Since when did Holmes become an expert on waterproofing? Just asking.
Mike Holmes: Guarding your home against water leaks | National Post
He says, ‘Your weeping tile, also known as drain tile, is a perforated plastic pipe that is placed underground next to your basement foundation and is meant to move unwanted water away from the WALLS’… if your basement has water, damaged weeping tile could be the culprit.
Later adds, if you are already digging to replace drain tile it’s a great time to waterproof, address any cracks, Like it’s an AFTERTHOUGHT!!!.. sheesh man, that’s one of the biggest keys, determinations!!!
The weeping tile aka drain tiles are placed along the footing Mike, got it?
So when it rains or the snow melts, that water goes into the soil way ABOVE the drain tiles and on longer, heavier rains it saturates the soil waaay ABOVE the drain tiles! Increased lateral soil pressure has already occurred!
It takes a long time on most homes for water to get DOWN to the drain tiles and so when a homeowner has a crack or deteriorated rod hole or cracked deteriorated parging etc in foundation wall, THAT is why the basement leaks, NOT because of some supposed need for new weeping tiles.
See the clay drain tiles, the see the REAL REASONS why the basement leaks, has some mold and efflorescence https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EO7xIdlhI98) See all the exterior cracks/openings ABOVE the dumb weeping tiles? Well helllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllo, that is why the basement leaks, it is why most basements leak, other than those who have/get a basement back-up due to clogged lateral line etc
By the way, those clay drain tiles are THICKER, stronger than pvc or the junk black plastic perforated.
In this video, an interior basement drainage system was installed $$$$$, with NEW DRAIN TILES!!! If what you and too many others incompetently yap about was true, the basement wouldn’t leak!!! loooolll
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INFPk66SG1g) See the exterior cracks? It is not an AFTERTHOUGHT for god sakes!!! It is/was why the basement leaked at that corner man!!! duhhhhhhhhhhh
Royal Oak MI, leaky basement in one area, has nothing to do about your MYTHICAL crap that the weeping tiles could be the problem, nope, wrong.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIQ004ae9AM) 40 years doing this, seeing this, we’ve rarely replaced any drain tiles…why? Because… a) most of the time the exterior tiles were fine b) EVERY time there was a crack, cracked parging and-or other exterior openings in the foundation wall and sometimes above the foundation wall. The few times we’ve replaced some drain tiles were NOT why the basement leaked… sheesh that is one of most incompetent things we hear.
Bowed foundation wall, homeowner spent $$$$$$ on an interior basement system and sump pump, NEW DRAIN TILES!!!
Your thought process is wrong, YES it is!!!
New weeping tiles, so what happened? looolllooolllllllllllllllllllllll
New drain tiles and sump pump didn’t STOP water from entering and it didn’t relieve, remove, leseen any exterior weight/pressure that… CAUSED the wall to bow in, omfggggg absolute morons, they’ll never learn
