Through a collaborative effort by Dan and Uriah, the water coming off of the roof will finally flow away from the building. This is being done by using PVC pipe as downspouts and lay-flat 3-inch hose laid across the ground surface. This is a discharge hose, reddish-orange in color, and will flatten out after the water has run through it. The color and the fact that it will lay flat is a great safety factor which should help prevent trips and falls.
All hoses will extend approximately 2 feet beyond the sidewalk. The discharge hose on the Northeast side of the building will extend approximately 44 feet toward the annex building to a slight trough in the pavement and then drain toward the West. The downspout and discharge hose on the North side of the building will extend approximately 23 feet toward the annex to the same trough in the pavement. The next longest run is on the South side toward Chicago Street to extend across the flower bed to prevent moisture damage to the floor in the laundry display room.
With some luck, this should correct the moisture problem that we have been battling. When all is said and done, the cost of this project will come in at under $500.00. Thank you for your patience in this matter.
