Storm Water Floods Tampa Condo | Prevention

The following project was performed to prevent storm water from flooding the condo shown in the following pics. The flooding caused upwards of $10,000.00 in water damage. This project shows the diverse abilities Tampa Bay Plumbers is capable of performing. We initially used a laser transit level to establish the overall grade of the small front landscape area in relation to the existing grade of the parking area. We determined the grade could be corrected with a combination of soil, thick mil plastic and aggregate. We essentially re-graded her front landscape area so the storm water would be channeled away from the condo and thus preventing anymore flooding. We didn’t stop there though, we also installed some sch.35 PVC pipe that directly tie the gutters into (2) overflow drainage boxes to evacuate all the storm water coming from the roof tops and directing it into the parking area. After eliminating the gutters which accounted for half of the overall flooding issue and re-grading the property, we completely replaced all sod, gravel and removed some bushes at the customers request. With in the (2) day duration of the project, she actually saw what most would consider a total transformation of her entire yard. Not only has the condo association approved the design but are excited to move forward with all the properties experiencing the same issues. Storm Water Floods Tampa Condo | Prevention
