Installing the foundation floor drain

Basic groundwater drainage channels are required in most areas where ground water may be a problem. The locally installed mudguard channels prevent groundwater build-up on basement walls and avoid water penetration into the interior. We discuss both new and existing funds. New bases where a complete basement is present require that the waterproofing coating be applied to submerged areas to penetrate the water through the wall. If the foundation is made of concrete masonry units, it is also necessary to coat the cement coating prior to insulation. A "mortar" is applied on the outer surface of the base wall using mortar or prefabricated fiber. The bowls are triangular and help to float on the base wall and to force the wall and groundwater drain. Entrepreneurs must dig a "tail" dive from the base frame to a point that is lower than the daylight in the groundwater channel. This distance is only a few feet or maybe a hundred meters. The tail trench descends down to ensure good water flow. The excavator places three inches of gravel on three inches of gravel, up to about twelve inches wide. Once the gravel is pinned by hand, the finished height should be approximately 5 cm in the inner basement. It is not necessary to compress this gravel. The entrepreneur then installs four-inch PVC pipes to the sides of the concrete legs with the ninety-degree elbows required to close the closed circuit until reaching the output corner of the trench ditch. There is a Tee assembly that allows the tubing to be connected in both directions and a third pipe opening is also exited to exit the tail arch. The PVC tube around the base is punched by two sides on one side. These holes turn down when finished. Do not let anyone talk about you leaving the holes in the water. Allows all sand, sludge and soil to fall from above to fall into the tube and thereby fasten it fast. Water builds around the foundation to find the holes at the bottom of the tube and easily access the pipe. As the water seeks to its own level, the drain pipes are equipped with a slightly sloping slope, the water flows to the lowest outlet point. Even if the plinth drainage pipe is mounted horizontally, the slope tail is a trench allowing water to flow towards the end of the tube. This is the least resistance path. Water is much easier to follow the pipe and pass through a small wall surface on the floor or on the floor.

As soon as all pipelines are installed, a second pebble layer is located, five inches. You do not see the tube when it's done. After the pebble work has been completed, paper, hay or red rose paper has been deposited on the top of the gravel to prevent ground penetration as much as possible. The tail trench tubes are solid PVC and do not require holes. An alternative PVC solid tube is a perforated flex pipe. It's a little easier to handle and comes in 100 feet of roll, but it's harder to stay on the walls. The flex tube is also solid in the tail trench. When basal charging progresses, make sure that there are no large rocks at the top of the ground water channels as they fall down and break through the pipe, which is useless.

If an existing foundation has a water problem, work can be intense enough to install new channels. For the recesses around the existing building, the operator of the gate needs a high degree of skill.

Soil is generally unstable on wet ground, which makes safety more worrisome, and in many cases requires a safe landing slope for people in the vicinity when digging. The foundation should be removed and washed if there is no waterproofing on the walls.

After the cracks are interchanged and new waterproofing is fitted, the drain piping assembly is the same as a new basement.
