DRAIN TILE INSTALLATION
Am-cats Team Plumbing will cost $3,000-$4,500 per rough-out system. All material used is charged separately on the material invoice used for the project a day based on the number of laborers.
Drain tile is essentially a network of porous pipes that run alongside your foundation. These pipes are in place to encourage water to drain away from the foundation and into the network of pipes, instead of seeping through cracks and causing issues in your basement itself. Am-cat digs a trench about 12 inches 1 foot beneath the bottom of the concrete floor slab when Installing the Drain Tile. Interior drain tile captures rising groundwater, relieves hydrostatic pressure, and prevents concrete wall seepage. Therefore, no other waterproofing methods are needed in many cases. No exterior excavation required: The system is When you are installing Drain Tile, it is important to slope the Pipe 1/8” per linear foot. This means that every 8 feet there will be a drop of 1” in the pipe. This is vitally important for heavier rains. Same as your sewer, if it was level, it could handle SOME of the water/sewage coming from your home.
