Drainage System Failure

The Problem

Do you see water “bubbling up” from your downspout connections? If you do, you may also see water accumulating around your house.

This is a problem. Eventually, this water can end up in your basement or crawlspace. Over the long-term, it might cause settling – everything from the sinking of your walkway or front stoop to more serious (and expensive) foundation movement.

The bottom line? There’s a good chance the corrugated pipes that connect to your downspouts have failed.

If they have, they’re encouraging drainage problems. Not solving them.
The Problem

The Cause

Most drainage systems rely on black corrugated piping, a product that only lasts 3 to 8 years.

Corrugated pipes clog easily. They also leach water at the fittings, a situation that encourages root growth inside the pipes themselves. They’re fragile. They break, tear, and get crushed. When any of those things happen, dirt and outdoor debris clog the pipes – often permanently.

If they’re not fully obstructed (yet!), it may be possible to clean out, or “jet,” your corrugated pipes. But when you do, they get clogged again. And again. Even after just a few months.

Thankfully, there are reliable, long-lasting drainage system alternatives that don’t depend on corrugated piping
