The proper grade, fall or slope for pipe placement is critical. Any reversals or dips in the grade will greatly reduce the life and effectiveness of the drain system. The pipe should have a continuous downhill fall over the entire lenght of the drain line. Pipe should drop 2.5 inches every 10 feet which amounts to .25 inch for every foot. We optimize our drainage solutions regardless of the existing grade.
Drainage systems need a method to collect and concentrate water to a pipe system. Catch basins allow pipes coming from different directions and elevations to converge at specific location. They collect surface water then it goes into the pipe. Rain-N-Drain offers pre-cast concrete catch basins for durability and long-term use. It accepts various pipe sizes at different locations unlike a plastic catch basin which has fixed height and holes Our catch basins are available in 12" and 18" square.
A French drain, sometimes known as drain tile, is a trench covered with gravel or rock that redirects groundwater away from an area. It is primarily used to prevent ground water from penetrating or damaging building foundations. French drains also keep soggy grounds and wet weather springs dry. French drains are also used behind retaining walls to relieve ground water pressure.
Multi-Flow (or strip drain) is an excellent drainage system that Rain-N-Drain masterfully installs. Architects and developers recommend Multi-Flow because of minimal land disturbance and it is installed close to the surface. It can withstand heavy loads in excess of 6,000 psf. Multi-Flow is not going to collapse due to heavy surface loads in shallow installations. The best solution if you have a soggy ground.
Channel drain (sometimes known as trench drain) is a specific type of floor drain containing a channel-shaped body. Trench drains are characterized by it’s long length and narrow width. It is used for the rapid evacuation of surface water. This drain is commonly made of concrete casted with a removable core or incased polycast liner or plastic liner. We at Rain-N-Drain typically installs cast in place trench drains.
A dry creek bed is an opportunity to bring in nature and a water feature into your landscape design. At the same time, control and manage storm water. It provides drainage during unusually heavy rains and eliminates ponding. They can also be used to minimize washing and erosion on slopes and banks. Dry creek beds is recommended for properties with excess water flows which causes erosion.
Crack injection is designed for cracks in poured concrete walls. It does not work on concrete block walls because of their hollow cores. It is usually applied from the inside, which avoids digging on the outside of the walls. Rain-N-Drain uses hydrophillic polyurethanes to stop water leaks in cracks. Hydrophillic resins seek out water in cracks. They chase the water and absorb into the tight micro-cracks and pores of the concrete forming a tenacious bond to the wet concrete. Leave it to Rain-N-Drain to stop water leaks from cracks in your wall.
Basement flooding is often caused by water build up outside. This is called hydrostatic pressure and water will find its way into your basement. A sump pump with a perimeter drain system is the home owner’s best defense against flooding because it pumps out water from the lowest section of the basement before the water level reaches the basement floor level.
In the event of a power outage or pump failure, we recommend installing a back up system. We offer two back up systems, the first one is battery back-up and the other is water-powered back-up. Rain-N-Drain can retrofit and repair existing pumps.
