The excess of moisture on the seasonal dacha is capable to create big problems for its owners up to buckling and bogging of the soil. Therefore if the earth is located rather low both flood and rain waters badly leave in the natural way, it is necessary to make drainage on the site.


1. The easiest and available way to create the qualitative system of drainage is to address to specialized firm. However if the site small has also no serious problems with underground waters, the by forces is better to manage. It will allow to save considerably costs of creation of drainage system.

2. Drainage of the seasonal dacha it is possible to make with own hands both opened, and closed. In the first case it is possible just to be limited to network of the drainage ditches dewatering from the site to drain shafts, and in the second it is necessary to lay in the earth of pipe at depth about a meter.

3. The majority of compact these sites does not require the full-fledged system of storm and soil drains with deepening of pipes far to the soil at all. The summer drainage system which is capable to dewater from the rooftop suffices and to quickly drain the earth after spring thawing of snow.

4.
