FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
In conducting a drain tile test, a drain tile expert will first create one to five holes in your basement, in order to inspect the interior drain tile system. They will look for any impediments to proper functioning on the outside of the system, such as tree roots. To inspect the inside of the system, the technician will insert a hose and run water through the pipes to diagnose any blockages or flow problems.
To test the functioning of the exterior drain tile system, the technician will perform what is called a “drain tile spud test.” They will first drive a “spud,” or long pipe, into the earth outside of the home to access the exterior drain tile system, and flush water through the system to ensure it reached the interior system and is effectively flushed away from your home.
