Our Services Include:

Sump Pump Drainage Systems

Sump pump tank systems are designed for those homeowners who do not have enough fall/pitch/slope to run water off their yard. In other words, “My yard is flat and it gets deep after heavy rains, in this area. What do I do?”. Sump pump tank systems are buried tank reservoirs that water flows down into. An automatic float switch on the pump is located at the bottom of the reservoir which then pumps the water, at a rate of 5000 gallons per hour, out of your yard. Depending on what kind of drainage problem you have, french drains or catch basin systems can be run into a sump pump tank and work well for extracting water rapidly.

* It is our experience, with these tanks, a dedicated plug, from you breaker box, will need to be installed by a licensed electrician. This is necessary to support the pump in an elongated rain event.

French Drains

The term french drain has become the generic term for all drainage. A French Drain is actually a drain that uses a sock pipe (a drain pipe with slits or holes covered in a mesh sock) covered with rock and wrapped with filter cloth. These drains are used to dry out areas where there is not necessarily surface water standing but subsurface muckiness. Clear Water has installed french drains in yards that could not be mowed for years do to unbelievable sogginess.
We have seen our french drains reclaim back yards and in a matter of weeks dry them out to where they are rock hard and usable. Many french drains extract water slowly from their yards and are constantly working to keep your yard dry.

Surface Water Drains

For those yards where fast extraction of surface water is needed, to accomplish the homeowners goals, catch basins are the answer. A catch basin is a drain box. These drain boxes come in several different sizes. The most common sizes are 9x9” and 12x12”. In some rare cases, where large amounts of water must be removed rapidly, 16x16”, 18x18”, or 24x24” catch basins can be used. In these cases a 6” pipe will typically be used as an upgrade to move almost 3 times the water as a 4” pipe. Drain boxes are generally a tough black plastic with a green or black grate, on top. Clear Water will shoot the grade on your property to determine where your drain boxes should go and also what is the best place to disperse of your water. 

Gutter Downspout Drains

Roof water is the number one culprit for most drainage problems. Seamless gutters can help to catch roof water and bring it gently to the ground, preventing erosion and many other problems. However, the only downside is when the gutters bring the roof water to 5 or 6 downspout locations, it can cause flooding problems on those areas of your lawn. If I were to tell you that 1” of rain, on a 2000 square foot home, equals 1500 gallons of water shed, you probably wouldn’t believe me, but it’s true. That’s why at Clear Water Drainage, we always recommend gutters, but to also tie those downspouts into a drainage system. This will take that roof water away from the house, to an area where the water can easily flow away.
