The topic of drain tile installation comes up frequently in the spring. Most drainage problems become noticeable when frequent rain is persistent. The more rainfall we receive, the more drainage problems arise. Drainage issues for the average home are usually limited to improper grade and or down spout runoff.

Drain Tile

Drain Tile installation can control water run off.

Keep in mind when you are installing a drain tile, you are redirecting the water somewhere else. In many new housing developments, contractors attached a 4″ tile to a downspout and bury the tile underground. The problem with this practice is that the water does not go away, it is only re-directed. Since the tile is buried, the water becomes trapped in the tile. If the end of the tile is not run to a bubbler box or allowed to drain out, other problems may arise. In the winter your tile will freeze and may break or cause ice dams. In the summer, your ground may become saturated and soggy or erode. Simply installing a bubbler box for your drain tiles will give the water a chance to exit the tile and evaporate or become absorbed in the ground.
