Here are are some pics of a wall we just finished.
Nice looking job, what kind of blocks?
They look like Versa-Lok . Nice work !
Yes they are Versa-Lok first time working with them
Is there any drainage behind that wall? Didn't see any outlets.
what Paponte said.....where da drainage at? that wall is too high and long to not have any drainage outlets on the face. from my understanding. you should have a "t" in the pipe every 25' draining out the front of the wall. thats how I was taught anyway. otherwise the wall looks well built and the product used is nice also.
I have never did it that wat of t ing it. Most of my walls has atleast 12" or more of gravel and water will follow the gravel. Also we do use pipe, but water does natural flow with it, also we backfill min. of 2' of gravel behind any wall.
The wall was engineered and we built it to specs it has a drain that runs the length of the wall at the base it has 16 inches of 3/4 rock behind the wall and 5 pulls of grid a drain is going to be installed in the drive on the top to keep the water from reaching the wall.
I got NCMA certified last year. They specify 4" perf pipe either corrigated or PVC. If PVC face holes down. They have to be daylighted every 40' of the run. I see more and more of these walls - especially commercial where there are no visable drains or visible 2" PVC. ???? What gives ??
THat looks really good.
