How does a bubbler pot work?

Keeping this in view, how does a bubbler drainage system work?

A Bubbler System is a drain system that collects storm water from the downspouts and ground water from the sump pump. It transports the storm water out to the main storm sewer, where it is directed away from the home.

Subsequently, question is, how do you install a bubbler pot? How To Install:

  1. Dig Shallow Trench. Select an area for the bubbler pot at least 8 feet from the house in line with your downspout.
  2. Connect PVC Pipe & Elbow. Using standard 4″ thin wall PVC pipe and elbow (purchased separately at your local home center).
  3. Attach Debris Filter.
  4. Back Fill Trench.

Also question is, what is a bubbler pot?

A downspout bubbler pot is a device that collects and then disburses water several feet away from a home’s foundation. It is designed to work with an underground downspout system, channeling and disbursing water into the area around the pot.

How do I keep water from pooling in my yard?

Build a creek bed to direct water away from a low spot in your yard. Or if the slope of the ground permits it, use a creek bed to drain a low spot. Start by making a swale-essentially a gentle, shallow drainage ditch. Then line it with gravel or stones and add interest with boulders, a bridge or plantings.

A bubbler pot is an underground downspout, which is a series of pipes connected to your gutter. Bubbler pots help remove standing water after a heavy rain by dispersing water evenly across your lawn so that it can soak into the soil.

How It Works:

Proper water management around the foundation of your home can be very effective at keeping the water from reaching your basement. No maintenance needed! Rugged solid lid keeps grass clippings out and can withstand the weight of a riding lawnmower! Works seamlessly with any size or shape gutters, in warm and cold climates! UnderGround Downspout work with any style downspout. The universal debris filter is extra wide to accomidate any size downspout.

Water free falls into the debris filter and flows underground through the 8 feet of PVC pipe. As water fills up in the bubbler pot the lid raises up to let water evenly flow over onto your lawn. Drainage slots in the bubbler pot lets standing water filter down into the ground. The solid drain cover will then drop down and seal out grass clippings and dirt. The center post guides and supports the lid from collapsing under the weight of a lawn mower and from being sucked up by a lawn mower. No more ugly downspouts laying across your lawn! Debris filter acts as an ice guard in cold, snowy climates. UnderGround Downspouts work year round in any climate and never need maintenance!

How To Install:

1. Dig Shallow Trench

Select an area for the bubbler pot at least 8 feet from the house in line with your downspout. You can install further then 8 feet if needed. Dig a hole 8 inches deep and 12 inches in diameter for the bubbler pot to set in. Scoop out a shallow trench from the house to the bubbler pot, slopping from 4 inches deep to 8 inches deep at the bubbler pot. Tip → Pile the dirt on a large tarp or sheet of cardboard to make dirt removal easy.

2. Connect PVC Pipe & Elbow

Using standard 4″ thin wall PVC pipe and elbow (purchased separately at your local home center). Fit one end of the pipe into the bubbler pot the other end to the 90-degree elbow. Hold the debris filter up against the house just under your downspout and measure the length of pipe needed to connect the debris filter to the elbow.

3. Attach Debris Filter

Attached debris filter to vertical 4″ pipe opening. There is no need to glue the pieces together. Simply nest the bottom of the debris filter into the pipe opening. Tip → Spray paint the exposed PVC pipe or debris filter to blend into your home’s exterior.

4. Back Fill Trench

Back fill the trench and around the Bubbler Pot with dirt and tamp down. Return sod or add grass seeds. And you’re finished!
