How Does a Perimeter Drainage Function?
Your Perimeter Drainage System
Your perimeter drainage system can include a foundation membrane, perforated drainage pipe and porous fill (usually gravel). The membrane keeps moisture away from the foundation, the fill allows water to freely move down to the pipework and also up into the perforated pipe, which is graded away from the foundation, usually to a catch basin and then out to the City drains.
Over time dirt, debris, and other waste materials can block your perimeter drains or your old drainage may collapse. It may cause the following damage to your property:
Seeping basement walls
Puddling near or in the basement
Water stained walls
Flodding in your home
