Gravity Drainage System, Walnut Creek
The homeowners were worried. Their two-story home had standing water in the crawlspace and needed immediate attention. The reason: the house was built against a hillside without the proper water management strategy. The problems standing water leads to: deterioration of building materials, growth of mold, and decrease in indoor air quality. Beckner Contracting recommended a gravity drainage system as the optimal solution for removing the water. We designed, excavated, trenched, and installed 160 lineal feet of three-inch drainpipe from the crawlspace to the street. Calculating a ¼” fall per foot. It’s been dry under the house ever since.
