Overflow drains installed safely carry water to the pressure relief system’s pump where it is discharged from the structure. The 1½" pipe that provides the drainage remains close to the foundation wall so finishing the basement with the drains installed is easy.
Homes that do not have, or do not need a pressure relief system installed, should consider a window well correction.
There are many reasons that basement windows often leak. For example, heavy rains may cause the window well to fill up to the level of the window or a window may be so low to the ground that surface water runoff leaks through. However, window well drains, when paired with a pressure relief system, provide protection against such leakage.
