Due to their functions, foundations are important building elements that are in direct contact with the ground in all kinds of buildings and transfer all the loads coming from the building to the ground. Water absorbed by the concrete or proceeding by capillary means causes the reinforcement to corrode and deteriorate the integrity of the reinforced concrete. For this reason, all contact elements under ground must be removed from water.

 

Waterproofing should be started from drainage first. With a good drainage, the pressurized water that is likely to come to the foundation is removed from the foundation. The pipe diameter to be used and how many rows will vary according to the details of the project. First, the bottom cushioning of the drainage is made with gravel filling and 150 gr / m² geotextile felt is laid. After 3-4cm stone chips cushioning on the felt, drainage pipe is placed. Gravel filling is made in such a way that the pipe is closed and the felt is bundled and closed.

 

One of the most common application errors is the wrapping of felt around the pipe. The soil felt that comes with the water clogs the holes of the pipe and therefore the life of the drainage is considerably shortened.
