Clogged Drain Pipe Restoration Services in Alabama

Clogged Drain Pipe Restoration in Birmingham & Montgomery, AL

A common approach to draining water away from a foundation is the footing drain, which is installed when a house's foundation is first constructed. The footing drain rests just outside the foundation and most often consists of a thick pipe laid in a bed of loose gravel meant to serve as a sieve and keep dirt from entering but allowing water to pass through. Occasionally, a filter fabric is placed around the pipe to keep finer particles of soil from entering the pipe.

Why Do Drain Pipes Clog?

As rainwater seeps into the ground and gathers up against the basement wall, footing drains drive them away from the foot of the basement. However, particles in the soil and mud enter the drain along with the water and form layers of sediment over time. Eventually, they block the waterway and the drainage system is no longer effective in removing the water from the foot of the basement.

A clean-up is usually required to free the clogged drain of that sediment layer, but the footing drains provided by Pioneer Basement are already designed with a fiber filter technology that prevents fine particles in the soil from entering the drain.

Causes of a Clogged Footing Drain in Bessemer, Troy & Cleveland, Alabama

While a footing drainage system can be effective for a time, eventually muddy water and particles enter the pipe and reach a tipping point. At this point, drainage is limited or completely obstructed. When excessive soil and debris press up against the filter fabric, this obstruction hinders the drainage process. Water in the soil around the foundation then finds its way through the smallest crevices and openings and into the basement.
