Recently we fixed a sprinkler system that was poorly installed.

  The Sprinkler System Company that installed it didn’t know what they were doing.  There was no Master Valve installed in the Sprinkler System.  As a result, The Sprinkler Pipe between the water meter and the Sprinkler Valves stayed pressurized all the time.  This is bad during a cold snap in Oklahoma.  If a Master Valve and In-Line Pipe Drains had been installed originally, there would be no broken pipes when it got too cold.    The Sprinkler Pipes would drain automatically.

Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair is installing a French Drain inside a Nursing home in Norman Oklahoma.  The French Drain actually was in an interior court yard.  All the dirt removal for 200 foot 4 inch French Drain had to be done down the main hall of the Rest Home.    We had to go in and out of several secured doors several hundred times with wheel barrows of dirt coming out and crushed limestone going in.  The staff was very helpful, but it got very taxing for everyone.  The Senior Citizens seemed to enjoy all the commotion.

The French Drain inside the courtyard was designed to eliminate standing water and sub-surface water that was standing in low grassy areas.  Mold was starting to occur and moss was growing in several places.  The French Drain removed the standing water immediately and the soggy ground started to firm up.  The French Drain will remove a lot of under ground water in the next 24 hours and firm up the ground even more.
