Downspout lines carry water from gutters to a storm sewer, city outlet, ditch, slope, swale or catch basin. This prevents water from puddling and instead, channels it to the proper drain away from the home. The pipe Florida Foundation Authority uses is very strong and resistant to cracking or breaking.
French drains are perforated pipes installed underground and surrounded by loose gravel or stone. This system allows water to flow into the pipe and away from the home.
A trench drain is a linear channel that's covered by a drainage gate. Florida Foundation Authority uses trench drains in front of garages, steps, and doors to collect unwanted water. This drain is usually connected to a drainage pipe or sump pump to dispose of the water away from the home.
Installing exterior drains is just one of the many ways that Florida Foundation Authority can help you keep your home safe and dry.
