underground drainage systemThank you for visiting the Hessenauer Sprinkler Repair and Irrigation blog and website. We like to provide our website visitors with news, tips and advice concerning sprinkler irrigation here in Central Florida and Orlando areas. Today we would like to give a brief drainage system overview to help our online readers better understand the importance of a properly working drainage system.

Generally, drainage systems can be divided into two categories, surface and subsurface. An outlet is at the disposal end of the drainage system, therefore the outlet is the point of disposal of water from the system.

The drainage system protects your home from flooding issues that could be persistent and reoccurring. Poorly constructed and maintained drainage systems could cause costly water damage to the house. Water damage could eventually lead to mold, mildew stains and even deteriorate the home’s structure.

Sometimes a drainage system can become clogged hence causing puddles and flooding. Clogged drainage pipes could be a problem that needs immediate attention. Standing water issues should be handled as soon as possible before bigger problems occur. Sometimes when homeowners have drainage issues, they may try to use a quick fix like moving dirt and digging trenches. They end up unsatisfied since these approaches are often temporary and ineffective.

Damp wood provides an ideal environment for termites and other insect infestations. By properly moving water away from the home, a properly installed drainage system could actually prevent property damage. Drain attachments need to be checked routinely because there could be a tendency for leaks to occur where the downspout and the drainage pipe meet.

We can replace clogged pipes that are causing problems. Perhaps you need a French drain to be replaced or cleaned. We can install NDS EZ Flow French drains in order to reduce clogging in the future.
