Houston is often afflicted by heavy rainfall and flooding. Flooding or standing water around your home can lead to significant and costly damage both inside and outside. Proper drainage has several advantages including leak prevention, moisture intrusion prevention, soil erosion prevention, mosquito infestation, standing water prevention, landscape “drowning” and much more. There are several types of drainage systems that can be installed to divert water from your home. WaterTech Irrigation will design and install the proper drainage system for your residential or commercial property based on your needs and desires
WaterTech Irrigation designs a virtually foolproof drainage unique to our company. From a gravity feed submerged pipe system to the curb for typical yards with low spots too an electric sump-pump driven system for lawns with no natural fall, gravity or slope.
Types of Drainage Solutions
French Drains are a slightly sloped perforated pipe is buried in the ground surrounded by pea gravel and diverts water away from your home or other location to a more desirable place. French drains are located underground and not visible leaving your yard and other landscaping looking immaculate. A French drain’s primary function is to move water away from the foundation of your home.
Channel/Trench Drains are usually found within a driveway or along the edge of a patio, pool deck or walkway. Water drains through a visible grate, down into an underground pipe and drains out at the desired location. With a channel drain you are able to reduce or eliminate heavy run-off or standing water, especially during or following a torrential downpour. This also prevents erosion along paved area edges.
Downspout Adapters are another way to aid in moving water away from your home. These attach to your current gutter systems and divert the water away from your home or building.

My backyard was flooding and holding water so I called Julio and he hooked up to my existing French drain and I have no more problems now. He was very professional, punctual, was there when he said he would be there. His work was done in a timely manner and after the job was completed he cleaned up everything. Julio even cleaned out my gutter that was clogged up with leaves. I would highly recommend Water Tech Irrigation and Julio.
