Did you know that

Different drainage systems work for different and specific situations?

Several factors determine which drainage system to use for a particular section of lawn or landscaping, including the ground topography and geomorphology. In this post, we shall be looking at the different types of drainage systems available in the Western Houston (Houston Heights, Memorial, West U) Texas (TX) area and what they are suitable for.

French Drains

The French drain is simply a trench filled with a porous material like gravel, in which water seeps into a perforated pipe and is diverted away from the property. It is typically used for residential applications to prevent surface water from penetrating and damaging the building foundations.

Surface Drainage System

This type of drainage consists of ditches and flexible PVC pipes. They collect water from the ground level, divert it away, and are usually suitable for areas with enough natural grade to allow water to drain out through gravity. If the gravitational pull is not enough, you may require installing a sump and pump system.

Channel Drains

A channel drain is used for surface water and is mainly popular due to its simplicity in design and installation. It consists of a channel and a removable grate, and it may also require a sump, end caps, and other accessories. It helps to deal with heavy run-offs caused by heavy downpours and flooding. Channel drains are more discrete and appealing aesthetically.

Sump Systems

Sump pumps are perfect for basement waterproofing systems, especially where the yard’s grading slopes towards the house area. They consist of a built-in float switch that pumps away water and prevents it from collecting directly around the foundation and leaking into your basement.

In addition, drainage around buildings is vital to prevent leaks and moisture intrusion into building foundations and walls.
