A wet basement and percolation rates are closely linked
Percolation can be defined as movement of water through soil.
In general, sandy soil will have a quicker percolation than soil with a high concentration of clay, or iron ore.
A percolation test, commonly called a perc test, is a test to determine the absorption rate of soil.
Before a home is built a percolation test will determine if land will drain properly and whether a wet basement will occur.
A slow percolation rate is not something you can change
The French drain basement waterproofing system is designed to prevent you from having a wet basement.
The French drain is installed inside the basement, below the floor, around the perimeter.
This French Drain controls the water, delivers it to the sump pump(s), and discharges it out of the house.
French drain systems are recognized as being effective in controlling basement water.
