A photo showing one of our Sump Systems. Note the size of the basin and the discharge line. This pump will empty this basin in seconds when activated.

A gutter down spout empties into a 4” drain  line. Leaf guards on the gutters are recommended to keep debris out of the drain line.

One of our workers is backfilling the discharge line. These drain basins are large and empty into a 6” discharge line which is over 100’ in length.

This line is nearing completion.

The grass has been returned over a portion of the trench. The remaining dirt will be removed.

This image shows an existing drain basin that empties into the sump basin. The sump pumps the water out through it’s small discharge line.

This is the discharge end of this sump system. Here the water is released to a concrete alley that flows to the street.

Drains basins located in shrubs also need to be cleaned out often to keep debris from clogging the basin grate.

A photo of a drain basin and line system in place ready for backfilling. This basin grate is 18”x18” and can handle a large amount of water.

A closer view of the sump motor and float which activates the sump motor when the basin is filled with water.

A French drain installed on the high side of a pier & beam foundation. This drain keeps water from collecting and migrating under the house.

French drain systems use a  sock covered perforated pipe bedded in crushed stone. The stone is wrapped with landscape fabric before it is covered with dirt. This drain will protect a sunken den from water intrusion.

The fabric will be folded over the stone and the trench will be covered with the desired backfill. Care must be taken not to disturb the fabric or stone when planting or landscaping.
