Ditch and Drain Tile
All Gutter Systems is the expert when it comes to ditch and drain tile. We have been providing ditch and drain work in the West Michigan area for over 20 years.
After the gutter and downspout captures rain water, it is a good idea to divert that water into the ground, through pipes known as drain tile.
Features and Benefits of Drain Tile
- Prevent Foundation Damage
- Get water further away than extensions
- Prevent landscape washouts
- Cleaner appearance
- Easier lawn mowing
Drain Tile is becoming more and more popular as people continue to realize its many benefits. Drain Tile looks cleaner than regular downspout extensions, and protects your expensive landscaping. Tired of having to run the lawnmower around downspout extensions? Drain Tile prevents that headache as well.
How Does Drain Tile Work?
All Gutter Systems drain tile consists of 10 foot of solid pipe, followed by a perforated section that allows water to disperse into the ground. The perforated section is "socked" to keep the pipe form clogging. An overflow basin completes the system.
Drain Tile In Action...
- Gutters and downspout collect rain water as usual.
- Water is directed into an underground solid pipe.
- The pipe runs about 10' away form the foundation.
- Water then moves into a perforated pipe.
- Water is distributed evenly into the ground.
- In the event of heavy rain fall, any excess water is expelled through an overflow basin, onto the surface.
We have the tools and knowledge to complete even the most difficult drain tile jobs. Need to go under sidewalks? No Problem! Our experienced crew members have dug thousands of feet of ditch to lay drain tile.
