underground discharge line.
5. Fill the hole in with crushed stone for additional filtration and space for water catchment.
6. Replace the soil and sod leaving the yard like we were never there.
An underground discharge line is a pipe that carries water from one location to another for drainage or transportation purposes. These lines are buried beneath the surface to avoid interference with the landscape, structures, and activities on the ground. Underground discharges lines are typically installed to manage water discharge from sump pumps and gutter downspouts.
1. Dig a 12-inch trench to the desired location of water discharge.
2. Install a hard pipe tied into the sump pump discharge line and/or gutter downspout. Drycrete installs the pipe in 10-foot lengths, ensuring that each section is properly pitched to keep water flowing away from the home and preventing freezing or blockages.
3. Ensure the pipe is daylighted and fill in the trench and replace sod.
