Effective Surface Drainage and Water Collection Methods in Virginia
Atlas Master Companies uses products made by Earth Contact Products (ECP)
, the leading manufacturer in the waterproofing industry, so you know that you're getting quality products with excellent service. We install the following drainage systems:
- Gutter downspout drains
- Round and atrium grates
- Drainage piping
- Pop-up emitters
- Channel drain
- Pipe fittings
- Catch basin and grates
The ECP catch basins and grates protect homes against water intrusion caused by too much rainwater. They are designed to collect water runoff by filtering leaves, sticks, and debris that clog drain pipes. In the winter, these grates are beneficial because they prevent pipes from cracking in freezing temperatures.
Another effective drainage product is the ECP channel drain. The channel drain is a lightweight drain system that can be quickly installed. It contains interlocking joints that eliminate the need for grading a deck surface to a lower area because it acts as a perimeter drain at the edge of a slope.
The ECP pop-up emitter is a downspout that uses a sump pump to discharge water away from the foundation. It rises above grade when water is present, then spring load to retract. It also protects homes against hydrostatic pressure by discharging water caused by too much water in the soil.
ECP dry wells are designed for stormwater runoff. They can be used independently or as part of a stormwater management system. They effectively collect, retain and expel rainwater. They can be installed with sump pumps, French drain systems, gutters, and downspouts to eliminate water puddles in flat-lying areas.
Keeping your foundation safe and dry is important in order to maintain a healthy home. Let our professionals install an adequate water drainage system to avoid expensive foundation repair and basement waterproofing repairs.
