Drainage Solutions FAQs

The main reason corrugated pipe collapses is because of the weight of the soil or other material surrounding it. The weight of the earth pushes down on the corrugated pipe, and over time the pressure can cause the pipe to buckle and collapse. Other factors that can contribute to a pipe’s collapse are corrosion, poor installation, and damage from outside forces.

Drainage systems, such as storm drains and sewers, are essential for preventing flooding. They work by removing excess water from the streets, homes, and businesses. without them, the rainwater would just sit on top of the ground and eventually overflow causing massive flooding.

It’s important to have a good drainage system because it helps prevent flooding and keeps water from seeping into your home or building. A good drainage system will also help keep the soil healthy by removing excess water and preventing erosion.

Surface Drainage Systems collect water that flows over the surface of the earth. It is often composed of ditches, gutters, and storm drains. Subsurface Drainage Systems collect water that has seeped below the surface of the earth. It is often composed of pipes or tiles that are buried underground. Slope drainage systems use the natural slope of the land to move water away from the buildings and structures. Downspouts and gutter system are used to collect water from roofs and direct it away from buildings. 

It depends on the application. PVC is typically used for water or sewer lines, while corrugated pipe is used for oil and gas pipelines. Generally speaking, PVC is stronger but less flexible than corrugated pipe.

Drainage failure is the inability of a drainage system to move water away from a property. This can lead to extensive damage to the property, and can even cause structural failures. There are many things that can cause drainage failure, including blocked or collapsed pipes, incorrect design or installation of the drainage system, and subsidence (the movement of earth).

The depth of drainage pipes will vary depending on the soil type and the climate. In general, pipes should be buried at least 18 inches below ground level, but this may need to be deeper in areas with high water tables or unstable soils.

There are a few diseases that can be caused by a blockage in the water drains. One example is cholera, which is a bacterial infection that can cause severe diarrhea and vomiting. If the water drains become blocked, it can lead to an increase in the amount of wastewater and sewage present in an area, which can then contaminate the local water supply and cause people to become ill.
