Installing the Drain Tile at Mango in Morton Grove »

October 29, 2016

Drain tile is a corrugated pipe with small slits covered with a fabric sleeve.  The drain tile is then covered with gravel.  The slits let water enter the pipe and the fabric sleeve prevents larger soil objects to enter the pipe.  The purpose of the drain tile is to collect the water around the basement foundation and divert it to the sump pump pit and then it is pumped out of the house and away from the foundation.
