Weeping Tile Installation

weeping tile system

Installing a weeping tile system is an important investment in the value of your home. Hiring the wrong contractor or choosing the wrong system can lead to a flooded basement and a major eyesore along the edge of your floor.

Choosing the right weeping tile system (also known as a “French drain“) for your home can mean the difference between a clean, dry basement and one that’s flooded.

Like most other technologies today, weeping tile has come a long way in the past few years. Modern weeping tile systems install more quickly and have better results than ever before.

Which weeping tile systems are best?

Waterproofers know that the best weeping tile systems depend on these five factors:

  • A clog-resistant design
  • Can drain water leaking from the walls
  • Does not rely on filter fabric
  • Has a large outlet draining to a sump
  • Causes no structural damage to your home

The DOs and DON’Ts of weeping tile

If you’re planning on finishing your basement or using it as storage space, you’ll want to be able to rely on it to be a dry, usable space — and stay that way. If you can’t count on that, then you probably won’t feel comfortable keeping valuable or irreplaceable items there, such as photographs, furniture, or winter clothing.

To help you decide which system is best for you, we’ve compiled a list of weeping tile “DO’s and DON’Ts” that we’ve seen many other homeowners learn about the hard way.
