Drainage Systems in Meredith and Laconia NH

Residential drainage systems eliminate excess water from residential areas. The system helps divert water away from driveways, walkways, and roofs so to avoid flooding. Residential drain systems are highly important as they prevent mold, mildew, rotting, and oftentimes structural damage in buildings that are prone to a buildup of water. Our SE e
Residential drainage systems are categorized in different groups. These are: Surface, Subsurface, Slope, Downspout and gutters

Surface drainage systems have shallow ditch
s that are dug in a parallel pattern. These act as canals for run-off water. These ditches divert the water into the main drain. This helps to avoid water pooling and flooding.

Subsurface drainage system are also known as French drains. This type of drain is placed beneath the top layer of soil which removes excess water at the root level. Digging deep ditches is required with Subsurface drains which is followed by the installation of underground pipes. installing large collector drains are installed to collect water from the pipes.

Slope drain drainage systems allow water to flow downward from a structure with the assistance of pipes moving down a slope. A pipe is installed and then anchored into a small incline. This causes water to flow through the pipe and away from the structure.

Downspouts and gutter systems collect water from gutters and then divert it into the ground. A downspout is connected typically to a gutter system on a building and that carries water away from the roof down to the ground. Downspouts will empty out the water on a slope so that water does not pool at the bottom of the downspout.

Combined drainage systems use a single drain to convey both water from sanitary usage and rainwater from roofs and other surfaces to a shared sewer. This system is economical to install. Separate drainage systems use separate foul water drains that lead to a sanitary sewer. The rainwater from roofs and other surfaces is conveyed in a separate surface water drain into a surface water sewer. This system is relatively expensive to install. Our SE exam review courses thoroughly review the building and design codes to follow proper drainage system installations.
