Weeping Tiles - What You Need to Know

WEEPING TILES Your Home Flooding Solution WHAT ARE THEY? Weeping tiles are used to drain water from the foundation of a home as well as basements. They are vital to keeping basements and underground structures water free. away HOW DO THEY WORK? Each of the weeping tiles has a small slit that runs along the length of one side. They are then buried under the gravel, which keeps the soil from clogging up tile and it allows it to drain the water to a sewage system. the WHAT IS IT MADE OUT OF? Up until the 1970s, drain pipes were made out of clay. Plastic is now what weeping tiles are made out of, it is high in density polyethylene tubing. This means that it is durable and flexible which it needs to be. HOW IS IT INSTALLED? Weeping tiles must be buried in a trench and covered in gravel. But, along with that, one end must be higher than the other end so that the water can drain away from the foundation. Sump pumps can also help with this by drawing the water out of the end and sending it to a drainage ditch or sewage drain. WHEN SHOULD IT BE INSTALLED? Any properties that are located in a flood-prone area should consider installing weeping tiles. They are rustproof, durable, and won't be damaged by the soil pH.
