What Is a Deep Percolation System?
Deep percolation refers to the movement of rainwater downward through the soil, particularly below the rooting zone of the local fauna. This natural hydrologic process is also referred to as deep drainage and groundwater recharge and is the process by which rainwater returns to the aquifer and local bodies of water. There are a number of reasons why deep percolation may not be occurring as it should, and in those scenarios, it can lead to a wide range of drainage issues that manifest at the ground level. A deep percolation system is a solution custom-designed for a particular property that facilitates rainwater getting past the rooting zone and deeper into the soil in order to alleviate drainage problems.
The Importance of Commercial Property Drainage
A well-functioning and -maintained drainage system is important to any commercial property because improper drainage will lead to soil erosion and higher landscaping costs over time. It will also result in increased wear and tear to hardscapes and eventually damage to foundations. Safety issues and greater liability are also concerns when it comes to suboptimal property drainage. If the underlying drainage problem is poor groundwater recharge, then a custom-designed and well-functioning deep percolation system is not only beneficial but often crucial to the long-term health of the property.
Is Your Commercial Property Draining Well?
Your property should be wet while it’s raining but dry relatively quickly once the rain has stopped. If your property remains soggy or there are puddles either on the grass or hard surfaces, those are clear signs that your property is not draining as well as it should. Traces of muddy silt along your buildings are an indication as well. If you have basement areas, you should watch for dampness and mildew odors, and if you have asphalt and other hard surfaces, watch for buckling.
No One-Size-Fits-All Solution
When it comes to commercial drainage, there is no universal solution. There are multiple options. Those options can often be used in combination, and each one has to be configured to the particular needs of the property. This is true of a deep percolation system as well, and there are four core strategies that can either be used independently or in conjunction. Leach lines are a traditional method that involves perforated pipes in trenches 3- to 5 feet and which can extend upward of 100 feet long. Horizontal seepage pits are filled with crushed rock and can be 8 or 9 feet deep, 3 or 4 feet wide, and between 50 and 100 feet in length. A vertical seepage pit can be between 50 and 100 feet deep, and a supplemental treatment system or STS is a solution when wastewater and a septic tank are involved.
