The best part about basement waterproofing systems – such as French Drains and Sump Pumps – is that they keep your basement or crawl space DRY. They do this by collecting water before it seeps into the basement, and then funneling the water away from your home. But where does the water go?
The water needs to be pumped away from the home through the discharge line. It's best for it to be buried to hide the unsightly pipe and prevent tripping hazards. The further the discharge is from the home, the better – so the water coming out won't have a chance to leak back into the basement.
That's what HomeSpec did for this homeowner in Willis, Michigan. The discharge line was extended and buried, and when it was finished, you could barely tell the grass was removed!
