Underground Water Ejection / Bubble Pots

In addition to in-home water ejection services, American Basements & Crawlspaces Corp. also installs underground systems in homeowner’s yards that remove excess water. One type of underground water ejection solution is a bubble pot. Bubble, or bubbler, pots are essentially underground downspouts that help remove standing water after heavy rain or melting snow. Bubble pots disperse water evenly across your yard rather than allowing it to stagnate and potentially leach into your foundation. 

These pots are installed about 10 feet away from your home’s foundation and fit in level with the ground so you can still mow without issue. 

Bubble pots should be installed by professionals like the experts at American Basements & Crawlspaces Corp. A significant amount of digging is required for bubble pot installation, so extra care must be taken to avoid hitting electric, gas or other service lines. 

 

How Does Underground Water Ejection Work?

When heavy rainfall occurs, water flows from traditional gutter systems toward the bubble pot. The water will first fall into a debris filter which catches leaves and grass; then the water is free to flow underground through the pathway of pipes. The pots have lids that lift, allowing extra water to “bubble” up from the system, hence their name. Once the water has been released into the yard, the drain cover will drop down again, preventing debris from entering.

Bubble pots are built to last and should not require maintenance unless they become damaged; this makes this underground method of water ejection an easy choice for homeowners! 

 

Does Your Home Need Underground Ejection? 

Most homes can benefit from bubble pots, but if you live near the base of a hill, in a valley, or in an area that receives high precipitation, it is strongly recommended. A properly installed underground water ejection system can prevent future foundation issues as well as mold and mildew problems stemming from leaks or basement floods.
