Weeping Tile

Weeping tiles are pipes with little holes located underground around the basement foundation. When it rains, water filters into the ground. These pipes capture this water and take it away from the foundation walls to prevent groundwater from entering the basement. Weeping tiles may also be referred to as foundation drains.




In some older homes (pre 1985), the weeping tiles are generally connected to the sanitary sewer system. Older weeping tiles could be made of clay. In newer homes (post 1985), weeping tiles are connected to a sump pit and sump pump. The water is then either pumped to the storm sewer or discharged to the yard. Generally newer weeping tiles are made of plastic.


Check the corners of your basement regularly. If the floor is damp and/or wet, that may be an indication that your weeping tiles may not be functioning properly and need to be repaired or replaced.
