There are different kinds of drains all over your house, such as one under your sink, near your washing machine, in your washroom etc. But there is one important drain which often gets neglected and is located outside your home. It is called your perimeter drainage system, also known as your drain tile. Its main purpose is to carry the water which gets accumulated due to rain, snow or rising underground water away from your house. Sometimes, homeowners don’t realize they have a drainage system around the perimeter of their house which acts as a barrier and stops underground water from entering their home. In short, perimeter drainage keeps your home dry.
Your home’s perimeter drainage moves water from your property to the municipal drainage system. Routine inspection and maintenance of your drainage system will help to keep the water that moves through your drains flowing efficiently.

If your property or a part of it is substantially lower than the road or city storm drain connection, water may accumulate in the basement. A sump pump can be installed to move the ground water from the drainage system to the city drains. Depending on the size of your pump, it can remove up to 44 gallons of water per minute. Regular maintenance to check the float switch levels and keep pumps clear of debris will help to prevent damage to the pump and extend its lifespan. Budget Drainage can help you with services such as underground pipe inspection to maintain or replace your sump pump with ease.
When you consider all the things that can go wrong with your sewer system, clogged lines may come to mind. While these are indeed potential issues you should be aware of, one of the most serious problems that can affect your pipes is tree root infiltration. Although trees create shade in your yard and add beauty to your property, their root systems can pose a threat to your pipes and lead to broken sewer lines. Let Budget Drainage in Vancouver give you a little more information about how tree roots can damage your sewer system, how to tell if damage has occurred, and what to do if it does.
If you buy a home, you don’t just buy all the things you love about it, you also inherit its problems. However, not all the potential issues in a home are immediately obvious or easily fixed. Much of what’s essential about a home—its pipes and sewage systems, for example—are hidden from plain sight and are therefore a little harder to identify and correct.
When you have problems with your plumbing, it’s in your best interest to know all the options available, from the most traditional to the most high-tech.
If your drainage system is doing its job, you don’t have to think about it. Its main task is to prevent the large amount of rain we get in Vancouver from becoming a problem inside your home. One essential part of your drainage system that you may not give much thought to is your perimeter drainage, also known as foundation drainage. Perimeter drainage is your first line of defense for keeping water away from your home’s foundation. Learning a bit about drain cleaning for your perimeter drainage can go a long way to saving you money on your Vancouver property.
