Footing Drain Repair in Cincinnati, OH

Footing Drain

What is Footing Drain?

When rain falls, water that seeps into the ground accumulates against the basement wall. Footing Drains are designed to collect the rainwater at the foot of the basement and channel them away to a nearby drainage system, like a sewer connection. Footing drains can be utilized properly by using a downhill incline or using a sump pump to actively pump and remove the water.

One of the main reasons for drainage failure and clog is improper design and installation. Healthy Basement Concepts can properly assess the damage and unclog footing drain. We are the basement specialists in Cincinnati, OH, for more than 15 years of quality footing drain installation service. We can fix your footing drain and make additional changes so that your footing drain functions better without further problems. We use an extra layer of coating in our pipes that keeps fine particles in the soul from entering the waterway, this increases the lifetime of the footing drain. We effectively use inclines to drain excess rainwater away from your basement foundation. We also specialize in setting up sump pumps for actively removing the water.

Why Do Footing Drains Clog?

During basement construction, a large amount of soil is excavated followed by setting up the walls of the basement and footing. The soil is later filled back against the foundation of the basement wall. This soil is not tightly packed and is more permeable to water than the soil that is untouched on the outer region. This more permeable and looser soil will absorb more rainwater that will collect against the foundation wall.

Even when installed properly, sometimes the footing drain gets blocked by soil during the backfilling process. Additionally, footing drains can be clogged overtime by slit or sediments of mud flowing with the rainwater or obstructed by growing roots. At this point, the drainage process is hindered and water has nowhere to go which eventually finds its way into the basement through the smallest crevices and openings.
