What is weeping tile, and what does it do?

Weeping Tiles are a system of drainage tubing that is laid at or under your foundation wall at the footing to draw the water away from your home and toward the sewer or drains. When a basement is waterproofed, a weeping tile system is key to keeping the basement dry because the water is drawn away from the foundation. If your home has a sump pump, it drains into the weeping tiles drain and away from your home.

New technologies have added a sleeve or sock to the tubing so that any sediment that is in the water does not clog the weeping tile tube. The tile system is laid at the foundation and the space above is filled in with gravel so that water can filter through to drain away.
