  • My parents' house is lower than the drainage

    My parents' house is lower than the drainage by around 2ft so when it rains hard the water gets in.

    What can I do aside from adding soil/rocks to level the lot to the road? It's a fairly big lot 600+ sqm so I'm thinking of a cheap option on how to stop water from going in.

    this is additional info: New road and drainage was constructed around 10 years ago so ever since when it's raining hard water from the drainage gets in.

      Sir,
      Ask ko lang kung anong solution sa wall leaking problem? Anong product ang magandang gamitin? Duraseal, Primero product maganda po ba o balutin na lang ng galvanized sheet? Pa share naman po ng kaalaman nyo. Salamat...

        I haven't tried using Duraseal yet but I think Primero will be a good choice as well to seal
        your wall leaking problem.

          inside the property, the lot is lower than the canal outside. the house also gets flooded.

          I'm thinking of building walls to prevent water from coming in but I'm not sure if that helps.

            Wala bang agusan ang tubig papunta sa likuran niyo? Kung meron baka pwede i-divert dun yung tubig na papasok sa bakuran niyo.

            Or kung may culvert pipe drainage sa labasan niyo, i-confirm mo kung mas mataas talaga kesa sa lote. Baka kasi yung gutter lang ang mataas.

            Kung confirmed na mataas nga ang drainage pipes kesa sa lote at walang pwedeng diversion ang flood water, no choice kundi magpabakod ng concrete sa perimeter.

            And for long term, mas mainan unti untiin niyo na ang pagpapatambak sa lote para pumantay sa kalsada.

              I second bro fourtheboys96 advice. Hopefully mas mababa ang water level ng drainage than your parent's property para at least you can divert the rainwater/flood in there. But still its just a temporary fix. Kapag malakas ang ulan chances are mag-ooverflow or magbabara yung drainage at kila erpats mo ang punta ng tubig since mas mababa siya. Best option pa din is tambakan paunti-unti yung property ng mas mataas sa road.

              Not sure pero pwede siguro kumuha ng panambak sa mga newly constructed na subdivisions for free. Tulad na lng sa amin, since most of the homeowners just moved in last year and this year maraming mga nagpamodify at nagpaextend ng bahay. Then ung mga bato na tinibag at lupang hinukay for the foundation, etc sinako at tinambak lang sa vacant lot dun sa harap at likod ng subdivision. If you can find something similar in your area pwede ka siguro mag ask kung libre or better yet sa homeowner mismo. I'm sure matutuwa pa yon since makakalibre sila sa hakot, unless they need it for someplace else. That would save you a lot of money. Just my thoughts...
