Water Coming up from the Ground

It’s normal for groundwater to make its way up to the surfaces, especially after a heavy downpour or during winter when the ground is saturated.

The flow of the water can get intensified by solid structures like a driveway, retaining walls, a water meter box, and a denser soil type. But worry not, this is natural, and the water will disappear once the ground is dry again.

However, if water is seeping to the surface and there is no visible sign of heavy rain, most likely, there is a water leak.

If you don’t fix the leak in advance, you might experience lots of problems, including sinkholes, structural damage, and mould growth on the walls and in your house basement. Also, you will spend lots of money trying to address these problems.

If you suspect a water leak is the primary cause of puddles and wet areas on the ground, consult Clean Drains immediately. Our experts will assess your situation and discuss with you the best way forward.

Reasons Why Water is Coming Up from The Ground

Before you can run into repairs, ensure you understand the specific cause of the water leak. Here is a list of the two causes and solutions to tackle water seeping from the ground.

Faulty Landscaping

If you have poorly graded landscaping, water might stand around the outside of your home. The moisture from the water will provide a perfect environment for mould growth on the wall of your house and even the basement. Water will also seep into your basement and cause lots of destruction.

Solution: You can create a ridge of dirt, which slopes away from your house to eliminate standing water. Use drains and gutter extensions to keep water away from your home.

Leaky Pipes

Water seepage from the ground can also result from leaking pipes. The sprinkler system, irrigation pipes, drinking water pipes, and even sewer pipes can age and crack, leading to a water leak. While you can fix this problem, some leaks are indicators of a bigger problem.

Solution:Hire an expert plumber at Clean Drains. If your leaks are serious, then you might have faulty plumbing. You need a professional who can identify the leaks and repair them to prevent future problems.

Do You Have Groundwater or Seepage on Your Property?

If you are finding puddles of water and wet spots in proximity to your home, and they’re no sign of recent rain, you need to check your water meter.

Before sleeping at night, turn off the water and read your water meter. In the morning, wake up and read the water meter. If it shows that water is being used, it’s most likely a leak. We recommend you consult a registered plumbing company like Clean Drains to fix the water leak.

If the water is coming up from the ground and there have been no issues with your plumbing system, it’s likely to be groundwater. Engage the service of a drain layer expert to provide you with advice on how to manage groundwater effectively.

From booking online to the completion of the job was seamless. Ben arrived super quick and was the utmost professional and really new his stuff. He took the time to explain what the problem was and what he was going to do.

Very happy customer! I can't thank Ben, Fouad & Bradley enough for fixing an electrical fault (and dodgy wiring from times gone by) to make my home safer (as well as installing some additional points, tidying up some others and installing new interconnected smoke alarms).

Great experience, they actually turned up when they said they would. The guy took the time to look for leaks other than the obvious one, and found them. Saving us a return visit. Pricing is fair. Would definitely recommend.
