Miami: Know your I & I Risk

Miami: Know your I & I Risk

Inflow and infiltration issues are mostly a seasonal problem for most places of the country. But, here in Miami with our location in the southern tip of Florida, our water table is four feet deep and 80% of our sewer mains are under water all the time. These factors cause a high occurrence of infiltration and inflow problems for our great city of Miami.

Let’s review what infiltration and inflow is. Infiltration is defined as excess water that seeps or flows into old collection systems from surrounding soil causing them to sink or collapse. Inflow is additional  water that can enter from above ground sources for instance, rain water.

Miami home or business owners may notice leaks in their roof, cellar, yard, or their foundation because of drains that are not appropriately connected to sanitary sewers. Any pipes, especially larger pipes under water are prone to buoyant forces that cause structural problems and complicate repair efforts.

Miami, if you feel you might be at risk or have noticed changes in your pipes or foundation please call us at Perma-Liner 866-336-2568.
