Yard Drainage Installed in New Holland, OH

A sump pump previously installed by a different company began leaking and running more often than it had before. The owners of the New Holland, OH home noticed that water from the pump was leaking out on the side of the house. There was a large puddle because of this which had created a "mosquito pond" in the yard. They called us in to figure out what the problem was.

A certified inspector visited the home to assess the situation. He determined that the sump pump discharge lines were clogged or malfunctioning, so instead of releasing water far away from the foundation, it was escaping prematurely right next to it. The pump was working more often because the water puddle was leaking back down into the basement through the foundation walls.

He suggested replacing the discharge pipes and adding a LawnScape Outlet.

The production crew started by excavating a channel for the new polyethylene pipes. These were connected to the sump pump discharge line to carry the water away from the home. Then, they attached a LawnScape Outlet to the end of the pipe. This is a grated opening which fits snugly to the ground and is camouflaged against the grass. It allows water to escape from the pipe without causing a tripping or lawn mowing hazard.

With this fix, the homeowners are again able to rely on their sump pump and waterproofing system to keep their home dry.
