One of the best ways to ensure the protection of your home is by installing a sump pump. This device sits in your basement or outside your house and diverts water away from your home. However, it’s important to make sure your home also has proper drainage, so that the water from the sump pump is effectively flushed away.
One drainage option is a perimeter drain, also known as a French drain. This is essentially a trench that slightly slopes downward; typically it's highly effective at driving water away from your home’s surface. The trench is normally filled with gravel and a perforated pipe, and is a great choice for homeowners who suffer from consistent water in their yards or basement. If you have a consistent collection of water in your yard, you may also benefit from a curtain drain, which is essentially a perimeter drain dug two feet into the ground.
No matter how severe your drainage issues may be, Zink’s Septic Solutions will ensure the safety of your home. Visit Zink’s online or call (301) 359-0733 to find out more about their septic maintenance services.
