Is Interior Weeping Tile Pipe & Delta Membrane Installation ever a good choice? In fact, there are situations in which Outside Foundation Wall Waterproofing isn’t possible, or may not be the best option. In such cases, rather than waterproofing the outside of the walls, Interior Weeping Tile Pipe & Delta Membrane Installation may be your best choice.
If you are wondering what “weeping tile” means, it’s a special kind of drainage piping which is porous or perforated, thereby allowing water to enter all along the length of the pipe. It’s usually installed in a trench, bedded and covered in gravel. The gravel allows water to easily flow to the pipe, and keeps soil from clogging the pores / perforations. When the water enters the pipe it to flows to the outfall drain or sump pump pit. In either case, the weeping tile doesn’t prevent water entering your home, but whatever enters is harmlessly drained away. Since the standard Weeping Tile Installation is beneath the floor, your basement remains dry.
The process generally entails the following details, as needed:
- Saw Cut / Break and remove a section of the basement floor along the exterior wall(s)
- Expose and remove the soil down to the base of the footing, creating a drainage trench
- Apply Delta Membrane to line the inside of the trench
- Install weeping tile drainage system and connect it to existing drain age pipes or sump pit.
- Install Sump Pump and related drainage piping
- Back fill trench with gravel to promote drainage
- Replace the concrete floor which was previously removed
- Dispose of all construction debris
Please Notice: some of the details of the process may vary, depending on your unique situation.
