Drainage Problems
Standing Water

The cause of standing water is typically having a low lying area in a yard or garden surrounded by higher elevation ground, which collects standing water during rain and wet periods. By installing  Big ‘O’  perforated pipe below ground, you can create a French drain that will divert the water away from the area, and promote a dry usable surface, resolving the standing water problems.

Follow these steps for a standing water solution:

  1. Locate an area that is lower in elevation than the standing water, where the water can be diverted.
  2. Dig a trench at least 8-12 inches below ground that h as a constant downward pitch to create a gravity fed water flow.
  3. Install Big ‘O’ perforated pipe, or perforated with sock pipe in the ditch, surrounded with at least 4” inches of course gravel often referred to as ¾ stone. Enclose the pipe and stone with non-woven geotextile and cover the area with topsoil.

Big O 1

Result: The water will be absorbed into the pipe and flow downward to the area you designate. Multiple lines can be tied together for standing water drainage using a variety of T or Y couplers.
