Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair — Solving Drainage and Standing water problems since 1993.
Do you have water seeping into your floor vents after a hard rain? Is water causing damage to your floors or carpet? Is water finding a way under your foundation after a thunder storm? Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair designs and installs Drainage Systems that can help stop the damage. We utilize: French Drains, Surface Drains, Channel Drains, and Sump Pumps to protect property. Connecting gutter-downspouts into the Drainage System is always a good idea where possible.
The need for Drainage Systems is increasing in Oklahoma. During heavy thunder storms, homes and business need a way to drain water away. Storm water can cause many kinds of damage. Here are just a few:
1. Driveways and Sidewalks can crack and deteriorate
2. Foundations can crack move or shift
3. Vents and ducts can fill with water
4. Mold can be allowed to grow
5. Trees and Plants and grass can be damaged or drown
Too much water is never a good thing!

Don’t kid yourself, Experience Counts!
We take many things into account when providing a Drainage Diagnostic for a Customer. We determine:
1. What is the Primary Water Source to the problem? Where is the water coming from?
2. Is there a Secondary Water Source? Other Places that water may be coming from. All Drainage Problems have more than one source!
3. How many Subsequent Water Sources are present? Some complex Drainage Problems have many water sources.
4. What exit points are available for gravity to move water away from the problem area? Where are we trying to take the water to, and how is it
going to be released? Is more than one exit point possible to increase capacity?
5 How much water must be moved? What Size Drain Pipe is necessary to lessen the chance of being overwhelmed by flooding? This is a tough
consideration. (Larger Pipe – Larger Cost to Install)
These are just a few of the considerations for any Drainage System Diagnostic.
- 4 Inch Drain Pipe running under sidewalk
- Drainage System running to exit point on driveway
The Drainage System shown in the three above pictures consisted of the following:
Three Gutter Downspouts in the front yard were connected to 4 inch ADS solid Drain Pipe with Large Drainage Gutter Connections. Three lateral 4 inch Pipes were run from each gutter to one outflow pipe moving the water to two exit Pop Up Emitters. One of the Drain Pipes ran under the sidewalk to reach the Exit Drain Pipe.
This Drainage System had two exit points. One Pop-Up Emitter was on the edge of the driveway in the front yard. The other Pop-Up Emitter was installed in the back yard near the property line. Two exit points allows for a much larger Water Drainage Capacity. (During Heavy Rains The Drainage System Can Move More Water Faster)
The back yard Exit Pipe then connected to 55 feet of 4 inch French Drain that was installed along the SW corner of the house. The French Drain provided a protective barrier for that room of the house where water had previously been leaking into the floor vents. Two Gutter Down Spouts were also connected in the back yard to the Drainage System.
