Drain Tiles – What Are They and how do They Work?

March 31, 2015

Drain tiles are essentially drainage systems whose main function is to manage excess water that builds up around a property. They also have a variety of different uses in both the construction and agricultural fields. When it comes to residential use, most people in the construction industry consider drain tiles to be the ideal solution for managing water around a home’s foundation and preventing basement seepage.

Common Drain Tile Applications
  • Farm Drainage
In the agricultural sector, drain tiles are used to keep fields from becoming over watered, which limits the growth of crops.
  • Irrigation
As part of an irrigation system, drain tiles can be used to efficiently move water around.
  • Yard Drainage
Very similar to its use in agriculture, drain tiles can keep water in your yard from pooling in lower areas.
  • Foundation Drainage

This type of drain tile application can drain water from beneath and around your home’s crawl space and/or your basement, keeping water away from your foundation.
