When you have standing water in and around your foundation it can enter your basement through any opening, or crack it can find. Standing water can also cause foundation problems. By installing a drainage system, you can keep the water from pooling in your yard and around your home. Don't let water become a problem around your home every time it rains.

Surface Drainage Solutions in Oklahoma

The experts at Pierman Foundation Repair Services offer efficient surface drainage and water collection solutions in Oklahoma. We use ECP catchSurface drainage solutions inn Oklahoma by FRS basins and grates to protect property against water damage caused by excess rainwater of irrigation. These catch basins are designed as a collection point for water runoff.

Surface Drainage System

Whether installed under downspouts or in planted areas, catch basins collect water and then a drain pipe redirects the water away from the home.  The grates are designed to filter out leaves, sticks and debris that can clog the drain pipe. The grate also prevents pipes from cracking in the winter.

Another part of our surface drainage system is a strip drain. These strip drains are prefabricated drains that consist of a high-profile, perforated, three-dimensional core that is wrapped with a filter fabric.

The channel drain is a lightweight drain system with interlocking joints. This channel drain eliminates the need for grading a deck surface to a low area. The recommended applications for a channel drain are:

  • Driveways
  • Parking lots
  • Sidewalks
  • Patios
  • Nurseries and greenhouses
  • Swimming pools 

Pop-up Emitters

Pop-up emitters provide a cost-effective downspout and sump pump discharge away from foundations. They are designed to rise above grade when water is present and they retrace to allow for mowing. This simple system will provide years of maintenance free use while protecting your basement walls from the hydrostatic pressure caused by excessive water in the soil.

Dry-Well Systems

We also install a dry-well system that is easy to install and is a sustainable solution for storm water runoff. These dry-well units collect, retain, and discharges storm water on-site, offering a gravel-free alternative to a traditional dry well. Applications for a dry-well are:

  • Gutters and downspouts
  • Installed with sump pump
  • Flat lying areas
  • Rain barrel
  • Channel drain collection
  • Combined with French drain system 

By capturing water runoff at the source, dry wells can reduce the increased volume of storm water generated by roofs of homes.
