What causes basements to leak?

Hydrostatic pressure is the primary reason. Surface water saturates the soil around your home causing water pressure against the foundation which then pushes water through the pores, cracks, and joints in the concrete walls and floor

The answer: Tomlinson Cannon Basement Drain Tile.

If hydrostatic pressure and saturated soil is the cause of your wet basement, our basement drain tile solution is the perfect answer.

How does our system function to keep your basement dry?

Water, because of hydrostatic pressure, is pushed into the wall (block) and over the footing seeking a path of least resistance. Water entering the hollow block walls immediately drops to the footing, out the weep holes and into the BASEMENT DRAIN TILE™ system. The water that is pushed over the footing is also drawn into the system. As the water begins to flow, capillary action (water pulling water), assures a continuous flow into the BASEMENT DRAIN TILE™ which then directs the water to the sump system which efficiently pumps the water out of the home. We have now taken command of water that once made life miserable. No more wet basement…guaranteed.
