Downspout System Replacement
You may be having issues with your underground rain leader system. Your rain leader is a pipe that collects the water discharged from your gutters and downspouts and moves this stormwater away from your home. Sometimes the pipe runs all the way to the road, or sometimes it runs to another part of your yard away from your home’s foundation.
Rain leaders are an important part of every stormwater management plan because they specifically eliminate the toll that stormwater takes on the foundation of your home. So as a homeowner, how can you check to see if your downspout system may need repairs?
You can have a local plumber with a camera, check the downspout lines (rain leader lines)
Check your foundation walls for staining near the downspout.
Look to see if water is backing up into the basement near downspout.
Walk around the perimeter of your house during a rain (with an umbrella of course) to see if your downspouts are backing up.
If you can answer yes to any of the above or the plumbers camera test shows blockage or rooting issues, you need a downspout system replacement and AquaGuard can help. Give us a call today, for a free estimate at 1-800-204-8273.
