Enhance Your Home With a Dry Well Installation
If you need a dry well installed on your Delaware Valley property, AWS is the company to call. Our team specializes in dry well installation and has many years of experience custom designing and implementing dry wells that handle large volumes of stormwater thereby protecting landscapes, hardscapes, foundations, basements, and other aspects of commercial properties.
What Is a Dry Well?
Effective dry well installation harnesses the power of gravity to channel rainwater to the lowest point in a landscape where a dry well has been buried underground. The well provides space for that water to collect and then permeate through a gravel base and eventually the substrate. Well size determines how many gallons can be held, and it’s important to have enough capacity to provide the necessary flow rate for your particular location. A dry well can be as simple as a hand-dug pit with a gravel layer, but for some properties, they often involve French drains, swales, multiple tanks, overflow pipes, and other components required to meet the specific needs of the property.
The Importance of a Well-Functioning Dry Well
Proper drainage is important for all properties because not managing stormwater leads to soil erosion and increased wear and tear to hardscapes and foundations. A well-functioning dry well is an effective way to deal with a substantial volume of rainwater particularly on commercial properties that have large areas with non-absorbent surfaces. Professional dry well installation takes advantage of the characteristics of your property in order to limit your drainage requirements and costs, and a dry well can serve you well for several decades or more with only routine maintenance.
Does Your Residential Property Need a Dry Well?
Surfaces should be wet while it rains but should dry relatively soon after the rain stops. If after rainfall, you have ponding water on either your soft or hard surfaces, then you have a drainage problem. Other signs that you have drainage issues include a muddy lawn, silt marks on exterior foundation walls, dampness in crawl spaces and basements, and slow or smelly drains. Whether you require dry well installation or other drainage solutions will depend on the scope of the problem, what is causing the drainage issues, and the unique characteristics of your property, such as the soil type.
The Benefits of a Dry Well
A dry well is an affordable drainage solution both in the short and long term that can be tailored to the specific needs of your home. Dry wells are able to handle large volumes of stormwater even during severe weather not typical for your location. Investing in a dry well installation will also lower your costs related to the wear and tear of your landscape, hardscapes, foundations, and so forth, and also reduce the risks associated with surfaces that are wet and worn and therefore unsafe.
